When I came across a free crochet pattern for “Simple Child Slippers” at The Yarn Box, I knew instantly I would be making a few pairs of shoes for my nieces. HodgePodge Crochet did an excellent job writing this pattern. I found it to be very easy to follow and they are actually the first shoes I have ever enjoyed making. You will be seeing more of these made by me. My daughter Ella is already begging me for a pair and I have another niece who loves to dance!
When making these ballet sippers I used Lion Brand Tweed Stripes and also used smaller hooks than called for. The slippers with purple measure just over 7 inches long and were made with a 4.25 mm crochet hook. The pink ribbon ballet slippers were crocheted with a 3.5 mm crochet hook and measure 6.25 inches long.
Before finishing off the yarn on the shoes I chained 5 and slip stitches 2 stitches over to create a loop on the top of the heal. Wove in my ends and then added ribbon by weaving it around from heal, around the front, and back to the heal. I then took a small piece of ribbon, tied it into a bow and hot glued it onto the center of the ribbon on the front of the shoes.
Make sure you share your ballet slipper pictures with me on Facebook!
Recently I designed the Newborn Princess Hat. When taking the photo I took advantage of a nearby frog to add my logo into the picture. My cousin (who is the pregnant one) loves frogs and always has as far back as I can remember. Anyways, after taking the photo of the princess hat, I knew I had to do my best at a frog hat.
Hope you have a hoppin time with this free crochet pattern for a 0-3 month frog hat!

While crocheting the Turban for Miss Happy for my best online friend Andrea, I was wanting to come up with something to mail her son, Avery, as a gift. I know Avery loves cars and trucks and probably has every cool car and truck that is sold in stores and online. So I decided to make him this awesome little airplane! It didn’t take long before my daughter started crying for an airplane also, so I made her a pink one too! This is my first time crocheting Amigurumi and I must admit… I think I may start a new addiction! I never realized how fun and easy these would be to make! I hope you and Avery enjoy this free crochet pattern for a toy airplane as much as I and my daughter does.
While I was designing my last free ear warmer crochet pattern, Forever Tiffani, a friend of mine requested I make her an ear warmer also. She liked the simple but unique style of the Forever Tiffani but wasn’t too fond of the bulky knot at the top or the fact that she would have to fold the piece before putting it onto her head. So with her help, I present to you…… ***drum roll please***….. The Turban for Miss Happy! Miss Happy is perfect for everyone! It’s thick and warm but it’s not bulky! It’s so easy to make and it’s stylish and unique! The person wearing the ear warmer will NOT need to fold the item at all to get this folded look— Making this my favorite free crochet turban ear warmer pattern EVER!
