Crochet Tutorial: Vintage Style Baby Bonnet

Crochet Tutorial: Vintage Style Baby Bonnet

I love to create matching layette sets when designing items for babies. I love the idea of a cute dress with matching accessories. Today, I have the second installment for the Happy Hearts Baby Dress. I designed a Vintage Style Baby Bonnet.

This sweet baby hat has similar ruffle detail as seen on the cap sleeves of the Happy Hearts Baby Dress. Using similar colors with this matching detail, this tiny bonnet is the perfect pairing for this sweet outfit.

With more pieces to come, this is the perfect set to start now and add to as the pieces become available! This will make a wonderful gift!

Watch this video tutorial to learn how to make this simple bonnet pattern:

Crochet Tutorial: Happy Hearts Baby Dress

Crochet Tutorial: Happy Hearts Baby Dress

It has been quite a while, but I finally completed my latest infant fashion piece! My Happy Hearts Baby Dress is a lovely one piece cotton frock made with Red Heart Yarns Scrubby Smoothie.

This lovely dress has tiny popcorn stitch detail on the skirt creating two stacked hearts. The simple ruffle creates a cap sleeve on the bodice. I added a tiny ribbon accent to complete the piece. Each detail was carefully thought out to create this wonderful project.

Easy enough for all stages of crocheters, this infant attire will be a hit for everyone!! As a crochet artist you will love the simplicity of this design while making it, and the final product is sure to WOW the masses! Andddd, I can guarantee that any little baby will look adorable in this frock

Crochet Tutorial: Frederick the Misfit Monster Toy

Crochet Tutorial: Frederick the Misfit Monster Toy

 

I had the wonderful pleasure of spending a few days with my sweet nephew. On Saturday afternoon, he and I set out to work on creating a character out of his imagination. My nephew chose the colors and the features as well as giving him a name. Meet Fredrick the Misfit Monster! This darling amigurumi was born from the imagination of a very special 4 year old.

 

Frederick is huggable and silly. He has lost most of his teeth but 3, from eating lots of candy that he sneaks at night. He loves adventures, finds mischief and mayhem, yet loves to cuddle. He protects and scares away creatures in the closet and under the bed or behind curtains! He likes to read books and play games on the iPad. Fredrick is a best friend. This is a great project to involve children. They can choose colors and features, as well as giving their very own misfit monster a name and personality! This simple project is sure to delight any child!!

Crochet Tutorial: Flamingo Feet Baby Booties

Crochet Tutorial: Flamingo Feet Baby Booties

I read a quote the other day which said:
Advice from a flamingo
Wade into Life,
Stand out in a crowd,
Spend time with your flock,
Find the right balance
Show your true color,
Keep your beak clean,
And don’t forget to get your feet wet!!

So, with those sentiments, I bring you my Fun Feathered Flamingo Feet Baby Booties! Start out on the right foot, or in this case, the right feet with this great project! Flocks of love were put into making these tiny slippers that pack a big PINK punch!!

These booties are one of the most versatile patterns I have ever designed. Although these slippers were designed for a 6 month old baby, changing hook sizes can increase the size of the pattern for a bit older infant. But I don’t stop there, choose a basic slipper pattern and follow along on the crocodile stitch and add the other embellishments to make your slippers ANY size!! See tips in my Notes section below.

Along with Flamingos, I provide the written instructions to take this pattern from pink to white in these beautiful Sweet Swan Slippers!

I was doing some online shopping when I came across this pair of swan slippers. Here is where I found inspiration to create this lovely pair in crochet!!

Using these guidelines, branch out to make Ducks, Geese, Peacocks, Toucans, Parrots, Cockateils, Pelicans, or any other fun bird! The possibilities are endless! What a fun way to have birds of a different feather, flocking together! Get started here and remember to read the Notes section for these great tips and more!

I made the One Skein Bunny!

A few years ago, I made the Caron One Pound One Skein Bunny, by Deb Richey, for my cousin. As Easter is approaching, she commissioned me to make another large bunny for her godson.

Although I did not use Caron’s One Pound Skein, I found a Red Heart Super Saver Jumbo skein to make this bunny pattern which worked just as well!


This pattern by Deb Richey is such a fun pattern to make! I forgot how adorable this bunny is! As it started to take shape, I remembered how lanky this creature is. What a fun stuffed toy for a little boy or girl during Easter!! This pattern took me a total of 10 hours to make.


Deb’s pattern is easy to follow and easy to read. In the end, it creates such an excellent piece. If you are looking for something fun to create this Easter, or any time of the year, this is a great project!  This would be lovely in a nursery, it would make a nice gift, or a fun companion for the little ones in your life. The overall size of this bunny measures 36 inches tall (92 cm).

Crochet Tutorial: Princess Costume

An enormous amount of improvising was done in the creation of this princess dress that I made for my Halloween costume. Nate and I are attending a costume party this year and I was all set to make sure that this was created in time. But boy, did I underestimate how hard it would be to make this ensemble! In the process, I ran out of yarn, I had to frog my work a few times, and actually shed a few tears. The skirt wasn’t as voluminous as I hoped, but you know what, it doesn’t matter anymore! I finished it, and I am getting passed the flaws to appreciate the work that went into making this. Overall, it may not be exactly what I imagined, but once in awhile a project takes on a life of its own and still turns out alright!

This pattern is for the basic dress design. However, you can change color. Add or subtract embellishments or details to customize your own costume. Pick a princess you love and go for it! Whether it be yellow like the one in this tutorial or pink, blue, a blue top with yellow skirt, green. Modifying this for any character can bring your costume to life!

Once the shell of the costume was made and the side panels added, I used similar colored tulle to enhance the sides giving the skirt full scallop look. I sewed the tulle in the sides and tucked it in the center then secured the entire piece with a center rose. I used the medium size rose flower from my Floral Dream Crown pattern.

Using a corset style lace-up, I used ribbon to create a closure for the shirt. Simply tying it down the back creates this look.

bellecostume7
I wrapped tulle around the shoulders of the top and using a couple stitches, I secured it into place. I added another rose in the center bust area to tie in this design with similar details as the skirt.

I finished the shell of my princess skirt in the photo below. It was still a work in progress as I planned to add details and volume. I had a revelation after trying it on for sizing, that by itself, the shell works nicely for a basic maxi skirt. After trying it on I was like, “I would totally wear the skirt like this!”

NOTES:

-The  pattern video tutorial starts at 8 minutes 14 seconds. The first 8 minutes are frequently asked questions and other information.
-You can use any cotton/acrylic/polyester yarn you want to use. As long as it’s a thinner and lighter weight yarn. Having so much yarn can result in a heavy skirt.

-This pattern is written for an adult size, but you can make it any size by chaining more or less. The top doesn’t have any multiple so you can chain as many as you need to in the beginning. The skirt is in a multiple of 14, so you can make your chain as big as you want as long as your count is in the multiple of 14. (I explain all this in the video if that is confusing)

-You can use a smaller or larger hook to make this smaller or bigger depending on your tension.

-For measurements and to learn how big mine turned out to be, watch the beginning of the video tutorial. For the top, I measure it as I go.

-This took me approximately 12 hours to complete fully.
