Colored Eggs Brimmed Beanie

When I was a little girl, the neighborhood girls and myself would play this game called Colored Eggs. We would all choose a favorite color while one of us would play the wolf. The wolf would ask us one by one if our favorite color was “purple, move on to the next egg with another single color in mind and so on”. If the color was right, the egg(girl) would take off running to home base to be safe. If the wolf tagged the egg before the egg reached base, that egg would become the wolf and the game would continue. This hat was inspired by the game colored eggs and my friends that I have known for ages!  It’s made up of the most popular colors we would choose when we played


The cool part is this hat comes in three sizes too! 0-3month, 3-6month, 6-12month.

Lollipop Lazy Eyes

More goodies from the kind and creative folks over at Red Heart!  I knew I wanted to dabble even more with various textures and yarn outside of Super Saver(my go to favorite for everything).   This time I used Red Hearts Boutique Fur. You can find it HERE

   The color I used is called Azalea. It was fun and flirty and reminded me of girls night in!!  What goes better with a girls night in that a good old sleepover favorite. A sleeping mask! 

  The fur is super  soft and feels great on my face. It is a bit challenging to work with, you need to rely on feel and not sight when using this yarn. It’s so darn soft i didn’t mind doing it that way at all!  Now I’d lure wary of using the fur or you feel it may be too hot this season, I created a summer(beginner) version of this pattern too!

Twilight Mermaid Crown

The wonderful folks over at Red Heart sent me some yarn in the mail to review!  As soon as it came to my door my head flooded with ideas!  My go to yarn is always their worsted weight brands, but this time I was determined to branch out and try new things! This gorgeous Red Heart Boutique Twilight in Jaded stuck out to me right away! 

 I loved it. It reminded me of Mermaids and the Sea Punk scene so I had to dabble with it!  I came up with this mermaid themed crown!               The yarn worked up great. Fast and easy since it is a bulky weight yarn.  I used the color Jaded. You can find it along with other varying colors of this yarn HERE.   It is very soft to the touch and I am living for the extra zazzy flecks of the sparkle strand in the yarn!  I can’t get over how soft this yarn is!  It didn’t fray either which surprised me since it seems to be in sort of a tube like shape. What a pleasant surprise.  Now you know I had to share how I made this cool colored crown, so I turned it into a free pattern below.

Sweetie Pie Bow Headband pattern review. 

Oversized bow:  check!

Vintage style: check!

Designed by one of my favorite designers: check!
How could I not make this adorable headband. The Sweetie Pie Bow Headband designed by Hopeful Honey. 

 
This Free pattern can be found HERE

I not only love this design, but it also taught me a whole new way to crochet!!  It’s called Tunisian Crochet and is a form of crochet and knitting combined!  I love how it looks like knit but works up quickly like crochet!  Don’t know how to to Tunisian?  Hopeful Honey Included a video tutorial on how to do it! I really liked this pattern. It worked up fast and was easy to learn. I’m a beginner with Tunisia and she made it very easy to figure out and accomplish!  

   I won’t lie, I have probably worn this headband everyday since I’ve made it!(don’t worry I washed it.  Don’t be gross! Haha)
