5 Works in Progress (My show, The Craft Table, is now on YouTube!)

Hello Creatives,

Thank you so much for joining me! Easter is right around the corner and you need some ideas on what to make or gift. Be inspired, watch The Craft Table and unleash the Creative within!

 

Project #1 – Bunny Earflap Hat

My fist project that I now finished is the Bunny Beanie by Heart Hook and Home. Ashlea gives you a boy and girl version, but I made up my own! Using yellow yarn for the trim and bow, I make this sweet hat pop! Easter ain’t ready for this!

I also added earflaps and tassels in white. Love earflaps, how about you? I only had scraps of the yellow and not enough for a tall bow, so I just worked with what I had. The bow looked strange and long, so I folded the bow in and sewed it in place. I love how it came out! I call it, The Double Bow!

Buy this hat on ETSY!

Pin this hat!

Project #2 – Scallywag Sweater

The next project is an original design I am working on. I wrote down a few rows and then my son woke up from nap, so I continued crocheting it without writing down the pattern.

I really do like the way the first version came out, but that’s what it is. The first version. I want to make the stripes wider, remove the lyme and maybe embroider with lyme at the end. I would move the joining seam from the front to the back. It looks good and fits my son. More of the pattern to come!
