Etsy Seller Feature & Giveaway: The Crochet Loft

We have a great feature and giveaway for you all today.  I am always a fan of crochet, It's one of those things that I've always wanted to learn but haven't because I know I don't have the patience to do it.  Renee from The Crochet Loft is a sweetheart and has a neat Etsy shop where she offers one of a kind handmade cozies, scarves, gloves and headbands, I love the detail she puts in her work.  She has graciously offered to make a custom cozy for one lucky winner and I think that is so sweet of her.  You can see below how to enter. 



A little bit about our Etsy Seller:  My name is Renee and my shop is thecrochetloft. I reside in California. I crochet water bottle cozies in the warm months and scarves, fingerless gloves and wide headbands in cooler months.



When did you start creating?:  I started to crochet when I was about 9 years old with my mom.

Why did you choose Crochet?:  I like to crochet because it relaxes me and puts me into a zen mode.




What inspires you?:  I get my inspiration from the colors out in the world whether it is from nature or just looking at items from a store.

Where do you create?:  When I create I have a quiet place in my bedroom next to the window and sitting on a rocking chair.




What is your most cherished handmade item?:  The most cherished item I have made is not in my shop. I made a sweater jacket and it took me 4 months to make. The funny thing about it is I never wore it because I did not want the jacket to get dirty.
