St. Patrick's Day ChapeauTop ‘o the mornin’ to ya!
St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner and my little boy wants to be prepared! As I was reading through Donna’s Dozen: Lucky You creative ideas for St. Patrick’s Day blog, I came across the St. Patrick’s Day Chapeau pattern and questioned how could I make this for a 4 month old baby. I skimmed through the pattern and realized it uses 2 strands of Super Saver yarn for the hat. I was feeling LUCKY ;) so I tried the pattern with only 1 strand of Super Saver yarn and wadduya know…it fits my little leprechaun!

Cro-Shayley makes the Cutie Bird Hat

Cro-Shayley makes the Cutie Bird Hat

Cutie Blue Bird HatA friend of mine is having a little girl in March and her nursery theme is owls. I found Red Heart’s Cutie Blue Bird Hat pattern and thought what a perfect gift it would be! Maybe they can use this for some “cutie” newborn pictures.

I used Super Saver Orchid for the hat, Baby Pink for the feathers, Bright Yellow for the nose and White and Delft Blue for the eyes.

See the pictures below of my progress. If you’re making a baby hat with earflaps for the first time, this pattern is a good one to use. It’s quick with easy steps….my kind of project! ;)

Reflective YarnI’m on a Red Heart Reflective Yarn kick…..I don’t know about you, but I just can’t get enough of it! Last year I made headbands for my nieces, nephew and cousins when we went on our family mountain trip (click here to read that blog) and I’m thinking about making more. The way the reflective thread woven into the yarn lights up during a flash photo just amazes me…I’m easily amused, I know. ;) Continue reading “Cro-Shayley makes a Reflective Crate”

Cro-Shayley makes Red Heart’s Dragon Hat

Red Heart's Dragon HatMy friend, Lizzie, turned 7 a few weeks ago. She had planned a dragon-themed birthday party and was in need of a super cute dragon hat. I came to her rescue and made Red Heart’s Dragon Hat just in time for her birthday party.

Lizzie wanted the hat and tail to be black, the scales to be hot pink, and the spots to be purple. Luckily, I had all 3 colors in my stash! I used Super Saver Black and Shocking Pink and Shimmer Purple (which added a little girly sparkle to the hat).

Red Heart's Puppy Dog HatGuess what Red Heart friends?!?! I’m expecting my first baby — A BOY — at the end of October and I’ve only just begun making things for him. I really need to get on the ball because he will be here in no time! EEEK!

Now that I know “it” is a “he” I’m going to start whiping things up for sure. I love to make baby hats, especially the ones that are quick and easy but look like they took you weeks to make! ;)
