Brittni of PBJ*Boutique sent Zella this BEAUTIFUL set to model. I just love how comfy and practical this set is. I also LOVE how it can be worn casual or dressy.
I made a sweet Bow Tie Cloche to match. I found the pattern for the cloche HERE. I am going to have to make a lot of these to match my girls' fall wardrobe this year, and maybe a few for myself too. They really are adorable!

Jayne of Baby Grace Designs sent another fun set for Zella to model. I just loved The Cat in the Hat theme so much that I knew I had to make a hat to match!
I found the pattern to make it on Etsy by Desert Diamond Crochet. She has a lot of really adorable crochet patterns in her store that you can check out. I altered the pattern just a bit and added an extra row to each red and white stripe. I wanted it to be a bit tall like the original Cat in the Hat. I also used an H hook instead of a G hook that was requested, and instead of red heart yarn, I used Caron simply soft. I think it made it a bit sturdier and gave it more shape.

O Mr. Sun, Won't You Come Out To Play?
One of my lovely customers asked me if I could make her daughter a Mr. Sun halter top with matching hair clips. For those of you who do not know Mr. Sun, he is a character on the popular kids television show called Ni Hao Kai-lan. Well I couldn't turn down this cute custom idea. I just love the light blue color of this halter. Each ruffle is trimmed in a different color of the rainbow. And then there is Mr. Sun smiling so sweetly at the top of all of those pretty little ruffles. I couldn't help but smile once I sewed his little face on. Too cute for words!!
I also made her little red flower hair clips to match. Just like the flowers Kai-lan wears in her hair. This little birthday girl is going to be absolutely precious on her special day!
