Focus On... Cozy Knits For You {And A Giveaway!}

The week's featured Etsy artist is none other than the fabulous Cozy Knits For You. Everything in her shop is bright, colorful and hand knitted with love. I purchased one of her cup cozies last month and use it all.the.time. It's great because I like my tea atomically hot and it keeps my hands from burning. I still need to get around to ordering some of her cat toys for the boys.

This week you can win a set of 6 hand knit rainbow hearts.

Aren't they adorable?!


Tell us a little bit about yourself:
I'm a 30 year old stay at home mom who loves to knit. My daughter and her friends inspire me all the time. I like to make toys that inspire imagination in children and I also like to make things that serve a good function while making things prettier.

How does your craft stand out from the rest?
I like to think the quality and creativity help me to stand out. Also my use of color.

How do you promote your business?

Sum up your craft in 5 words of less:
Sorry I need 6 words ;o) unique colorful mother knitting with love!

What is your favorite Etsy shop?
BinkysFudge. Her fudge is amazing. But beware it is like crack once you take your first bite you're hooked!


Any advice to other crafters?
Do what you love! It will show in your work. Also you have to put work into getting your name out there. It doesn't happen overnight.

  32. The toy chicken and veggies would go great with the set of fruit toys I already purchased from her. My boys love it, especially the banana that comes out of the peel. We play "store" and "compost" all the time, and instead of bean bags for a toss game we use the fruit to toss into our little grocery cart.
    Great quality!!!
    Cheers,

  52. I love the cup cozy in the hot lime green. My 3 year old needs one for his water bottle because he says it's always cold, plus the only color he seems to know is green :). I love the 6 colored hearts as well, my 3 year old is learning his colors so this would be perfect.
