A New Hat!

In this blog posting I have to show off my little sister's craftiness!  I got a special Christmas present.

I needed a black hat that covered my ears.  It's cold outside!

The flower is removable!  My sister is making me more flowers in different 
colors, so I can match the outfit I am wearing at the time.

And you all know how I love a little bling, so she used a rhinestone for the button.
She knows me well! 

She has another one in the works for my birthday.  
And, I can't wait to show you the hat she made for my baby girl!


Christmas Shoes

Merry Christmas!  Experimenting with baby shoes, I had to make a pair for my little girl for Christmas.  She turned one on Christmas eve ;0)    I had to tweak the pattern because my fabrics wouldn't work the way the pattern said they were supposed to...but I think they turned out pretty good.  They matched her Christmas dress of course.

Baby Shoes

At this point I'm making Christmas presents and I don't want to ruin the surprise.  BUT!  I am doing a few things as I go...

A friend of mine sent me a link to this lady who sells baby shoe patterns.  I bought 3 of them and have tried one so far.  My little girl is quite the walker and our wood floors are very cold, so I made fleece slippers for her!

FIRST was the prototype...

It's reversible of course because I like everything to be complicated!

I tried it ballerina style first because it looked so sweet, 
but it absolutely would not stay on her foot.

So I added straps onto them instead, but it only 
keeps them on when she's walking.  If she crawls or sits her 
little toes wiggle them right off.  I'm at a loss!

I think I'm going to try the next size down and see what happens.

Baby feet are sooooooo sweet!!
