The Birth of Bola Krafts

This Post is dedicated to my ZuriDee, my gorgeous godson.

I have always crocheted and knitted so when my best friend Qyus (o to the rest of the world she's known as Nosa) got pregnant, I knew that I wanted to make a blanket for one of her shower gifts but I had never made a blanket prior and neither did I have the patience to read patterns and follow through so this to me was going to be a challenge to finish. I set to finding my pattern and decided to start making the blanket early enough so it would be ready by the shower, it took me a whileeeeeeeee and when I was done I was like I'm not giving it anymore, it was not good enough, I want to make a brand new blanket. TemT (my husband) said for me to give it to her, that it was nice and I spent time making it, so I went ahead and I'm glad I did. The shower day was very emotional and I was so happy that Qyus and BigDee were happy about the blanket too. Zuri has since then been a BolaKrafts ambassador.

 From that point on I caught the bug, I ended up making him a second blanket, made it faster - a week or so ( unfortunately,this was during hurricane sandy and fortunately, I had all the time then) and I haven't stopped since then - in the past I usually had spurts where I would crochet and knit for maybe a month, never finish a project and not do it again for the another 2 years but this time its different, especially since I believe I have found my niche with making items for kids, Im enjoying it so much and I'm being encouraged to by a lot of friends that I don't have a choice but to keep the train moving along :)

Enjoy some pics of my lovely baby boy in Bola Krafts items~

Wrapped up in Love

His second blanket ~ I love, love Chevron stitch, sorry lighting does the blanket no justice

In His Mickey Hat, look at those eyes and lips, so cute!

He is gorgeous like I said right, thats all folks! 


So it's been a long time coming (well if you would consider 2 months long haha, my friends do) and I just felt that the time is NOW :)  for me to start my blog!

Hi, my name is Bolanle and this is my space to share with you my work - so funny saying that because at the beginning of this year , crocheting and knitting wasn't on my goals list as an opportunity but God has a way of doing His thing and Bola Krafts was born, yay!

Bola Krafts as my description says makes crochet and knit items with so much love but right now I only make for little ones meaning children ranging from newborn - child, I'm sorry grown folks but their stuff is just so much cuter and much fun for me to make, plus a child's look is priceless when I see them in their items, sighhhhh

anyways not to talk to much but follow me on my Krafting and (maybe just maybe a little bit into my life ) journey!
