Handmade & Adorable: Yarnaholics {Giveaway} – Frugal Novice

Handmade & Adorable: Yarnaholics {Giveaway}

Who doesn’t love handmade items? They’re unique, they’re carefully crafted, and you end up with exactly what you’re looking for. Of course, you might be like me – I love the look of handmade, but I don’t have the skills or time to knit or crochet something amazing.

Thankfully, there are those talented people out there! A few of them teamed up to create the fabulous Etsy shop Yarnaholics, where you can find all sorts of amazing and oh-s0-adorable items. I put together a little collage of some of my favorites, and these are just a few of the pieces they offer:

They’ve got items for women too, not just babies – but of course, I’ve got baby stuff on the brain right now! We got a chance to review one of their items, and we decided we loved the bluebird hat:

Isn’t it cute how the little strings hanging down are the bird’s feet? Of course, just seeing it on my kitchen table doesn’t do it justice – take a look at it on one of their adorable models:

I know it’s blue and not traditionally “girly” but I think this will be sooo cute for photos! I think I’m going to order the hippo hats for the boys to have this fall/winter, too. So much more fun than a boring cap, don’t you think?

Of course, I’d highly recommend purchasing items from Yarnaholics – it’s great to support artists, and their prices are incredibly reasonable (just $15.00 for the bluebird hat!) – but guess what? You also have the chance to win something! One lucky reader will win one item from the Yarnaholics Etsy shop!  This contest is open to all U.S. residents aged 18+. Entries will be accepted until the end of the day (midnight Central) Monday, July 9. By entering this giveaway you agree to the Official Rules.

Note: I received a hat from Yarnaholics to facilitate this review, and an item is being provided for the giveaway. I was not compensated monetarily for this post. All opinions are honest and are my own.
