Crochet Newborn Hat & Booties Set

Happy New Year!

I spent my NYE 2014 barely hanging on until midnight. We let our 4 year stay up, made popcorn and watched a movie (Despicable Me) and sat in front of the fireplace. As soon as it was midnight, I got ready for bed! I guess that's how it is when you have 3 little boys age 4 and under... always waaaay too tired to stay up. Before the movie started I was determined to finish this cute project...

I made this hat & booties set for a friend who's having a little baby boy & her baby shower is next week. It's actually only my 2nd time completing baby booties. I find that I'm not a fan of making little things haha. It's the feeling I get once i'm done with one of the booties... and then it's "I have to make another matching one?" lol 

Joking aside, I would like to have more practice because I'd like to start make little Amigurumi toys... 

I really wanted to make the hat a newsboy hat but I only had one more button for the hat (I needed 2 for the strip above brim)! I searched my button stash and for some reason all the matching buttons was ONE short of 6! UGH! Well, this works too. This is actually the 2nd hat I made because I had a different button on the hat and was not happy that it didn't match the booties.... soooo I took it off. The problem was I accidently cut the yarn to the hat too and put a big gaping hole in it! Luckily newborn hats are small and don't require too much time to make. 

This cute set will go on top of the DIY Diaper Cake I made!

Let's face it. Kids things are cute. They're miniature and the kiddos look good modeling anything! Anyone who knows me knows ...
