Patterns

Berry Nice to Meet You!

I’ve been in a bit of a funk as of late, both creatively and in general. Last night I went to work on making new items for my Etsy shop and decided to make something I wanted to instead. I knew I wanted to make something cute with velvet yarn, and took to pulling books off the shelves to make something quick. Then I thought to myself that I could make my own pattern and that I needed to work up something quick and small to get my mojo back. And voila! Meet Berry!
