Little Girl's Shell Crochet Hat



This is one of a few little girl hats I made a couple of weeks ago. They are crocheted using Caron Simply Soft acrylic yarn. The simple shell stitch makes this a very nice hat to wear all season. The way this hat is made it can fit a girl from age 3 to 10 years old. I just love the way it turned out. Of course, great photos make any item look like a thousand bucks!

I worked with Kayla from CBK Photography. She did an awesome job with a great turn around time. Go "like" her facebook page to see her amazing photos. I will be posting new pictures as I get items listed. I can't wait to show you the wonderful pictures I have!

Of course this and a few other items are available in my Etsy shop. If you want a color I don't have listed let me know. I would love to do a custom order for you.

Blog Giveaway: Girl's Flower Clip by Flower Me Boutique


I am very excited to bring you this wonderful giveaway sponsored by Marija from FlowerMeBoutique.

A little bit about Marija:

My background is in interior design with client's home projects ranging from NYC, Telluride, San Francisco to Austin. After I had my daughter, my priorities changed and I opted for a more mellow, predictable schedule and not so creative job. Can't help myself, I yearn to make things and need to get the ideas out of my head.

What started out as a fun, simple project of making bows for my daughter to coordinate with her outfits, has evolved into a fresh concept for hair accessories. I've always been inspired by nature, and flowers appealed to the girlie, delicate side of me. After perfecting these hair clip constructions, I wanted to start sharing them with all the other "princesses" and their moms. They have been a big hit with my friends, family, and a local high end shop.

I donate part of my profit to a Christian organization that works worldwide to help raise families out of poverty. Helping the world one little pretty head at a time :)

Interview with VintagePrecious @ Etsy


Tell us a little about yourself?
My profile on Etsy sums it up, lol. I’m married to the perfect man because he is the one God sent to me. I’m blessed with 4 kids, the youngest in diapers and the oldest behind the wheel. I started sewing and crafting as a child. I fell in love with vintage and design as a teenager. I used to wake up early on Saturday mornings to watch Style with Elsa Klensch and stay up late to watch classic movies.

Where does your inspiration come from?
Vintage! I Love many so many era’s.

Who or what has been most influential in your craft?
My grandmother and my love for vintage. Many of my childhood memories of my grandmother are of her sewing. She had a 1950’s Singer with a blond wood cabinet, before my grandfather passed he gave it to me.


How would you describe your creative process?
I design it first in my mind. Sometimes I have to jump out of bed and sketch something that comes to mind. After drafting my pattern I then treasure hunt for the most perfect fabric. I have many designs I haven’t made yet because I haven’t found the perfect fabric. Once I have a picture of what it should look like nothing else will do.

How do you get out of your creative ruts?
Sometimes I will watch gorgeous classic movies that take place in historical era’s, there are so many lovely details to inspire.


What does handmade mean to you?
Something made from the heart.

Apart from creating, what do you do?
Spend precious time with my family. Saturday is a good day for all of us but my oldest who doesn’t tap (but secretly thinks it’s cool) to put on our tap shoes. Gardening is fun too while my youngest finds ways to get muddy.


What celebrity would you most like to wear your items?
Shirley Temple, but she’s not a size 4t anymore!

If you had to use only one word to describe yourself, what would it be?
It’s just not possible. :)
