This bonnet is made with a chunky yarn and works up nicely. It is really soft and the touch of pink in the ears really stands out.

The bonnet is too small for my son you can see that it doesn’t go all the way around the head. He is just modeling and looking completely adorable!

 

Fun project! Give it a try before Easter I am sure you will love it.

Until next time…Happy Crocheting! And Happy First Day of Spring!!

Hello everyone

This week for free pattern finds I have decided to put together the 5 best little girl dress patterns I have come across that could work as Easter Dresses for your darling girls.

Elenka by Inna Aleksandrova

This dress is adorable with its ribbon detail and an empire waist. It has been made by many so there are lots of examples on this Ravelry download. The dress featured here was taken by MissusVonkysmeed.

Angel Wings Pinafore by Maxine Gonser

This little dress is so cute! I think it is my favorite being worn over a cape sleeve under shirt and a tulle skirt. Also a download from Ravelry, this dress photo is by GraceFaithHope. And although the pattern is for 3 month it can be altered to fit an older girl.

Beehive Baby Sport – I Heart My Dress (crochet) from Patons

This lovely dress is a free download from Patons. You have to sign up but it’s worth it too see the variety of free patterns they offer. There are little heart pockets and a matching beret. If done in more springlike colors this dress could be very cute for Easter.

Valentine’s Day Hearts

Hello Again,

Technically where I am it is 10:45pm and still Wednesday. Sorry I am posting so late for What I am working on Wednesday but it has been crazy trying to get the valentine sacks together! I am sure you know the feeling especially if you have a daughter /heart. But I am very pleased with how my items came out.

Have a look.

I have heart rings, bracelets and clip on accessories.

Clips are very versatile. I can put this heart in my daughter’s hair or just attach it to a shirt, bag or beanie.

I made these easy bracelets by chaining 21 then sc 2 rows and slip stitching all the way around to finish the edges. I left two secured tails for ties.

This photo shows the bottom of the crochet heart ring. I made this separate from the heart then attached it. Chain 10 then slip stitch back across and join tightly for very small fingers of course.

I hope you guys like my crochet heart collection. Any one of these gifts can be made in less than an hour maybe 30 minutes depending on your level. Check my original featured post for “Easiest Crochet Heart” for a tutorial on how to crochet a basic heart.

Enjoy! And Have a Great Valentines Day!!
