Crochet: Heart Stitch Hat and Pants Pattern

DSC_0239ppdIt’s here!  It’s here!  It’s finally here!

By far, my most popular post is this one about my heart stitch leg warmers.  I’ve gotten so many messages about a matching hat, like Tessa’s wearing in the photos.


So, I present to you, the  promo flyerIt comes packed with cool stuff, like a photo tutorial to help you through making a whole pair of pants.

The hat can be made in all sizes- from newborn all the way up to adult.

The pattern walks you through making the pants virtually any size (I totally want to see adult heart stitch pants), but includes measurements for newborn thru child (4-5 years) size.

The color combinations are really endless.

Paintings now in the shop!

I know it’s only August and you’re probably not thinking about Christmas yet.  I always get super busy around Christmas time, though, and I’m hoping to get a jump on my Christmas projects.  If you’re interested in having me paint something for you this year, be sure to get your order in well in advance. 

I currently have two options: acrylic and oil

Acrylic:  This is a fun, simple, colorful style of painting I have done quite a bit. These are quite popular for children’s photos especially.

ImageImageImageOil:  More blended colors and maybe a little more 3-dimensional.  These are popular for pets. (Though, I can do whatever image either way).  Oil paint takes significantly longer to dry than acrylic, so plan accordingly.

ImageImageImageOf course, I’m able to do other sizes and subjects than what I’ve listed in the shop, so email me with any questions.  

There were SO MANY shops named Stitches by… so I changed the name of my shop to Chelsie Brady Original.  I think that is more general, so I can sell art and other things besides sewing or crocheting.

I have had quite a few requests to make certain items that I’ve blogged about.  The things I do make great baby shower gifts, blessing and christening outfits, birthday presents, Christmas presents, the list goes on… If you’re interested, order from etsy, comment on a post, or shoot me an email.  I’d love to make something special for you or the little one in your life.
