Latest October Creations

What a busy month!!! I just participated in my first “Fall Festival”/craft fair of the season and had such a blast doing some custom orders. I wanted to share some of the things that I have been up to:

First, and probably my favorite of the season so far is the triceratops hat that I made for one of my friends/regular customers. Let me start off by saying that if you crochet (and have been doing it for 30+ years like I recently realized that I have…boy that ages me!), you can pretty much figure out most of the patterns that you see out there. HOWEVER, I am a real believer in giving credit where credit is due and in supporting other crochet creators…sooooo, when I saw this pattern, I just had to purchase it. Micah Makes might be one of my new favorites (ranked with my old go-to’s: Royal Sisters and Holland Designs). If you are a crochet enthusiast, please go check out this pattern–and some other equally amazing ones–at www.micahmakes.com.

Now on to my picture share…

Awesome Free Tutorial Site!!

I found this wonderful link on Pinterest! Yea!!! So many adorable free patterns/tutorials. I had been trying to figure out what to do with some vintage fabric (yes, really vintage leftover fabric from one of my mom’s old dresses) that was in my stash. This little Snappy Toddler Dress used up the perfect amount and turned out so cute!!! The pattern on the site was for a baby (12-18 months), so I just used the back neckline from the pattern as the front neckline for my 5 1/2 year old and created a new back neckline to fit her. The rest was easy! What do you think???

Next on my list is that adorable Snap Wrap Dress that’s on there…and probably a few more of these tops 🙂 I’m sure I’ll have to adjust a little to accommodate for my daughter’s age/size, but that is a simple fix.

Loooove these simple tops! Thank you Prudent Baby!!!
