Featured Artist I Knit Quilt Sew

Good Morning,

It is my pleasure to introduce you to an other clever and artistic person from handmadeartists.com, I Knit Quilt Sew. This woman is not kidding about that either!  as a fellow knitter I am in awe of some her wonderful and just plain fun designs and items, lets show you a few of my favorites.




I Knit Quilt Sew

Aren't these just the cutest things!  She hand knits, quilts and sews some marvelous and whimsical, and practical items with a touch of flair and fun!  These are so neat and a fabulous take on the Baby Bootie.

Cowboy Booties Hand Knit in Red and White

Product Details:  These unisex hand knit Cowboy or Bowgirl Boot-ees are so cute!  They are hand knit from high quality acrylic yarn in bright white and really red.  These cowboy booties are easy care and can be machine washed and dried on cool settings.
The booties will fit a newborn to 3-month-old baby, measuring 3.75 inches (9.5 cm) heel to toe.  They are 4.25 inches (10.75 cm) tall.
Perhaps your school colors are red and white.  Maybe you're a Cardinals fan.  These booties are perfect!

Handmade Log Cabin Style Baby or Lap Quilt in Blues


Product Details: Again trying to capture that heirloom, vintage quality, I've constructed this log cabin baby or lap quilt in shades of blue. The quilt is machine assembled, and entirely hand-quilted. The navy blue binding is sewn on by hand then over-stitched by machine. All the fabrics used are polyester cotton blends, with polyester medium loft batting, making this quilt machine wash and dry on cool/delicate settings. It can also be dried flat or hung to dry.

Laid flat, the quilt measures 38.5 inches (97.8 cm) wide by 42 inches (106.7 cm) long. It's a wonderful size for traveling, covering a car seat, or for a play mat. This certainly would be a wonderful shower gift, too! The last of my pictures shows this quilt on my quilt frame being quilted.

This quilt does have my tag in it and meets all US Government regulations. The shipping weight on this quilt is two pounds.

Cream Fleece Handmade Teddy Bear


Product Details:  This handmade teddy bear is made from cream-colored Polar Fleece® and is so soft and cuddly!  This toy teddy stands 17 inches (43.25 cm) tall to the tip of his ears.  He has safety stay plastic eyes, a hand-embroidered nose and mouth, and a acrylic-blend knit black and white striped scarf.  This teddy bear has moving arms and legs too - he is jointed using the very old-school string-and-button method, which is all internal.
My tag is securley sewn into a seam in the back of this teddy bear, making him in full compliance with US Government regulations for toys.  Shipping weight on this bear is 2 pounds.

What the Shop Owner says:

 I truly love what I do... whether it's knitting that perfect pair of booties or hand-quilting my latest creation, it's a labor of love. Though I'm creating a commercial environment for my work, I don't want to lose that passion. For this reason, you won't find hundreds of items in my store. Each and every item will be made with care and great attention to the details.

My grandmother taught me to knit and sew before color TV was invented! Most of my knitting comes from her patterns which she claimed were her mothers - which would date them in the late 1800s! This is what gives my knitting its old-fashioned, classic style.


I am a self-taught quilter. I learned that from books years ago. But primarily, I'm an artist. My medium is fabric and yarn!


Thank you for stopping in and having a look.  We hope we have inspired you to take a look at I Knit Quilt Sew and see what warm and wonderful thing you may find for your winter needs!

The Alchemists Vessel would like to wish you a pleasant day.
