just call me kara clause

I hope y'all liked window shopping through some of my favorite print shops on Etsy last week! Today I'm back with some more of my favorite Etsy shops to share with you. These are from crafty gals that I "know" on Instagram... holy moly, that's such a fun app! Do you use it? If so- look me up, yo! I'm me_and_elna.

I digress. :)

Anywho, here are some of the ladies from the 'gram who also have some pretty kick butt shops on Etsy. Their sewing skills AMAZE me!

Marian over at Lady Face Quilts has some of the cutest gifts for the little people in your life! Check out this Houses and Deer Zipper Pouch-

A couple of years ago I bought several zippered pouches from Etsy from my nieces and nephew and filled them with little soaps and lotions so that they could have "lady and gentleman baths". They loved it! They still have the pouches and use them for their toilitries... because every 9 year old girl and 5 year old boy needs to keep their bath products organized. ;)

Also, check out this sweet baby girl quilt from Marian-

Wouldn't this be a great gift for a friend who just had a baby? Can't you just imagine a sweet little bald-headed baby wrapped up in this? I die. :)

Maureen Cracknell has some super cute items in her Etsy shop, Maureen Cracknell Handmade. Two that particularly caught my eye were these Owl on Branches Birthday Crown and Rocket Ship and Star Crown!

 What little guy wouldn't love to be king or queen of the castle with one of those cute crowns?

Amber Carillo over at One Shabby Chick has such great gifts in her shop, I wanted to post pictures of all of them!!! I recently bought a super secret Christmas gift from her- if I told you what it was, I'd have to kill you- and received it in the mail last week. Let me tell you , the craftsmanship of the gift is just perfect! I was super pleased when I got it and I know the recepient will love it too.

Anywho, I finally settled on three items from Amber's shop to share with you. Check out this iPad cover!

I need to get an iPad so I can buy that cover. :)

This Leather Trimmed Fold Over Clutch is ridiculously cute. And those deer are perfect for the wanna-be hipster. ;)

 This next gift is just the greatest idea- it's a Family Passport Wallet! The one featured here has slots for six passports but she also has ones listed with four slots.

Isn't that just the best gift for a family who you know will be traveling in the upcoming year? I always stress out about our passports when we travel internationally and there's just two of us! This is such a great way to keep all of your family's important documents together.

 Christina's Esty shop, Sometimes Crafter, mostly has patterns to buy with the exception of this 2013 Sewing Mini Calendar!

I SERIOUSLY love this little guy. It is palm sized and each month features a sewing picture that Christina took herself.

 I think this is the perfect gift for the crafty chick/guy in your life. I bought one for myself and plan on tacking up each month in front of my laptop at the office. I often suffer from the gnawing iwishiwassewing affliction while at work and I think these guys will cheer me up on those days. :)

Well, there you have it friends- some of my favorite Etsy shops from some of the lovelies I follow on Instagram! I'll be back one final time next week to share another great grouping of Etsy shops- this time, it will be shops full of SEWING PATTERNS! If you'd like to have a handmade Christmas this year, be sure to stop back by for some super places to help you out on your mission. :)

xo, Kara
