Today T.k. Wilson and I will do a dual blog on Christine of Sweet Potato 3. Christine designs both clothing accessories and toys. I will be covering the clothing, and accessories from newborn through adults, T.k. will be covering the whimsical clothing and toys.
First I should note that Christine has an Etsy shop, a Craftsy shop and a Ravelry shop along with a Facebook page . No shortage of pages from which to buy Christine's patterns. Her facebook page is where she updates on the latest news from the drawing table. She's also very interested and active on her Facebook page. I enjoy reading her posts and updates.

I mean I put my heart and soul into finding the perfect gift as many "makers" do. (Makers: time.com/104210/maker-faire-maker-movement/ )Every once in a while, but not often, we take a knock for giving handmade. However, when you see designs like those Christine of Sweet Potato 3's you draw in a sharp breath and exclaim " I HAVE TO MAKE THAT", loud enough for the neighbors to hear :) . So you do :) Picking a few favorites out of the pages of work Sweet Potato 3's Ravelry pages was really a challenge. Mercifully T.k. will be helping to cover more. The baby patterns are too "sweet":
For kids there is a plethora of great accessories that make a great back to school gift or something for holiday gifting. Christine has 3 kids of her own so she gets a lot of practice creating cute pieces. I like her out of the box style.
There are some great accessories for the grown ups too. Christine has designed a piece for many different occasions . She also designs for charity so be sure to check out her designs for the cancer challenge. Some of my favorite patterns include:
I hope you'll read T.k. Wilson's blog for more on the extensive designs of Sweet Potato 3 at laterosedollclothes.weebly.com/ I have very much enjoyed writing about Sweet Potato 3. Her work is inspired and her cancer challenge designs are inspiring. I wish to thank Christine for her hard work and beautiful designs.
