|Chunky Fuzzy Bear & Booties|
My other obsession, lately, has been making baby things for my Etsy store. I have found that hats and booties are so much fun to make (now that I know how to size hats appropriately)! I have always enjoyed it, but lately, I have been designing quite a bit of my own stuff, as well as, purchasing some new patterns and trying them out. The sock monkey hat is a pattern that I bought from Sandy's Cape Cod Designs on Etsy. The sock monkey booties are something I came up after I learned how to make booties in a consistent size. (I've had some challenges!!) I came up with the Zen Baby sets on the bottom of the post after making a basic pair of booties that "just needed something". So, I made a flower that turned out to be too big for the toes, so it went on the side. Then I thought "how cute would that be to make a matching hat?!?" So the hat was born and needed to have a matching flower. Then I looked at the trim I put on the hat and thought "omg...that would just tie the whole thing together if I put the trim on the booties too!"......
If you ever wondered what my "methods" were for designing....there ya go. It's as scientific as a bunch of random, scattered thoughts all landing in the same place at the same time. :)
