Baby Earflap Hat and Booties

Hi everyone!

I know it has been a while since the last post... That's because of the holiday! When the family are around I just don't feel like being on the computer, you know! Anywho, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2014! It has been a great year so far. Do you have any resolutions for this year? My resolution is to do what I want hahahaha.

So last Saturday I went to my sister-in-law's baby shower. I had a lot of time so I decided to make something for the baby. After browsing the internet for free patterns, I found 2 things that seemed easy to make and looked so cute!


You can crochet both of them in a day! I actually did it in 2 days because for some reason I kept making mistakes while I crocheted the booties. Maybe it wasn't a crocheting day for me.

Alli from Alli crafts shared this free earflap hat pattern on her blog. She has various sizes available, from newborn to toddler size! I made it with a soft acrylic yarn that I have at home. Fortunately, my sister-in-law is expecting a boy and the yarn I have is blue! After making the earflap hat, I thought I can add a little pom pom on the top of the hat. The pom pom was easy to make, I used this How to Make Mini Yarn Pom Poms Video Tutorial. I love how something so simple can make it look so much cuter!

I used the same yarn for the baby booties. The crochet wrap-around button infant boots pattern is shared by Ashlee of I'm Topsy Turvy. I find the pattern easy to follow, which makes me feel embarrassed that I kept making mistakes while making it. I don't know why, maybe I was just tired. Anyway, I think the buttons on the booties are a big part of why they look so adorable!


My sister-in-law and her friends said that they look really cute! I'm glad they like it. I love making handmade gifts!


  1. Beautiful. I wish I could crochet >.<

  2. Thank you so much! You know, I think learning how to crochet isn't that hard! I actually just learned the basics from a twelve-year-old girl and learned the rest from book and youtube. Maybe you can borrow a book from the library. Or, Lion Brand yarn has great crochet instructions and it includes videos too!

  3. I've tried so many times, it just doesn't stick in my brain. I'm lucky my mum can do it though.


Hi there! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment, I really appreciate it!
