Etsy Favourites {August '15}

At least once a week I find myself looking on Etsy either for something specific or just a general browse. I'm always amazed at how talented other people around the world are and marvel how they have made their craft a business for themselves.
My list of 'Items I Love' grows and grows, occasionally I'll add certain items to my basket but more often than not I just add to my list as a future purchase.

The majority of items I 'heart' are crochet patterns. These are definitely items I buy more than anything else. I blogged recently about some blanket patterns I've been eyeing up and plan to make soon. I thought I might start a little series on the blog monthly Etsy favourites and which ones I've be purchased. So for August, here is my round up:

First up is this gorgeous canvas bag with leather straps. I've been after something like this for such a long time, mainly for work but also if we have a day or weekend away, this bag looks perfect to carry all my essentials. I love the contrast of the tan against the khaki green and think it will look great with so many outfits. I also love that Nell Haper is based in Brighton, one of my all time favourite places to visit so this bag would remind me of Brighton everytime I wore it!

Art is something I'm always on the look out for and when I stumbled upon this Etsy shop, I was soon adding nearly every picture to my list. This elephant print is just on of my favourites but there are so many beautiful, colourful pictures that I would love to hand all around our flat.

Of course I had to include some crochet patterns and although I'm not planning to make another blanket for a while I adore this super cute vintage dinosaur blanket! I have a bit of a thing for dinosaurs and could easily see this thrown over a rocking chair in a little ones' nursery :)

Crochet Baby Romper pattern by Croby Patterns

Continuing with the crochet theme, isn't this crochet romper just adorable! I'm super tempted to get this pattern as it looks easy to make and I just love the big heart on the front along with the cute buttons. I can see a certain nephew wearing this!

What are your current Etsy favourites and which ones have you bought recently? Check back next month to see what my September favs are!
