I'm a sucker for Red White and Blue. To me, it represents warm summer days sipping a cool drink in the shade of a huge tree. It represents the Heart Land of American, Apple Pie, Baseball and Independence Day. When I was a kid we could walk to the corner fireworks booth and buy whatever we wanted and we always had a huge cook out for the fourth. Those are great memories for me and when summer approaches all I want to do is create in my summer colors, Red White and Blue. So here are the first of this years Summer Fun baby photography prop hats. Look for more coming soon :)
Lisa Green and I converse via email on a regular basis since she bought several of my photo props. She has such wonderful ideas and gives me a great perspective from the photographers point of view. She sent me this photo featuring a beautiful baby wearing one of my hats she'd purchased. As you can see Lisa has a wonderful vintage style and the coloring is gorgeous. I can't complain about the hat, PEARL either, it really works well in this photo. Thanks Lisa Green for providing me with this and other professional photography shots featuring beautiful babies wearing wearing my handmade crochet photography props
A bit of a beanie and a bit of a flower hat...thats what LITTlE TOMBOY is. Something a little out of the ordinary is always a good thing when it comes to great baby photography and thats what I've tried to create with this cute little crochet hat.
I just received a beautiful photograph using one of my photography props and I must say the picture and the model are just beautiful and really makes my Sweet Pea Cocoon look great. With that said I'd like to give a special thanks to Kel Ward Photography for making my Cocoon look awesome. You take great Photographs Kel Ward...Keep it up
With yarn in hand It's hard to put off the inevitable so with a large hook I set out to create. The yarn screamed to me, it wanted to be a funky little elf hat and I agreed. I could picture the hat perched atop a newborns little head, a tassled little stip laying gently on the babys behind. I could see it all.
Well here is my image and my creation. Now Raggamuffin waits patiently to be purchased and perched atop a brand new baby's head.
The new handspun yarn I just purchased and picked up is awesome. It kind of reminds me of a rag bag with faded greys to brilliant fuschias all in one long continuous strand. I've already created a cute as can be baby elf night cap. I just need some photos and I'll get it listed. Althoughy i bought the yarn to create a baby hat this yarn had a big impact on me. The one thing this particular yarn did for me was sparked my creativity. For a while I've been wanting to dabble in t-shirt yarn and do so fabric strip items. I have an abundance of both but haven't been motivated to start. Well I think I finally have my spark of creativity that is the incentive for every new project I start. I'll keep you updated but I have big plans and am motivated to get started. Keep your fingers crossed :D Kathy
I love creating hats using specialty yarns. I often browse different sites like etsy and artfire looking for handspun and hand dyed yarns. The yarns that attract me most have that thick and thin texture that makes a beautifully eye catching and unusual hat. Most often these yarns are in very small amounts and I may only be able to make one hat with a particular lot of yarn. So of course they are One of a Kind. I'm always looking and when I find yarn that appeals to me I scoop it up. Once the hat is finished I list it and it usually sells quickly :D
Check my shop often for those special One of a Kind hats for a beautiful newborn photo prop.
This hat is so soft and scumptious in a vivid deep eggplant color. Fuzzy and fun and perfect for those one of a kind baby photos. This hat will fit 0-3 months. I strive to make my hats unique with fun colors pretty flowers and all are unique. The yarn for this hat is so soft you just want to snuggle deep into it. Any baby would love the feel of this hat perched precariously atop their head. Just imagine the photos that would result from your beautiful baby and this beautiful Floppsy hat. :@)
I don't know why but the bulk of my creations and designs seem to lend themselves to girls more than boys so when I get something that really fits a boy I try to use it. A repeat customer sent me a request for a special hat so I got right to work creating it. Of course I have to make my own version of this hat and I did but will create the original for my customer. Turquoise and brown is the original pale blue and fuzzy lime is my version.
I've been buying specialty yarns. Usually hand spun and hand dyed. These specialy yarns come in very small amounts and is usually only enough for one hat so they have become my one of a kind hats. They will never be reproduced because the yarn will never be the same. Never the same texture or color and even the spiining itself varies. I like the thick and thin variety. This type of yarn makes a very visually interesting hat and it's great for photos. The colors are usually mixed and very vibrant. Another good thing when it comes to photography.
This little hat is so out of the ordinary. Crocheted with tomato red then adorned with baby pink and white spiral roses and finally accented with soft green leaves. Perfect for those one of a kind photos and great for special events and everyday wear. Mommy and me sets and sister sets also available or mix hats for really and cute photos. This hat is Newborn size and ready to ship but other sizes available. Just convo me for prices of larger hats and sets. All yarn in this hat is 100% cotton.
Blossom is made of soft pink 100% Cotton yarn. Then one single rose blossom of deep dusty pink is cradled by two mossy green leaves. This little hat is all baby girl and perfect for those one of a kind first Photos but great for everyday wear.This hat will fit a newborn.
This little hat is so cute and different.Bramble Berry Elves spin hats from the wool of pure white woolly sheep. But as the elves scamper and frolic in the bramble berry patch their hats slowly absorb the sweet red color of the berries, and thats how this hat came to be the blotted berry red it is.
Perfect for those special one of a kind photos this hat is wool and acrylic blend in shades of berry red with bits of blue sky and a few smudges of chocolate. What a special hat for that special little bundle. This hat will fit a newborn.
Cutie Patootie is one of my favorite creations. I love the huge layered flower of pale yellow and pale pink. The diaper cover is natural 100% cotton yarn. It's adjustable and the flower is removeable so it can be placed on the back or the front or just use the flower alone. To purchase Cutie Patootie or any of my other creations visit my Etsy Store. Thanks for looking :@)
