Pumpkin Spice!

Pumpkin spice is my favorite thing this time of the year. So every year I have to find a nice, soft yarn in some kind of orange color that resembles pumpkin or pumpkin spice.

This pom pom hat was inspired by my girls. They love pom poms on hats and I don’t make enough pom pom accessories, just to be honest.

I crocheted this hat using a wool blend of a chunky yarn and a size H crochet needle. It’s super fun to make! More about this hat here.

Handmade Wedding Decor

Many times I wish my whole crafts time could be dedicated to enjoy thinking about wedding decoration ideas, and making them! My niece is getting married and I was looking for a handmade gift for her big day! I came across some beautiful, simple, delicate ideas from one of the florists she may be hiring. This sparked many  wonderful thoughts for my shop and inspired me to start thinking about the gift for my niece. I would definitely love to make handmade decor for napkins. I started working on the napkin ring in the picture and combining it with matching crochet napkin embellishments. I am not so sure about using beige, so I will go to my craft shop and get some delicate metallic lace and try to work the crochet embellishment with it instead.

I will share with you in a future post how it all went. Her wedding is next year, so thankfully I do have time to perfect my idea and to get it done. 🙂
