Orange and Black Infant Baby Pumpkin Cocoon with Hat

I love making these crochet baby cocoons. I make them in the designs and colors of my choosing. They make great photo props, Halloween costumes, and also to keep baby warm at night. The cocoon is like a warm, and safe sleeping bag. This one is a Halloween pumpkin. The hat is the carved face of the pumpkin. So adorable. This will fit a newborn infant, boy or girl, and up to one month old. Check it out in my Etsy store.

For All You Spider Lovers Hot Pink and Neon Blue 3D Spiders

I know there are people who love spiders. I can't say I love them. I leave them alone, as long as they are not in the house. I was bitten by a Brown Recluse two years ago, so I have a respect for them that others may not. One day, while in my local Dollar Tree, I found these awesome spider molds. Of course I bought them. I made these lovely hot pink, and neon blue resin spiders. They both have had a hole drilled, and a wire wrapped bail. These could be worn as a pendant, hung on a Halloween or Christmas tree, or a keyring applied for a super cool keychain. Check them out in my Etsy store. I only have the two shown, so you will have one of a kind pieces.

Learn to Crochet Single Crochet is First

My daughter is ten, and she thinks she wants to learn to crochet. I tried a couple times to teach her the single crochet chain, and it didn't go well. It is easy for me to do, because I have been doing it forever. Not so easy to teach it to someone else. So, I am gathering some how to crochet videos for anyone who wants to learn to crochet. I find watching someone else do it more helpful than reading or looking at pictures in a book or post. Watch for new videos. I will try to share a new tutorial, for crocheting at least once a week, or every other week.

White Lace Infant Baby Girl Angel Cocoon Halloween Photo Prop With Pink Wings

The wings are sold separately from the cocoon and headband. Some people might not want the wings. The wings do not attach, they just lie behind baby. The cocoon is a crochet v stitch that looks like lace, and is my favorite stitch. It is white for a newborn baby girl to three months. The headband has tiny pink pearls at the tips. These make awesome sleepers to keep baby warm when sleeping, photo props, Halloween for baby's first Halloween and this one I think would be beautiful for a Christening. It is available in my Etsy store now.

Team Support and Promote Red Theme Blogpost

Only two participants again this month.  Running a blog doesn't take a lot of time, and it is a wonderful way to share your knowledge and creativity.  I am a leader for Team Support and Promote on Etsy, and this is the third team blog post.  The theme was fire hot, because it has been so stinking hot.  Below you will see the two items shared, and links to visit each store.
