I might be able to take custom orders for...
other crocheted items
machine embroidered stuff (I don't like really "commercial-y" designs, so I have some really beautiful ones.  And hopefully I'll be able to digitize custom designs soon!)
hand drawn designs (for embroidering, logos, whatever)
photographs (I have lots of flowers, dolphins, birds, animals, travel, etc)


Items for sale, in an order than only makes sense to me  Wink:

** I've done some updating and removed some items that have been sitting in my shop for ages.  If there's something you want that's missing, just let me know - it's probably still available!

Japanese Wristlet Clutches - Each clutch measures 9.5 inches tall by 9.5 inches wide (at the base), and the handle is approximately 6 inches high. Every bag is made with high quality fabric and interfaced with flannel for added durability.  2pts each

A.  Khaki Kabuki (design on both sides)  sold to lapoli!

B.  Patchwork Theatre (design on both sides)

Washi pendants - Authentic Japanese washi paper, sealed on wooden pendants.  Sterling silver and brass findings.

A.  Red clouds.  About 2.25 inches across - 1pt

B.  Pastel maples.  About 1.5 inches across - .5pts

C.  Royal blue clouds.  About 1.5 inches across - .5pts

Owl earrings.  Vintage white plastic owls with glass bead accents and sterling silver findings.  These are packed away at the moment, but I'd guess the length is 1.5 - 2 inches.  1pt

Green pearl earrings.  Vibrant cultured freshwater pearls with sterling silver findings.  Also packed away, but about 2 inches long.  1pt

Fabric matryoshka doll set.  Brown design printed on green fabric.  Reverse fabric is a vintage green bold floral print.  Stuffed with fiberfill.  Sizes range from about 2.5 - 5 inches.  2pts for the set

Log cabin style pillow(case) with machine-embroidered center. 
Unfilled (I'll send some matching thread - you provide the fill and sew it up) note: you won't be able to get a pillowform in there, unless you rip out part of the seam - 2pts each
Filled and finished - 3pts each
A.  White origami crane on bright green with fan border - 12.5 inches square  sold to irid3sc3nt
B.  Brown bird on branch outline on olive khaki with pink flower border - about 11x9.5 inches

Stenciled sparrow t-shirt, white on kelly green.  Shirt is Old Navy, size XL, marked "tiny fit", with a very wide neckline, and never worn.  2pts

Stencil skull and crossbones, white on bright olive green.  Shirt is from Gap, size L, thin and stretchy.  The 4 little marks you might see around the design are from clothespins, and will go away when I wash the shirt.  I used a cheap stencil, so the paint bled a little under it.  So it's not perfect, but I think it actually fits the design.  Anyway, it's only 1pt!

Puppy/kitty toys.  Just simple little toys made of knotted fleece scraps, but my dog loves 'em!  Probably best for smallish dogs.  3 for 1pt  (sold one set to lapoli, more available)

Fabric cuffs (just under 2 inches wide) - 1/2 pt each 
C.  Bunnies on red, reverses  to veggie print on pale yellow (7.25 inches)  Sold to DropDeadSuzie!
D.  Vintage-ish kids on pink, reverses to pink floral (7 inches) 

Double wrap fabric cuffs (1 inch wide) - 1/2 pt each
These kind of criss-cross around your wrist. You need a size a bit longer than double the measurement of your wrist.
** I have some others from my etsy stock that aren't listed - let me know if you're looking for something in particular.
D.  Pink and orange retro print on brown/orange and pink floral (14.5 inches)

Stuffed origami crane in a lovely purple plum blossom print (say that 3 times fast).  Fits in the palm of your hand.  This particular one is sold, but I have some in other fabrics - let me know if you're interested!  1pt

FOUR Crocheted dolphin bookmarks/ornaments.  You pick the colors!  1pt  (I have some other ocean animals not pictured - pm for more info) 

Mini Taggie Blankie.  I have a ton of these - too many to photograph.  Let me know what you're looking for and I'll probably have something similar!  1pt

