I made this newborn cloche on the drive to Virginia.
The rose is one of my favorite patterns. She will look precious sporting this hat adorned with a sweet rose.
There is nothing more precious than a baby bonnet. This pattern was so simple and easy and it was another one I made during the drive to Virginia.
The circular back is started much like a hat pattern, with increases spaced evenly. It makes a the shape of the bonnet.
Headband with a large rose. The fullness of this rose caught my eye and I knew I wanted to try it.
I found the pattern for the rose here. The headband is made with single crochet stitches all around.
Sweet rose headband. I cut circles out of lace and layered them to create the fullness.
Then I added some pearls in the middle for a little glam. Every girl needs a little glam.
Pink rose headband. I took apart a silk flower and glued everything together than added it to the headband.
Small car seat blanket. She is due at the end of December and you can never have too many blankets with a little one.
This little blanket was crocheted with alternating rows of double crochet and single crochet. The edging is a shell stitch.
This afghan is by far my favorite. It is a vintage pattern that my mom had. I love its simplicity. It what makes the afghan gorgeous.
Lining up the stitches is the most important thing in a pattern like this. There were times that I had to tear apart rows because one stitch was off but in the end it was worth it.
The edging is light and airy. It gives the afghan an added measure of femininity.
Crocheted Mary Janes~these precious little shoes were fun to make. They are so simple and sweet. Working with such thin thread can be a challenge but these were a hit with everyone.
The shower was held at a place that neither my mom or I had ever seen until the day of. It was difficult to prepare for decorations and set. Thankfully everything turned out well. I wish the space was brighter and less masculine but you have to work with what you have.
These fabulous cupcakes were made by a friend. They were pretty and yummy.
These booties are so precious. I did not finish them in time for the shower but they were done shortly after.
I followed the pattern at Repeat Crafter Me. She has some amazing patterns and fun things.
My mom crocheted a filet crochet bedspread out of white cotton thread in a Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs pattern. I am waiting for my sister to email that picture so I can share it here. It is truly a work of art.
