This velvet shawl is in green and purple velvet yarn, and is heavy, super soft, and luxurious. It is very feminine and fancy dress in style, and would go very well with a black dress. This is also a very giftable item that the recipient is sure to love.

This shawl was originally called the “Bridesmaid Shawl,” and is based on a pattern by Michele DuNaier. However, this shawl is a lot more versatile than simply being a bridesmaid shawl, and so I am categorizing it differently to the original pattern creator’s label.
This shawl is of medium weight and is very comfortable. It is also very feminine and lacy. In tones of blue and white, it is very cheerful, but of course, it can be custom made in any color combination.
This is generally a spring, summer, or autumn shawl, and not much in the way of keeping you warm in wintertime. The shawl dresses up any outfit. I tend to use Red Heart yarn for this item, but am willing to experiment with Lion Brand Feels Like Butta, Bernat Softee yarns, or Bernat velvet yarns, if a client requests a softer or lighter-weight product.

The Lacy Bumblebee Dog Sweater is a yellow and black striped dog sweater with yellow ruffles around the arms, a black ruffle near the tail, and a black hood with a yellow ruffle and stuffed antennae.
The sweater is relatively warm – and can be made in a tighter, thicker stitch for short-hair dogs – and grabs a lot of attention when walking the dog at the park. This item can be adjusted for size and pattern to suit the dog type the sweater is being made for.

The Celtic Weave Lapghan is a small throw blanket that is perfect for just covering the lap. It is crocheted in vibrant contrasting colors of reds and greens, separated by borders in black. The depth and density created by the Celtic Weave stitch ensures a thick, warm blanket. This lapghan cozy and comfortable – perfect for chilly settings.
This blanket has a pleasant weight for winter time, and is perfect for cold days in the car or is just a nice blanket to keep your lap warm while you watch tv in your favorite recliner. Lapghans are small and easily portable. This one folds up relatively small and also looks great draped across the back of a recliner. The colors in green and red make it a great blanket for Christmastime, but the black borders and particular shades of color make it a blanket that you don’t automatically think “Christmas” when you see it – making it a year-round blanket if you choose. This blanket can be made in any color combination you like.

The Lemon Meringue Lapghan is a small throw blanket that is perfect for just covering the lap. It is crocheted in bright, cheerful yellows and white. The three-dimensional crocodile stitch creates peaks and valleys that resemble the meringue on a pie. This lapghan is surprisingly warm, despite the size of the holes in the blanket, because of the three-dimensional depth that helps the blanket hold warmth next to you while it is on your lap.
This blanket has a pleasant, light weight, and is perfect for car rides, visits to the movie theater, or any situation in which you have to sit in an environment that is cooler than you prefer. Lapghans are small and easily portable, and this one would even fit, folded up, in a large handbag or beach bag.

The Caron Summer Mist pattern is for a throw blanket, but this has been adapted to fit a queen size bed. It is intentionally shorter from top to bottom than it is from side to side, so that the blanket does not get sucked down between the bed and the footboard of a bed frame, and so that there is extra blanket for both sides of the bed – no one is likely to be able to steal the covers with this afghan!
Being that this is such a large blanket, it takes quite a bit of yarn – as well as time. This is a very big project, but the end result is lovely. This is a blanket that has a nice heavy weight to it and a good amount of warmth. The yarn is soft and cozy. This blanket calls for five colors and can be made in any color combination you choose.

The Colorful Tilda Doll is a rather free-spirited style of doll, who wears colorful, mismatched clothing that is made with Red Heart brand yarn in white, green, and two different kind of rainbow variegated yarns (all colors can be altered to suit your tastes). She has green and white striped stocking legs and is wearing a variegated color/dark rainbow jumper. The jumper has golden ties on the sides of the legs and a front pocket with stitches showing as part of the style. Her hair can be either a skein of light rainbow colored yarn, or it can be crocheted pink velvet yarn in spirals that are tied up in a ponytail with rainbow yarn. The version of the doll that has loose yarn hair comes with a drawstring-adjustable bonnet in variegated colors of your choice. Her shoes are crocheted boots in variegated blues and greens. This doll can be made with safety eyes or button eyes.
