Baby Gifts and a Jump on Christmas!

Well I missed WIP Wednesday this week... It was too late by the time I remembered. It's even too late right now for Friday, but I'm going to make do!

Last week at church, I found out that a girl in our congregation just had a baby girl! I wanted to whip up some quick gifts for her. I also used this opportunity to use up my scraps from the BFF Cowl Swap I'm doing! Here's what I came up with:

Crochet Baby Beanie & Baby Head Band

Best Bunny
I think they turned out really great! I couldn't be happier. Hopefully the new mom will love them too!

Next up is the first of three reindeer that I'm making for my aunt for Christmas. Between my sister, my cousin and I, we're making Santa's whole herd of reindeer! So we're each responsible for three. This one is the first one finished out of all of them! I made a few changes to the pattern, and they're all in my Ravelry notes (which are linked in the caption). However, they're not very organized yet since I have two more to make and I'm just going to put them all together. You can message me if you want specifics about my modifications!

Happy Reindeer

What did you guys make this week? Linking up with Tami's.

    1. Thanks! The hat is *super* easy! It only takes about 45 minutes to an hour to crochet (minus the flower--not that that took too long either).
