Pattern: Spring Beanie and Headband

I made Evie a new headband the other night using Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Cotton Yarn! It is SO soft and one of my favorite yarns to work with. I had plenty of yarn leftover so I decided to make Penelope a matching beanie to go with it! The color I chose is very springy and the light-weight cotton is perfect for the current weather! My favorite part is that I was able to make both the headband and beanie for less than one skein of yarn. Both patterns are very simple and beginner friendly.

Pattern: Sun Bum Tote

Yay! Finally a new pattern to post! I never realized before I started designing my own crochet how much work goes into pattern writing! First there is the idea stage, then the yarn buying stage (my favorite), then the making and frogging and re-doing stage, all while scribbling notes down so I don’t forget what I did. When you finally have the finished product.. Bam!! Now you have to type up the pattern, find testers, send to testers, wait for your testers to give you feedback. Edit the pattern, take pretty pictures, post on Instagram AND still have to make a listing on Etsy. PHEW! I’m so amazed at all the support I get for my patterns and I love to be able to give back. I hope you like my newest pattern The Sun Bum Tote!

Be sure to follow and tag me on Instagram if you make the Sun Bum Tote! I love seeing your finished work! You are always welcome to sell your finished work with ANY of my patterns, but please link back to my shop/blog for credit! 🙂
