Let’s Talk about Crafts, Baby!

Posted on August 27, 2016

It’s been a while since I’ve been crafty. With our overseas adventure, I had to leave an entire room of scrapbooking supplies behind. While I did miss this amazing activity, I found that the rest of the world had moved on from this when I returned. With my photography keeping me busy (as well as 2 pretty active girls) I wanted to take on an activity that I can do just about anywhere. I made it my resolution at the beginning of the year to learn how to crochet. With a few lessons from my very talented (and patient) neighbor, I was able to learn pretty quickly.

I have made several projects already and am always looking to make more. If you need something, don’t hesitate to ask :)

Up first is a crochet blanket that was SUPER FUN to make. I am actually planning on making another one as soon as my daughter tells me what colors she wants.

This hat is a cowl that I learned how to make just by watching a video on ETSY. Since my attention span is pretty non-existent (for example, I have clicked away from this post about 5 times to look at other things…. Oooooh PINTEREST) so I decided to try this one out first in a small size before venturing into anything that might actually fit my kids. So if you know anyone with a 6-9 month old, send them my way! (this item is available in my ETSY shop so click on the link below to see it)

Finally, here is the slouchie beanie hat that I made using a pattern I bought (eek… yes… I BOUGHT a pattern.) Support small business owners! This one is made for a toddler and is available for sale in my Etsy shop
