✂️ Christy's Crafties ✂️

About the size of a small purse.

Pokemon water bottles (Meowth, Pikachu, Bulbasaur, & Flareon) -- 1 point each
Brand new wrist strap (inside bottles) bottles from Pick Your Plum.  I cut and attached vinyl characters.  **Handwash Only* to protect the vinyl.

Envelope door hanging pocket  -- 1 point
reptilian lil pocket envies to hold phone, keys, mail, whatev.  Cotton fabric with stiff interfacing to help it keep it's shape.  They are about 7.25" wide x 11" to the top.

Snap clutch (claim as number)  -- 1 point each
They are 4" x 6.5".

Scrappy braided baskets (claim by number.  SOLD: #6) -- 1 point each, or 3 for 2 points
If you need rough dimensions or pics of certain ones, just throw me a line Smiley

Lil drawstring tote -- 1.5 points  
Kid or lunch sized tote with an expandable drawstring pouch that allows even more goodies to be stuffed in there.  First pic shows the front and back of each tote.

Passport case (map, yellow, bird, gold, or clouds) -- 1.5 point each
Each of these are made with faux leather-ish and cotton material.  The fabric on the strip is the fabric on the inside (first pic shows what insides look eat plants).
I have 2 clouds available.

 Microwave bowl holders (waves, blue/green, or black flowers)  --  2 points per set
 These bowl holders are made with 100% cotton fabric, thread, and double layer of batting.  They are perfect for protecting your hands from hot bowls![/i]

About 9" L x 5.25" W x 4.75" H.
I made one of these to carry some treats and a few fav toys when we travel with our dogs.  

I made this one using a reusable shopping bag and a random free motion quilted fabric lining.  The shopping bag "fabric" gives it a plastic-y crunchy feel and helps it hold it's shape better.

This one is a bit shorter and fatter 8" x 6.5" x 3.5".  Made with a Half Price Books cassette reusable shopping bag with a quilted cotton interior.  It does have a handle on the side (I just realized it doesn't show in the pic).

Minecraft Creeper panel  --  2 points  
I had planned to make this pieced panel into a pillowcase (explains the solid strip on the left), but my daughter wasn't really interested in Minecraft creeper decorations by the time I finished the panel, uggg.  Would be a good start to a lap blanket, too!  Approx 30" W x 23" H.

Hi!  My name is Barbara and I live in Long Island, NY.  My house contains no allergens or smokers.  We have three bearded dragons, but they never go near anything that I craft with or that is already made.

My shop is currently OPEN   Cheesy
I just reduced prices on almost everything!




*All scarves are 2 points each.*


This is a crocheted scarf in an interesting pattern, comprised of different shades of green.  It measures six inches across and measures approximately five and a half feet long.

This is a crocheted scarf, called a 'keyhole scarf' because of the way it has a space for you to pull the other end of it thru, for a nice, snug fit!  It is shades of pink, yellow, and gray.It measures five inches in width and four and 3/4 feet in length.

This is a rainbow colored scarf that measures five and 3/4 inches across and a little over six feet in length.
*rainbow scarf has been claimed*

This is a ruffle scarf, crocheted in shades of burgundy and rust red.  It measures approximately five feet in length.

*1 point.*

This earwarmer was crocheted using the same rainbow yarn as the rainbow scarf in this shop.  It measures three inches in height and nine inches across (laid flat).  It fit the Styrofoam head perfectly, so if you have a bigger head, don't worry....the earwarmer has some give. Grin
*earwarmer has been claimed*


*All SETS (2) of washcloths are .50 point, single washcloths are .10 point.*
single blue washcloth is claimed

These are crocheted wash/dish cloths that have a loop on one corner for hanging to dry or between uses.  Each one measures approximately five inches by five inches, and is crocheted using cotton yarn.  Each claim includes two of the same color wash/dishcloths-*except for the ones on the right, which I only have one each of.


*Each soapsaver is .25 point.*
purple soapsaver is claimed

These are crocheted soapsavers.  You can put a full bar of soap in one and use it to wash with, or you can save the slivers of soap that remain after you've used almost the entire bar.  They are crocheted using cotton yarn and have a loop on the top for hanging and can tie shut.  They measure approximately three and a half inches across by four and 3/4 inches in length.  Choose by color.


*Each set of seven rounds is 1 point.*

These are crocheted circles, made using cotton yarn.  They are perfect for removing makeup and/or washing your face.  One claim will include seven rounds.  Each round is approximately the same size, the largest one measuring two and a half inches across.  (If you have a preference, ask for what color you want your group of them to be.)*eight rounds are claimed*


*This wreath is .10 point.*

This is a wreath I crocheted using one of the Haagen-Dacz lids!  As you can see, it has a loop up top for hanging.  The true colors don't show up well here.  The yarn used is a grass green and a light hunter green.  You could use this as-is, or sew your favorite decorations on it!  It measures five inches across.

I am not sure of the purpose of these items, but they sure are cute!  As you can see from the photo I have several of them, in colors of blue, red, and green.  There is a hanger on the back of each of them, and a notch in the mittens.  I'm not sure what went there, but figure if you want them, you could come up with something.  They each measure four inches across at the widest point and three inches top to bottom.  Grin (Note, I'd like to disclose that when I moved them, some of the mittens came loose from the snowman.  It worked to just push it back in, but you may want to add a dab of glue if you claim these.)  .10 pt. each

These are two small embroidery sets, never opened.  .10 pt. each


All of these are crocheted by me, using acrylic yarn on the market bags and cotton yarn on the smaller purses.  Please let me know if you would like one in another color.  I cannot custom make one at this time, but I do have several already made in stock.

This purse has a strap long enough to wear crossbody.  The purse itself measures six inches in length by five inches across.  (This purse has a keyring on it so you can attach your keys and not lose them, and has a cluster of rhinestones charm on it in one corner at the top.  .5 pt.

This purse measures approximately one foot in length and nine inches across.  .5 pt.

This market bag measures approximately eight and a half inches in length and eight and a half inches in width.  .5 pt.


These are crochet top dish dryers that can loop and be buttoned shut on a oven door or cabinet handle for easy access and so it doesn't fall on the floor and get dirty.  Both are crocheted using acrylic yarn.  They both measure approximately 18 inches top to bottom (starting from top of loop).  I have several others made in other colors and different towels; please let me know if you would like to see one of them.  .5 pt. each

This is a beaded snowman necklace.  The necklace part measures nine inches in length, and the pendant part measures one and a half inches in length and 3/4 of an inch in width.  .10 pt.


*Each lid is .25 point.*

These are the lids from Haagen-Dacz ice cream.  (Yes, I ate all the pints myself!  Cheesy)  They are great for crafting with, and pretty sturdy too!  (Take a look at the wreath I'm offering in my shop, that was made with one of these lids with the paper cut out of it.)  They measure four inches across.

*Each metal lid is .10 point.*

These are metal lids.  I don't know why I just have the lids, but I do.  I thought they may be good for making magnets with or ornaments or something.  The bigger ones measure two and 3/4 inches across, and the smaller ones measure two and 1/4 inches across.

*Set of five clothes pins for .10 point.*

This is a set of five wooden clothespins.  They measure four inches in length.

*One "thingy" for .10 point.*

I'm not sure what these are called, but I have them!  Roll Eyes  The big ones measure three inches in height, and the smaller ones measure two and a half inches in height.  Choose by color.*all carabiners have been claimed*
