I have a few of my very favorite shops on Etsy. I sent a message to them asking them if I could feature them on my blog. So, here is the first of a few of my favorites. These shops are so fun to look at I'm always finding myself going back to them. Hope you find them just as wonderful :)
This shop is Sahrit on Etsy. I've followed along since she opened it and enjoyed seeing this shop evolve and seeing her wonderful talents. She creates crochet and knit patterns. Not just any patterns though-adorable patterns that are amazing!
1. Tell us a bit about yourself.
I am 8 years old with 20 years of experience and I love creating stuff and making people happy.
2. How did you get started with your craft?
I first started knitting when I was 11, and in my "grown up" life I was actually a dance teacher, but only after a back injury when I was 27 I rediscovered it and started making amigurumi dolls and open an Etsy shop - 5 months later it is now my main career :)
3. What are your favorite materials to work with/favorite mediums?
Right now yarn and crochet are my favorite, but I also love sewing, quilting and getting to know new fabrics and other craft mediums - even beads! :)
4. What inspires you?
Kids and babies, animals, cartoon characters and fairy tale stories.
5. What is your favorite item in your shop?
Ooooh that's hard! The problem is every new doll I create becomes my new favorite lol BUT If I had to choose, I would say right now my favorite is the Merida doll and then Ariel which was also my first and still favorite :)
6. What do you enjoy doing in your off time?
Spending time with my husband, going to movies, eating out, mini-golf and video arcades hehe
