Two Brother's Blankets Crochet Accessories Review *Holiday Gift Guide*

Thanks to Michelle for the items to help with this review

As we approach the upcoming Holiday season, Mama's Baby Cupcakes has teamed up with several companies we think would be a great fit to purchase/wear/give to others in the upcoming months. Thanks to each and every sponsor showcased in our Holiday Gift Guide, and if you see the cute button above then you know its Holiday approved!

My name is Michelle and I'm a stay-at-home mom to two precious little boys! I learned to crochet when I was pregnant with my second son and absolutely love it! After some consideration I decided to open up a shop to share my creations with others. I love to create something beautiful for someone else to cherish and love! 

Last Fall I saw a lot of people with infinity scarfs and crocheted items, and I was intrigued by the over all look. I never got around to ordering anything even though I looked several times in many places, so with Fall approaching again, I contacted Michelle about working together on some fashionable pieces for Fall. 

I'm never one to wear hats because I have a decently big head, and I thought a head wrap would be a great alternative to still keeping my ears warm during the cold weather outdoors. When I saw the crochet head wrap on Michelle's Etsy page, I fell in love with the look and details of buttons to give it a little flare. I told Michelle I preferred a neutral color of grey or black, and she made me an awesome set in black yarn so it can go with any outfit I choose. 

It took me a little while to figure out the infinity scarf since I'd never owned one, and I went and looked at her pictures a couple times to make sure I was getting it to lay right and be worn correctly. At first I felt a little claustrophobic when I first starting wearing it because it was so new to me, but after a little while I was more comfortable and it didn't bother me. 

The head wrap is fun for me because I can wear my hair up or down with it and it won't affect my over all style like a hat would. While I'm not one to do a whole lot to my hair, I like having the option that I can still be comfortable with it on and not have to compromise my hair or get to my location and then re-do my hair however it was done for that day. 

Two Brothers blankets is a WAHM based shop with two little boys who crotchets a variety of items for all ages. From adult accessories like scarves, head wraps, and boot covers, to kids hats, bows, slippers, and photography props, Michelle offers variety in her Etsy shop! Everything is hand made after ordered, and turn around time is currently 2-3 weeks plus shipping. All items can be made in a variety of colors, and you can easily select your preference during ordering. She also offers combination packages like hats and scarves, scarves and boot cuffs to name a few. My infinity scarf retails for $22 and the head wrap retails for $12. I think these are great prices, and very reasonable when shopping on a budget. You can find good quality work from Michelle, a fast turn around time, and items that will last!
