It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged about what I’ve been crocheting.
I had an order awhile back for 8 old school football helmets. The person who ordered these hats is a football coach of a little league team. For each game he gives away a hat to the MVP. Their team this year was the Indianapolis Colts, so he got a hat for each game in their season. I thought it was such a cool idea!
I also had an order for a couple pairs of booties. One was a set of little loafers in dark blue, and the other was a set of Granny Square Baby booties (Pattern by Mamachee) for a baby blessing. The little one’s name begins with an L.
Another order was for a yellow cluster stitch hat. If I ever have a girl, she will probably have a hat like this. It’s just so cute.
A couple posts ago, I mentioned that my cousin ordered a couple hats from me. One was the chef hat that I blogged about and the other was a cute little beanie in OSU colors.
That’s all I’ve had for orders for awhile. It’s a slow season for business, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t had projects to work on.
One of my nieces had her 2nd birthday back in March. I made her some birdie maracas to use during her “I Hear” therapy for her cochlear implants. It was so fun to make them. I made two for her, but had to make a third for my boys. It’s a really fun toy. I got the pattern from Mamachee. *She has a lot of awesome patterns.
I also made some hats for my newest little nephew. He was born a lot earlier than we all anticipated, but he’s doing great. I came up with a new Panda bear hat that I love. I’m planning on writing up the pattern, I just haven’t gotten around to it. I also sent two other hats.

I also have a lot of friends who are expecting babies. This, of course, means that I have had fun crocheting up little hats for them. Here is another “Pop a Color” beanie that I made. The color combinations for this hat are endless!
And finally I wanted to share a little “upcycling” idea for old crochet hats. A couple years ago I made a beanie for one of my friend’s sons. Well, her second child was a girl so she asked me to “girlify” the hat for her. All I did was take some pink yarn and stitch around the bottom and weaved some pink into the braids. Then I stitched some hearts and it was perfect.
That’s all I have for now, but I have finally found a new cause to donate to. More details on that coming soon!
