More beautiful girls - one original design

I finished this beauty from a pattern I found at here

This crying girl kiss pattern was also found at - here

This red headed beauty was a pattern created by me from artwork found on the net. I make no claims to the ownership of this design. I only converted the image so that I could knot her up.

Below is the chart I created. Please feel free to use it. I would love to see your finished work... especially if you change up the colors etc. Enjoy

Plus Size Fashions - Affordable and sometimes... Free!

The above shirt is one that I got from I joined the site after my sister got me a dress there. At first, I wasn't even aware that you could earn and win free clothes. It was a bonus when I was offered the above shirt for free. I pin all of the clothes I want to buy from on Pinterest anyway... so why not earn clothes! I've also earned a free dress, and plan to buy from this site frequently. A few things to keep in mind about the site. Orders are coming from the Orient... so it could take a long time to get your order... but it will come. The sizes are much smaller than you would normally find. For example a 7x might only be a size 18 US. Be sure to check the measurements. Each item has measurements listed on the sale page.

I don't buy into gimmicks and promotion sites. I wasn't looking for this... it kind of found me. I am posting about it on my blog to share the love with you, and also to show off the great plus size fashions I find while shopping there.

If this offends you...

I love her. 78 strings. She is my biggest piece to date. All hand knotted using this pattern found at

Hand Knotted Pop Art Girl

I finished knotting this female pop art piece yesterday. To date, it is my largest piece completed at 56 strings. It is big enough to be a coin purse, which I am considering, but still have lots of back-work to clean up and knot etc etc. You can get or see this pattern here at
