Since I have a little girl most of my projects are fun girly things. However I have ventured into little boy hats. I have made two so far, one is for a friend who is having a baby boy so I made my first tiny newborn hat and the other is a camo had for my 3 year old nephew. Both of these I made with no pattern just made it up as I went along. I think they turned out pretty great.
My daughter was my hat model for the day :) Hopefully I didn't make it too small to fit her cousin.

My parents have a professional embroidery machine in their home. My dad has the intention of starting an embroidery business with it but it hasn't taken off yet. This last weekend, my dad, my sister, and I learned how to use the machine for appliques. It was quite fun. Here are a few of the projects we got finished.

So I was inspired by a hat I saw on rufflebutts.com. It was a cute little crocheted hat with two big flowers on it. They were asking $26 dollars for it and I thought, heck I have enough yarn I could just make a hat like that. So last night I set out to make yet another hat for my little girl. It is a good thing she likes wearing hats. I did the design myself, though I did get the pattern for the rolled flowers here. And if you ask me I think it turned out better than the one that inspired me.(You can see it here if you want)

After seeing some cute trees in a magazine made out of felt I decided I could do that and make a wreath instead. After cutting out 144 circles my poor pinking shears gave out and even after trying to sharpen them with the folded foil trick they won't cut my felt. So currently it is on hold until I can afford a really good pair of pinking shears that won't die on me not even half way through.
Here are my completed projects that I have been working on. I have one of my hat and scarf sets finished for my two nieces and I have finished the green dragon puppet for my nephew. The red dragon is for my daughter, actually I think it is more for my husband but he claims it is hers.
