Five Snowflakes Designs

unique creations for everyone

Welcome to Five Snowflakes Designs

Welcome to my Five Snowflakes Designs blog!! I hope you will enjoy following along as I create patterns, learn new stitches, and try to keep up with life in general!

 

Some of you have followed my Facebook page from the beginning and have seen the changes over the years, but some have not, so I will introduce myself and explain a bit about Five Snowflakes Designs.

 

My name is Ramona, and I have a wonderful husband named Joel, and 3 children who are growing up way too fast! We felt it was important for me to stay home with our children when they were small, so crafting and crochet has been a way for me to contribute a bit to our family finances, and a great sanity saver!

When I first opened my little shop on Etsy, it was called Cute Capes… because that is what I first started selling. When we moved our oldest daughter from her infant seat to a child car seat, I wanted something quick to put on that would be warm and cozy and cute! I sewed a little fleece cape with a warm collar that everyone seemed to like.

 

Then I also added some cute crocheted hats and headbands to my store – and changed the name to Cute Capes ‘n’ Caps.

Since then I have discovered that I love designing patterns, and all of my items are now my own design. My patterns cover a wide range of items – animal hats, basic hats, cuddle cocoons, fingerless gloves, boot cuffs, and more, and I needed a name that would work for everything I make.

                          Most pictures are from A Day in the Life Photography, the elf hat picture is from Evie Rose Photography, and Patterns can be purchased here

 

Thus, the name Five Snowflakes Designs… five for the number of our little family, snowflakes because they are beautiful and unique (and I hope my patterns are too), and designs because that’s what I love doing!
