Getting My Crochet on......

I' m trying out some new hats this year.
My first one is a Minion that Jace helped me design.
Pretty cute on Jace!

Next I made some super cute Candy Corn Hats for dolls and for kiddo's.
I found this pattern on Simply Sweets Crochet on Ravelry.
I'm planning on making a costume to go with the hats.


I love this little Cupcake hat!  It fits a preemie or an American Girl sized Doll.
The pattern I used is from Repeat Crafter Me's blog.
She has the most amazing crochet patterns and they are all free!!!
God Bless Sarah for sharing her amazing talents with us!

The Minion and the Knights Mesh hats I designed on my own after looking at photo's that other talented people posted.

Jace with his Knight's Mesh hat on.
I'm planning on making a costume to go with this hat too.

I'm having so much fun making these hats!
I've already started making some different ones and I can't wait to start designig
costumes to go with the hats!!

My Crochet Projects Over the Last Couple of Weeks

First I have to thank Mallory for modeling for me.
Mallory would like for me to buy a mannequin so she can quit modeling for me.
Life is so hard when you have a mom that crochets and sews!

 I made this beach or shopping bag out of a cotton crochet thread.
 Don't I look attractive in a beard?? 
 I made this owl pillow out of some acrylic yarn.
