Free Pattern: Baby Earflap Hat - Newborn


NOTE: In an effort to standardize my hat sizes, I revamped this pattern.  This one should fit newborns a little better.  I am keeping the old version available here, in case anyone still wants access to it.

The toddler size is here.
The 9-12 month size is here.
The 6-month size is here. 
The 3-month size is here.
The premie size is here.

Free Pattern: Earflap Hat Newborn Old Version


NOTE: In an effort to standardize my hat sizes, I revamped this pattern.  The new version is here.  I am keeping the old version available, in case anyone still wants access to it.

This hat will keep those tiny ears toasty!  It would be adorable for newborn photos.

Craft Tutorial: Button Rattle Baby Toy

 When my #1 got interested in my keys, I made my first version of this, with a rattling whistle, a jingle bell and beads of different shapes and sizes.  With similar appeal to (but less germs than) my keys, this was my substitute.  

Also, #1 didn't get her fine motor skills as fast as some babies, so it was hard for her to hold many rattles.  This toy is much lighter than many store-bought toys, and the string construction makes it easy for babies like her, with less-developed fine motor skills, to grasp.  It was her favorite toy for a couple of months - one of my proudest crafting moments.  :)

Free Pattern: Button Baby Headband

I really hate weaving in ends.  This headband still has only two ends to weave in, even after sewing on a button - yay for less work!

Free Pattern: Tiniest Heart Applique



Happy Valentine's Day!  These would be a perfect addition to a card or gift for your sweetheart, but hearts are in season year-round.  I used these hearts - about the size of my thumbnail - on the Boo-Boo Buddy Cold Pack Cover for my girl.

Free Pattern: Boo-Boo Buddy Ice Pack Cover


When my #1 gets a bump, she likes a little baggie of ice.  It always has to have a towel, though.  Kitchen towels are hard for a two-year-old to keep around a baggie of ice, so I came up with these cuties to hold her little ice packs.  This would also be good for kids who like to take the ice out of the bag and scatter it.
