Crochet Hat with Awesome Straps

I hadn't made many of these this winter, I have been busy with headbands and more headbands.  I recently met a lady that is a friend of a friend.  She was wanting a new hat to cover her sweet head that is now bald due to chemotherapy.  I couldn't resist making one of these for her!  It is so comfortable and being able to change out the straps makes it feel like you have options.  I can't imagine what she goes through during all of her treatments.  I was so thankful that I was able to make her day just a little bit better because it made my day a whole lot better.

I posted her hat on facebook and had a few others that kinda wanted one too.  If you are one of those people, you can order it here on the blog.  Once I get the order, it takes 2-3 days for me to get the hat and straps made up and out in the mail.  If you have any questions, you can always email me at mymadymichelleboutique@gmail.com.

My Mady Michelle International

I am feeling very International today!  This week I received two orders in my Etsy shop to be sent around the world.  AROUND THE WORLD!  It is a kind of a dorky/rad feeling to know that the items that I crochet WITH LOVE are in places I will most likely never go.

I made this sweet afghan with all of my extra yarn balls last year.  I want to make another!  I think my husband will leave me if I don't finish some of my other projects first.  Anyway, she is going to Austrailia.  Have fun down under my friend!
This is my best selling boy owl hat.  I made a newborn size for a sweet little one in Iceland.  We know it will go to good use.

I think I would feel like a total jerk to not mention how thankful I am  for this craft that I have become obsessed with.  I love to crochet and have the most patient family in the world! They put up with my mess and lack of being a functioning house mom.  I am blessed and so thankful to be able to support my hobby that brings me such joy.

Baby Girl Headband Options

It was just 10 years ago when Mady was a baby.  She required headbands and hats to convince the world that she was indeed a girl.  I wish so badly that I would have had these when she was little.  I love being able to use items for more than one option!

These headbands and flowers are basic but they are so fantastic BECAUSE this set has 20 different options for color combos.  The crochet headband is soft and doesn't have any glue or knots under the button.  The flowers slip on and off the buttons, so easy. 

For the month of February,  I am going to include and cute little crochet purse in my Etsy Shop  AND the fantastic price of only $20.  My sweet daughter helps me with these purses.  She does the main part and then I do the edge and the handle.  She is pretty talented for a 10 year old!  Anyway, everything fits inside just right.  This makes it the BEST gift ever.  You know that if you gave this at a baby shower, you would get the ooohs and aaahs that we all crave.  I pretty much bank on those for self esteem boosts.

I am also hoping to do a giveaway so you could WIN one of these.  Stay tuned for more info!

Sweet Bare Bottom Feet

Decorating babies is more fun than it should be.  Last year I did a Bare Bottom Sandal that wrapped around the toe and it was a hit.  This year, I am mixing it up a bit and leaving the toes alone.  These sandals wrap around the foot and the ankle and pretty much leave the cute button and flower to accent those yummy baby feet.  To put them on the foot, you grab all of the straps and slip the foot in between the straps and the top of the sandal.  It is a little easier to put these on :)

To add to the cuteness my friend Brittany suggested a headband.  Hello!  Duh!  This little sandal turned into a set that is a must have for this spring!

These are listed in My Mady Michelle on Etsy.  I will be doing a giveaway on Facebook so make sure to LIKE my shop if you want to win one.
