velvet acorn

Hello, my name is Heidi May and I have a true love for nature… of my favorite things is to sit with my cup of coffee in the morning and stare out at the mountains and trees, whether they are filled with snow, falling leaves, or billowed out with spring foliage, I can’t think of anywhere else I would rather be.

Inspired everyday by my children, and really the simple things in life. I have always had a love for knitting and crocheting, there is just something about wrapping up in a wonderfully handmade item…truly filled with love in every stitch. When my first daughter was born I was always looking for items that were feminine, practical with a natural earthy flare. This is where my business started….The Velvet Acorn.

I have three wonderful children. Time goes by so fast and I am very thankful, I cherish every moment we share together and seeing the world through their eyes.  I really enjoy cooking, reading and just curling up in front of the fire with a basket full of yarn.  I can only hope to share with you my love for nature and all the simple things in life one design at a time.

    I made Flint Fox cowls for my grand niece and nephew last year. They were really cute and easy to make. The kids love them and call them their llama costumes.
