Baby shower projects and crochet baby cocoon

I've been really lacking on the posts lately, but I've been busy! I had my baby shower last Saturday and I was working on projects for that. I made around 100 truffles as party favors, along with Sculpy peapod magnets! I also made a couple of sunflower arrangements, but I don't think we got pictures of them. Oops.

If you want to see pictures of the shower, my Dad has photos on his Flickr, not sure if you need to "friend" him or anything.

I made S'mores Truffles, which were definitely my favorite...they were so rich!

And here is an assembly line for the rest of the truffles, Lime Coconut, Mint Oreo and Strawberry Lemon Cake Balls.

Here are some of the Sculpy Pea Pod magnets...

It was so much fun! I feel very fortunate :)

A friend of ours is also having a baby girl (due today! Or yesterday, I forget hehe) so I wanted to make her one of those crochet papoose/cocoons...and here is what I came up with. It is cloudy outside so I couldn't get a great picture...hopefully I can get a better one later. EDIT: Here is a better one:

I don't have a baby yet to model, but here is a teddy bear.

It measures 17 1/2 inches long, and 11 1/2 inches wide. It super warm and fuzzy and was made with two strands of yarn. I'm also going to make a little felt cupcake applique and embroider her name on it...I have to finish it today so I can mail it out tomorrow!

I wrote up the pattern and am putting it up in my Etsy shop today if anyone is interested :)

Cupcake Hat Adult Sized

Here is another cupcake hat custom order I did...with little heart sprinkles! I love this color pink looks like strawberry ice cream :)

I'm working on another shrug just to make sure the pattern adds up in all sizes, then I'll post pictures. I've also got a Spiderman beanie in the works, along with a little amigurumi beer. Sheesh I hate when I have to many projects going at once lol!

I think for Valentine's day we are going to see Friday the 13th (yuck) but Craig really wants to see it. I also was going to make Rachel Ray's Heart and Sole recipe for looks easy and Craig loves artichokes. I don't really want to go out to dinner that night since usually things are packed, but we'll see.

Cupcake Hat - Glow in the dark!

I've been a little lack with posts, I know...but I've been busy filling orders and finishing up baby shower things! I also have finished a shrug pattern, but I just need to check to make sure all the stitches add up in the other sizes.

This cupcake hat was requested to have fluffy white frosting, a minty green base, button sprinkles and a cherry. She said it was going to be worn at raves....which made me remember the glow in the dark yarn I bought during Halloween!

I completely forgot to take a picture of it glowing in the dark before I sent it off though, I was in a hurry to mail it asap. I know these pictures aren't the greatest, but it's been raining so it was hard to get a nice clear shot.
