Owls Owls Everywhere

Well more owls had to be made.  After giving the pink and blue owl hat to a friends daughter, her sons wanted one.  So I made each boy a hat in the colors they wanted, and I loved the results.  Here they are

I changed the eyes and love the result Here is the pattern for the eyes...

In  Yellow
Make a magic circle, 6 sc in circle.  Tighten.
Row2  Ch 1, 2 sc in each sc.  join. 
Row3 repeat Row 2
In White
Row4 Ch 2 *2 dc in sc, 1 dc in next *  Repeat *  Join.  Leave a long long tail of white to sew on hat. 

Sew a black button in center of the yellow.

Another Owl Hat

I was asked to make an owl had for Randy's friends daughter in Blue and Pink, beanie style.  Wasn't sure how I'd feel about here, but I love it.   Here it is.

I used three seperate patterns.  The winter beanie one I used for the modern flower hats, the nose from the Owl hats and the bow from my sisters craft blog...Satiscraftion

Baby shower Gifts

Pictures of some of the Baby shower gifts I made

The Cuddly caterpiller is the first stuffed animal I tried and went very smoothly.  I found the pattern Here.  I did change up the pattern for the legs a little.  Instead of using both colors on every leg.  I made each leg match the body it attaches to.  So where the body is light pink so is the leg where it attaches and then it turns to the dark pink.  And where the body is dark pink the whole leg is dark pink.

This pattern was found Here.  I made no changes to this pattern.  I loved it exactly as it was.

This pattern was found Here  The only change I made was I added the flower that was in the pattern above.

And the set together. :)  Loved them all.

I haven't forgotten...

Athough I haven't blogged I have been crafting.  I made an adorable newborn dress (first time making any type of clothing, so proud and loving it) a cuddly stuffed catepillar, and sweet newborn brim hat all for a friends baby shower.  Also made a ton more necklace scarves for friends and family.

Next on my craft list a shrug.  Pictures of all coming soon :)

Owl Hats

I have only boys in my family but have been dying to make girly hats, luckily my friend has two adorable toddlers.  So I made these for them...

I actually used two patterns for these, and combined them for my own.

I used this one.  And this one.

Sleeping Hat Progress...

Well I actually don't have 'progress' to report seeing as I finished in under 3 hours. :) Not expected. Just trying to do it, with no pattern, I'm fairly proud of my finished product. Though I don't love it and will refine before making for other people. Below is my finished hat. As soon as I refine I'll post the pattern here.

My lil Raiden, aka RC, modelling his newest hat, unwillingly.
