Bought this as a gift for a friend who's having a baby in a few weeks and she absolutely LOVED it! Great quality, cute designs, and overall good value!

My Life of Crafting

I grew up in a very crafty family. My mom and my aunts all like to sew, cross stitch, knit, crochet, and more. My Oma, Dutch for Grandma, did all sorts of crafts and she taught me how to knit and crochet at the age of 8. That is where it all began...

I picked up knitting and crochet again after visiting a new local yarn shop (or LYS). I took a few classes there to renew my skills, but I am mostly self taught in knitting and crochet.

As for the sewing, I am 5'1" so even most "short" or "petite" pants are still too long on me. So I learned how to hem my jeans and other pants. That led to an interest in sewing, and realizing I can make fun gifts for friends and family. I am self taught, and still learning with each project that I complete!

Now as a teacher I have sewn curtains and pillowcases for my classroom as well as made crochet animals for the kids to play with. I use my crafts as stress relief, but Etsy helps me use it to add a little to my income as well. :)

Note: There are no photos of my shop because I don't have a fancy shop or craft room like some. I create in my living room and sew on my dining room table. A craft room would be my dream come true!

Welcome to A Rainy Day Designs: knit, crochet, & sew!

All of my items make great gifts! Take a look and maybe you'll find the perfect gift for one of your loved ones.

My family and friends encouraged me to share my gifts and talents of knitting, crochet, and sewing. I hope you enjoy these items as much as I do.

My philosophy is to make items that people can give as gifts or enjoy for themselves. All of the items in my shop are available for customizing.

I make and package every item in my smoke-free, pet-free home. If you have any questions please convo or email arainydaydesigns [!at]

Each item is handmade individually and what is pictured is what is for sale unless noted in the item description. Also, items are made upon order unless stated otherwise.

-I make no guarantee I can recreate an item due to yarn and fabric supply.
-Check back often because I never know what yarn or fabric I'll find next.
