Meet Henry the Alpaca

I have been learning the Japanese art of Amigurumi. It’s crocheting objects with yarn. It’s a beautiful and interesting art with so many variations man’s ideas on things to make.

Checkout my pin below on my latest project. A cute Alpaca. Amigurumi is not an easy art to learn it takes a lot of practice and patience but I think I am making progress!

This week at Vickys Handcrafted Design Headquarters…….

It’s been an exciting week here at Vickys Handcrafted Designs. I have launched a new newborn gift pack full of beautiful handmade products. Included in the pack is the gorgeous Bijou blanket I have been working on. The pattern was designed by Stitched up Craft. I have made a few of her designs and absolutely love them.

I have designed this pack to give comfort to the newborn baby and mum. Included in the pack are some beautiful items to create a relaxing atmosphere in your nursery or baby area, including a relaxing candle from Em and Me Candle shop and a beautiful book to read to your child called Why I love going to Grandma’s house. By L C Wilson. It’s a gorgeous book full of beautiful illustrations and a beautiful story of a child’s memories visiting her grandmother.

Along with the blanket, candle and book I have included two beautiful keepsakes. A plaque by Etch your heart out and a gorgeous clay bear motif made by Designs By Sasha.

All in all it’s a beautiful and unique gift pack that would bring joy to a new mum and her Bub. Or buy it for yourself and your new baby!

Shop direct from my blog http://www.vickyshandcrafteddesigns.blog

This pack is available in Australia only as at present I don’t have the postage facilities available to sell overseas. Hopefully some time in the future I will.

Over the next few months I will be releasing more gift packs and individual pieces. I can’t wait to show you each one as I finish them.

Take care everyone and thank you for reading my blog.

Work in Progress – Wednesday

Are you looking for affordable handmade gift? …. I have some great ideas for you!

http://instagram.com/vickys_handcrafted_designs

I truly love handmade goods. I still have many handmade items given to me by my mother and mother in law. I have saved them to pass them on to my daughter.

I wanted to pass on the beautiful tradition of gifting handmade goods onto everyone.

My favourite handmade items are crocheted. I will be debuting my new range of blankets, toys and spa accessories.

I have listed some items in my Etsy shop already.

Monday Motivation…..New beginnings!

As COVID continues to dig deeper into our daily lives and the rest of the world feels like its amargedon! Being motivated to do anything seems to be getting more difficult as time goes by.

I felt like this too but in some way life also has to go on even if its in our stay home reduced bubble. I have been working on a special product for a while now. Something I think will be great for an expectant mum, especially at this present time. A handmade gift is always something special. The time taken and the love put into each item can never be replicated in a production item.

With my handmade gifts I want to give each person a piece of history, a piece of belonging, a tranquility in this otherwise choatic world. Take a look below at my new handmade baby gift box.

In this box there is a crochet baby blanket, baby beanie, baby booties and soft toy. As well a cute wicker heart with ribbon and underneath the blanket a special gift for mum! A book of mandala’s to colour. This will give mum some peaceful and quiet time to relax.

I made each item and the book is from Kylie King from https://thephoenixwithin.com.au/ Kylie is an accomplished author and business coach and a mum of 3. She juggles business and home life and offers coaching and hypnotherapy to clients. I have known Kylie for 3 years now and she is an amazing person. She has always encouraged me to follow my dreams, which I have done now.

The packaging is from https://facebook.com/mariasdesignercreations. Maria has provided me with many marketing and packaging items. I love the simplicity and elegance in her product range. Check out her page for ideas for your next product range.

I will be offering more of these packs as I complete them. The next one will be for a new born girl. As well as gender neutral packs. I will debut each one as I complete them.

In the meantime you can check out my Etsy store https://www.etsy.com/au/VickysHandcraftedDes/listing/1054513148/baby-boy-gift-set?utm_source=Copy&utm_medium=ListingManager&utm_campaign=Share&utm_term=so.lmsm&share_time=1629096172845

for details on how to obtain this pack. Please note postage is to Australia only.

Thank you as always for reading my blog. And if you are a budding entrepreneur and not sure what to do about your idea, It takes time to put an idea or dream together, but there is no greater feeling than when the dream comes true… Until next time dream big!

Vicky
