Expressions of Fall Using Yarn

I was browsing online this morning for a few fun craft ideas to do for fall. I enjoy craft time with my girls so I was also looking not only for crafts to do on my own but also some to do with them as well.
The first autumn craft idea I found was this adorable yarn leaf mobile made by Jessica over on Two Shades of Pink.

I just fell in love with it's simplicity and how easy and fun this craft would be with the kiddos. And what a great idea to use up all of those extra scraps of yarn lying around.
The next idea I found also from Jessica of Two Shades of Pink uses the same concept of wrapping yarn but instead of wrapping to make leaves, you wrap pumpkins and gourds.

This yarn wrapped pumpkins and gourds craft might be a bit more advanced for children to do but I am sure they would be more than willing to help out.
This last autumn craft find was made by Bobbi over on Bobbi's Art.

I love this autumn garland. She even posted the pattern for those cute little maple leaves that you can find HERE. I really want to make this and hang it from my hutch this season.

Just in Time For Fall!

Tomorrow is the first day of fall! I just love EVERYTHING about fall. Hay rides, pumpkin pie, beautifully colored sunset leaves, and that wonderful autumn aroma that fills the air!

I just finished this adorable custom pumpkin drawstring purse for a beloved customer of mine. It turned out so cute.

I love it so much I added it to my Etsy store. You can view it HERE.
I think my favorite part of the purse is the leaf and the curly vine.

I wonder what special treasures a little princess would put inside?....a pretty leaf, maybe a pine cone, or maybe a few bracelets and necklaces.

Zoo Inspired Hats

Happy Labor Day Everyone! Our Labor Day so far has been a relaxing one. The girls slept in until 10 in the morning so I got a little crochet time in and finished my last zoo inspired crochet hat for a customer of mine. Her son is celebrating his first birthday party in the next couple of weeks and is having his birthday pictures done in his zoo animal inspired nursery. She sent me pictures of the animals painted on his walls so I made the hats to match accordingly.

The first one I made is this sweet giraffe hat.

The monkey hat I think is my favorite. Just look at his cute little smile.

The last one is a lion. His mane was a challenge. I didn't want to hook yarn strands all the way around but instead make it have a bushy like appearance that was standing straight up all the way around. I think this design worked out the best.

I can't wait to see his first birthday pictures. I know they are going to be absolutely precious!
