In my last post, I mentioned that I have every color of Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton yarn. It’s become a favorite of mine and I use it for a number of things.
I’m gradually telling the stories of past projects and I’m trying hard not to tell them all at once so just for now, this is one reason I bought a lot of colors (in addition to the fact that they were Add On items on Amazon aka super cheap!)
I am a student at Millersville University and I had a teacher and class that changed my life forever. The professor of the class is now my dear friend. By the end of the semester, I was regularly having lunch with her and her baby daughter one or two days a week. Sometimes just us and sometimes with one or two people from our class. I am enjoying summer but ya’ll just writing this story is making me ready to see her and her girl again. 💕
Anyway, I came across this DARLING pattern by Jess at Make and Do Crew. She’s the real deal, so fabulous guys. I loved this sweet headband pattern and I was trying to think of who I could make it for.
Then WHAM it hit me. I whipped it up in no time at all (less than 24 hours from when I started). I did decide to leave off a few flowers to keep it really minimal and simple. When we were out to lunch, I snuck it on the baby’s head when her mama slipped away to the ladies’ room. Nóra kept it on the whole lunchtime and it just looked so pretty. Marion, her mama, was so suprised and thought it was completely perfect. 😍
Not the best pictures but that little face completely melts me every time.
I’d love to start making and selling these on Etsy, but for now I’m too limited on time so it’s an eventual dream right now…. 😉
