WIP Wednesday (Work In Progress)

Right now I'm working on a carrot someone asked me to do for an Easter photography prop. This is very different from anything I've crocheted so far but I think it's looking good!

I used a modified version of this pattern. It didn't call for anything to put inside to keep it I stuffed in with plastic Walmart bags and it worked just as good as fiberfill!

Chain Necklace and Big Bow Hat

Lately Maggie has gotten more interested in jewelry and purses, so I decided instead of buying a bunch of cheap plastic necklaces and bracelets I would just crochet them! Here's a chain necklace I made last night with a big flower on it. She doesn't enjoy any of my hats so it was nice to finally make something that she was excited about! I got the idea from here

 I finished up this hat this morning. I got the idea from a picture on pinterest, but I think the bow is too big for Maggie's little pea head. Its attached to an alligator clip so we can remove it and just wear the beanie.

Horse Hat

I made this for my little niece, Lauren. I asked her what kind of hat she wanted and she said a horse! I had never seen a crocheted horse hat so I made her pick a back up in case I couldn't figure it out...but I think it turned out cute!

I have finally found a hobby that I absolutely LOVE...crocheting! At first I felt like a grandma sitting on the couch with my hook and yarn, but then I figured out I could make some really cute stuff! I have been at it for a couple of months now and I feel confident enough in my work to open up an Etsy shop. It doesn't have a lot of different items yet, but I am steadily adding things to it. 

Here are a couple of things I have in the shop so far...

Hippo Hat

 White hat with HUGE flower

 Little Monster

 Monkey Hat

 football hat


Hopefully I will be getting a new camera in the upcoming months, but until then these pictures from my phone will have to do! They would look better if I could get a picture of them on Maggie, but she will have no part in that! I guess she's not going to have a future in modeling :)

So click here and go have a look at the shop for yourself!

And for those of you that are crocheters (is that a word?) her are some sites where I got free patterns.
Monster Hat (I didn't like the actual hat pattern this is where eye and spike pattern)
This was the pattern I used for my first hat!
