Trying new things

Isn't it fun to try new crafts or art forms? I always find it a challenge to try something new but i get determined to figure it out. This past month i decided to teach myslef crochet and tutu making.

First, i mad a tutu out of tulle for my daughter to be a bumble bee.

Then, I checked out library books on crochet and youtube for crochet videos.

I created a purse and matching hat first.

Then, Hubby wanted a hat so i used gray for the Buccanners football team(pewter). The hat was too wide and wound up looking more like a womens hat so i added a flower and now *I* have two hats! Hehe!

Next I tried Amigurumi (animals and toys) made with crochet. The pumpkin was cute but making circles and balls is not as easy as it looks!.

Finally, I tried the butterfly headband. It is a bit big for my younger daughter so i will probably shorten them in the future.

I have so many things i want to try so if you have a favorite crochet pattern, i would love to give it a try!
