I love fold over elastic. Love it. I ordered a few colors several months ago (Etsy is the place to look for loads of sellers with great color combos.)

Baby Boy Aviator Hat Crochet Pattern

aviator hat baby boy title
I posted a cute little pink pig hat a few weeks ago. Obviously, it was for baby girls. Since I have two boys, I like to do boy projects more often than girl projects. And I make newborn hats to donate for the local hospital and can’t only make girl hats.

I could not find a free pattern for an aviator hat, so I decided to draft my own.  Keep in mind, I’m still new to crocheting and I’m especially new to drafting patterns. So if you have feedback, I’d love to hear it (please be kind, thanks!)

Even More Crocheted Hats.

Until the past week or so, it was still cold here. So I was still crocheting.

Crafts for Kids: Felt Masks

We saw a picture of kids wearing felt masks as part of a party theme spread in a magazine. That made my almost-four-year-old little guy want to make a mask. Usually he’s not so excited about crafts. So I figured I’d better jump on this opportunity to craft with him. felt mask (2)

Child’s Bathrobe Tutorial

bathrobe tutorial title
I started these bathrobes for my boys in October. (Talk about procrastination!!)

I did make my oldest his robe in October. And cut out the second robe for the little guy (who had just started walking…it’d be pretty tough to crawl while wearing a bathrobe).  But the little guy’s robe sat. And sat. Then I moved the pieces to the closet. Where they waited.

Little Pink Pig Hat: Free Crochet Pattern

I’ve been doing a  lot of crocheting lately. (See here, here, here and here.) But I’ve never developed my own pattern. Until now. I saw this hat and just had to develop a pattern to make a similar one. I figured I would try to write a crochet pattern to share with any of you who also crochet.
