A Very Green Tuesday

I hope everyone had a nice St. Patrick’s Day yesterday! My work goes all out for holidays, so I had to come up with SOMETHING. I decided to go back to my roots and break out the crochet hook for the day. I wanted to make this hat… but I didn’t have quite enough time, so I just made the necklace. …And piled on just about all the green I could find in my closet :)   Oh, and I apologize to the little bit of Irish in me if I ever used Patty instead of Paddy… my bad. :/ Did you make anything green to wear yesterday? Happy Hump Day! Until next time,

Little things for the little ones

My little cousins keep multiplying! :) And another one’s due in May. Soooo… I’ve been a little busy… Newborn hat (made using this tutorial); the main fabric is from my grandma stash; the blue flower fabric is from a tank top (SP24) And here she is – the sweet little thing: Crochet baby sandals (made using this adorable pattern) and colors quiet book (see my other post on that here)   Little lumberjack hat (made using this tutorial… used flannel instead of the fleece that she used; but I think it worked out great… and it was really simple and quick to make, which is always a plus!) (SP25) Knit summer shirt (made using this pattern and yarn leftover from a pillow I made a while back)    Comfy knit dress (made using this awesome tutorial and fabric from my grandma stash) (SP26) I hope everything fits! Every time I see them it’s like they are another year or two older (usually because they are!) :(… so I really have no idea how big they’ve gotten other …

Texas Boot Cuffs

A while back, I randomly got a text from my cousin in Texas- she sent me a picture of some boot cuffs and asked if I could make anything like that for her. Of course I get excited when people request for me to make something for them, but it also makes me a bit nervous because they usually have a picture in their head of what they are expecting. Well… here’s hoping these go over well! Made some for my little cousin too (my cousin’s daughter… my first cousin once removed… or just my cousin, because I don’t really like the sound of ‘removed’). Anyway… finished the first pair a while ago and the second pair today! This weekend has been crazy full of finishing up WIPs (works in progress)… I feel so productive! Here are patterns links: for the ones on the left and the ones on the right.
