The other morning we woke up to everything in our neighborhood covered in ice! I’m sure I would not have liked it if I had to go out in it but luckily, I was able to stay in and enjoy the beauty of it all. I’ve said before, I’m no photographer but I just had to capture the eery feeling that I had looking out at the trees weighed down with that gorgeous crystal.
I really felt like an ice princess standing on my back porch that morning! Everything around me was white and sparkling!
There is beauty in everything if you just look around!
I just love, love, love blogging about everything I’m making! I only wish I were advanced enough already to create my own patterns. Hopefully soon. Until then, I will just continue to share new things I’m making and the links to the wonderful people who create these patterns! Thanks to the help of others, I just completed this project using Repeat Crafter Me’s bunny hat/diaper cover pattern seen here: http://www.repeatcrafterme.com/2013/01/crochet-bunny-hat-pattern.html
This is how my finished set came out:
I love the hat! I followed her directions exactly, except I chose not to do a face and instead added a flower on the side by following the tutorial on Youtube by Yolandasotolopez. Her flowers are two layers, but I wanted a third. So after finishing the second round of petals (treble crochet) I added a third round of petals (double treble crochet), joining back into the center of the flower. I love how it came out! It has sort of a dahlia-look to it! (Please forgive the bad pictures, I’m no photographer)
On the downside, my diaper cover did not fit my 10 month old. Not even close. So I will definitely have to re-make it. But thanks to these super-easy tutorials, it will be a breeze!
Hope you’re all having a great day 🙂
