Crazy Crochet

Crocheting is fun. It allows me to express myself in some really crazy ways. Take this hat for instance

Citrus striped flower hat

It's bright isn't it?

I really wasn’t sure about this hat when I was making it. I loved the bright citrus colours and the flowers and the butterfly but I thought :” No-one would have the nerve to wear this, surely?” Well, it was one of my first hats to sell on Folksy, what do I know? I’m really glad it found a home and is being worn by someone who really appreciates it.


Well in the spirit of that hat, I made this:

Yes , it is quite mad. But I like it.

Crochet Pixie Hats

Hand made Pixie Hats: A perfect gift for that special little someone

I’ve been making a few hats with infant boys in mind since I’ve had requests from people , following my Xmas Eve stall at the Brixton Makers market.  I’m still keeping to the fairyland theme but giving it a pixie spin. I don’t know about you, but I’m a little bit fed up of the emphasis on gendering things for kids. I’d rather make stuff that both boys or girls can wear; especially during those early years, surely? So I’ve come up with a cute striped pixie style hat adorned with cute appliques. So far I’ve done one in blue stripe and one in purple fluffy stripe. Both of them look adorable on; my granddaughter looks delightful in both just proving that cute is not gender specific!

The hats are modelled by one of my very strange soft sculptures , they look far better on real children! They fit ages 0-12 months ( depending on how big your head is of course, but they are stretchy.)


I’m going to be doing a whole range of colours and creature details, when I’m done they’ll be listed in my folksy shop and be available for purchase. They will cost £12 +pnp.

I’ll be back to show you the rest as I make them.

Ta ta for now!

Hats Off To My New Shop!

and for the tiniest of babies, there are single dainty cotton daisies.

When you're really small, you need something delicate.

So is it just hats?

Hats just the beginning. ( Groan).

There are shoes. And dolls and crocheted rubber ducks.

That’s for another time.

Hats the way to do it!

Okay, I’ll stop now.
