I didn't know how to play with yarn when I had babies.
So my kids didn't have cute little hats with big flowers.
Isn't that sad?
I'm pretty sure The Boy wouldn't have appreciated it anyway.
That sweet little hat is from this tutorial at Aesthetic Nest, and seriously y'all, the pattern is so quick and easy, I literally made this in less than two hours. If you crochet, go make this one and then find yourself a baby and spare that poor child of being left to live her whole life without a big flowered cap.
If you are hungry, you should try these watermelon cookies, Meredith baked up. I think I am going to assist The Girl in making a batch.
If you need a gift bag, but don't want to fork out the $$$, click here. All you need is some ribbon, glue and a newspaper.
I'm gonna go get my crafty (back) on in my newly organized office. Remember my crazy yarn mess? Well, The Mister bought me more yarn today (he is the most generous enabler I know...oh, and also, he's crazy handsome when he's helping me pick out just the right colors in the yarn isle...but I digress) so I felt motivated to clean up...so I can make more baby hats in clean-office peace.
What colors did I get? Glad you asked....
I got black, chocolate brown, cherry red, robins egg blue, blush (as in pink), a buttery light brown, and Kellyie green.
