Dr. Who Is Back Again

While I was visiting my lovely friend in New Castle I was inspired to get my geek on. Who says knitting can't be a little nerdy?! I've got some cute Dr. Who Tardis' for you today!
You can get them here: Snag Free Dr. Who Stitch Markers

There are also some super cute piglets new to the shop also!
 These little pigs come in classic pink and blue speckle or hand painted pink!
Also, two weeks ago I introduced another style of cup corset for those of you that like a standard coffee mug! You can find them here: Pumpkin Cup Corset and Damask Cup Corset 
I've currently only made the two but if you would like it in any of my other fabric patterns just let me know!
Keep your eyes open for our incoming holiday cup corsets also. They are super festive!

Cards Are Where It's At

New item Monday is here, and we've got a super cute set of stitch markers for you today! 
Oh man! These are super cute! I similar stitch markers in my own work and find these to be the perfect size. They work with lace weight all the way to worsted and beyond without leaving gaps in your knitting. They are easy to grab and move smoothly too! 

Also, holidays are here! We have lots of cute fall items that are great for halloween and thanksgiving too. And keep your eyes peeled for our new holiday/winter cup corsets coming soon.  

These guys are awesome for hot drinks but you could even slip these around your daily drinking glasses! Great for catching pesky condensation (I hate drippy glassware in the summer). These are also great for cup identification when everyone has the same glass!

And don't forget our great little hand made cards! These may take a little longer than our other products to ship, but they are definitely worth the wait!

Stop by and see us! Everything in our shop is made with love and care.

Snag Free Birthday Gift!

Hello blog land! My birthday was last Wednesday, so my DH took me to San Diego for a week! It gave me some time to recharge and unplug, but I'm back now and we've got new items rolling into the shop! 

Check out these cute snag free lady bug stitch markers!
And let's not forget this awesome Dr. Who cup corset!
Adriana is still recovering from the flood so new items in our little shop will be a bit slower through the rest of the year. She is back in the house due to a great government grant program, but the house is still striped to the studs. We are still looking for any and all assistance to get them back on their feet!
The money being raised for the scrapbooking studio is also being used to replace the space as well (walls, floors, cabinets, furniture, etc)

It's New Item Monday

What's this madness?! Yet another little bits for you to possibly put in your basket? Check it out!
 Super easy to add to your knitting! Won't leave garish spaces between your stitches, and adds a decorative bob to you work in progress (WIP). We just love the little star point flower embossing in these clay beads!
You can find some of Maria's items for sale at Rainy Day Yarns in Gig Harbor! Sherry is amazing, and the shop has about everything a knitter could want. We feel very fortunate to have some tactile visibility. 

As promised we will continue to roll out items as the weeks go on. If you have some bits in mind that you don't see on our site or at Rainy Day Yarns please let us know. We love custom orders!

Cover Your Bits Mania

It has been two weeks since Bits N Bobs Boutique was affected by the Louisiana flood. Since then I've been upping my crafting game. We have some really great new Cover Your Bits coffee cup corsets. Here's a few highlights in our shop!

Come see for yourselves! Bits N Bobs Boutique
And please keep in mind Andie is still sorting through the flood damage. She is salvaging what she can but any assistance we can get to help replace her scrap studio would be appreciated (it doesn't have to be monetary but here's the link for the disaster relief fundraiser).

Disaster Is Upon Us!

Hello lovelies! Our very own Andie Templeton has lost everything to flooding in southern Louisiana. We won't know the exact flood levels until possibly Tuesday, but we are currently guessing water levels are at least 4 ft and the Comite River will not be cresting until some time on Monday morning.

I have put together a go fund me account to help my sister rebuild their life. Scrapbooking is something that centers her, and brings her peace. I want to help her find that in all of this chaos. Losing an entire art studio and every supply is a very devastating blow. Any penny you can spare would be appreciated more than you can imagine.

At this time we are not removing Andie's scrapping items from our shop. Some of these gems may have been on high ground and survived. Until we know more all of her items will be labeled with "POTENTIAL FLOOD LOSS".

We appreciate all of the patience, and ask that you hang in with us while she picks her life back up and puts it back together.

Hot Bits


Our new Cover Your Bits have been FLYING out of the store!!! 

These items are HOT!!!

Maria can hardly keep up. 
 The damask is so classique and elegant!!! on the back!!!

 Not quite your style? Check out our more modern and fun colors and prints!
 The arrows, the coffee cups....I LOVE THIS PRINT!!!!

 and the bit of teal on the front side....

 BAM!!! Totally echoed on the back. LOVE this. Really....I do.


Remember our Lil' Bits Kick Spindle?

This has been our biggest seller!!! Thank you to everyone who has bought and left feedback.  Everyone has been so gracious.

Due to request for increased cop capacity, Maria has decided to only make a 16" spindle. This sucker is small enough to travel, completely collapsible, won't cost you an arm and a leg to learn to spin, weighs in at 2lbs, and will easily hold 2ozs of spun fiber!! 

Each one is designed and hand crafted by our very own spinner, Maria. Therefore, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns about your Lil' Bits, just contact us at anytime. Customer satisfaction is our TOP priority!! 

Grab our bits before they're gone. 

And remember, got a bit you would personally like to see? Place a custom order at our ETSY SHOP.

Until next week,

Bits With A Twist

Hello Bits N Bob's followers! 

Today I have to share a bit of a sad bit. Our lovely Maria has injured her wrist. 


"What does this mean for Bits N Bobs" you ask? 

It means that she had to switch things up a bit and come up with this adorable little cup cozie!!!!

Sadly she has had to put the breaks on crochet while she heals, but that does not mean she's down for the count! Just check out more of these super cute creations!

And the twist?

They are reversible!!!!

Well I, for one, would definitely say this is lemonade from lemons wouldn't you?! 

Please stop by our SHOP and scope out our new cozies!

Until next week....

The Sweet Life


If the answer was YES! then we have the perfect item for you.

This mixed media canvas is chocked full of modeling paste, misting, stamping, and a giant paper pieced cupcake!!

Lots of bling and sequins adorn this adorable little canvas. The paper pieced cupcake has multiple layers with a corrugated bottom. Just check out all this dimension....

Isn't the 7Dots Studios Thoughts Keeper paper AMAZING?! It makes the perfect frosting layer! This is one of my most favorite paper lines and I had an absolute blast working with it.

The border is trimmed out with tissue paper tape. So many images and fantastic graphics. And of course every cupcake needs a cherry on top right? Doesn't the yellow butterfly just pop?!

I thoroughly enjoyed making this! So bright and really brightened my day. If you would like this little piece to brighten your day, pop on over to our Etsy shop and grab it before someone else does. 

Here is the truly wonderful thing about sisters sharing art....Maria was actually inspired by one of MY pieces! Isn't that awesome?! Here's a quick sneak peek of something she's got coming to the store inspired by my work....
 Aren't you just dying to see more?! 
One last bit.
We also would like to introduce the new and improved Hug-a-Mug. We've added a new bit for you. To prevent slipping, the inside now has adorable glittery little designs! Of course they are functional but Maria had to make them cute for you too.

Wow was there a lot to share! Remember to favorite our shop on Etsy so you get all of our new items as they are released!
