Want to see what I've been working on lately? Alllrrriiiggghhhtt.
Here are a few hats. Vincent wanted a puppy hat first. Then he wanted matching penguin hats for him and his best friend Paige. I haven't made Paige's hat yet, but it should be pretty cute because I get to "girl" it up!
I had a little model!
Honestly, for the penguin hat, which I started yesterday and finished today, I didn't use a pattern. I just found something I liked and made things up as I went along. I think it turned out pretty cute!
This puppy hat was the first animal hat I made. I was always nervous about making a lot of pieces and sewing them on and it really seemed like a lot of work. I couldn't find a (free) pattern that I loved, so I combined all the parts and winged it. The ears took forever, but other than that, it wasn't too bad. I like how it turned out, especially for a first hat.
And of course I think those baby blues underneath the hat make it 10 times cuter!
I think the fur is a cute touch, even though it was a huge pain! I do wish the ears were a little bigger, but Vincent was pleased, so I am too.
And... a baby blanket! I made this star blanket using a youtube video. Gotta love youtube, and people who can explain things so I can understand them (Thank you Mikeyssmail!). I wanted to make a star blanket, but my stars kept turning out lopsided. I'm just not good at understanding the written crochet patterns. But the video seriously made it SO easy! I have this in mind for a little baby a friend is expecting, but I'm not sure if this will be "the one" just yet. We'll have to see.
"Pooky" bunny is about the size of a newborn baby, so he got to model the blanket.
Well, that's it! Happy Sunday everyone!
