>Baby Bonnet Pattern Antique


bonnet page 2

Here is a $1.50 pattern for you to purchase if you like baby bonnets. I don’t care if you sell items from this just do not sell the pattern please just link people back to here thanks . Just thought it would be fun for people to use. Now it is in old terms and you do have to know about crochet and traveling from one level to another but with practice I think you can get it just fine. You will need to download it from Ravelry. Please let me know if that link works ( the buy now at the bottom of this post) I think it is my first time I am trying that maybe not can’t remember if I did that on the caplet or the orange shirt. The pattern is circa 1862 just a little after it as it has reference in the leaflet to the London exhibit ( i.e. world fair) The authoress of this pattern is also from London ( Cloudesley Square to be exact) so these are in European terms of crochet.

>A new face in the store..


yellow cloche

This is Ellie she is the new head model in the store I got her about 2 months ago and just didn’t have time to take photos of her with the move and all.

I love having her as my model it means less floating hats in just black space and it doesn’t have to be my face under any hats.

Which is something I am all for the less photos of me the better in my opinion I usually do not like my photo taken just sort of funny that way.


I should get some new family photos though oh well have to wait on that for now.

>Neck warmer with brooch



I have this habit of making things as if you couldn’t guess that by now. I had 1 skein of this really cool purple yarn.

neck warmer with brooch closure

After looking at it for a bit I figured I had just enough for a neck warmer can also be worn as a fuzzy collar.

warn as collar with brooch closure

While boxing some stuff up I noticed that I had some rayon vintage pink and blue seam binding not in its box which is already in a pod unit.

So humm what could I do with this. I know I will make a brooch closure for the neck warmer that can be worn on other items.It looked kind of plain just the seam binding. So I added the same ribbon I used on the 1912 hat I made a brooch and added it to the neck warmer. Still looked a little plain so I added a vintage fuzzy button to it too.

>Newborn varigated baby bonnet


left front

Most baby bonnets in my store look more like little girl bonnets. So I thought I would make one that looks a little more boyish but a girl could still wear. This is made from sock yarn. Took me three days to make. It is a little crochet and a little knit the back and face edging is crochet the brim is knit. It has a chin strap to keep it on baby’s head with a button closure. this is 70 % super wash wool and 23% polyamide and 7% PBT. This will be in store today. There is no pattern for this I made it up as I went along.

>1912 Hat


start of 1912 hat

I have been working on another hat pattern for the store. I call it the 1912 hat as it has that area feel to it. The neat thing about this hat is the way the pattern is written you can easily make the hat for a child or adult using any yarn with corresponding hook. This way you can use any yarn in your stash also it is drafted for one or two colors so you can make it match any outfit. The pattern should be both stores ( Etsy and Ravelry by the end of the week) it will be a pdf and available for $3.75 US Dollars. The hat is not done in these photos it still is getting a wide brim.

I think it would be a lovely Christmas or Easter bonnet. For either adults or little girls. I will show a finished hat in a few days I still have to finish the floppy brim. The pattern is done just not the item.
