    This was perfect, made very quickly, and I received it within days of ordering it. Excellent quality. The little girl I purchased it for was so excited when she received it. The room this purse has is unbelievable. Thank you!

    I asked Cathy the Creator for help with a custom baby gift: I needed hedgehogs, soft fabric and absorbency! I wanted to recreate a burp cloth (snot wiper, drool catcher). Cathy helped me select fabrics, coordinated a thread color, and took care of all the details from laundering the fabrics to maximizing the output from the yard of material. She even wrapped it all in a pretty bow, ready for giving! I can't wait to give a handmade gift to my friend to welcome her new baby boy.

    The quality is fantastic and it looks even better in person. I'm not one to buy myself nice hats and scarves. I usually just get cheap ones. Glad I got a nice quality one for a change. It's soft, the colors are so pretty, and I constantly get compliments. Will definitely buy from this seller in the future. I'm thinking maybe holiday gifts, for the family!

    Thick and SOFT! That's how I would describe this cowl. The plus is that the colors match so perfectly to the colors on the Jamaican flag!!!! And based on the criss-cross pattern of the material, it even looks like it's a bunch of mini flags in the design - how perfect is that?!! No heat nah go escape from yuh neck when yuh wear dis - fi real! This gets a perfect 10!! Highly satisfied!

    This is the 2nd of 3 cowls that I purchased and this one is MINE! So very proud to wear this cowl because it truly represents the colors of the Jamaican flag. The color are on point! It is oh so soft and pairs perfectly with my new black coat. I have received so many compliments! It sure makes getting ready to go outside in the cold a lot less drab. Mi seh - dis so nice, mi love, love, love mi cowl!

    This is one of 3 scarves that I purchased - this one is for one of my daughters. She is tall and has a longer neck so this was perfect for her. The colors are just as you see it - perfect colors that represent the Jamaican flag. I received this scarf beautifully packaged and ready to send to my daughter. Such class! My daughter is going to LOVE this! The quality and softness of the material - an added plus!!

    I love my cowl !!! It helps keep me warm and toasty and looks great with my winter coat. Cathy gave me what I asked for -- in the colors and yarn I wanted. The cowl was delivered very timely. I couldn't ask for anything better as I've had several compliments, too.

    Insanely soft! This was custom made for me as a gift for a friend. I'm beyond impressed with the ease of communication and promptness of finished prodcut to my doorstep. I will totally order from here again for other custom items. I cannot recommend Cathy enough.

    I started crocheting as a means to sooth my soul, donating hats to a local NICU. I found I was able to make lovely items that people wanted for themselves and gifts! Every year around Christmas time I return to my roots making those NICU hats though.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Do I make customized items? Ab-so-freaking-lutely!

Any listing (Past or Present, with the exception of the I'll Never Make This Again Blanket), I can customize it for you with regard to size and color. Just send me a message, using the 'Ask Question' button at top right of page - I'm happy to work for you!

What Kind Of Yarn Do You Use?

Typically I only crochet in Caron (Simply Soft) or I Love This Yarn. However, I have been known to impulse shop something that I just love the feel of. I can also make a custom item in a preferred yarn brand upon request.

Care instructions

Crochet items are made to stand the test of time; (the rough and tumble lifestyle of babies & toddlers who drag their woobie with them everywhere they go, and my blankets are no exception)!

Machine washable (although, I wash them prior to shipping on delicate with Tide Free) and dryer friendly on low settings (although I do recommend flat dry if you are worried about keeping the shape).

So, Baby - get it dirty / wash it plenty, live life and don't be worried that your new purchase can't hack it.

Do you have Local Pick-Up?

Of course I do! For anyone looking to purchase a listing, and willing to meet in the Fairport/Rochester NY area, I'm happy to offer local pick up.

Prior to purchase, please click the 'Ask Question' button on the top right of the listing page and request a local pick up so that I can waive any shipping fees.