Funny faces clutch/wristlet.  Perfect size for small wallet, keys, phone, etc.  Zipper doesn't match up perfectly, but you barely notice it and it works just fine.  1pt

all pictures are clickable thumbnails!

none right now Smiley


If i added up all the hours that went into this.. it would probably be pretty sad! haha.. I used wool yarn that i had dyed myself ( you might remember it from previous rounds.. it was the human heart color!) and crocheted a granny square style purse. I then felted it, let it dry for days and then finished it up with a pink gingham lining w/ matching ties and purple rickrack trim. I think it turned out pretty cute! Measures about 10x10. (2 points!)


Super cute pink spaghetti strap tank top with my heart-lock & crossbones design printed on the hip in red. The tank is a size medium, bust measures 32-36" and is 25" long. (1 point!)

Super soft (feels like a worn in vintage, buttery soft shirt!) black shirt with my rad DROP DEAD SKELETON design printed on the front chest in green. The shirts run a little small so check the measurements below.
Large:  Bust - 33-37" and is 23" long
Extra Large: Bust - 36-40" and is 24" long.

Yellow handbeaded necklace with a neat pattern of different beads and a big yellow glass charm in the middle. Measures 22" long. (1 point!)

Black handbeaded necklace with a black pirate skull charm. Measures  18" long (1 point!)

Handbeaded light green themed scotty dog necklace! Measures 22" long. (1 point)

Cute lil' Bunny friend. Made out of cotton fabric, with a green bottom portion and matching ears! Green button eyes and matching stitched mouth. Measures approx 7 x 6 not including the ears or arms. (1 point!)

Pretty pink apple print pajama pants! I lovve the print of the flannel with all the different colored apples. They have a stretchy waist and pretty pink bow. The waist measures 31-35" comfortably with a 14" rise and 22" inseam. (1 point!)

1/2 point item sale!

Earrings! The first pair are off white owls with brown beads, the second are pearly white owls with yellow beads, and the third are spiders! (1/2 point each)

Black ballchain necklace with black metal heart & crossbones charm. (1/2 point!)

Silver chain necklace with a rad heart shaped charm with spiderwebs and skulls and roses! (1/2 point)

Headbands! I came up with what i think is a different and better version of the usual fabric headband. It involves ribbon ties instead of elastic which i think is more versatile and adjustable. The ribbon ties loop through the loop on the opposite end and then tie in a bow. They are reversible so you can choose which side you want to show! You can choose from Skeletons&Zebra, Black Hearts&Red, Cherries&Red or Strawberries&Black. (1/2  point each)

Cute ami style pig! Crocheted out of light peach yarn. Measures 8" long not including the tail! (1/2 point)

Yummy treats keychain ring. Polymer clay charms on a colored keyring loop. Choose either cupcake on pink, ice cream cone on pink, or cupcake on purple. (1/2 point! each)


Cute cotton fabric panel style fabric that is used for the top of a baby quilt. Add batting and a back and you are done! It measures 44" x 35" and is just a 1/2 point!

2 peices of cotton fabric. One is a panel style peice with 6 squares (there are only two different designs and i showed both!) and one is a matching navy blue to make a game blanket! They come as a set for 1 point! The cowboy panel fabric measures 33" long and the solid blue fabric measures 26" long.

A cotton panel style peice of fabric for the San Francisco 49ers. It measures 34" long and has a total of 6 square images with two different designs. (1/2 point!)

vintage 4-H "Make your own tote bag" fabric. It measures a little shy of 3 yards but it is 3 complete panels so it will make 3 bags! Its heavy canvas fabric so due to shipping plus the cost of the fabric its 2 points!

Soft & Stretchy white cotton knit fabric with wavy pink stripes and polka dotted hearts with flowers. It measures  21" long and 62" wide so its more than enough to make a cute little girls shirt for summertime! (1/2 point!)

