With the colder days fast approaching I thought it would be good to make a hat for my little five months old baby. So I went ahead, did some yarn shopping (the sweetest thing everrr) and supplied my shelves with some really luscious and soft yarn, Red Heart Soft to be precise. Then I happily proceeded to making the hat and in the process of crocheting it I realized it would be sweet if I could create a whole set of hats, from newborn to 3 years old. That could come in really handy. So I did it and love this new collection. I will definitely use it to make hats for my little Mr.P as he gets bigger and I might even use it later when/if another little one arrives.
Of course, I have put together a pattern to share with you, perhaps you’ll find it handy too.
The pattern contains instructions for 5 hat sizes: newborn, 0-3 months old, 3-6 months old, 6-12 months old and 12-36 months old.
The hats have cute little ears, because, well, they are just so cute. The ears are not sewn to the hat but I used a little trick instead to attach them to the hat as they are being crocheted.
The pattern, as usual, includes a written part followed by a very detailed step-by-step tutorial (with 38 pictures).
You can find the pattern HERE and HERE.
Crocheted cubes are here! Crocheted cubes are here!
I love, love, love these.
As I wrote in my last post, the idea to make these was born as I was online shopping for toys the other day. I saw a cute cube and thought – hey, what if I could crochet that? And I happily did. My little boy already loves his cubes and enjoys rolling them around. It’s a sweet sweet toy.
If you’d like to make this project too, you are surely welcome to…
I have prepared a pattern and step-by-step picture tutorial for you. There are more than 50 pictures to be found, all details explained and pictured.
If you are interested in getting the pattern or would like to learn more details about this project, you can find it HERE or HERE.
Happy crocheting, friends!
With lots of love,
Recently, while doing some online toy shopping for my little son, I stumbled upon a cute multi colored cube. I loved it. As I was just about to add it into my cart an idea popped up in my mind – what if I could make something similar with my yarn and hook? That could be fun. And I could finally make a first toy for my baby, the thing I was planning to do for quite some time.
I got really excited and started gathering my yarn immediately.
Right now I am posting this from cube heaven. I made many, frogged even more, and have come up with two designs so far. I carry the third one in my head – it should be a really happy one that I can’t wait to work on.
Cubes are so much fun!
I have now gotten into a state where I think I want to make so many of these soft toy cubes that my little Mr. P will be able to build a fort with them (not yet, since he is only 5 months old, but one has to get prepared). And then I really want to make a big one that he can even sit on.
Cubes are really so much fun!
I will share more details about these projects soon. And of course, there will be patterns for you to enjoy.
Thanks for reading!
With lots of love,
Hi dear friends!
I am happy to present my newest project to you today – the Happy Colorful Mosaic Coasters.
I’ve been carrying the idea of some super colorful mosaic coasters in my mind for quite some time and luckily, these slow summer days have given me just enough time to translate the idea into real life. Eeek!
I am in love with the bright and happy vibes they send out.
And as far as their use goes, I think that besides being cute coasters, they can be used as some lovely wall decor (boho style horizontal garland or attached to a vertical chain) or neat appliques too (imagine them on a handbag, that could be cute, right?).
Would you like to try crocheting one or two as well?
There’s nothing easier – you can follow the pattern I have put together for you. As usual, the material is full of step-by-step images and all the necessary info to guide you through the process. You can find the pattern HERE or HERE.
With lots of love,
