They Say...


...that the best things come in small packages. While I don't advise believing everything *they* say, I do hope this has a bit of truth to it!
~*~
From time to time, my Etsyfriends Team hosts a team Challenge- with prizes going out to some of the lucky voters. This time the theme is "Stocking Stuffers", and voting will go from Nov. 1-8. While I had the idea for these items a long time ago, it just hung in the wings, waiting for the right time to fly.

~*~
So, whether you're in the market for a stocking stuffer or Hanukkah gift, these are the perfect addition to any crafter's project bag or work space. The original, handmade tape measure cozy combines form and function; tape measure works with the cozy ON. Pull to desired length, press exposed button in the center to retract. Each one is finished off with a vintage button to ensure that it is a one-of-a-kind treat!
($12, tape measure included. Look for them in sosorosey next week.)
~*~
I'd love to hear what you think of my idea, and I'll be sure to remind you when voting has begun. Special note: due to a pumpkin patch field trip tomorrow, Makeover Monday will be delayed until Tuesday. Have a great week :)

Jennie, I am continually in awe of your creative genius. This is such a fantastic idea. I will be voting for you!

Christi Miller said...

Great idea and very nicely done Jennie!

Bridget said...

I love these. I want one. Are you making any with your fabric rather than yarn? Just asking.

Jennie said...

You all are so supportive- thank you!

Bridget- I hadn't thought of that, but I don't think so. The stitches on these are pretty small to keep the exact shape, and I'm not sure I'd enjoy trying to crochet such thin strips of fabric. I do appreciate the idea, though!

Those little stocking stuffer tape measures are just so adorable! What a great idea....and, just in time for all those holiday shoppers needing just the perfect little stocking stuffers! You never fail to amaze with your "one right after the other" marvelous creations!

Oh gosh, your stuff just keeps getting cuter and cuter. I think there must be some kind of crochet angel that sits on your shoulder and whispers ideas into your ears!

Well, I kinda believe in what "they" say--I come in a very small package myself! Hee hee.
