Gadget Cozy Give Away

AND THE WINNERS ARE:

1) #94 - MISHIA
2) #74 - RACHEL G
3) #80 - JESSICA

CONGRATULATIONS!!


I was thrilled when Tyler contacted me about having a feature/give away on my blog. In fact - I have been eying different shops looking for a coffee mug cozy, and she happens to carry them! So I ordered one - in red :) Can't wait to get it!! Before we get to the give away part - here's a bit more about Tyler and her shop:


*Where are you from? Tell us a bit about yourself.
I am from Maryland, but I now live in and attend college in Alabama. I've loved learning different types of arts and crafts since I was a little kid, and I've gone through several different phases like plastic canvas, gimp braiding, latch hooking, crochet, sewing, and upcycling. Knitting is my current obsession, and I'm sure I'll stick with it until I'm old and gray!

*How did you decide on your shop name? Why did you start your business?
My shop name is pretty simple. My name is Tyler and my items are handmade. I started my business because knitting is one of my favorite things to do, and selling my items will hopefully start being a big help in purchase my (very expensive) textbooks.

*What types of items do you have? Do you have something new you will be adding?
Right now I have scarves, armbands, dishcloth, gadget cozies, mug cozies, and rugs. I will be adding some hats, shawls and headbands to my inventory shortly.

*What’s your supply addiction?
Well I'm a knitter, so my addiction is yarn of course! I have yarn all over the place: under my bed, in my closet, in a plastic storage bin, even in my sister's dresser drawer!
I started a group on Ravelry.com called "Random Acts of Kindness" where we send each other gifts for no particular reason, and a lot of my yarn came to me free from kind knitters and crocheters from the group.

Is there a specific color or type of supply you just can’t pass up?
I love Patons SWS! It just feels great to knit with and I love the colorways.

*Do you have a blog?
Yes! I just start one on the 7th and really need some followers (hint hint). Here’s the link: http://tylerhandmade.blogspot.com

*What motivates or inspires you to create?
Looking at different pieces in fashion magazines and taking note of interesting things that people wear usually gives me great ideas for designs.

*Which item in your shop did you enjoy making the most and why?
I’d have to say the item that I enjoyed making the most was my Wildberry Scarf, because there was no pattern to it. I just had several yarns in coordinating colors picked out, and I’d switch yarns randomly to give it a unique look. The constant shift in colors really made things interesting. I think the reason I choose the same scarf to be my logo is that I had so much fun making it.

NOW FOR THE GIVE AWAY!
Tyler will be sending 3 winners their choice of Gadget Cozy!
