I mentioned my new line of items is inspired by nature, right? If I didn't, I'm saying it again.
I'm completely inspired and obsessed with the natural world. So, it only fits that my items are beginning to resemble what you can find there. Most recently I've added something new for MissNissCraftworks. I've developed a line of bath/body care that are reminiscent of spring and summer. Washcloths, scrubbies, and makeup removers are the bulk of it. In all honesty, you could use them in the kitchen, but I think they're too pretty to scrub pans!
One of my absolute favorite new items are these 'Forget-Me-Not' Make-up Removers. I was completely smitten with the idea of reusable makeup removers and thought the wording of the flower was a perfect play on works. 'Don't forget to treat your face!' Okay, admittedly a little silly, but I like it.
The photo I was inspired by is the bottom right. I thought forget-me-nots were gorgeous flowers, but the vibrancy of this photo really stuck out to me. So, I did my best to replicate these delicate little things into washcloth for something just as delicate, your face!
I am also offering these lovely leaf washcloths. I'd like to say the pattern is mine, but it is not. Nevertheless, I couldn't resist knitting my own leaves to sell. They fit very well with my theme! I love the shape and the green colors. It really makes you yearn for spring. Luckily you can have these inside to remind you of the the real lush, green leaves that are absent from our trees at the moment.
Finally, we have the scrubbies/loufas. I fashioned them after some of my favorite summer flowers. Top left is the sunflower, top right is the zinnia, and bottom left is the daisy. I'm still working on photos and editing, so that's why the pictures of these don't quite match the others. The sunflower and daisy are listed, though, with some not so great photo!
Since I listed those, I have added a hand strap on the back. It makes it easier to hold these flower scrubbies when washing. Plus it looks really nice.
That's it for now. Until next time!
It's been a little while and I thought I'd give a little update. Things here at MissNissCraftworks have been insanely busy. I've had many special orders from some lovely Moms for an amigurumi bunny I've designed. I like to call him 'Garden Bunny,' but to those who have asked for him he's Harry the Bunny since he looks like a character from a beloved baby/children's show. I'm debating whether or not I'll put him up for sale permanently in the shop and/or sell the pattern. All in dear time!
Another exciting update is that I will be doing a craft show this April. It's a fundraiser for Juvenile Diabetes, and since I have a little cousin who has it I figured it'd be a perfect fit. I'll have a plethora of new designs for spring at the time, so I'm hopeful for a good show! My only challenge is to create a kick-butt set up in order to compete with actual vendors who will be there (think pampered chef, tupperware, etc.) I have some good ideas, though. I just need to find and make a few things to get it pulled together. Look for an article on that!
I will also be considering attending the Aledo Rhubarb Festival in June. It's a big event and I hear is quite fun!
Some of the new things I'll be rolling out this spring include a self designed line of luxury loufas (scrubbies ... I haven't quite decided what to call them), make up removers, and washcloths. Bluebirds, Goldfinches, and Robins will be welcomed back once I finish them, including nests and eggs for children's play! The felt dahlia (flower) barrettes are already back in shop with a few new colors and sets. So fun for Spring!
For now that's about it! I better get back to crocheting bunnies ;)
Just in time for Valentine's Day! I made these lovely heart coasters for the season, but honestly they are perfect year round. I absolutely love the delicate look of them. The mitered center is quite a different look than one normally would find in a crochet heart.
If you'd like a set you'll have to personally contact me through here, Etsy, or FB. I'd be more than happy to suit your needs! Or for now, simply gaze on the beauty of these hearts. :)
