FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Wee One Baby Bonnet

FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Wee One Baby Bonnet

My Wee One Bonnet is a mix of moss stitch granny squares and a few other fun stitches that works up nicely in this cute unisex bonnet! I made this one in Marly Bird’s Chic Sheep Yarn in the color VIP but don’t be limited to that! You can make this in every color of the rainbow for all the babies or Wee Ones that you know!

This little bonnet has a bit of a square shape which makes this have a little bit of a vintage appeal. Many of the old school bonnets had a similar shape and this one is a sweet one to resurrect this fun look. One of these would make a lovely addition to any layette.

This bonnet is a year round wear item, but is perfect for fitting under a hood since it has little bulk. It is also nice for springtime to protect ears from a slight breeze or chill in the air. You can’t go wrong with one of these for your little one or for a gift!

 

Follow along with this video tutorial to learn how to make this bonnet:

FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Sloth Lovey

FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Sloth Lovey

I’m taking it “slow” this morning as I finish wrapping up our Valentine’s puns! I really enjoyed “hanging” with you these past two weeks sharing my projects. I really love it “a sloth.” Now that this series is over I can take a little time to “relax” maybe even have a cuppa “slothee.” Maybe be a little “anti-sloth-al” for a day or two and enjoy Valentine’s with this sweet boy. He will be just “hanging out” with his mama all day. I am not trying to get all “philo-sloth-ical,” but this has been a very “sloth-some” experience to really help me “move slowly” back to a regular crochet schedule. Up until recently, I have been in total “sloth-mode”. Thanks for being so “sloth-ful” and kind everybody! Enjoy the final Punny Valentine! ❤ Nadia, Nate, and Nas ❤

 

Follow along with this video tutorial to learn how to make this lovey:

FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Sweet Dream Romper

FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Sweet Dream Romper

This Sweet Dream Romper has been designed to be part of our Halloween costume. I am planning to release pieces of this ensemble from now through mid-October. Each piece will complete our three cosplay costumes that we designed for “Where The Wild Things Are,” a book by Maurice Sendak. Nasir is going to be Max. Here is the first installment to his costume. This one-piece romper , although made for this purpose, was actually designed with versatility in mind. I considered the other possibilities this could be used for. This could be added to a winter baby layette set. You could change the buttons or eliminate them, make it in any color, or sew on leather knee patches for when a baby crawls.

So many options in one piece! I have released the written pattern that you can find here. Below is the video tutorial for The Sweet Dream Romper. Enjoy!

Each year, we try to find a fun and exciting costumes for Halloween, and I love to take you on this journey with me. As each piece of the costume is released, I will update my blog to bring more and more pieces to life. Be sure to follow along to see all these updates!

The first installment of this year’s Halloween costume, is this Sweet Dream Romper. Although my intent is to use this outfit for Nasir’s cosplay costume as Max from the book “Where The Wild Things Are,” you will be able to follow through my video tutorial to create one of your own as part of a baby layette. You can change the colors, add knee patches, use smaller buttons or eliminate the buttons altogether. The creative ideas with this fall & winter pattern are endless! One thing I think we can all agree on is that Nas will be the perfect Max. 😍 He’s already happy about it!

Below is the release of my *FREE* written crochet pattern for those who prefer the written instructions. The video tutorial for this pattern can be found here!
