Inspired by strong women; made for strong women.

I've heard that you should never meet your hero. That isn't the way that things worked out for me. My hero not only gave birth to me, but was a wonderful example of how to get through the challenges of family deaths, illnesses, and more with a smile on your face and courage in your heart. In addition to passing on her strength, my mom passed down her knowledge of knitting and crocheting. Oftentimes, we would sit down to a movie together just to have time to craft and bond. This started when I was in elementary school and has continued into the present. I may live five hours from her now, but I still call home if I need any crafting questions answered.

While I was in college, I realized that I wanted to do more with my crafts than simply make them and set them on a shelf. I wanted to find some way to pass on the strength, confidence, and self-esteem that my mother passed on to me. Out of this idea, Gillywing Creates was born. Mom and I are both represented in my logo (blue for mom, green for me) and in the shop's name (Mom loves owls, I love betta fish). The mission of my shop is to create hand knit and crochet accessories that will encourage self-esteem, self-acceptance, and confidence in women today. I believe that all women are strong and that this strength of heart, body, will, and mind should be held to the highest regard. Therefore, I invite you to look through the items in my shop to find one that emphasizes your particular brand of strength.

Each of the items in my shop has been handmade by me in a smoke-free home. I do have a dog and a cat. Though I try very hard to keep their fur out of my items (each item is kept in an air tight Ziploc bag and is washed/dried before shipment), you may notice that one or two pet hairs find their way to you. As much as I would love to, I cannot guarantee that all items will be pet-free.

Each pictured item is ready to ship unless otherwise stated. However, if you would prefer a different color, please message me on Etsy, contact me on Twitter with the handle @Gillywing_etsy, on Instagram with the handle @gillywingcreates, or send an email to gillywingcreates [!at] gmail.com to discuss the item you have in mind. Remember, the items are here to celebrate you. I want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase.

    Hello! Welcome to Gillywing Creates! All of the items here are handmade by me. When I'm not making lovely gifts with yarn, I'm working hard as an English teacher and book reviewer.
