This is my first day! I really wanted to do a 100 day challenge and while losing weight or saving money would be awesome I wanted to start small. I love to crochet and make baby blankets throughout the year. Some I sell, most I donate. I thought newborn hats are simple enough I could do one a day and of course I will be donating them when I’m all done. There are so many patterns to choose and I will do my best to post a link for each pattern so if you liked the hat you can try it yourself.
Today I started with an easy newborn hat that was created for the American Heart Association’s Little Hats, Big Hearts initiative to raise awareness of heart disease. The hardest part was finding a model for my hat when I was done. I finally found Mr. Hugglesworth and he will be helping me model today and possibly in the future.
Comments or questions are always welcome and I will do my best to respond promptly. Thank you for your support during my hat journey.
My mom sent me some yarn in fun colors for my hat project. Thanks mom! I am enjoying these bright and cheerful hats. Mr. Hugglesworth’s hat came out in a really cool spiral pattern and Brownie is wearing an autism awareness colored hat just in time for autism awareness month!
Brownie is having a little identity crisis. This bunny hat took me two days to complete. The pattern is by the blogger, Repeat Crafter Me, who always has amazing patterns. This one came with numerous sizing and a matching diaper cover. It wasn’t a difficult pattern but a lot of sewing (for me) and after all that hard work I realized I sewed an ear on upside down. Oh well, some baby will just be a unique bunny.
The car applique ended up really large even after I used a smaller hook. Thank goodness it still fit on the hat. For today I didn’t make a hat, instead I made a mini blanket out of the softest yarn I’ve ever worked with. Bernat Pipsqueak! It has the same issues that all fuzzy or eyelash yarn does so I will only use it in one of two patterns, but it is so incredibly soft that I do enjoy working with it. This blanket was made using the standard granny stitch and ended up being about 2′ x 2′. Brownie is one cozy bear.
I couldn’t sleep so I thought I’d get a jump on the next day. This chunky hat with ear flaps and braids was not only cute but easy to make.
Mr. Hugglesworth says this hat is for the dogs. He may be looking for a new career soon, but I do need more work on my sewing. I followed this pattern for the paw print applique.
Sorry I didn’t post yesterday. I have committed myself to several large projects so until those are done I may only be posting every few days.
In honor of St. Patrick’s Day I made a little four leaf clover embellished hat. Today was just a sweet pink fuzzy hat.
Brownie is wearing pink and Mr. Hugglesworth was Irish for the day.
I spent yesterday evening and today trying to work on a personal project with this black and white yarn. I just couldn’t get it right no matter what. So I scrapped the idea for the moment and decided to make a hat with it.
Mr. Hugglesworth looking dapper as usual.
