Crocheted Baby Mermaid Cocoon

Hey Crafters!  Well first I hope you all had a great and safe 4th of July celebration for those who celebrated!  We spent it with Family & Friends and GREAT Food!  I’ll have to share of course my Spinach Dip recipe but also that cake that was there! It was Yummy!

Mermaid Cocoon 1Well on to my finally finished project – Yes as the title of this post said Baby Mermaid Cocoon which I had been dying to make!  I have to say I’m very pleased with how this turned out too!

I found a great video on YouTube which I’ll post the link below for those who maybe interested in making one! Don’t be intimidated it’s really easy once you get the hang of it. I had to change it up just a bit as I wanted my scales to lay just a little differently!

There are 3 videos 1 for the Body, 1 for the Bikini Top and the last for the Starfish headband! Click HERE for the Body part then you’ll see the rest.

 

Mermaid Cocoon 2Materials I used for this project were all Red Heart Yarn – Colors in Turqua, Pumpkin and a little bit of Aran.

I just LOVE the Starfish Headband & The Shell Bikini top!  This would make a great baby shower gift and a super CUTE Photo Prop of your “Little Mermaid”.

These will be in my Etsy shop soon as soon as I take just a little bit better pics! Just had to share before I call it a night!

Well that’s it for now.  I’ll be back tomorrow with the Yummy Spinach Dip Recipe! As always thanks for stopping by and…….

Happy Craftin,

Crocheted Baby Football Cocoon

Football Cocoon 2Hi Crafters!

Well I am done with my latest project! I was done a few days ago BUT needed to take pictures!  I have been wanting to make one of these Baby Cocoons for some time now. I am very pleased with the way it’s turned out!

The materials used for this project are Red Heart Super Saver in White & Coffee and the hook I used for this project is Clover Brand Amour Crochet Hook 1049/J.  I normally use Boye hooks but lately I’ve been wanting to try out different types and styles.  You can see the image and link below.  I have to say it took me a little bit to adjust to it but once I got comfortable with it I loved how smooth it was. The handle has an easy grip too! I was able to crochet a lot longer which is always a PLUS!

Well now what will be on my HOOK next???? You’ll have to wait and see – it’s been something I’ve been wanting to make for some time now but just had to finish the “WIP’s” I already had laying around!  Ok, I have one more BUT it’s a knitting project! Does that count??  Oh well – thanks for stopping & as always…..

Happy Craftin’,

Baby Ella the Elephant Crocheted Lovey

Baby Ella Yellow 2Good Morning All!  Before my day  gets away from me I just had to share the new color scheme for Baby Ella the Elephant.  This is one of most popular crocheted loveys that I sell the most of in my Etsy shop.  I usually make the Pink, Grey and White color scheme.  Well I changed it up and did her in Yellow, Grey and White for a baby shower gift!

I just love how these 3 colors together don’t you?  I’ll be back a little later with some new things that I’ve been working on.  Just need to take photos of them.

Have a great  day and as always thank you for stopping by!

Whole lot of Monkey Business

HelloGroup Monkeys all!  Well I wanted to re-share this post from last month which was on the old blogging platform I was using.

I had an order for 4 of my Baby Loveys that I sell in my Etsy Shop.  The most popular one is the Crocheted Baby Ella the Elephant Lovey, next is this Monkey.  Well I absolutely LOVED how these babies came out and totally missed them when I had to ship them out!  I just love how the faces came out!

Gotta Love the Banana in the hand too!  I was asked if I had a pattern and gave out most of the links but I made the facial features myself and will post later tonight or early tomorrow.

I’ll post all the links for everything.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Craftin’,
