I can’t believe this school year is already coming to an end. I remember the beginning of the year; the fear of letting my child go. I was so anxious to see my 5-year-old start her first year of school. Now with only 14 days left of Kindergarten, the anxious feelings have turned into excitement and my daughter is almost a first grader.
Headbands are all the rage right now for my 5-year-old daughter. She loves to coordinate her headbands with her different outfits and wears one almost every single day. This past weekend we visited our local zoo. A few days beforehand my daughter mentioned that she wished that she had some sort of animal headband. A light bulb went off for me (a crocheted one, of course) and I knew I could whip something together for her.

I have a beautiful friend who is growing a sweet little baby girl right now as we speak. A while ago she requested an adorable newsboy cap inspired hat along with some matching booties. I wrote the pattern down while I worked up the cap so that I could share them with you all for free. Armed Forces day is coming up this Saturday, so it is perfect timing to share this camo cap with you all.

After a recent visit with my grandmother I spent some time contemplating a cute crocheted gift that she would enjoy. She is a big bird lover so I finally decided on creating an adorable baby blue jay. I worked up this little guy within just a few hours (all while chasing around my 1-year-old) so it shouldn’t take you too much time. You can change up your color choices to create a different kind of bird if desired. This pattern allows for a lot of creativity. Enjoy!
I woke up this morning not entirely sure what I would crochet today to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. It wasn’t until I dressed my son in his taco poncho (made by my brilliantsister) that the inspiration hit me. I would crochet a taco!
