Baptismal Gown

Standard

Image

My sister honored me with asking me to be my neice’s godmother…. so of course I just HAD to make the baptismal gown.  I searched and searched for THE pattern, but I couldn’t find anything that I truly, truly loved.  I then decided to make my own gown, complete with pearl beading, satin ribbon roses and glass-beaded belt/sash.

This dress really is the definition of a labour of love.ImageImage

Crochet Cotton Slippers, Made with Love

Standard

Image

I have a confession to make.  I dislike footwear.  If I could I would walk around barefoot all day, just to enjoy the freedom of feeling the cool floors on my skin.  That’s one of the reasons I love summer, when I can get away with walking outdoors in the grass with nothing between the soles of my feet and that fresh green grass….

But winter is not a very friendly season when it comes to being barefoot.  So what’s my solution?

Cotton.  I love the comfort of cotton.  So I decided to make us some cotton slippers.  I figured that the benefits are two-fold.  One, the cotton is more comfortable than acrylic.  Two, it will be less slippery than the acrylic too.  However— cotton does stretch more than acrylic, and so to ensure them staying put, I made the trim using acrylic yarn.

I have included the pattern below and you’ll need some basic knowledge of crochet to complete the slippers ( PDF link below).

You are free to make the slippers for your own personal use.  Please do not sell the slippers or the pattern.  If you wish to share the pattern, please provide a link back to this page or to my etsy store.

Crochet Scarf: Chunky Twists & Cables

Standard

When I saw this rich, green yarn at the store (RedHeart Soft: Dark Leaf), I knew it was destined to be mine.  I bought enough to make my littlest one a sweater:

And then I had to have something pour moi!

I loooove this scarf!  The lovely twists and cables worked up quite nicely, and although it make look complicated, it’s really a series of treble (triple) crochet stitches.

You’ll need some basic knowledge of crochet to complete the scarf using the pattern PDF (link below).

Little Birdie + Crochet Purse = Love

Standard

So I’ve always loved little birdies.

So much so that my very talented12-yr-old gifted me a sketch for Christmas:ImageWell, once I saw that little cutie, I began thinking of a way to incorporate a sweet little bird into a cute little design, and this is what I came up with:

Adorable, n’est pas?

(The bird pattern is my own, but the heart pattern was found online.)

I’ve included the PDF of the entire purse below.  I hope you enjoy it.  I was able to put this together using up some of my yarn stash.  You’ll notice that I lined the purse with some felt, but I think that any material you have around will do, or you may just want to crochet with a tighter stitch.
