Red, White & Blue Strappy Summer Sandals

Once again, my love of baby shoes inspired me! I wanted to make more summer sandals, and decided that something festive would be fun. So.....here are my Red, White & Blue Strappy Summer Sandals!

These adorable shoes would be perfect for a July 4 barbecue, a boat ride, a firework show, or a trip to the beach! The flower detail is a puff stitch flower. These are even cuter in person, if that's possible! :) 

These are available for sale in my Etsy Shop. You can choose which color combination you prefer:

* Blue Soles, Red Sparkle Tops, With White Flower
* Red Sparkle soles, Blue Tops, With White Flower
* Blue soles, White Tops, With Red Sparkle Flower

So cute & patriotic! :)

New Season, New Items!

I never know what to do with myself when the weather gets warmer. I am not swamped with orders since winter hats are not very popular in the Spring. :) I was thinking of items I could make that were Spring friendly. Crocheted items are very popular in the world of photography right now. I love all the newborn portraits where they're wearing a crocheted hat, headband, diaper cover, etc. I wish I would have been a crocheter when my kids were babies! They are 4 and 2 now, so they still rock my winter hats, but that's about it.

I have a few new items in my Etsy shop:

These Summer Strappy Sandals were something I made up on the spot while watching TLC one afternoon. :) I have mentioned on my blog many times before that I am a huge fan of baby shoes. These are super cute, and fairly priced. Baby shoes are expensive and they can't wear them for long. This is why I think my crocheted baby shoes are a great option!

Diaper Covers with matching hats or headbands are also extremely popular right now. I think these can work well in any season if they are used as photo props. This set is a Mickey Mouse inspired diaper cover with matching hat.

These Pretty Petals Mary Janes are another creation of mine that I made up while watching tv. I found the little pink felt flowers ages ago at Michaels and never found a cute way to use them....until now! I added a little piece of white tulle and voila! A beautiful pair of Mary Janes! These would look super cute with a matching headband for a photo session.

Here is a different version in Black with a light Pink bow that sparkles. These are also available in my Etsy Shop!

I always accept special orders, so be sure to check out my shop and message me if there is something you want but don't see! I can make character hats, diaper covers, headbands, pretty much anything!

Special Order: Kitty Hat

I had a customer ask me to make a Gray kitty hat, and this is what I came up with:

This hat is made with Acrylic yarn in a Charcoal Gray, with lime green & black eyes, a Pink nose, and White whiskers. It was even cuter in person! I love special orders because I get the challenge of creating something unique and fun. :) 

This hat is for sale in my Etsy Shop.
