knottygnome crafts: Grand Opening

Flea Market Fancy Clutch

My new website and shop are up and running! It's been a dream of mine to one day no longer work for the man and instead make at least a partial living doing what i love. making beautiful things is a big part of my life and hopefully this is a small step towards that dream.

I still have a bunch of things to list but some of the categories i plan to stock are quilts, bags, kitchen accessories, fashion accessories, and handspun yarn. US shipping over $50 is always free.

To celebrate, i'm having a giveaway. This cute little clutch was designed by michellepatterns and uses flea market fancy and it's a hoot fabrics. it's just the right size for a night out and will hold the essentials--like a wallet, phone, keys, and lipstick. it has a detachable wrist strap for easy carrying and storage.

  1. congratulations on the site and store! i love the clean look; the products really shine, I love seeing your handmade goodies for sale (the hand quilted frames pillow is a favorite). I'd love to see some of your shawls for sale, too. (otherwise, I think I just might have to take up crochet...)

  8. Congratulations on the shop I hope it is a smashing success. This bag is darling. WRT the shop, I'm torn between the gingham quilt and the scrappy pincushions (that white, orange and blue one in particular) as my favorite pieces.

  28. Love your modern plaid baby quilt. Of course, I love everything hand quilted! Great box bags, too, especially the patchwork one. It looks like it has a lot of body to it!
    (I think you would get a lot more comments if it were easier! I bet I'm not the only one who dislikes having to sign up with a new service, but thought you should know!)
