Crocheted Newborn Hat and Slippers

Every month a group of bloggers are challenged by C'mon Get Crafty to create a new craft or project from their own stash of goodies! I've decided to join up with this group. After years of
collecting craft and sewing supplies I figured it was about time to try to put them to good use.  So when my step-daughter told us she was pregnant I knew my yarn stash would come in handy. A crocheted newborn hat and slippers was my project of choice. I just didn't know what color to make them until she had her gender reveal party a couple of weeks ago.

A baby girl - so glad I had pink yarn left over from a project I had made for my daughter when she was in high school! I also had some white yarn for the flower as well as little pink rosettes (which were probably from when my daughter was a baby!).

Crochet supplies

For the hat I used this pattern using a v-stitch from the website Lacy Crochet. She has a lot of pretty patterns so be sure to check out her site!

Then I made the flower from this pattern from the See Jenn Do website. Here are her very easy to follow directions:
1. Ch 27
2. Skip first 4 ch, sc in 5th ch from hook, (ch2, skip 1 ch, sc) accross.
3. Turn piece, (sc, ch1, 3dc, ch1, sc) in each ch2 space accross, and also in ch4 space at the end.
4. Finish off, leaving a long tail, and threading tail through a needle.
5. Form flower by holding short beginning tail and turning the petals around.
6. Using the long tail, sew petals in place, beginning with outer 2 layers of petals, and finishing with a few stitches to hold all layers together.

 And finally the slippers were made from this pattern at the Loganberry Handmade website.

I finished the project by using a little hot glue to attach the pink rosettes to the slippers as well as the center of the flower. I can't wait to give these to my step-daughter for Christmas!
