Floppy Flowery Hat

I have revisited crocheting and I love it! I just finished Alaura's hat yesterday and was so proud of myself. Thanks to a big kick start from Karla I got inspired and picked up the hook again and I followed a pattern for the first time. Of course you know me, the queen of adaptation, I had to make a few changes, but I at least learned how to read a pattern. Woo hoo! Now Sammie and Tally are dying for there's to be done. Anabelle can't request one yet, but I may just have to make her the mini version :)

Daffodil Dresses

From my stockpile of fabric I had a bunch of this yellow, crinkly, embroidered flower fabric and being spring time I decided to sew. Really it was one of those 3rd trimester crazy ideas.

So I got one done and the other 2 cut out before Anabelle was born, and since I didn't get them finished, and in honor of having a row of duckling girls, I had to make another one for the babe.

All-in-all it was a good experience with no-pattern sewing. It wasn't exactly how I thought it'd be in my mind, but it was still worth it. I'd thought about making a tiered skirt for me, but that was going a little bit overboard on the matching, so I stopped :)
