About Jess

 

My name is Jessica King-Cason owner of, “Jess Handmade Designs.” I’m a Philly Fiber Artist. I’ve been married to my wonderful husband since March 6 2008 and we are parents of one Baby Angel (Jadon Lewis King-Cason 1.19.11 – 1.31.11) and a another son name Elijah who his the highlight of our Day. I started crocheting as a hobby in October of 2009 I taught myself how to crochet all by researching online! My Little sister in law and Mother-in-law tried to teach me how to knit and crochet. Back then they were faster crocheters and they couldn’t teach me. However, I do know how to knit thanks to them. Also my other sister-in-law taught me how to do a basic granny square (thanks Fam) . So from there I started my mini projects far as making hats, scarves, baby booties, and small blankets. Then, I started to make hat sets for family and friends and the next thing I know, I have a little business. This site Has been launched since March of 2011!

“My inspiration comes from God, my Husband, our Sons our Family and Friends and my wonderful customers. It was because of them I turn my Hobby into a Business. I’m also a part of a YouTube group call “Fresh Off tha Hook they inspire me to create and try new things when it comes to crocheting projects.” They are like Family to me.”

Feel free to look around my site if you have any questions feel free to contact me.

 

With Love always,

Jess

    Jess!

    Thanks to your tutorial I made my first slouchy beanie. It came out great. I too taught myself how to crochet and knit via online videos..I started November 2011 and I cannot stop…it’s so relaxing. In time I hope to get better and better.

    I wanted to tell you that your items are all very beautiful !! and…I wanted to know what type of crochet hooks do you use…I like the one with the “comfort grip” on it….I’ve tried finding those but I’ve been unsuccessful. Any help?

    Again, your items are great and you are very inspiring!

    “peace and blessings”

      Hey Takeya 🙂 Thanks so much for watching and liking my love for crochet 🙂 I use clover soft touch crochet hooks or Boye… if you want some thing with a nice grip purchase some pencil grips and put it on your crochet hooks 🙂

    Thanks for your YouTube videos. I also like that you have the written pattern available. Some crocheters like me have learned with a pattern and the videos are helpful but I still need a written guide. Again, thanks for your videos and keep sharing!

    Hi Jess and others,
    I have been crocheting for over 60 years so thought I would say that it is refreshing to see young people taking up this very special and individual craft. As my older relatives and my mom said this is special and individual because no matter what pattern is used no two items ever come out the same. You will be able to see this if you make an item and then put the pattern away for a year or more. If you then do that pattern again you will find it does not look quite the same. Tension, color choices, type of thread or yarn and even our mood can affect the way a project comes out. One of the big changes for me came about when the Bedspread weight thread I used changed. Originally this thread was a size 8 and it is now considered a size 10. So if you decide to make any of the antique patterns available out there that give a size in Bedspread weight thread you now understand that the item you are making will be smaller than what was originally intended. Also if you have any questions about crochet that I might be able to help you with feel free to ask.
