Special Baby Shower Surprise

Special Baby Shower Surprise

This past Sunday, my Aunt and my Mom organized a baby shower for Nate and me. To say it was amazing is such an understatement! Not only did my family have so much in store for us, there were epic surprises to be showered on us as well.

After opening our gifts from family and friends, my mom made an announcement that there were more gifts. Confused, I wasn’t sure what she meant.

A quick background

I am part of a large online blogger community. In our private group, this blogger community shares ideas and support for one another. Besides my personal family, these ladies feel like family even though we haven’t met in real life. I feel like we know one another despite that we haven’t met. We talk almost daily and check in with one another. We share patterns and advice, we count on each other in our shared desire to grow our craft. We have a sisterhood that transcends the miles and continents.

So, when my mom announced that this incredible group of ladies had conspired to bring their own version of an online baby shower to my family baby shower, I was so overwhelmed with joy and shock! It felt so amazing to find out that together, they reached out to be a part of this special day. They coordinated through Marly Bird to send surprise packages to my mom and my aunt. Each package was a gift for our sweet baby boy.

Both Nate and I could not believe it! We had NO CLUE! Seriously, my mom is the best at keeping secrets because I talk to her a half dozen times a day and NOT ONCE did she even hint there was this in store for us at the shower!! As soon as my Aunt Gail brought this giant box full of gifts I started getting emotional all over again!

Each crochet designer/blogger created something extraordinarily special for this baby. Below, please join me in this video as I open these wonderful gifts. Please understand that in this moment I was so emotional and overwhelmed. Tears flowed freely, my nose was running wild, and I kept repeating how awesome it was and how much in shock this felt!

Teddy Hats, yarn and a handmade card by Fiber Flux

 

All the beautiful cards!

I am in complete awe of these amazing women. Not only are they spectacular designers and creators, but I have the joy of calling each of them my FRIEND! WE are so lucky. I am so lucky. This baby is so lucky and so loved.

From the bottom of my full heart, THANK YOU!! There are no words to describe this feeling. I am so grateful for your gifts of time and creativity. Thank you for your gift of love and friendship. Again, my heart is so full.

 

On a side note. In the last frame of the video I was hugging a teddy bear. Some of you may not know that at the end of March we lost my Grandpa Bob. In January, he was told by his doctors he had about six months to live. He had hopes to live long enough to meet my baby. My grandpa was so supportive and caring through my journey through illness and life, and he wanted to be here to see me through this special time. God had other plans for him. He passed away on March 24th, 2019.

My mom took one of his shirts and sent it in to a designer on Etsy. She made a memory teddy bear out of my grandpa’s shirt. My mom had a photo of my grandpa and me, and in it he wore that same shirt. She gifted both together – the photo in a frame and this sweet bear to put in the nursery. This gift was so special and although my Grandpa won’t be here, a small part of him will always be with us.

Crochet Tutorial: Enchanted Rose Cape

Crochet Tutorial: Enchanted Rose Cape

So many little girls love to play dress up or pretend to be their favorite Disney Princess. I was no exception, and that spirit was something I never grew out of. I love Disney movies and the characters they embody. My Enchanted Rose Cape was inspired by one of my favorites. Fashioned after a scene from Beauty and the Beast, I created this caplet/cape combination piece to add to a costume that I am in the process of creating.

cape1

As I was creating this piece, I saw the potential for so many possibilities that could come out of this one fashion item. Changing the color to ivory, or even a sparkly white yarn, this would make a lovely winter bridal cape. In fact, just changing the color to match something in your wardrobe would make this a perfect piece for a formal cover-up. It could be an everyday poncho/cape in tones of grays or warm browns. This could also be transformed into other costume capes for characters such as Red Riding Hood, Rose Red, or any other fairy-tale or medieval character. The possibilities in color choices are endless, and the ideas know no bounds. Have fun with it!!

cape2

It doesn’t stop there. If you prefer to not include the longer cape, this would make a cute little caplet, or remove the hood and it makes a nice poncho. Adjust the size and you can change the whole look! With this easy repeat pattern and stitch, anything is possible!

cape3

Enjoy this pattern and share your photos on the Facebook page when you finish!!

NOTES:
-You can use a smaller or larger hook to make this square depending on your tension.
-This pattern is in multiples of 3, so you can make this as big or small as you want.
-Just continue the repeat pattern until your piece is as big or as wide as you want it to be to go onto the next step if you feel like I stopped too soon in the video tutorial. This pattern is very versatile and you can make this as big as you want.
-This piece works the poncho first, then the cape, then the hood last.
-The hood is made separately and then sewn onto the cape.
-For measurements and to learn how big mine turned out to be, watch the beginning of the video tutorial.
-This took me about 15 hours to complete from beginning to end.

Crochet Tutorial: Ninja Turtle Hat

One of my most popular videos has always been this Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle beanie hat. It is a very easy to follow and very adaptable pattern. Seriously, if you know basic crochet, you can increase or decrease to make any size. I do have a written pattern for six different sizes though, if you wish to follow along. It is a paid pattern available on my Etsy Shop.

Ninja Turtle Hat
Whether your child is a fan of Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael, or Donatello, they are going to LOVE to pretend play to be that character when they wear these hats! It will give them dynamic Turtle Power!

Every boy or girl will want to feel like a super hero! This is a quick and easy way to give them a chance to play that part.

Crochet Tutorial: Slouchy Hat

Crochet Tutorial: Slouchy Hat

As many of you have seen, I cover my hair. When I go out for a quick run to the grocery store, I’ll throw on a beanie really fast and run out the door! My go-to hats are these super slouchy ones. Today’s video is on how to make one of these great projects.

When I’m out and about wearing this hat, I get so many compliments and people ask me where I got it. I love to tell them I made it myself, and you will too!

Whenever I have made my version of this hat, I always use yarn that has very vibrant colors and different variations of jewel tones. This example in today’s blog uses Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable yarn in the Stained Glass color.

Slouchy Hat
This super slouchy multicolored beanie can be worked up in an afternoon! I promise, you will get years of wear out of each hat you make! They make great gifts, not just to yourself, haha, but to others!

At the very end of the video tutorial, I explain how to make it smaller for child sizes. The written pattern is for a teen/adult sized hat.
Keep Calm
You could add your own embellishments by adding buttons, a bow, or any other fashionable item to make it your own!

Follow along with this video to learn how to make this slouchy hat.
