Rag Quilt Baby Hats and Booties

Rag Quilt Baby Hats and Booties

Hello Everyone!

I’m so excited to give you the patterns for the hats and booties that match the Rag Quilt Style Baby Blanket! There are three size options available for both the hats and the booties. Perfect for a growing baby!

These patterns are easy and work up seriously fast, which is great if you’re looking for something to give as a gift short notice or you just don’t have a ton of time to spend crocheting.

I’ve also included two trim options. If you feel like the ruffle is too feminine, simple single crochets can replace it. I showed the results in the grey version.

Boho Braided Bucket Bag

Boho Braided Bucket Bag

Hi all!

I hope your day is going great. I’m here today to give you another free pattern! And I think I picked the cutest little design for a purse, handbag, pocketbook, suitcase…whatever it is you call it!

Since it’s the middle of summer here, I knew that I wanted to make a bag that I could just throw a few things into and run out the door. When you’re a mother of three little boys, that’s about the best I can do. Everywhere we go is rush, rush, rush and half the time I forget some of the things I was supposed to bring.

Cappuccino Triangle Shawl

Cappuccino Triangle Shawl
Hey everyone!

I could not be more happy with how this Cappuccino Triangle Shawl turned out! This was the first time that I had ever tried the Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable line of yarn and I tell you what…It’s awesome! It is incredibly soft and the natural color changes throughout the skeins make for a beautiful work of art.

Mimi's Ear Warmer Headband

My boys call my mom Mimi and even though I had never heard that name when I was a child, it seems to be quite popular for a grandmother’s name. I believe it started out as “Grammy”, but one of my twins changed it when he couldn’t say Grammy.

Mimi tries to make it to the boys sporting events and we’ve faced a wide variety of weather conditions here in PA while supporting the kids.

Taupe Infinity Scarf

Well here it is—the matching infinity scarf to the Taupe Slouch Hat—just as promised!

This scarf came out unbelievably well and matches the hat perfectly, in my honest opinion. It’s made with Caron Simply Soft in Taupe and it is super squishy and oh so soft! The exact type of accessory that I would love to wrap around myself when it’s cold outside. The last thing anyone wants to deal with when they’re trying to fight off a chill is a scratchy scarf! Yuck.

Taupe Slouch Hat

This past winter, I made quite a few winter hats and ear warmers like the Clusters and Stripes Ear Warmer Headband or the Jess Mess-y Bun Hat. Those kinds of projects are fun and fast and I liked giving them away as gifts.

I had been eyeing some yarn at the store, Caron Simply Soft Taupe, for a few weeks, never knowing just what I would do with it. One day, on a whim, two skeins ended up in my cart. It was just so pretty. The yarn actually sat in my stash for a few more weeks before I decided to do anything with it. Can anyone relate?

Clusters and Stripes Ear Warmer Headband

I call my Styrofoam head The Great Sphinx since her nose is all mashed in! She was delivered to me that way. She also has a very deep gash in the side of her cheek. It must have been a serious battle to get to my house on that delivery truck! I’m not really sure what happened there. It’s funny though and I won’t replace her just yet. I think the battle scars give her character.

Does anyone else give inanimate objects crazy names? Just me? Okay.

Strawberries and Cream X's & O's Infinity Scarf
Hey Everyone!

I hope your week is going well. Even though I’m writing this post in June, it is never a bad idea to start making hats and scarves so you’re prepared for the coming winter. What was that story about the grasshopper who sang all summer?

Ah, never mind. You get my point.

It’s also funny to think that even though, here in Pennsylvania, we are just beginning our summer, the whole other side of the world is working their way through fall and into winter. So I suppose technically, winter hats and scarves can be relevant year round for at least someone!

Navy Clusters Infinity Scarf

Navy Clusters Infinity Scarf

I’m all about matching sets. I love sets! So naturally I had to make the Navy Clusters Infinity Scarf to match the Navy Clusters Hat.  Sounds logical, right?

When I looked at the original design of the Cream Clusters Infinity Scarf, which is super long, I decided that I’d go shorter this time. Maybe something that could still wrap around the neck snugly to fight off that cold winter chill or even something that could be worn around the neck like a giant fiber art necklace—a statement piece.

Navy Clusters Hat

Hey Everyone!

When I crocheted the Jess Mess-y Bun Hat, I loved the cluster stitch and wanted to use it again and again and again. And I thought what if not everyone likes the ponytail hat? Or what about women with short hair?  I, myself, prefer the full hat without the hole for my hair to peek out.  I’m the kind of woman that wears my hair in a ponytail most of the time because I’m too lazy to style it. (Truth bomb)  LOL! So, that’s why I prefer a full hat like this Navy Clusters Hat.  I’m able to let my hair down and it doesn’t matter if I’m having a bad hair day or not.  The hat covers any wild locks that have a mind of their own. Unfortunately, the minute I remove the hat, my hair goes right back into a ponytail.

C’est la vie, I guess.
