Crochet on the go

my kids are notorious about loosing their hats. We recently took a trip to the wildlife refuge outside of OKC and I couldn't find their hats anywhere so I had to crochet all the way there to make sure they were covered and here are the results! Jacob was fine with his plain but Hope said it needed to be more girly so I clipped on a bow. for DIY instructions on making bows, beanies and other cool stuff check out YOU CAN MAKE THIS in my links you will also find a similar dress pattern there from my other post and of course the hats didn't stay around long, lol

busy busy busy!

Wow I have been so busy! I have made tons of dresses in 3 days I thought I would share a few with you. Hope is such a poser! She loves to model if only I could take good pics lol. You can find patterns like these at YOU CAN MAKE THIS in my links The 2 dresses she is wearing are so sweet and I cant tell you how many people want me to sew for them now. Hopefully the new CPSIA law will be ammended before August I can hang in till then and if you dont know what I am talking about you can read more about it here
