Crochet Double Strapped Baby Mary Janes

Last year I made a lamp hat for a cousin’s newborn baby girl.  Time flies and the baby girl has turned 1 year old.  I was thinking of making something for her and came across this cute pattern – Double Strapped Baby Mary Janes, which will be perfect for the little one who just started walking.  And I used the buttons that I bought online a while ago and this is how they look like:

Crochet BFF Charms

My daughter just turned 8 and I wanted to do something special but small for her.  She invited two best friends from her class for a (birthday) play date, and I did their nails using the Jamberry nail wraps that I bought from my friend.  I like them because they don’t chip like nail polish.  It’s a little bit pricey but I think it’s worthy.

So I decided to make 3 BFF charms for the 3 of them as part of the party favor.  I saw this bear pattern from All About Ami for a while, and finally decided to give it a try.  I put my daughter’s charm together with her present (when she was sleeping).

This is how they turn out (I wrote the 3 girls’ initial on the tummy to make each one unique):

DIY Halloween Costume

My 5-year old boy decided to be a magician for Halloween this year, so I was searching for some DIY ideas online.  I found a tutorial from A Craft a Day to make the cape, which is awesome!  Since I am a sewing novice, I had to seek help from my mother-in-law though. 🙂  She did the collar a bit different from the instruction, and it looks out very well.

Instead of sewing the hat, I crocheted one using the Halloween Top Hat pattern I found from Red Heart.

For the trick-or-treat bag, he’s using the crochet pumpkin bag for the first time that I made right after last year’s Halloween.

Then my 8-year girl last minute decided she doesn’t want to be Princess Anna (from Frozen) any more.  Instead, she would like to be a witch.  Fine, her supermom then had to search all over again for  witch costume ideas.  Then I found one on Pinterest – DIY No Sew Ribbon Tie Tutu.  Perfect!  Then I went to Michael’s to get the 4 different colors of Tulle to make the Tutu.

As for the hat, I found a post called How to crochet a witch hat for Halloween and used the same yarn that I used for the boy’s magician hat.

Last but not least, we got her a broom from the dollar store, and she’s using the same zombie bag I made for her a few years ago.  Hwww, mission accomplished!
