Let’s hear it for the Boys

Baby Boys that is! I am seriously “Hooked” on making these Baby Diaper Cover outfits!  With Baseball in “Full Swing” it’s perfect timing for those New Born babies!  I’ve already added them to my Etsy shop which you can click on the link on the right hand side!

I just LOVE the back of these outfits and what a great Photo Prop these would make!  If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask! I will be listing the “Ready to Ship” ones that I have available this week sometime!  Thanks for stopping by and as always……

Happy Craftin’

Bunny Diaper Cover and Tutu Set

Bunny Hat Diaper Cover Front Hi Crafters!  I know Easter has come and gone BUT I just had to share this cute little Outfit I made for a special little lady!

This is my 1st time making a Diaper Cover set and a Tutu! I am SUPER happy with how this came out!
I will for sure share the photos with that cute “Little Lady” in this outfit!  It fit her perfectly!

Below is the photo showing you the back of the outfit!  I honestly don’t know why I waited so long to make this Diaper Cover Outfit it was extremely easy to make and as I show you more in the next few days they are also extremely ADDICTING too!

This  pattern was shared freely from RepeatCrafterMe website!  Her patterns are super easy to follow and she’s got TONS of them!  As always, thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog and if you have any questions please feel frBunny Diaper Coveree to leave a comment!

March already???

Boy where does the time go?  I tell you finally things are slowing down for me! My son had something going on just about everyday of the week except for Fridays!  Between school basketball and recreational basketball AND Baseball???  Yikes…..Calgon take me away!

So I wanted to share a few items I’ve been working on! Hey it’s not Crochet this time!  I’m not much of a sewer BUT I’ve made a few easy Baby Quilts – Well I pulled out my machine again and dusted it off!  After I saw some super cute curtains my cousin made.  Here are the items I made…..SUPER FUN!

Sugar Skulls Market Tote
A Farmers Market or Grocery Tote bag! I am SUPER in LOVE with these bags! This is my 3rd bag I’ve made! Love the fabric. My daughter already marked it as hers!

Found the YouTube Video on this and just new I had to make it! PLUS  there are so many other EASY items to make!  For a beginner like me – that’s important! LOL!

 

 

 

Cosmetic Bag Skulls

But one of my very 1st projects was this REALLY Easy Cosmetic Bag from So Sew Easy – the name says it all!

This is actually my 2nd Cosmetic Bag I made! I’m really liking how they turn out! Another YouTube video. You can find the pattern HERE and the video too!

Well I’ve got more items that are in the making both crochet & sewing related that I’ll share a little later! I’m sure these will be popping up in my Etsy store very soon since I kinda bought some more Yummy Fabric!  Questions? Please don’t hesitate to ask!

Happy 2016 Crafters!

Hello all and Happy 2016 – I have to say the last month of December was a blur for me!  I literally was bombarded with Mermaid Tail Orders ALL month LONG! OH and a craft fair at the beginning of the month too!  BUT I was able to get ALL my orders done!
Here are the 1st two that sold! These are Child Sizes in Lavender Blue & Ocean Tide!

Lavendar Ocean Tide 1
I’ll share more a little later along with a Doll version I created using the same pattern. Which is from MJ’s Off the Hook Designs. It’s an AWESOME pattern which can be found on Ravelry.com. Also quick and FAST to make up.  Which is always nice! Well need to get my Xmas decorations put away so I’ll have the rest of the day to play!  Thanks for stopping by and come back a little later as I’ll be sharing more goodies and the Best Christmas Gift I got!

Happy Craftin’,

What’s been on my Hook

Hey all! So it’s been crazy busy over here. I’ve been getting ready for a Craft Fair I’ll be in very soon and time is just ticking away!  Plus I’m really looking forward to seeing my Daughter and Son-In-Law in a few weeks!!  Looking forward to that!

MermaidOn to what I’ve been working on –

SO I’ve been seeing all these GORGEOUS Mermaid Blankets in a variety of colors and finally I broke down and made one!

 

 

Mermaid 1
I absolutely LOVE how this came out!  So as you see mine is Black & Grey well I’m representing “Ursula” which most know is from the “Little Mermaid”.

I had a lot of this yarn and well that’s the first thing that popped into my head!  So right away I thought I’ve got to do the Evil Mermaid! LOL!

Extremely happy with how it turned out! Below in the next picture is the back of it.  So you see how to get into it! Talk about warm & cozy???

 

Mermaid 2What do you think?  I know I’m for sure going be making more!  In colors of course!  With the Holiday’s just around the  corner these would make GREAT gifts!  If you are interested I will take orders.   I’ll be adding to my Etsy Shop very soon!

If you are a crocheter looking for this pattern you can find it HERE!  It’s a great pattern and super easy to work up! Questions? Please comment here!
