Halloween Longies


I've been making these for Mimie for a few weeks now, amongst other things. I can usually whip a pair of these up in a few days tops but I've been making other stuff aswell, which I should hopefully be finished soon, so they took me a bit longer this time around. I made them to match with a halloween top I bought for Leyla last year, she was in age 3-6month clothes at 9months last halloween :P

Baby earflap hat


I've made Mimie a little crochet earflap hat. It's sooo cute, and they're so easy to make. Just make a ring, then keep increasing stitches until you get the hat as wide as you need it to be, then do as many rows as you need for it to be the length. I didn't use a pattern, I just kept trying it on my little girl but will write my ''pattern'' anyways, for future reference :) This hat is size 0-3months.
