Crocheting Hats

Last week I got the bug to start crocheting again.  I wanted to create a hat I had made many years ago.  While searching the internet for the pattern I couldn't find the one I was looking for but did find an old pattern that I liked and crochet it in 2 evenings.

What struck me while I was googling vintage patterns was that there are so many being sold on-line.  I had no idea how popular they had become.  I immediately got out some old patterns that I had stuck in a file folder in the 1970's (I know -- I should throw out some of my junk) and started retyping the directions and scanning the pictures.  I've just listed three of them on my Etsy shop:

Here are the photos of the patterns that are now available at:  I will be adding more in a few days.

Funky Hearts for Valentine's Day

Here are a few more less traditional heart pendants of Polymer Clay.

 The heart pendants below were influenced by the beautiful work of Christi Friesen, polymer clay artist of California.

All the above hearts are available at my Etsy Shop - Fraidy Cat Creations.

Valentine's Day Hearts

Have been working on some polymer clay hearts for Valentine's Day.  The small heart pins/brooches with tiny floral appliques were a challenge to make as all the flowers are so tiny.  Some have Swarovski Crystals.

These can all be found at my Etsy shop, Fraidy Cat Creations.
