Thinking of christmas shopping? Here are some ideas..

I love to create things. Drawing, painting, and sewing are my relaxing outlets.

In my shop, I have handmade cards and accessories. I like having one of a kind or unique things, and therefore make one of a kind, and unique things. My sewn creations are sewn with a vintage sewing machine that was passed down to me.

I love to make purses from sweaters that are no longer needed or wanted. Upcycling gives them a whole new life! They're not always easy to work with. The sweater material stretches and pulls in unimaginable ways. I take extreme care, (and use a lot of pins) when making these bags.

My newer style of totes are super fun to make. I love the flexibility I'm allowed while designing the bags. The prices for these bags differ according to hardware used, hand stitched embellishments, and type of closure.
A somewhat newer addition to my shop are leg warmers. These are fun ways to keep your legs warm...yes, they REALLY work! Now you can wear your favorite skirts and dresses year round!
My Shop:


My name is Coral, and I have 4 wonderful (grown up) children and are blessed with a precious grandson.
I began  crocheting in 1969 when I was 15 years old and started knitting in 1984 when I was pregnant with my fourth child.
My Mom was my greatest inspiration., she was an avid knitter and made the most awesome sweaters and scarves for all our family and friends. 

As a professional artist for the past 40 years, I'm excited to become a member of Etsy, because it reaches out to the global art community.
I earned a BA in Studio Art from Elmira College and have exhibited my artwork nationally. Having owned and operated a commercial studio & gallery for 14 years, I've learned which pieces of my art are popular and have offered them here on Etsy for all of the people who are fond of angels. I believe that angels dwell in the space between our
heartbeat and they are always with us.

Hand Knitted Baby Cardigan Pattern

By Popular Demand!
This is in one size only - takes for ever to figure out other sizes!
For chest 10" - finished measurements about 14"
Sleeve 3"
You will need:
2 balls of a soft yarn that woks with 3.25mm (US 3 Needles)
A button

tension is 25sts and 50 rows for a 4x4 inch square

If you are a beginner you may not understand this pattern - for more experienced knitters, I am sure you will see the 'pattern' of the decrease rows forming the raglan)
I think this was originally a Debbie Bliss pattern i had written down somewhere so please forgive me if there are any mistakes - as i keep saying, I am hopeless at writing down patterns and i just had some notes on a scrap of paper!

cast on 45 sts
knit until back measures 3" ending with a wrong side row
cast off 4 sts at beginning of next 2 rows
leave remaining 37 sts on a spare needle

sleeves (I  knit both at the same time)
cast on 29 sts
K 7 rows
increase:* k3, m1, k to last 4 sts m1, k3
knit 7 rows*
repeat *…

2 needle fingerless gloves

This is an easy pattern that can be adapted according to your skill.
I used worsted weight yarn and US 5 needles.
You need just over 50gms of yarn.
I also found that knitting them both at the same times ensures that they bout turn out the same !

Cast on 42 sts
Knit 20 rows in k2 p2 rib
on the 20th row place markers this way:
k20 place marker, k2, place marker, k20
the 2 sts between the markers will form the increase for the thumb.

Switch to stocking stitch (1 row K - right side- 1 row P - wrong side)
Knit to marker, (20 sts)
knit twice in the next stitch and in the one after that (the sts between the markers)
next row and all wrong side rows, Purl
Knit 20 sts (you have reached the marker)
knit twice in next stitch, K2 (till next marker) and K twice in the stitch before the marker

Continue this way, always increasing a stitch at each marker till you have 16sts between the markers.
k 2 rows then with right side facing, k20, CO 16, k20 (shaping the thumb)
next row, (W side) knit …

An easy shawl pattern

I wrote this as i knitted it so if you find any mistakes let me know!

The cast on sts are the top of the shawl, the cast off will be the bottom. This is a very basic pattern that you can then embellish - i used an eyelet pattern on random rows.(k2tog YO) The first stitches should not be slipped (as i usually do when knitting) but knitted.
You can use any yarn you like with its corresponding needles. there really is no gauge
You can also knit it to any size. Just remember that the final amount of stitches you have will be its width and the number of rows you knit will be the length. You can check that on a swatch and calculate accordingly

Cast on 7 stitches.
Row 1 (RS): k2, yo, k1, yo,place marker k1 place marker, yo, k1, yo, k2.
Row 2 (WS): K2 , P to last 2 sts knit last 2 sts (and on all WS)
Row 3 (RS): k2, yo, k to marker, YO, k1,move marker YO, k to last 2 stitches, YO, k2.
and so on

So to give a quick recap.
The 1st 2 sts of every row are always K followed by YO
Before the 1st marker, there…
