What Mom Made

My Momma has offered up another fun round of treats for The Kid and I, so I thought I'd share. I get a crap ton of inspiration from the things my mom makes, and all the free patterns she finds as she tools around the Internet, so maybe you will too!

First up-the most adorable little crocheted basket full of face scrubbies!

Mom took the liberty of sewing two scrubbies together to make one scrubbie with a pocket for fingers. This makes them soooo much easier to hang onto in the shower!

You'll recognise these from my post yesterday. This fun and amazing Thor set is actually, technically, the Kid's.

 This also belongs to The Kid.

But that doesn't mean that I can't play with it too!

This is a groovy little headband that my odd shaped head totally loves because it is soft and smooshy, which means it actually conforms to my head, with the help of a couple of bobby pins to hold it in place.

Yes, I know my shirt and head band don't match. It's a Tuesday. What can I say?

I love the vintage feel of it!

Mom also makes these big crochet flowers that I just adore. She made me a brightly colored set which I then turned into hair clips.

The necklace I am wearing was made by me. You may recognise it from an earlier post, actually!

Yes, I actually do wear the stuff I make. Why else would I make it? 

If you have never crocheted before, because you think only granny square making grannies do it(I love granny squares AND grannies, for the record) there is no time like the present to start!  There are so many free patterns online with instructions to make so many cool things, you'll never run out of project ideas.

In fact, Mom was showing me one of her next projects a couple of days ago-a crocheted hat that looks like a plucked chicken, complete with drumsticks attached to the sides! Yes, of course I'll be talking her into making one for me, are you kidding?!?!?! Life is too short to not wear a plucked chicken hat!

And pictures will follow. I'm thinking of asking her to make it pink...

I'm trying really hard to talk the woman into opening an etsy shop, but so far, no shop. She has her reasons, but all I hear is, "blab blab blabbity blab."


Parents. I tell you.
