Baby Mania

Everyone seems pregnant, don’t they? A big congrats to Mama Snod, by the way…I couldn’t be happier and couldn’t be dreaming of more crafts to make for her little one on the way.

I’ve gotten some requests for baby hats so like an elf clicking away into the night on my needles, I’ve been cranking out hats, slowly but surely.

I may get carpal tunnel soon, but I’ve made some pretty creations in the process.

I absolutely love making baby hats, well, baby things in general, simply because it’s so quick. Most of the hats I made in one night (1-2 hours) and then added all of the detail work. The owl, giraffe, and cherry blossom hat were all new things for me to try…using felt and techniques like blanket stitching, i-cord knitting, and hot gluing (that’s a tricky one! All of those webby strings flying everywhere!)

On the way are fall-themed hats. I found a TON of cute ideas – I’m excited to share!

All of this is making me consider an Etsy account…we’ll see.
