Three Finished Projects

Yay! I finished some projects this week. :)

First of all, the dino hat and diaper cover for my work friend's baby...

I got the pattern for the main part here, but of course I'm me... *sigh* ...and I just COULDN'T make it exactly like that and had to tweak it to suit my fancy and cover up mistakes, lol!

So, I had a Pinspiration from this photo... and worked up something kind of like it for the dino plates, because I liked the rounder look...

...and then I attatched the plates on the hat too far back and had to make another little one for the front. If anyone would like the patterns I did for the plates, please let me know, and I'll write them down! :)

For the ties, I doubled lengths of matching yarn through the spaces between the last stitches at the bottoms of the ear flaps, braided them, and tied them off with overhand knots.

Second up, I finished the heart pillow I was working on for my cousin's wedding present! I have a ton of pictures, as I snapped them at almost all the stages as I worked on it, but I think it would be kind of overwhelming for this post right now, haha. So, if you want the step-by-step-ish pics (and/or the pattern I am almost satisfied with now, and just have to edit so it reads normally instead of with all my funny abbreviations, notations, and things in the wrong spots lol), again, please let me know! :D

(Guess where I found the pattern for the little one-round heart applique? Ya, it was Pinterest. Right here. Lol)

And lastly, I finished the head I was drawing. Used color pencil for most of it, but the pen I used for her eyelashes decided to be a brat, and now I really don't like how wonky and crooked her left (to your right) eye looks! :( Haha. The drawing actually looks better in the photograph than on the page, which is kind of cool, I guess. :D (But, it still looks nothing like the photo I used as a reference. Grr.)

Fall is in the air, so I'm excited to potentially have even a little more crafting time in the coming weeks! Do you get more time to craft when the weather gets colder, or are you booked pretty much straight through the year?


  1. Super again! Those crochet projects turned out wonderful. And you are very creative to adapt them to what you like. IF I knew how to crochet, I'd be asking for your instructions.
    Your drawing is very well done, too. Lovely hair textures.
    As to your question about art time in the fall, I am wondering that myself. Potentially, yes, but that's what I thought about summer, and it was a No.
    Anybody else? If you are teaching young ones, we know the answer. School has probably started.

  2. I'd love to see the hat and diaper cover on a baby model. :-)

    I don't have time for ANYTHING! Arg. Plan, shop, bake, decorate, deliver. I am looking forward to some time to do something else.

  3. I don't think that eye is very bothersome. I look more at the fabulous hair, anyway! Cute baby stuff, too! Love it.

    My art time is waning. I have ideas! But the garden is still going and school starting next week... I'm trying to be less of a lazy home educator this year and actually teach my kids stuff, sooo... :-D

  4. Tweaking is great. Your crochet projects are so fun to look at. Do we get to see a picture of the dino-baby?
