With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, we’re all scrambling for a festive, green outfit to wear. Grab some felt and get to crafting this clover crown. It’s fun, easy, and cheap. That’s music to my ears when it comes to an art project. Pair your new accessory with the Carhartt Women’s El Paso Utility Jacket. This is such a great piece to add to your spring wardrobe. It’s covered in pockets, made of lightweight material, and has a draw cord waist. Bring on the green beer!

I love giving presents around the holidays. Giving someone you care about the perfect gift is such a great feeling. I know, I know. That sounds so corny, but it’s so true. Pictured above are a few gift ideas for the lovely ladies in your life. There are some fun winter items and a few products handmade by our super talented Crafted in Carhartt women. How cool would it be to give your best girlfriend or your sister something made by another inspiring woman, working hard and following her passion. This holiday season let’s get in the spirit of giving and girl power!
