Gifting for Girls

I'm so excited about these little gifts I've made for all of Wyatt's girlfriends. I found the perfect flower pattern and used it to make baby headbands for Sage as well as pins for adults and these adorable headbands for big girls. I'm hoping that the girls love them as much as me.

Holiday Treats

We've been busy in the kitchen around here. I did some baking and candy making for gifting. Here's a little sneak peak.

Harper's Hood

No joke, this hat pattern is called Harper's Hood, available free on Ravelry. I couldn't not make it. I made a trip down to Portland a while back and got to visit this adorable yarn store. I found some super yummy yarn, perfect for this hat. It was a bit tricky for a semi-novice knitter like myself. But I got some help and winged the rest and it turned out perfect. Ok, perfect enough for me and my girl.

Fabric Flowers

Sage is really lacking in the hair department. I keep seeing these adorable hair clips that I've been waiting forever to buy for her but every time I seem to resist because, well, she has no hair to hold them with. And so got to thinking the other day that she needs something cute for that bald little head of hers besides the adorable hats she has. Something girly. Something that doesn't require hair to hold. A flower. A flower headband for my girl. Here are a few I came up with.

Birthday Skirt

A friend of Wyatt's just turned 4. I know for a fact that this little girl loves to wear skirts, so I whipped up this cute little skirt for her and made a matching top with the number 4 appliqued to the front. It turned out darling and I hope she likes it!

Christmas Stocking

Our newest family member certainly deserves her own mama-made stocking for Christmas. And so I made this adorable girly stocking for Miss Sage. It doesn't quite match the rest of ours but I think it turned out so cute and I love the little roses.