Super soft and thick natural colored yarn! I scored a TON of this yarn - more than i could possibly ever use. You could dye it or i think it would be great to crochet/knit some grocery style bags. Either way - 3 skeins for ONE POINT is a great deal! Multiple sets of 3 available! (1 point!)

There's probably something deeply wrong about using superglue in bed, but I don't care 'cause I'm a rebel.

~ Msviolaceous' Den of Iniquity ~

I am located in the United States, and I have a really fluffy dog, and a cat who likes to jump on whatever I'm working on.

~ I am open to custom orders! PM me! ~

Handdyed Spinning Fiber!
I take custom orders! Available fibers:
Domestic Wool
Merino Wool
Faux Cashmere (nylon)
Faux Angora (nylon)
Firestar (sparkly nylon!)
Two points for two ounces.

Shocking Pink. 100% soysilk, two ounces. A vibrant "unnatural strawberry" color with lavender streaks. I feel like this picture is slightly washed out, but the fiber will lighten a bit as it is drafted and spun, so if you like this color you should definitely claim it! The fiber will be shipped still compressed from dyeing, but with fluffing and drafting it will puff up again. Two points.

"The Little Calorimetry That Could." This is a handspun Calorimetry made out of 100% wool yarn. It was a chunky yarn, so the gauge is bigger, with a funky chunky texture. The buttons you see are bigger than a quarter! It fastens with two buttons (a modification that I believe pixiefarts came up with, see here The picture shows your choice of buttons, but the purple and blue ones are kind of washed out by the flash (strangely, the colors in the calorimetry are pretty true). The buttons are all some kind of vintage, and I know the brass one on the left is decidedly old. I'll send whichever buttons you choose loose and you can stitch them in place to custom-fit your head, or I can sew them on for you if you're completely hopeless with a needle and thread. It's called "The Little Calorimetry That Could" because it gave me so much trouble. I carded the wool by hand to spin it! The staple is a bit short, so be aware that there's some risk of pilling. Three points.

Hand-Dyed Yarn! Dyed by me with food coloring and possibly some kool-aid.
None right now, but PM me for custom orders. 100-gram skeins of Patons Classic Merino dyed to order. 2 points per skein.

Handspun Yarn! Have an idea or a project in mind? PM me for custom commissions, with all of the same fiber options available as for custom-dyed roving (above), but possibly more if I can find it in my stash. Three points for a ~50g/2oz skein.

Blackberry Coulis. 100% silk mini-skein, 30 yds., approximately DK weight? It was a real pain in the rear, but I think it's gorgeous now. Two points.

Georgia Peach Gone Twisted. 2oz, 7 yds of supercoil art yarn. Made from lapoli's "Georgia Peach Gone Batty" batt with wool and a bit of sparkle. What to do with such a ridiculously impractical yarn? You could use it to accent a felted piece such as Booze Bag (though if I were to knit it, I'd snip the holes afterwards rather than knitting eyelets in, since there is so much variation between coil yarns). You could also wear it as-is, to make Wooldancer's Collier. Or you could just add it to your stash to look pretty, because it will! Three points.

Vanderbilt. A mini skein from a mini batt created by wooldancer. I don't know exactly what's in it, but it's a vegan batt. It is 15 yards, DK to sport weight (although reference the quarter for scale and take your own guess). It's a pretty dense, drapey yarn. It would make a fabulous contrast stripe in something! .5 point.

Oddments Button Bobby Pins. I was going to make these mismatched bobby pins and have them claimed individually, but in the end I liked the pairs I was able to put together. Choose from royal purple, earth tones or zebra. These are vintage buttons glued securely onto the standard heavy bobby pin finding. They are thicker and stronger than the standard hide-in-your-hair type of bobby pin. One-half point per pair.

Magic Hat Pins. The funkiest treasures from my bead stash on super-long stick pins - 8 inches long by default. However, I can make them as short as you like. The 8-inch pins will have a nailhead at the end, but if I shorten them I will make an eyelet stopper. See Tomato Teal as an example. .25 point each. Newly reduced!

