Olivia's Hats

Here are three of the hats that I've made for my little neice Olivia. I still plan to get a few pictures of Olivia in the hats but I found my camera and uploaded pictures so I thought I would share. The baby doll model is my daughter's doll from when she is little. The doll has the same head circumfrence as little Olivia so it was easy to measure and make the hats for her.

All of the hats were super easy to crochet. The newsboy style hat I did without a pattern, using two strands of Aran Red Heart acryllic and a K hook. The pattern for the pink and brown hat can be found HERE.

I have one more hat finished but don't yet have the picture uploaded, I'll share it soon and I'll be making more of these little hats because our nephew called this evening to tell us that he and his wife are expecting a little girl this Spring!

This year's post :)

This little blog has been sorely neglected over the last year.  Infact, it's been over a year since I've updated anything here.  Over the winter months last year I didn't do much crafting because of a back injury and it seems that when I was doing something it was knitting up some easy dishcloths to have on hand for gifts.  I did do a few projects here and there but not much. 

I made this adorable sock monkey hat for my nephew Tyler and it fits him perfectly for this year. 

This afternoon I made up three newborn hats for my new grandneice who was born a week and a half ago.  I made another pink mommy and me shell beanie, like the one posted HERE and then another brown beanie from a free pattern HERE.  To the brown beanie I added a layered flower in colors of yellow, pink and maroon.  I found the flower tutorial at Attic24 in this post. I also made a cream colored newsboy style hat that I will add a fabric flower to.  Hopefully I will get some pictures of princess Olivia in her new hats over Christmas.

Ho! Ho! Ho!

Is he not thee cutest Santa you have ever seen? This is my precious nephew Tyler in the Santa hat that I made for him this last week.

I didn't have a pattern for the hat. I had a picture of how I wanted it to look in my head and went from there. I used double strands and a K hook and made an extra large pom for the end. I love the hat but love the one wearing it even more and today I get to go snuggle with him while my sister takes pictures of my kids.

Mommy and Me Shell Beanie

I am hoping to update this blog over the weekend.  We are pretty much snowed in due to a storm so I thought it would be a good time to finally get my projects from this Fall up on the blog.

My sister does photography and wanted a few little hats to use for babies.   I love to do hats because they work up so quickly and there are so many fun patterns to choose from.  I spent some time looking around the web and then purchased the pattern for this hat on Etsy.

It is the Mommy and Me Shell Beanie Hat.  I added the bow, which can be removed with a clip.  This hat worked up quickly and the pattern was very well written.  I will definitely make more of these.

Update & my super cute nephew!!

Wow, it's been a long time since I've updated anything here.  While I might have been quiet on the blogging front I have been busy crocheting and knitting.  Over the summer I mostly worked on quick knitted dishcloths.  I kept most of them for myself and used my favorite pattern found HERE.

My sister had her second child in August and asked me to make some cute hats and picture props for him.

I purchased the patterns for the bear hat and diaper cover and the pea pod at Etsy... I don't remember the shops at the moment but hopefully can find them and update with the links soon.
