Christmas in July

Christmas in July

My mom (Jerry&Kay) and I thought it would be fun to get a little festive this summer and celebrate Christmas in July! So, we spent some time planning, shopping, and making this assortment of holiday crocheted items. We created some of our own patterns and also used some vintage patterns from a crochet book from the 60s that my mom has had, in her words, "forever."

And we are offering 15% off all Christmas items in the shop and a variety of other items. We created this cheerful mug cozy and coaster set that has an elegant touch with beading on the Christmas tree and a special bead button. We have options for a larger Starbucks sized mug or a standard souvenir sized mug.

My mom made these beautiful poinsettia doilies. I thought they were also from a vintage pattern, but she just informed me that she found the pattern in Crochet 101 by Deborah Burger. She made a set of four 6-inch doilies and an individual 8-inch one.

I really enjoyed crocheting this adorable elf baby hat. I have admired this style of baby hat for a long time and added a bit of whimsy with the bubbly edge and extra large pom pom.

Here is a closer look at the Christmas tree on the mug cozy.
