New Booties at Etsy – Roll Top Cuff Baby Boots

I added a couple of baby booties to my Imperial Crochet Etsy shop today.

I used a new pattern to create them and I think they turned out pretty darn cute.

The pattern I used was purchased at Etsy too!

I crocheted the first pair in a blue and off-white 100% acrylic yarn DK weight yarn that I purchased from Deramores.  I really like this yarn.  It was wonderful to work with.  I used the recommended size hook for the size bootie I wanted and I guess my tension is a bit off from the pattern creator’s was because mine came out 4 inches long which is a bit larger than I expected them to be.

When I made the next pair, in green on green (same kind of yarn, Deramores Studio DK) I used a smaller hook and they came out to be the 3 1/2 inch long newborn size I intended to make.

This is a chart I found that has baby bootie sizes on it.

The sizes on this chart line up with the sizes I was given on the first baby bootie pattern I bought so I think they’re correct.  If you have a different size chart please share it, or any other feedback you might have, in the comments section.

Anyway, thank you so much for stopping by to take a look!  I appreciate it greatly.

Have You Seen the Larger Featured Images at Etsy Yet?

Over the last couple of days, I began seeing Etsy shops with one large featured image and some smaller ones off to the side of it and I was like, Hey!  How come my Etsy shop doesn’t look like that?

Since I don’t use a banner in my shop, I really like the way the large image stands out.

I started playing with my images but couldn’t for the life of me figure out what to click on to make the big picture happen.

So… I did some snooping on the forums and learned that if you have five featured items in your shop, you’ll get this great effect.  Previously I only had four starred.  If you have an Etsy shop, you’ll understand what I’m talking about.  If you don’t, don’t worry.  It really doesn’t matter. 

I’m still not sure how to choose the first image (the larger one) but I suspect it’s because that was the first one I chose, but I’m not sure.  For me, it’s my booties and that’s the one I would have chosen as the largest image.

Anyway, stop by my shop, Imperial Crochet, to see what I’m talking about.

How about you?  Do you have an Etsy shop?  Have you noticed the new larger image display option?  Do you like the “BIG” featured photo option? Or will you keep the smaller images in your store?

Please feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.  I love hearing from my readers.

Tummy Time Baby Blankets

A new addition to my Etsy shop!

Yesterday, I added a couple of new baby blankets to my Etsy shop.  They’re made with super soft Bernat Chunky Baby Yarn which is a 5 weight so it’s a bit thicker than regular worsted weight or thinner DK weight.

I did a half double crochet stitch into the back loop to create an almost knitted look.  This gives the blanket a nice deep texture and allows for extra warmth and thick cushioning.

These little blankets make perfect Tummy Time mats for baby and are also extra warm and cozy for wrapping around the baby on chilly days in the stroller and cool evenings blanketing the child on its way, and in its car seat for a ride home from Grandma’s house.

I’ve added two different color blankets so far.

Pastel Multicolor with White Stripes

Pastel Multi Color and White Tummy Time Baby Blanket

Tummy Time Blankets Make GREAT Baby Shower Gifts!

Tummy time is an important part of baby’s growth and development.  My extra thick crocheted blankets help make it a soft and cozy experience.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look!
