Once upon a time I was a professional costume designer/builder. Then I met a boy. You know how that goes. Now I am a Stay At Home Mom in NJ. We have twin girls who were born in July '07. The artist in me can not stay still, and we could use more income, so here I am! I love creating knit and crochet patterns, sewing (obviously!), book making, well...creating just about anything.
We also have a creative hobby. In some of our free time we are Medieval Re-creationists.
You can learn more about me, and see lots of fun snaps of my children and other creations on my blog, ~or~ You can keep tabs on my creations on my facebook page, both are linked below with my other crafty pages.
Thanks for stopping by!
This design earned first place in the accessories category of the 2014 CGOA Design Competition.
Wrap yourself in the season and keep the chill off this fall! Each leaf is made individually and then joined with the border round using the join~as~you~go single crochet method. Add some beads down the veins of the leaves to bring some sparkle to your evenings. There are 2 options for the leaves, one is a single color leaf, and one is a 2 color leaf. They are made the same way, just with a color change at the vain. There is also a chart for the leaf pattern, and many full color photos!
Always feel free to contact me at email@example.com with any questions and I will get back to you ASAP. You can also visit me at my Jessie At Home facebook page:
