Elephant baby shirts

Some things I made for my new nephew :)
Both onesies were hand tie-dyed, and I made the elephant applique patch on the second shirt with fabric scraps.  The elephant on the first shirt was stamped in ink with one of my new Indian stamps :) 

The olive green brimmed hat was made using this pattern-

I just received some wooden handmade stamps as a gift from India.  I'm super excited to use them.

Crocheted Fingerless Gloves

Some of my fingerless gloves will be for sale at Maiden Wisconsin, a gift shop in Sparta, WI (124 N. Water St.) They sell "made-in-Wisconsin products such as maple syrup, cheese, sausage, honey, coffee, T-shirts, jewelry and artwork made by area artists."
I'll have the pattern available for these soon!

Granny square blanket

Sad to see this blanket go the other day.  I may make more like this in the near future, it's a great way to use up scraps of yarn :)  Made with simple double crochet stitch granny squares, sewn together by hand and bordered with a few rows of half double crochet stitches.

Crocheted patchwork baby blankets!

I designed the pattern for this patchwork granny-square blanket, inspired by [THIS] pattern. Very tedious (all squares were blocked!), but a good project to work on while taking care of a new baby :)  Made with acrylic yarn.
