Simple Baby Hat {from an old shirt}

So, Fall is here, whether I like it or not. The speed of time makes me a little bit sad about that my baby will be a big girl one day. I know, I know, it is still far away, but you know motherhood made me so sentimental. On the other hand, I truly enjoy watching my baby girl's developement and I also enjoy clothing her. However, it is also a bit frustrating how to properly dress her - you know, not overdress or underdress. So I stocked in with autumn baby essentials, like longsleeved babysuits and warmer leggings and of course with hats. A hat is a must have for a baby in every time and it is easy and quick to sew, crochet or knit one.
This time I grabbed my sewing machine and made two lightweighted caps for the early Fall days. I used up two tops, I didn't want to throw away. The beige tank top was laying down in my closet from years, I wore it maybe twice, the birdie sleevless shirt was never worn, it just wasn't my size. Both  were made of really soft jersey fabric, ideal for baby head.
I am in love with those fast motion videos all over the internet and I wanted to make my one. So I recorded the process how I made the beanie. Enjoy the video!

I made the brim enogh wide, so the beanie can be worn fold up or fold down. /Fold up is more practical, because a slouchy hat might slip over her eyes just in one minute.
If you would like to sew a beanie, you can find several patterns on the internet, but it is easy to make your own or just use a hat as the template.
And here is my little Palma modelling her new hats on Instagram! I can't decide which one I adore more:

I hope you liked my first video! The filming was fun and easier than I expected, so maybe this wasn't the last one.


Wishing you happy crafting!

Simple beret crochet pattern

Do you know my Little Red Riding Hood Beret? I am releasing the new version of the original pattern. It is simplified, but a little bit tighter than the sample one was. The first sample of this hat has been made with 3.5 mm hook and DK weight yarn, the number of stitches were divisible by 16. This version is simplier. I used 4.00 mm (G hook) and worsted weight yarn for a fitted looking, the number of stitches is divisible by 12. 

Here is the newly made simplier version of this beret. This time in creamy peach color:

Difficulty level: easy – for beginners too (ch, dc, basic decreasing and increasing technics) Finished measurements: fits to an average women’s head
Materials:
•worsted weight yarn (approx. one smaller ball)
•crochet hook G/ 4.00 mm
•stitch marker (if you feel more comfortable with it)
•tapestry needle (to weave the ends)


Abbreviations: ch  chain dc double crochet dc2tog  decreasing two stitches with double crochet sl st 

Crochet purse for the Summer

Yippie, I have made my very first summer purse! Okay, actually it is not a new project,  a couple weeks ago you could already see some WIP pictures of it, but on the past weeks I was obsessed with sewing. That's why I deferred publication.
So time to show you one of my favourite crochet object. It is finally something for myself!! After several baby hats and simple amirgurumis for my family, I made a bag for myself... just for fun... You probably know what does it mean: when your family and friends discover 'your talent',  you don't have time to create just for yourself.



You could have already seen these squares and here where I promised, that I would make a bag from it!  So I kept my promise. It wasn't easy to turn the granny into a bag (or bag-like) shape. After several tryings with flowers and different shapes I found the simple chain loops the easiest way to turn the square into a bag.
It is not a big purse, I am sure that I won't take it for shopping, but…

Crochet Frog Applique {pattern}

A few months ago my cousin sent me a picture from a pair of baby shoes with frog applique, that she wanted for Lili. I made a quick google search for a pattern, but didn't find any. So I tried to figure out how to crochet the applique. I must confess, that the shoes are still not ready, because the first try turned out too small for Lili's feet. And now as she is learning to walk, she needs for professional shoes. So I will use these frogs later for another project. If you have any tip what should I make with them, share with me!

Materials:  - a few yards of DK weight yarn (or any weight by your choice) in green, white and red
Tools & notions: - G / 4.00 mm hook - safety eyes
- needles
