These Boots Were Made For Walkin’

Craft: Crochet Pattern: High Country Baby Booties by Julie Barber Materials: Paton's Superwash DK, Necklace leather   Here's a little deviation from my proposed list of crafts for 2018 (and there may be a few more to come!)

Fall Creek

This is a sweater I designed to match the Noble Eliott baby sweater. It is available as a PDF (download below).

Leaping Crochet

Craft: Crochet Pattern: Leaping Crochet Baby Hoodie Size: 6 mo. (12 mo. 18 mo. 2T) The first crocheted sweater I have ever tried, and it did not disappoint! Beautiful results. Despite the simplicity of the design and the color striping, the finished object looks very striking. Try different color schemes for different affects as well. The brown, red and blue… Continue reading Leaping Crochet
