CROCHET T-BAR BOOTIES

Tiny crochet T-bar booties...

Tiny crochet T-bar booties…

This is a pair of dinky little purple T-bar shoes which I made using a free pattern I picked up at my local craft store. I had some wool left over from another project so I thought that I may as well have a go at making them.

I think they turned out pretty well, considering the fact that I’m not very good at following patterns (I always lose my place and confuse the abbreviations.) Apparently they have been well received by the little lady to whom I sent them, well she tried to eat them, which as we all know is a pretty big compliment if you’re less than a year old, so that’s good enough for me!

CROCHET BEAR HOOD

Snuggley and warm…

I’d seen lots of versions of this cute little hood on places like Etsy and seeing as it didn’t look too complicated I thought that I’d have a go at working it out myself without a pattern. It’s basically rows of half-double crochet worked back and forth down either side of a central row, followed by rounds to make the neck part. I’m really pleased with how it turned out (partly because it makes my niece look like an Ewok!)

DIDDY CROCHET RATTLES

Crochet rattles

These are a pair of tiny crochet rattles which I made for Christmas gifts. The pattern was very simple, starting from a magic ring. I used a plastic Easter egg filled with dried lentils for the actual rattle and then padded it a little with some wadding to make them more comfortable for little hands to grasp.

CROCHET SNOWFLAKE GARLAND

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m a fidgeter. I can’t help it. I like to have something to do with my hands and crochet fits the bill in the winter evenings. This is a little garland that I made for no other reason than to have something to do!

It’s loosely based on a pattern that I copied from YouTube but I left off some of the more more fiddly bits as I’m just not that advanced yet!

CROCHET ELEPHANT

How cute is this little fella? It’s my youngest nieces first birthday so I have taken the opportunity to challenge my crochet skills and make this little guy.

It's time we talked about the elephant in the room...

I (attempted) to follow a pattern that I found on a beautiful blog called allaboutami.com.

I made a couple of minor changes to the pattern, stitched on the eyes and left off the tusks, because I’m fairly certain that he is destined to spend much of his life in a toddlers mouth. I also put a pot of dried lentils in amongst the stuffing so that he rattles…

KITTY CAT HAT

My crochet skills are gradually improving and as my friend is expecting her first child I have made this for her.

Anyone who has met me will be aware that I’m not the most maternal individual, I’m not one of those people who looks at a baby and goes all gooey, I tend to just focus on the goo that they are invariably covered in! I do however go a bit gooey over baby animals, hence the cat ears and I do think that baby clothes are quite cute, hence the tiny hat….And you never know, the cunning kitten disguise might be enough to convince me to give it a cuddle once the baby does arrive.

Sleepy Easter Bunny slippers

These are some little bunny shoes that I made for my youngest niece. She’s too tiny to fully appreciate the joy of an Easter egg (why does the chocolate taste so much better just by being egg shaped?) so I felt that these would make a good spring themed substitute.

but would they be as cute in my size...?
