Yarn Scraps - My Etsy Shop (Hook Happy)

My grandma taught me to crochet when I was in the fourth grade. Over the years, I've made some afghans, scarves, doilies, and such. Last year I thought it would be fun to start making hats for my kids. I made a couple and posted them, and some of my friends encouraged me to start selling my creations. So my Etsy shop, Hook Happy, was born.I started out making girl hats with flowers on them. Then I started making some boy hats. Later I played around with my patterns and started making ear flap hats for both girls and boys. I love coming up with fun color combinations and styles. I make up all of my own hat patterns and designs. They are all 100% original, unique, handmade creations by me, and me alone.A lot of time and love goes into each and every hat I make. A friend on Facebook posted this the other day, and I thought it was very fitting for those of us putting ourselves out there with our little boutiques.

When you buy from boutiques and small businesses, instead of helping a CEO buy a third vacation home, you are helping a mom put food on the table, a student pay for her college textbooks, a little girl finally gets to take that ballet class they couldn't afford. Support our boutiques!

I am gradually adding new items to my Etsy shop as I make them, and I've brought back a few of the most popular sellers from last year. I hope you will check out my shop and share it with your friends too! I also have a Facebook page that you can like to keep up with all of the latest additions. Thanks for your support! You have no idea how much it means to me!
