Cute Cuddlies!

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!

Side view.
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!


  1. Cute! You could almost knit your own Halloween costume.

  2. You could open your own Etsy shop. The hats are cute!

  3. Love the hats! I agree about the Etsy shop. I would definitely buy hats if you were selling them :)
