And since I am a girl who likes lots of pictures, and thought you guys might too, I thought instead I would share the last project I finished. Cause I have pictures of that!!
Crocheted sock monkey stuff!!!
A sock monkey hat. I want to make one for me to wear this winter, or at least one for Riley. :):)
I've actually made this hat 3 times now, plus I made it in pink and gray a few times first. I love it. I bought the pattern here. It is awesome, and I've use it as a base for lots of other hats that I've made too.
A fun sock monkey diaper cover, with a tail attached!
I've also made this 3 times, although I left the tail off for one of my friends. It is so cute, I am totally making cute diaper covers for any future babies I might have! I bought that pattern here. It is a great pattern, with measurements included. I love it when baby stuff patterns include measurements, cause I don't have a baby handy to measure and I like to know I'm making things exactly the right size. Oh, and the pattern doesn't include the tail, I designed that myself, and just sewed it on.
And finally sock monkey boots!!!
I love these things. And they are so teeny tiny. They don't look look it in the picture, but they fit in my hand. Eeek!! One of my friends asked for these. He had seen the ones I had made in different colors, and wanted them to match the sock monkey hat and diaper cover. I was so excited to make him this set! Him and his fiance had been through a lot, experiencing a heartbreaking loss last year, then complications throughout the entire pregnancy. I felt like I was holding my breath for them, hoping everything would be okay. It was. Their little boy is 7 weeks old today, and so very loved by his parents!! I got to see pictures of him wearing the hat, boots and diaper cover, and he is adorable!!
Oh yeah, the pattern for the boots is here. I own several of her patterns, and love them!! She even has videos to help you in case you get confused!
I have 3 crochet projects I'm working on now that I might share, plus I have a few playroom projects I'm working on that you guys might like. I can't believe the playroom is almost finished! More than half the stuff in there I either made, refinished, built or sewed. And compared to last year (when it was pretty much an empty room) it looks amazing!
Anyways, it's getting late, and I didn't sleep good last night, so I'm going to bed. Good night bloggy friends. :):)
