Take a look at my latest Tiktok video on a pattern testing I have finished for crochet designer. Catherine Crochets.
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!

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.
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.

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!
Sometimes when you let go……..you gain. This week has certainly taught me that lesson! I let go of my fears, my anxiety and constant worrying and just learnt to enjoy and savour every moment. And what an exciting week it has been!

The Art of Crochet
For those of you who have been following my blog for a while now, you may have seen my Art of Crochet squares. I truly love this series as it teaches you step by step on how to crochet different stitches. I have learnt so much, so far and every week there is a new square in the series, which you then sew together to form a blanket! Check out your local newswagent or magazine distributor to see if they have the series for you to buy. Take a look at my instagram page http://instagram.com/vickys_handcrafted_designs for more progress details.
