Frilly Beaded Baby Booties

Just finished this precious little pair of baby booties. The original pattern is not beaded. I was testing the pattern in the different sizes and whether to string the beads or apply as I went.  I used the crystal style beads I had on hand. Next pair will have pearls.

Shadow Baby Hat – 15K Downloads!

This is my first pattern design and I couldn’t be more thrilled that it’s become so popular. Normally, I design more from necessity than from my own creativity. But this little gem was special after I learned the beauty of knitted slipped stitches. It’s quite simple and can be adapted to all sizes. And…..the pattern is FREE! Get the pattern HERE.

Photo on the left are the preemie hats I’ve made. Special thanks to Raveler “grantrm” for the adult version she made pictured on the right.


Gypsycream Cuddle Blankie

I finished this little bear blankie. I think it turned out adorable. I made sure before I sewed the bear on the blankie to set the colors in a vinegar bath. I’ve had 1st hand experience with this pink running. Now, I think I’m finished with the gifts for the great-niece due in May. Now on to gifts for boss’s grandson due in July.134
