I love this verse from Psalm. Children are such a blessing and so precious, each one is different and unique. My 2 boys are a gift and every day I thank God for them. I praise Him for giving me the ability to create baby stuff and to be a stay-at-home mom to my 2 boys. In the midst of the chaos, there is still peace that comes from Him and from my crochet.
I didn't learn crochet until I was in my 20's, but began sewing in college. I worked in the costume shop, although I preferred the stage:-), but really enjoyed costume design and prop making. I think the first thing I learned to make was a 19th century corset!
I originally learned the basics of crochet from a friend at work. She was EXTREMELY patient with me. She would sit and teach me one stitch each time we met. Then I would work on that stitch until I perfected it. I learned more and more stitches each time. Also, I am left-handed and she is right-handed so it wasn't easy but I seemed to catch on pretty quickly. After I learned the basics, I began watching you tube videos. I crocheted everything you can image! Click on my Learn To Crochet tab to find out more.
Happy Baby Crochet began as Happy Baby Shoes in 2008 when I began crocheting baby shoes and hats for my first son. I absolutely LOVE soft sole baby shoes but while seeking out the perfect soft shoe for my son, I ended up making my own! I wanted to make something unique and found some super cute crochet patterns online.
I gradually began making newborn hats and shoes and doing customs. Then when baby #2 came along, I had to slow down my crochet. He is now 5 years old, so I am happily back to crochet and making baby stuff! I want to share what I am creating, posting free patterns, talking crochet, and just making babies look even more adorable than they already are!
