Holly Craft Originals

I'd like to introduce you all to Holly of Holly Craft Originals! She makes the cutest fabric appliques! I've admired her work for a while but hadn't had a chance to purchase any of her items. Back in Nov I excitedly won a giveaway for 1 applique! I received the cutest brown and pink Owl. I should have taken pictures of it because I've sadly lost it in the midst of all my ribbon and the rush of the Holiday season. I know it's buried in the storage box somewhere. So in the mean time I'll share some of her other darling works!

She got a little something for boys and girls in her shop too. She has pillowcase dresses, onesizes, hats, headbands and cards in her shop. 

Her appliques can be used in a number of ways. I use them on my crochet creations, but you can use them in cards, scrap booking, as embellishments on clothing and accessories.

Here are some words about Holly from Holly! :)

I am from West MI...been here my whole life. I love living close to Lake MI...especially during the summer! Not so much in winter...:(

I am a stay at home mom of 2 kids who loves to do crafts! I have been crafting since I was a tween! My Mom always sewed and did other crafts too. So as kids we always saw her doing crafty things, and I became interested in it. I think that is what got me into it...:) 

I started up on Etsy in 2007 selling cards and then went to hats made from a knifty knitter loom...and that just didn't really get much interest, so I just kept trying new things...bibs, more hats, etc. 
I really started doing the appliques because I had been scrapbooking and wanted some flowers to use on my pages...I looked around and found some on a scrapbooking website...but they seemed pricey and they looked like something that I could do! So I tried! Here I am now doing many different designs, mostly because of the customers and fans asking me if I could do something...from airplanes , tractors, bears, frogs...anything they think of I try! And if what I draw up meets my idea of cute :) then I put it into fabric!

My business name is HollyCraft Originals. I go by HollyCraft on Facebook...My husband helped me come up with the originals...because everything is handmade and me.

I have a small room on our porch (built on) that I use now to craft. It isn't much, but it is better than where I was working...My kitchen table! LOL...I still end up there alot, but at least the dining room isn't covered with all my fabrics, and other craft supplies!!

you can find me on Etsy and Facebook 

Please check out Holly Craft originals! I know you'll just love her work. If you ever want me to add some of her darling appliques to my hats or headbands I would love to just ask and we'll work out the details!
