Accessories

Sources for all the photos shared can be found HERE. Putting together these composites has become a new passion of mine. Why share just 1 thing when I can share several… or in this case 20! I didn’t plan on sharing 20 hair accessories. For some reason I usually like toRead More →

Last week the girls’ dance studio ran a coolest bun contest. We saw some truly crazy buns that looked like cupcakes, birds’ nests, and monster faces. Then there were some really pretty designs with fancy braids, hair twirled into flowers, and such. Every day before dance, the girls had meRead More →

  A few years ago I wrote a post called The Song of a Scarf in which I showed how I spun, dyed, and knit a scarf from beginning to end. It included a pattern for a simple bias scarf. That Christmas, I made a variation of that scarf asRead More →

My girls and I are loving these super easy to make Stretchy Bandana styled Headbands. They are perfect for playing outside in the summer. They keep your hair out of your face and the sun off the top of your head. They take just a bit of fabric and aboutRead More →

I need a new bag. I tend to wear my bags until they beg to be retired, and are allowed to sit on the shelf with my other retired bags, where I imagine they talk about the good old days, share battle scars and wallow in the peace and quietRead More →

A couple of weeks ago I shared a sweater and hat I knitted for the Little Lady. (Leaving Thursday for a week long visit 🙂 I wanted a little embellishment for the hat, and I made a flower using the material that I will be using to make her 2 pairs of reversible pants. Although I sewed the flower directly on her hat, you couldRead More →

Even if you possess the most rudimentary sewing skills, this project will be a breeze for you. Just in time for the holidays, this is perhaps the simplest apron you’ll ever make! Let the kids wear them for cookie making or wrap them up as gifts for all the weeRead More →

Have you been working on your knit blocks for your Block-Work hat? My kids are going to be completing the ones that they have been working on for the last couple weeks, this week in class. I’ve updated the pattern below to include all the finishing directions. I designed thisRead More →

Drew, Meghan and the Little Lady are still visiting and our days have been busy, busy, busy. We’ve had lots of at home snuggle time, but we’ve also had many day trips. All of this has given me time to do some “just for fun” knitting. Luckily, Meghan is aRead More →

In a blink of an eye, your little fairies can be wearing flowers in their hair. Although these elastic headbands hold just 1 flower, using the same pattern you could easily fill the crown with a bouquet of blooms! Using a purchased elastic headband, scraps of felt, and a few glass seed beads, your wee onesRead More →

My mom has this thing for scarves and shawls. Once the temperature dips below 70 degrees (not kidding) she starts layering them on. She can be seen wearing 2 or 3 at a time… in the house. Mocking aside… for Christmas a couple years ago I bought her a beautiful,Read More →

Here are the Pup Birthday Bandannas promised earlier in the week. BUT these aren’t just for pups. A bandanna is a bandanna whether wrapped around your doggie’s neck or for keeping the hair out your eyes! Truly, the hardest part of making this bandanna is deciding on the size. Here isRead More →

  On the 23rd of December I finished up the last of my Christmas knitting and wanted something super simple to work on while visiting with family. This little shawl is what I made over those festive days. I followed the simple pattern Traditional Icelandic Three Cornered Shawl available from Ragga GoesRead More →

This is a project that started this summer when I wanted to make my SIL a cute knit hat for their due-soon baby. I made hers, which turned out adorable, and of course Pixie wanted one. So I sized up the pattern and made a matching one for her in theRead More →
