After an unexpected positive response to my crochet minion kids hat, I was asked about providing a pattern. I thought about trying to draft up a fancy PDF file and post it for sale, but I am no crochet expert and besides, writing a formal pattern would take me f-o-r-e-v-e-r. I would be happier giving… Continue reading TUTORIAL – Crochet Minion Hat

I whipped up this project kinda out of nowhere and without overthinking it, for once. Without an exact pattern, I combined a basic baby shoe with an improvised lion face and tiny 'tail'.

Spent some time making a few of these little guys the other day. My mother in law and I shared some crafty time as she helped me complete the tiny headbands. I love that they are different from the usual flower headbands.
WIP (work in progress) I usually wait until a project is complete to blog about it so I thought I would start writing about some while in progress.
