Sometimes it's all about the details, isn't it? Especially if like me, you take the easy way out and make a simple hat for new baby gift-giving.
It's no secret that I love to crochet hats, but a plain beanie for a baby is just too boring. So embellishing is FUN!
I used this pattern to create the rosette that I attached to a simple baby beanie that I made. Then I made a million more rosettes, just for fun. I have hot glued them to alligator clips to make simple hair embellishments for Elliott. They'd also make some cute headbands.
And just in case you're wondering, none of these rosettes are being worn by the new baby gal because she's still hanging out in the uterus (we're 5 days "over" so far). I joke to my husband that it must be like a 5 star resort in there, because neither of my gals has been in a hurry to come out. Whatever. All I know this time around is that I don't mind an "overdue" baby--they're a lot easier to manage while they're still nestled inside than they are when they come out. Right?! Let's just hope she's not growing too much...
