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.
