Sock Savers!

So I have come up with this new product, well it’s not a new idea, but it’s a new product for me. The idea was inspired by the mens equivalent of this product which is super boring, and I thought I am going to make some of these for women who love to garden! Sock savers were originally designed for men who work outdoors to stop dirt and prickles etc going into their socks and therefore, saving their wives a lot of angst! Sock savers or gaiters as we call them, are typically a khaki colored heavy denim which is super boring. I decided to make some super cute ones. Originally I wanted a heavier denim, but I couldn’t find any with cute patterns, but I managed to find some light denim fabric in the typical blue colors with really cute white designs. I love how they turned out, what do you think?

These are worn on the outside of your boot, over your sock like the bottom picture.

Sock savers……woman’s, gardening best friend!!

Gnomes

With all the craziness of trying to earn a living, dealing with kids and grandkids, farming, my needy mother, a demanding job and trying to study I rarely get the chance to just sit and relax and do one of the things I love most…..making gnomes! I bought a heap of the cutest gnome patterns off Etsy a few weeks back and I finally got to complete one. It’s not exactly the way the pattern goes but she still turned out awesome I reckon!

My photography skills are seriously lacking but how cute does she look!

Here is the link to the pattern if you guys want to try it out too! She has so many amazing patterns!