From left to right: Stargate, Blue Swoopy, Starky, Tomato Teal, Icing, Verdant, Sceptre, Fade, and Bloopy. PM me for better pics of any of them.

Ladybug Anklet. Sterling-plated chain, wire wrapping, and lobster clasp, with glass beads. Adjustable from 9 to 11 inches. Custom sizing (and conversion into a bracelet) available upon request. One point.

Jean Blue Button Bracelets in two sizes. Though they are each adjustable, one is sized and proportioned for a 5-6 inch wrist (modeled on my 5-inch wrist), and the other for a 7-8 inch wrist (modeled on my mineral water). The bracelets feature vintage buttons attached to a silver-plated chain with silver-plated wire wrapping and a silver springring clasp. The buttons may look black in some of the pictures, but the only colors involved are denim blue, cobalt blue, navy blue, and white. .25 point. Newly reduced!



1960's mail-order sewing patterns. Great condition, probably never used. The names are just some I assigned randomly based on how the model looked, so I could tell them apart. .5 point each.

"Headless Hannah" - 38-30-40

"Claudette" - 40-31-42

Vintage Knitting Pattern Books. I inherited a litle old lady's stash, and these gently loved pattern books were among them. I won't be sad if nobody claims them, because when I went to photograph the contents I kinda got wistful! Choose from baby book or basics book. The baby book dates from the early 90's, and the basics book dates from the early 80's. I captured all of the contents of the baby book in this slideshow but only got a sampling of the basics book. Baby also has a couple of crochet patterns. The basics book is neat because for each sweater pattern (various styles for men, women and children) it has directions and gauge in three different kinds of yarn (maybe fingering, sport and DK?). If you have a stash yarn you're trying to match up with a pattern, this will make it much more likely that you'll find a good gauge match. There are some accessories thrown in there, too. One point per book.

Elann.com Den-M-Nit Yarn. 100% unmercerized cotton, worsted weight, 20st/4in. with size 6 needles. This cotton yarn is made to behave like cotton jeans. It will shrink lengthwise if you dry it in the dryer, and the color will wear away on the surface like faded jeans. It's a design feature, not a flaw! Read this page for more information on the yarn.  Although this photo is a little dark, the yarn is the same deep indigo used in the model on the elann page. One point for a skein and a half.

Gourmet Ribbons. These short lengths of ribbon are from the amazing desinger ribbon store Mokuba. If you ever get a chance to go in one of those stores, do it... it's like a crafter mecca. I was going to sew these into headbands, but it still hasn't happened and I don't know when my sewing machine is realistically going to come out of storage. Choose from brown chenille, swiss miss, marshmallow rope, and faux tatting. The brown chenille is shorter than the others at 19.5", while the rest are approximately 21". Also, this picture muted some of the gorgeous subtlety of tone-on-tone color in faux tatting. It's really my favorite of the bunch, and I held back a similar one in green for myself. Smiley .5 point each.

Araucania Quellon Yarn. A brilliantly soft viscose rayon and cotton chenille yarn. 161 yards per big 100 gram skein. Colorway #2, with varigated peach tones. The second photo is pretty true to color, but I left the first photo up so you can see the subtle varigations in the yarn. I have two extra skeins, but note that they have already been wound into balls. Also, this yarn has no dye lots. The two skeins I have should be pretty close to each other, but alternate balls to minimize striping if you want to use both on one project (no need to break the yarn, just carry it at the edge.) I made the ruffled collar from No Sheep For You from one skein with plenty left over. One skein would be enough for an ascot, two for a scarf. Two points per skein.

Thanks for visiting!

COMING SOMEDAY: Copper Cascade earring line, more handspun yarn, more handdyed yarn, designer ribbon headbands, and wine charms.

Wishlist: Tiny realistic polymer clay avocado charms, stenciled shirts, Pretty Puff Slouchy Hat (crocheted pattern found on Craftster), other interesting crocheted stuff.
