EtsyHooker of the Week --- GwenGoods

Flower Motif

This week we would like to honor Gwen Goods. She is a great team member who is very active with the team by suggesting team members for EtsyHooker of the Week, being responsible for the promo thread, posting often in the team forums, and supporting other team members. Her shop is filled with lovely items that can be used in a variety of ways, like the multi-colored flower above.

Crochet Snap Clips -Small

Gwen also has these lovely hair clips that have been covered with her crochet. She is sure to have your favorite color or something to go with any outfit in her shop. If not, just contact her with your color ideas.

Groovy Girls V-neck Dress

Do you have a Groovy Girl in your house? If you do, then be sure to check out the cute outfits Gwen has created for them. I like how well this dress appears to fit the doll, with even, small stitching that makes the dress solid and gap free.

EtsyHooker of the Week --- JuliaEmily

Unlock the door

Sometimes crochet can take unexpected forms, like in the case of items in JuliaEmily's shop. She crochets with materials that do not immediately come to mind when one thinks of crochet. For example, the pendant above is crocheted with copper wire.

Flutter by butterfly

It is hard for me to imagine making an item look delicate with copper wire, but this butterfly certainly looks like it is delicately perched on the chain.

Tiger eye cuff

JuliaEmily also incorporates stones into her crochet work, like this cuff.
