A busy week!!!

WOW, has it ever been a busy week! It feels like I've barely had more than a minute to relax! Although, I did get a free evening to go see the new Resident Evil 3D movie with a friend! We've gone to all the previous ones together so it's a bit of a tradition. I really enjoyed it, if only for nostalgia! The 3D zombies were pretty badass though!

So, last week I joined the EtsyVeg team! I have been a vegetarian all my life, and it's something that I really hold dear to my heart. I haven't really had a chance to interact with anyone on the team yet, besides an introduction, but I had a chance to look through some entries of the "Autumn Leaves" challenge and here is my favourite submission so far! Love the colours! I may just have to whip a project up using some fall coloured yarn!

My most recent additions to the Kittens Mittens Etsy Shop include a cute blue toque, and a pair of adorable, green owl mittens. The mittens were super fun to make, and I even sewed shiny sequins for his eyes. My boyfriend helped me take the pictures for these items. It was such a beautiful, sunny day that we were going to go for a hike in the trails by my house anyway, so why not have a mini photo shoot? :) I hope you enjoy my new items!!

New Item Alert!

This is a turquoise hobo bag, just posted on Kittens' Mittens! I really love this purse, it's such a unique shape. It was pretty complicated to make, it involved creating each triangular piece (8 in total), and then attaching it all together at the end. I also sewed in a black fabric lining, and chose a toggle button enclosure. The strap is actually recycled from a different purse, which was worn out and would have been thrown away. The strap was still in great shape so I figured I would salvage it instead of buying something brand new.. it's always good to help the environment when you can!

I love trying to mix and match diferent fabrics and textures, and I think this bag worked out really well. It really is a one-of-a-kind item! I hope you like it, I had a lot of fun making it! :)

Etsy Shop Now Open!!

Hello everyone! I thought it would be fun to start a blog and meet some fellow crafters and artists! I will be posting about my own handmade creations that I create for myself, my friends, and for my Etsy store - Kittens' Mittens! I love to knit and have been for at least 10 years. My favourite things to create are mittens, but I've also gotten into making hats, scarves, fingerless gloves, and purses.

These Snowman Mittens are currently in my Etsy shop! I think the sequins are just adorable, they were a ton of fun to make! Make sure to check out my shop to see the rest of my knit creations!
