Upcycled Chunky Layered Scarves for Fall

The weather is starting to turn to cool afternoons, the leaves are changing to vibrant hues of red, orange, and yellow, and the fire is keeping us warm and cozy inside.  We love the Fall season here in Northeast Ohio!  And our creative minds are thinking warm, vibrant colors for Fall with lots of texture and pattern found in chunky, layered scarves made from upcycled, fabric yarn and recycled fabric yarn from t-shirts. 

Why we love these scarves?  We love that these scarves are very versatile and can be worn long layered over shirts and blouses and Fall jackets or wrap them up around the neck for those cool Autumn afternoons.  The fabric is so cozy...we love the variety of pattern intermixed with solid colors.  Some we've handknotted to add interest and texture.  These scarves are similar to infinity scarves meaning there is no beginning or's a continuous scarf.  We love that they cannot be pulled off the neck and they stay put!  We also love that our scarves can be worn long into the winter season and into early Spring.  We are sure you will Fall in love with them too... : ) 

We have several listings in our Etsy store here Love Designs Boutique and if you are in the Cleveland area...head on down to Little Italy and visit an adorable little boutique found on Murray Hill near Case Western called ::SunnySideUp::Breakfast Nook/Boutique where you will find our Handmade Jewelry and Scarves along with some delicious food and beverages.

We hope you are enjoying this Fall Season...check out our scarves on Etsy and let us know what you think?  They make a great gift for the upcoming Holiday Season!!!

~*~Adorable Girl Accessories~*~

It's been a while since I last posted and I want to update everyone on "What's New" here at Love Designs.  Some of you know that my sister, Hannah, had a little baby girl about eight months ago which has sent her into a whirlwind of creating all things GIRL!!!  Just recently we opened a new online store on Etsy called Emma Rae Designs where we are listing adorable, Vintage Style and Retro headbands for little girls.  My sister creates everything in the headband herself and takes careful attention to every detail and makes sure that each piece is cute and affordable.  Emma Rae is the star of all the photos, so check out our new store and let us know what you think???

What's next???  Who knows...God continues to inspire and drive us creatively so we will keep you updated : )

Handmade Crochet Jewelry, Scarves and Flower Kufi Hats

Welcome to everyone who finds their way to this blog!  We hope that you all had a wonderful Holiday Season and that the New Year has been good to you so far : )  Old man winter has stopped in for a visit here in Northeast Ohio and today we are being hit by a very cold and windy winter storm.  So far this is the second winter storm this season and I cannot complain!  We live in the heart of the snowbelt and last year we hit a record high for snowfall.  This year we have been experiencing unseasonably warm temps and enjoying every minute of it!  This weather definitely makes you want to stay indoors with a warm blanket by the fire with a nice warm cup of hot cocoa.  It's also a great day to crochet : )

My sister and I learned how to crochet this year after realizing that we were not happy with the quality and availability of some of the items we were purchasing to make our Flower Kufi Hats (which were a HUGE hit last year!).  We want to ensure that the pieces we design and create are quality pieces that will last.  So, we decided we needed to create our own.  Learning how to crochet was challenging and very time consuming at first.  After we learned the basic stitches and created our first Hand Crochet Scarves, we were hooked!  We went on to Hand Crochet Fingerless Gloves, Hand Crochet Cuff Bracelets, and Hand Crochet Flower Hats.  Learning how to Crochet has sparked a new creative vibe with my sister and I.  We hope to expand our inventory over the next few weeks along with new pieces of Handmade Jewelry.

Here are some pics of our recent designs.  As soon as the weather cooperates and I can get out to take some photos, I will be listing our newest creations.  Please let us know what you think of our newest venture and leave a comment below.
