Sweet, Chic, Unique Baby Booties – available in my Etsy Shop

Lately, I’ve been crocheting an awful lot of baby booties.

I started with a couple of different patterns that I bought at Etsy and for right now, I’ve settled on using one that I love to make some super sweet, chic, and totally unique baby booties that I’ll be selling (with the pattern designer’s permission) in my own Etsy shop.

I like to call them my Kicky Boots.

The pattern I’m using was inspired by a pattern I bought from the CrochetCollectionsCo shop.  Here’s a bootie I made using that pattern.

You can see their original pattern, and buy a copy for yourself using my affiliate link  HERE.

I’ve also been changing things up a bit while using that pattern as a jumping off point. Here’s an example of what I’ve been creating with the pattern.

And here’s another example.

I’ve made a bunch of others too that I’ll share once I finish weaving in all of the ends that this style creates.

So far, I’ve gotten good feedback on these.  I’m shipping them in boxes and I think they’ll make great baby shower or newborn baby gifts.

You can find them in the Imperial Crochet Etsy shop at the following (non-affiliate) links:

Anyway, that’s what I’ve been up to lately.  How about you?  What’s on your hook?  Share with me in the comments section.  I love hearing from my readers.

Snapdragon Stitch Baby Blanket

Available now in my Etsy shop!

Yesterday, I finished another baby blanket for my Etsy shop.  I used my favorite Snapdragon Stitch and created a gray-on-gray acrylic blanket with large stripes and a beautiful ruffly edge.

The edge was created using the reverse shell stitch on single crochet.  I found this wonderful border edge stitch while searching for something else on Youtube and I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it.  I couldn’t wait to try it out.


I love the way this baby blanket turned out!

The border turned out gorgeous but if you’re thinking of using it you need to know it’s very time consuming and it is a yarn eater.  I used almost an entire skein of Deramores Studio DK to complete a 34″ x 36″ blanket.

Anyway, that’s what I’ve been working on lately.  Well, that and some new baby booties that I’ll share with you soon!

How about you?  What’s on your hook?

Cinco De Mayo Gift Ideas – The Crochet Edition

3 Fun Etsy Finds!

Cinco de Mayo is a day for celebrating the culture of Mexico with great Mexican food and drinks.  I’m embarrassed to say that although I knew of the holiday and have even attended a Cinco de Mayo party or two, I wasn’t fully aware of the reason for the celebration so I looked it up.

Don’t you love Wikipedia?

The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army’s difficult victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza.
