Sailor Baby Booties - Free Crochet Pattern

One of my fondest memories as a child was when I would pull out a large suitcase from underneath my bed. Inside this suitcase was a mountain of the most amazing dress-ups (mainly handmade), which constantly fed my ever evolving imagination. There was princess dresses, a doctor's coat, scrubs and stethoscope, cowboy hats and of course a sailors outfit among many others.

Till this day I still enjoy dressing up for parties, and especially crocheting projects with a quirky theme, such as these tiny sailor booties!

If after crocheting these tiny shoes you're excited to crochet even more baby accessories, I'd suggest trying your hand at my Princess Charlotte baby booties or even my teddy bear baby booties pattern!

Wisteria Vine Scarf - Giveaway + Crochet Pattern

The colour purple has always been a favourite of mine, but unfortunately I haven't been able to find many clothes or accessories in said colour.
So the day when I first discovered this luscious yarn I just knew I had to get my creative juices flowing and create something cosy, unique and beautiful... After many hours of work (and quite a few late nights thrown in too) the Wisteria Vine scarf was born!
Want to crochet this fluffy scarf too? You're in luck as I've just added the pattern for this scarf to my Etsy Shop

Love pompoms as much as I do? Why not give this panda pompom hat a whirl, or even try crocheting my pompom cottontail scarf (which just so happens to be extra chunky)!

You can find the pattern HERE!
