Keep On Hookin’

I actually had a fairly quiet weekend (a rare thing at my house) and got a couple of projects done.

First thing I did was a pair of slippers for a craft group I belong to on Facebook. Each month we get a partner and “swap” a handmade item with them. It’s lots of fun because everyone has different talents and crafts that we do. These are the slippers I made for my September swap partner. She said she likes pinks, purples and black and also butterflies and lady bugs. I hope she likes what I came up with :).

Then I made some ruffle scarves. I haven’t made them before now because I thought everyone was doing it. But a couple of people have asked if I knew how so I gave it a try. They are kind of cute. I might have to make some more for this weekend.

This weekend I have 2 different vendor events to prepare for. One on Saturday and one on Sunday. As usual I am freaking myself out trying to get everything ready even though I know all will be fine. Still have a few items to price and label and need to find a couple of my display props yet, but I have a few days to get those things ready. I might even have time to get just a couple of more items made (like those ruffle scarves) before then. I just need to keep on hookin’

Beach Ball Baby Hat

I did it! I got the pattern for my Baby Beach Ball Hat done and available for purchase.

I was looking for a cute and lightweight hat for little ones in the summer, but didn’t find too much out there. All of the absolutely adorable baby hats (and there are a LOT of them) are for photo props or winter time. This hat is light and airy and at the same time, protects baby’s head from the sun when you are at the pool, the beach, or the park.

I hope you like this hat as much as I do. I have the pattern listed in my Etsy shop and you can find it here Baby Beach Ball Hat . I have also listed a few finished hats for those of you who don’t crochet. I am always willing to take custom orders as well in case you see something you like, but it’s not the right color or size etc.

Happy Crocheting!!!

Cotton Caps to Battle Cancer


As I mentioned in my last post, I make cotton hats for my Etsy shop and $3 from the sale of each one goes to the American Cancer Society. I am always looking for fun new patterns to keep a variety in stock and actually my stash is getting low so I definately need to make more. These are two caps I just made this week and will be listing them in my shop today or tomorrow.

The green one is made with I Love This Cotton in Sage and the blue one is made with Bernat’s Cottontots in Seakiss. The colors look awesome with this particular pattern. The pattern itself is the best part! It’s a FREE pattern I found on Red Heart’s website. It can be found here.   Vintage Cloche

Cotton caps are great for anyone to wear and cute too, but if you know someone battling cancer they make an awesome gift for sensitive skin. And nothing says it came from the heart like hand made.
