Crafting has really picked up this past year due to what’s happened in the economy. It’s the perfect time to save your money and create your own things. Crochet is one of the more popular crafts that has been brought back to life. Crochet hats are a new thing too. I don’t wear hats that often, but my nieces and nephews wear hats all the time. I came across this really cute web site that had handmade crochet baby hats. I think these are really great hats that can be worn for any occasion. You can make a different kind of bow for each occasion. There are cute flowered bows you can put on just for a spring hat. My nieces would look so adorable in these hats, I just had to share them with you. I really do think this is a neat idea because it’s made with yarn it can be a little flexible for a little baby’s head. We have plenty of crochet crafts for babies that you might enjoy. One of them I really like is the baby hanging storage. No matter what kind of crochet pattern you make for your baby, it will always be an adorable one.
Because I believe in supporting your community first and foremost, it’s time for another local Etsy pick here in Dublin, Ireland. I was pretty delighted to stumble upon the clever work of Maria Pantel. She clearly has a sense of humor about fashion with her Y-TOP, repurposing a pair of classic men’s Y-fronts (tighty-whiteys to us Yanks). And she also seems to have some pretty advanced knitting skills. I want to curl up with this pretty red scarf. But best of all is the fantastic hat she made from an old soccer ball washed up on the beach.
I find it completely fascinating and strangely gorgeous. It’s like a relic of my youth…a glittering, nostalgic memory of years playing soccer and then growing up.
