Gifts for baby Lili

My cousin's daughter Lili was born on last week. She is an Easter baby! I have made a gift basket for her: there is a Mini Monkey baby sling, an all natural bunny and two crocheted hats on it.

One of the beanies is a baby version of Juci's hat. Well, it is merely big for Lili now, but babies are growing fast, I think it will fits a few month later. So I don't hesitate, I give it to her.
This orange hat really made me a big traffic! It was pinned and repinned on Pinterest in a few hundred times and featured several times on the bloggy world. This really gives me a big encouragement. Thank you!

For the baby version I increased one row less (I skipped the 6th row from the original pattern).  
Width: 14' 
Height: 5.7' 
Remember, this stitch is not so stretchy, so make a little bit bigger than normally.
Material I used:1 skein Red Heart Baby. It is so soft and has nice colors.

I will post the pattern for the green beanie on monday. Check back to get the pattern.

 Wish you a happy weekend!

  4. These are just so heart-breakingly sweet. I have 0 yarn/string skills or else I would TOTALLY make these for a upcoming shower. You are so talented! I would love for you to link up to my debut of Sweet Sharing Mondays (new weekly party)!

  6. These are absolutely cutest gifts you could make for a baby girl!
    I love baby girls with those large flowers sitting on their heads :)

  7. Adorable hats - love the colors! Baby and toddler hats are one of my favorite things to make - my own baby had one of every color of the rainbow this past winter. And that is great news about Pinterest and blog traffic - gives me hope.

  14. Both the hats are so cute!! So is the little bunny. I am off to check out your hat pattern. Thanks for sharing with us at Link It Up Thursday.

  15. Your idea is great for gifting and in my opinion choosing gift for babies is a very difficult task because they always want something special from you and if its not of their choice then it will become difficult to handle them.

  16. These are so cute! I love little crocheted hats for babies.

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
•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
