Giveaway Item - Flower Booties!

I had that fun giveaway for reaching 500 fans and now have enough progress on the custom orders to start making the prizes for the winners now and then. The first winner choose baby booties in pink and white, so I thought it would be fun to try a new idea I had . . .
What do you think of the flowers as toe tops? I think I like them.
Otherwise, they're just like the booties I've been making, with the addition of and extra touch of color around the bottom to tie the flower in.

Etsy Baby Gifts - Lilikin's

If you've been holding out on buying or selling on Etsy, wondering if it would be a good experience, let me tell you, for the most part, everyone on Etsy is sweet, kind, and a pleasure to deal with! Case in point - the Etsy welcome for Big Mac! I will be posting his gifts as I get around to it and as the summer heat permits! (Lots of hats for Big Mac!)
Not only was I a participant in the Etsy Baby Shower, but some sellers spontaneously decided to welcome Big Mac by sending sweet handmade lovlies.
My sweet friend at Lilikin's http://lilikin14.etsy.com sent two of these SUPER ADORABLE diaper burp cloths for him!
The diaper makes the burp cloth extra soft and absorbant, and, as you can see, its big enough for the biggest baby oopsies!

I always love going to her shop to see what's new . . . she picks the most adorable fabrics in the world! In her shop, you'll find quilts, lovies, recieving blankets, burp cloths, and drawstring bags. Pay a visit! She also has a facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/Lililikins.Baby.Blankets.and.Quilts?ref=ts

A Custom Order - Dress, Hats, Hair Accessories!

Jennifer of Doodle Bug Boutique (you can find her store on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/pages/Doodle-Bug-boutique-and-more/122572481103173 ) Fell in love with a hat and a dress and combined them to have me make this fun toddler dress!
Here's the hat she ordered to match.
And these are the matching hair elastics on toddler-sized elastics.

A toddler size rose head band to match that dress!
And boys deserve great crochet too! A hat for her son.
Thanks so much Jennifer! I hope you AND the kids love it!

We have winners!

And they are . . .
Thanks everyone for celebrating with me! <3

Toddler Dress - Custom Order for Jennifer!

To be perfectly honest, this dress made me a little nervous, but the customer really LOVED this verigated yarn, so I made it for her and it turned out really cute!
This toddler dress is a 2T and features button straps (three button holes make them adjustable), a large rose embellishment, wide waistband, and fan stitch-edged skirt.

Here's the lace-up back (which also allows for flexible sizing).

Thanks, Jennifer for pushing my color sense in such a fun direction!
