Hi! My name is Ginger and I live in San Diego, CA with my dude. We don't have any furry children, but we do have TWINS on the way! They are both girls, and they are due very soon!
I have a very kitschy, quirky sense of style. I love jewel tones for things around the house, but my favorite colors to wear are dark purple, dark grey/charcoal, navy blue, and black. I really like deep red shades too. If you are making anything for the babies, please Please PLEASE NO PINK! I dislike pastel shades and the color yellow. I'm a sucker for terrariums, foxes, amigurumi, pandas, chococat, kitties, boston terriers (we are getting one when we move into a house at the end of the year!) and jars of whimsies. I enjoy fabrics that have tiny patterns (which almost look like the designs that you see on origami paper), especially sashiko designs! retro floral patterns are pretty neat too. I also like black and white tiny polka dots.
I would really like some stuff for the babies at this point, so I made them their own list:
-Crib sheets. Here's a pretty easy tutorial - http://www.theribbonretreat.com/blog/how-to-make-a-crib-sheet.html
-Amineko cat. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/amineko-crocheted-cat
-Magic loop teddy. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/magic-loop-teddy
-Two pairs of baby sized mary janes in black. These would be perfect! https://www.etsy.com/listing/75769202/crochet-pattern-210-baby-too-cute-mary or something similar
-Knitted or crocheted amigurumi toys. Please make sure that they don't have any beads/buttons on them (choking hazard!)
-Baby beanies, using wool is fine as long as its superwash.
-Knitted baby blankets or baby-sized quilts. Bright fun colors, vintage/retro inspired fabrics, etc.
-Baby mittens, socks, or booties. Knitted or crocheted.
-Embroidered baby onesies, any size from 3 months on so they'll get more wear out of them. I LOVE sublime stitching patterns, so any of those designs would be perfect.
-scarf bibs like these https://madebytoya.wordpress.com/2014/01/21/bandana-bib-tutorial/
-I need knitting needle cases very badly. Especially one for DPNs. I like how this case is constructed - https://www.etsy.com/listing/57170147/needle-case-needle-holder-craft-bag?ref=shop_home_active_17 I would prefer one that has a flap at the top to keep the needles in, and a button closure instead of a tie or ribbon.
-Zip up bags for craft supplies
-French Press Felted slippers, size 10. https://www.etsy.com/listing/41507335/pdf-pattern-download-french-press-felted
-Knitted socks, womens size 10
-Fluffy bunny slippers, size 10 http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/fluffy-bunny-slippers
-My dear, a deer trophy http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/my-dear---a-deer-trophy
-Mini fox scarf http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/mr-fox-stole-my-heart--mini-fox
-mug cozies like this one. https://www.etsy.com/transaction/162271470? Thanks Grab a Coffee!
-Peekaboo mitts http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/peekaboo-mitts
-Rikke hat. Preferably in a dark purple or dark gray variegated yarn. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/rikke-hat
-Embroidery pendants. I love the kind with little flowers, or maybe even a tiny fox. This one is pretty cool https://www.etsy.com/listing/174854834/poppy-field-hand-embroidery-pendant?ref=shop_home_active_1&ga_search_query=poppy
-Terrarium pendants (there are some on my pinterest)
-Handmade pottery mugs.
-Embroidery hoopla. I used to have a massive collection, but it all got destroyed in the move. Please check out my pinterest for ideas.
-Throw pillow covers, knitted or embroidered. This one is perfect https://www.etsy.com/listing/62772666/hand-embroidered-linen-pillow-cover?ref=sr_gallery_33&ga_search_query=floor+cushion&ga_page=2&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_facet=handmade in dark purple or red
-Potholders, knitted/crocheted or sewn.
-Embroidered napkins and placemats. These are perfect - http://www.pinterest.com/pin/261560690831100196/ Free pattern here - http://www.feelingstitchy.com/2011/02/wanna-stitchalong-with-us.html. I also like Scandinavian embroidery designs.
-Vintage (or vintage inspired) ephemera paper
-Yarn. I hate to sound like a brat, but I don't really use the stuff you find in big box craft stores (like michaels, joanns, etc) Madelinetosh, Malabrigo, and Noro are my current favorites. I also LOVE indie hand-dyed yarns...handspun is awesome too!
-fabric scraps, fat quarters, jelly rolls, etc. I love Tula Pink, Cotton + Steel, Amy Butler, Joel Dewberry, etc.
-Jars of whimsies
-Handmade soap. I haven't had good experiences with melt and pour soaps, but any other kind is good. Any scent is ok (even masculine stuff because my dude will happily use it) as long as it isn't heavily floral. I really love honey-scented soaps. And fruity scents like strawberry.
-Scrubs. Salt, sugar, lip scrubs, whateva.
-Lip balms, body butters.
-Homemade jams, sauces. We are vegetarian, so no gelatin please. But we love pretty much anything. Fall spices (like pumpkiny, cinnamon type stuff) are a big plus.
-I'm a huge sucker for chocolate and snacks from other countries. I'm down to try anything as long as it doesn't have gelatin or meat in it, and it isn't super spicy.
Thanks for looking! <3
