Shop of the Week: Crochet Bouquet

(http:/crochetbouquet.etsy.com/)

Crochet Bouquet is a lovely Etsy shop which specializes in crocheted flowers. Kathryn, the shop owner, learned to crochet when she was in 8th grade, and she’s never looked back. Kathryn began focusing on crocheted flowers a few years ago when a relative was living in a nursing home. Her handmade flowers brought smiles to residents and staff, and the concept of Crochet Bouquet was born. Kathryn made her first Etsy sale on April 4, 2008; soon she will be celebrating her one-year anniverary!

All the flowers in the Crochet Bouquet shop are designed and handmade by Kathryn herself. Crocheted flowers last forever, won't irritate allergies like flowers would, and don't need watering. They are perfect as appliqu├ęs to add to a bag or clothing, or as arrangements for the home. Kathryn makes crocheted flower magnets, flower arrangements, even flower coasters. Her crocheted flower pictures may be made into an Etsy shop banner. Kathryn also sells patterns for crocheted flowers. There is a Crochet Bouquet blog so you can catch up on Kathryn's new projects.

Kathryn loves to create new things and will happily work with a customer to create a special custom order. The average turn-around time depends on what the customer wants, Kathryn's yarn supply, and how many other orders she is working on. Kathryn offers international shipping. Her flowers have gone all over the world, including Canada, Hawaii, Australia, France, and England.


Kathryn loves to hear from customers and see what they made using flowers from her shop. Another Etsy shop owner, Uppity Woman Designs (http://uppitywomandesigns.etsy.com/), uses Crochet Bouquet flowers to accent her sock animals.
What does Kathryn want you to know about her handmade flowers?


"Colorado sunshine inspires these special blooms.

I hope they bring a smile to you and your loved ones too."
