One of these really cute handcrafted berets looks like a toadstool, and I am guessing that is where Etsy user Tiny Toadstool got the name.

At $128 each, these berets are not cheap, but they are works of art with amazing intricate detail. The berets look like they come from a fairytale, and the sets with a hat and matching gloves really are too whimsical for words.

Implications - This terrific tote exemplifies the whimsical nature of the growing handmade movement of artisans. These creative individuals are using traditional techniques like knitting, beadwork and crocheting to make statement pieces that may not be for the mainstream, but reflect the owners' personality nevertheless.
