Bumble bee hat and leg warmer photo prop

We are expecting a baby girl in October!

Grandma (Mom) has already started making cute photography prop outfits which I will make sure to share!

She just finished this precious bee hat and leg warmers!

I ordered the patterns from Beezy Mom’s Creations on Etsy who has lots to choose from at great prices!
I ordered the yarn from Joann fabric and used an online coupon code for an extra 20% off!
If you can crochet or know someone who can these are both affordable and adorable!
I look forward to sharing the rest with you and let me know if we can help with anything!

Crochet Box of Chocolates

Mom got this pattern/idea from http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/crochet-box-chocolates.

Supplies:
BOX
RED HEART® “Super Saver®”:
 4 Ounces 332 Ranch Red CA.
RED HEART® “Luster Sheen®”: 2 Ounces 1 White CB.

Crochet Hooks: 3.5mm [US E-4] and 3.75mm [US F-5].
Yarn needle; small amount of polyfil stuffing; two 8″ x 11″ cardboards.

CHOCOLATES
RED HEART® “Luster Sheen®”: 1 Ounce 360 Chocolate CA, 3/4 ounce 7 Vanilla CB; small amounts 615 Tealeaf CC, 332 Tan CD, 227 Buttercup CE, 235 Think Pink CF, and 915 Cherry Red CG.

Crochet Hook: 3.5mm [US E-4].
Yarn needle, polyfil stuffing, 20 white paper candy cups, 20 tiny pearls.

Size:
Box measures approximately 9″ across and 8″ from “V” to bottom point. Candies measure approximately 1 1/4″ across.

ROUND CHOCOLATES (Make 2 CA with CF flower and CC leaves; 1 CF with CB flower; 1 CA with CB chain st tic tac toe embroidery).

Gauge/Tension:
BOX
GAUGE: 16 sts = 4″; 16 rows = 3 1/2″ in sc with CA and larger hook. CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Use any size hook to obtain the gauge.

CHOCOLATES
GAUGE: 6 sts = 1″; 5 rows = 3/4″ in sc. CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Use any size hook to obtain the gauge.

 

The lace trim looks great but when I commented on it Mom said it was a “bugger” to do!

I love this idea, I asked Mom to make one for my son (1 year old) but he’d probably try and eat them since he does everything else!

Good luck and let us know how yours turns out.

Happy Valentine’s Day! 🙂
