star blanket and hat

I made this hat and star blanket for my niece's 1st birthday. and they are soo cute!!! :) and I am super happy with the end look!!!                                  

modeled by my daughter 
this hat was super easy to make and worked up super fast! it's called the cluster V stitch hat and you can find it here, at bobwilson123-youtube channel.

the flower is not a part of the hat tutorial.
here is how I did that flower:
with a I/5.5mm hook
ch 5 join with the first ch. to make a ring
ch 2, 10 dc into ring. sl st into the top of ch 2.
ch 4, skip one st & sc into the next st. x5. sl st into sc ch 3, and make 4 dc's into the ch 4 space ch 3 and sl st into sc. repeat until flower is made.  (if this is you flower pattern please tell me so I can give you credit. I use so many diff flowers that I for get some times where I have seen it)

this star blanket was also super easy and fast to make! and it is super cute!! I have a few thing's to make for my cousin who is having a baby and I will be making this blanket again!!! and  you can find it here, on mikeyssmail- youtube channel.

if you make ether one of these I hope you love making them as much as I have!

crocheted "Bar Soap Wash Cloth Pouch"

I made this with my daughter in mind, she use's bar soap and I just wanted her to have some thing to put her soap into wash up with. this will fit the basic size bar of soap. this is also a great gift idea!!!

what you'll need:
4mm crochet hook
cotton yarn
bar of your fave soap!


round 1: 10 sc into 2nd ch from hook. sl st into 1sc

round 2(increase): 2sc into every st

round 3: ch1, 1sc into every st

round 4: ch2, 1 hdc into every st around

round 5 (last increase round): ch2, 1dc into the next st, *2dc into the next, 1dc into the next 2sts* repeat from*to*. around sl st into the top of dc.

round 6 : ch1, sc into every st around. sl st into top of 1st sc.

round 7: ch2, 1dc into every st around

for rounds 8-15 repeat rounds 6 & 7 ending with sc.

with a size 5.50mm hook make a chain long enough to weave in last round of dc. make sure when chain is weaved in both ends come out the same hole this makes it easier to pull tight and tie.
