Crochet Owl hat tutorial #1













 I have a fun tutorial for all you crocheters ( is that a word?) out there. I have seen owl hats like these and thought they were pretty cute. So I made two of them for my little girls.  This was my first time making up my own crochet pattern. So I apologize in advance if it doesn't make sense, or if it isn't the "proper" way to crochet.   I will post another tutorial for the other hat, tomorrow. It is still an owl hat, but a little bit different than this one.  I think it is even cuter.  Don't forget to enter our give away for the cute Halloween decoration!

Owl Hat Pattern
I used a size K hook with a worsted weight yarn. This hat easily fit both my two year old and my 5 year old.

Little girl Hairstyle tutorial #7 Knot hair do

This is one of my favorite hair styles I have done on C so far.  I just love all the different textures, with the braids,  and the knots, and the poofy ponytail in the back.  Don't worry I know it looks complicated, but if you follow the steps you will see it is really easy!
Part the hair across the front of the head, like in the picture to the left. Then dutch braid, the hair down to the ear.
then make a part from the tip of the left ear to the tip of the right ear  and make 5 pony tails with the remaining hair on top of head up to the part you just made. Tuck the tail of the dutch braid into your first pony tail.
Tie each ponytail into a knot. Demonstrated in the picture on the left. Once all the ponytails have been tied into knots. take the tails, and pull them into a single ponytail at the back of the head.

Backcomb the ponytail Place bobby pins underneath the  ponytail to make it stand up a little.



Roll the remaining hair up to meet the ponytail and secure with bobby pins. ( …

hairstyle# 11 A Simply cute toddler hairstyle

This style is simple, and easy. Perfect for those little toddlers, who wont hold still long. Plus it gets the hair out of their eyes, which is always a plus. The great thing is this style is for everyone! I have done my hair like this as well. It is so quick, but it looks super nice.
Part hair on the side of head.

Braid from forehead towards the back of head and secure. I use elastic bands in my girls hair, and bobby pins in my own.

Curl the rest of hair with a curling iron.

Finish with a cute bow.

Gosh doesn't she have the CUTEST face ever? I LOVE that little smile so much!

Cute easy skirt tutorial!

Is it just my girls, that really LOVE skirts? Most days my two year old, C. E , refuses to wear anything that isn't either a skirt or a dress. Lucky for her I am constantly making skirts and dresses. :) I haven't even purchased her any pants for a year. ( well I did purchase one pair, but it had a skirt attached so it doesn't count.) Each day after I get C. E dressed, ( in either a skirt or a dress) she always says "I wear dress lite (like) a pincess (princess)."  It always makes me giggle a little. So this is my latest skirt. It is inspired by that pre shirred fabric you can get at any fabric store. they didn't have any made from corduroy  though, so I decided to make my own. If you can sew a straight line, then you can make this skirt! It is the easiest skirt I have ever made, and I have made A LOT of skirts,  It is made with grey corduroy, so it will hold up well, and the interchangeable sash will ensure it will go with anything.  C loves wearing this skir…
