So Cute - Baby Hats!!

I made these hats because I love all things baby.  I had no baby to give them to though - until a coworker became an Aunt! Now I have a baby to send cute little things to whenever the mood strikes.  Here are 2 hats I sent to her over Easter.



Too stinkin' cute!! The crocheted cap is from a pattern I found on Ravelry, the sewn hat is a McCalls 4478  and the shoes are from a free tutorial I found on this website.

I'll be attending all of these fabulous parties this week - you should come too!

Spring dollar store craft

I bought these white plastic frames at the Dollar Tree the other day.  They were too white and "plasticy" (is that a word?  I guess it is now!) for my taste so I sprayed them with black spray paint.  That ended very badly.  The paint bubbled up and looked horrible.  I tried to glue twine to one (the letter G - you can still see the remains of the glue and twine hair) which was equally disastrous.  I finally went and bought some of the Krylon Fusion spray paint made specifially for plastic.  I got one witha kind of a sandstone texture and a touch of sparkle.  It turned out well - but I will say that the paint was a bit of a pain to use.  The nozzle kept getting clogged and I had to keep taking it off.  I finally did get this all put together, and except for needing to get a new frame for the letter G, I like it!  I think I will change it out for every season - I never realized before that every season has 6 letters - that works out very nicely!  Without further ado, here is Spring:
