Elsa Inspired Crochet Hat (2)

Last year, I made an Elsa and Anna Crochet Hat following HanDIY's tutorials and Yolanda's Crown pattern (links in original posts). If you know me, you know that I've always wanted a big family and both boys and girls. Through our struggles of getting pregnant, we ended up with 3 wonderful (destructive) boys. They are my world, the air that I breathe and the reason my life is full of joy and motivation to... just live happily. Okay, enough of that (haha). I wanted to make another hat for a little princess turning 4 next month. 

This time, I followed the tutorial for the crown. I loved the crown on the first one I made but if you know kids, it doesn't stay pretty like that. 

First Ana Hat
This crown sticks to the hat so it's hard to mess it up. I used the basic increase method to get the desired size for a 3-5 year old. In the first hat, I used an off white color yarn because I felt that the white was too white BUT.... I used white this time and I LOVE it. 

I wanted to start putting product tags on my stuff so I ordered these from All This Wood on Etsy. It's so cute! It's tiny but I like it tiny so it's not so obvious and visible.

Crochet Minion Inspired hat

Soooo... It's January 2016 and I had high hopes for making these hats for Halloween (shame on me!). I only completed one of the 3 I was making. I finished the hats, I just never put on the eyes for the other 2. I actually forgot about them because I stopped nursing which means I stopped pumping at work. When I wasn't working from my phone while pumping, I was crocheting... That's probably the only thing I miss about pumping... having time to crochet.

One of these days, I'll attach eyes to the other 2 hats! If you paid attention, you would notice that I forgot to add the mouth to the photos below! I was wondering what was missing! So I added it and took just one more photo (above).

BB-8 Star Wars Inspired Crochet Hat

I saw the Star Wars on Christmas Eve and thought it was a good movie. Let me just say I was not a huge fan so I was a little lost in the movie but eventually understood what was going on. 

Anyway, how cute is the new droid? I knew that I'd find a pattern out there for it and sure enough, I found it at HanDIY. I just love her! I made Anna & Elsa hats using her tutorial too!

Crochet Lulu Pom Pom Scarf

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