I use the best materials I can find for reasonable prices. Even though I LOVE some of the super expensive yarns, I stay away. I bargain-hunt, and those savings get passed directly to you.
I use all kinds of yarn (acrylic, wool, cotton, all-natural, blends...), but I stay away from super savers that are (usually) not very soft or friendly. This means it costs a little bit more, but the finished product is a million times nicer. The only things I will agree to make out of cheap-o yarn are some toys. If you would like anything made from a specific kind of yarn (or if you want your item to be completely all-natural or eco friendly), just let me know and I can always work with that. I also try to mainly use yarns that are easy care (machine wash and dry, anti-pilling, anti-stretching) because... Well, come on! You want your item from Little h to be something you can actually use. Once in a while I do make things that don't meet all the qualities of easy care, but you can always let me know if that's ok or not.
As for the extras- buttons, zippers, snaps... I try to buy in bulk to save both of us money. This means that I will try to find something I already have to include in your item. If I don't have something that fits perfectly, though, I will buy something new. The finished product is my priority.
As always, every item from Little h is completely custom. If you have thoughts on anything from style to colors to materials, just let me know and I will incorporate it into your item.
- Little h
- -------CHECK US OUT AT FACEBOOK.COM/LITTLEHCROCHET ------- My darling daughter, Little h, has inspired many projects. I design and make custom crochet and paper products for babies and children. I also do some for adults, you just have to ask. Because all of my items are custom made, I have no stock inventory. When you request an item from Little h, it is made lovingly with you in mind. Each item is a work of its own, and while there may be others like it, nothing will ever be exactly the same. Check out my Just Photos page. To request an item, simply email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask about it or see my Order Form page. You can be as specific or as vague as you like. Don't be afraid to request something you don't see on my blog; I love to try out new things and I can most likely make whatever you want. If I can't, I can point you in the direction of someone who can. I also share my projects with other crafters- I publish some of my original patterns here (check out my Patterns page) as well as on ravelry.com. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. Check out my pages for additional info.
