Crocheted Boys cap

DSC_2828 hats & bags watermarked
Baby boys cap. The large one is for toddler 1-2 years old made using cotton blended. The small one is for my niece Irfan using Ilaria Viscose and Cotton Blended. Unluckily, he could not fit in the hat that I make for 3 months size. Next time, for babies, you need to make something big than their age. So that they can fit in it right away or maybe a few more months.

Urban Girl Tote bags and baby hat for customer

Really apologizes for not updating this blog for so long. But, along the way, I have lots of stories to tell you all about what I did for the past few months. Crocheting and sewing stuffs. Hehe..wait for another entry.Open-mouthed smile

My husband’s friend wanted to order something for his nieces. So he was asking me to do something for the girls. Which takes some time figuring out what to make. Something easy and nice and practical for all of them. I do not want to make something that is not suitable and practical for the girls. And walla, totes idea came to my mind after browsing for free patterns on the Lion brand website. They can use the totes to put pocket money (duit raya) inside it. I know, my 3 year old Tasneem would love to have something like this, so bright and can put her personal belongings inside the small cute tote. But, I did not make her one. I will though. One day!Winking smile

For the tote, it is Urban Girl Tote, free pattern taken from Lion Brand Yarn website. This is very easy pattern and finish up fast. The only thing I adjust was make the handles longer. I am using Nona double stranded yarn and 5.5mm crochet hook for the tote. After that, I embellished with crocheted flower and also crocheted butterflies, and sew it to the totes.

The baby hat was for 6-12 months old. The mother did not want any ribbons or buttons attached to the hat. Just plain and simple will do.

Floral Pillow Crochet Technique


When I looked at Crochet Today magazine project for this pillow, I am very amazed at the outcome. I really wanted to make one for home, the living room. Oh no, actually not make one, but need to make a pair of it. But wait, I have more things to knit and crochet along the way! Maybe next time, I will make another one of this pillow :p . Maybe with a different color.

The technique is crochet, I am using 5.5mm hook, with two strands of acrylic yarn. This pattern I would say it is simple to do. Once you know how to make dc (double crochet), trc (treble crochet), it is very easy. I love the looks like a 3D. Don’t you love this pattern too?

Anyway, if you are making this pattern too, please share it with me, I would love to see the outcome too!


The picture is lovely isn’t it? This is taken by my beloved husband. Right now, he is like a pro in taking product shots. He is the one, who took all my product shots in Cotton House Store. Thank you my husband for taking beautiful and great pictures :)

Crocheted Hat for 3 year old

DSC_2320 baby hat_520x346
One of my husband’s collegue order this hat for her niece. Same age as Tasneem with 19” head circumference. She wanted her niece to wear this for their trip to Taiwan next month. It will be chilly there although it is just spring time.
So, I suggested using cotton blended yarn because it has acrylic too, which will give warmth during their stay there. This hat has brim to protect against sun rays. It is also suitable to be worn in Malaysia.

I inserted ribbons and embellish with simple flowers using Nona acrylic yarns.

Crocheted Baby Set in Fuschia Pink

DSC_2088 baby set_636x424
My customer saw the pictures of previous cardigans and after seeing the pictures of baby hats that I make on Cotton House Store facebook, she wanted to order a full set for her daughter.
So, this is it.

DSC_2013 baby set_636x424
I used ladybug white color buttons to embellish the shoes.
DSC_2098 baby set_636x424
The sizes for her order is for 6-12 months old. So, the finished sizes for the cardigan is 22”, shoes 4” and baby hat 16-17”.
I am glad that my customer is happy with the results.

Crocheted Baby Hat Again with Brim

DSC_1164 baby hat_691x1037 DSC_1170 baby hat_1037x691
I never use beanie or baby hat that was given as gift for my daughter to wear. The reason is that whenever she wears it, it covers her eyes. So, I am afraid that it will also covers her nose as well.
So, I make something more useful. Making baby hat with brim, to protect from the sun rays. Whenever we goes out, then, she will have protection against the sun. We do not have to open umbrella which is tedious to bring (if it just hot, no rain).
This time, I used cotton blended yarn white with salmon colors. I use 5mm crochet hook. The finished sizes is 15”-16”. Why I chose these colors, simple. Easy to match with whatever colors that are in her wardrobe.
I made another one too for her my niece Hamnah. Same age as my daughter.

Baby Hat

DSC_0365 playground sri nibong jan 2011_1037x691
Let me just put what I have crocheted these past months. It did not mean that I did not do anything for my hobby, but there weren’t time for me to update this blog. Really, my second daughter needed me to always carry her whenever she is awake.
So, right now I am going to update whatever my creations for the last few months.
Tasneem’s hat, made using 100% Nona Acrylic (just want to try out the from the Japanese pattern book). The hook sizes state 5, but at that time I was not sure is that 5mm or just size 5 in Japan. But, unfortunately it is not 5mm as I was expected, it is size 5. So, I have to googled out to find what is the equivalent size for 5, it is actually 3.4mm, but I subsitute it with 3.5mm. Well, it turns out well and fits my 3 year plus daughter with 19” hat circumference.
The pictures taken at a playground near our house by my husband.

This is my second daughter, Humayra. She loves to be cuddled. I made this using 100% acrylic yarn using 5mm hook. But, this was just for trial. Looks, how many colors are there in the hat. I wanted to finish up any leftover yarns. So, that I can fill it up with other yarns that I bought. Hehe.
The pattern for the hat is from the cocoon baby hat pattern. What I did is just make the brim with sc all around the hat for 4 times and made the ruffles edging using shell stitches.
I ended up adorned both hats using ribbons. Easy to insert it using very large needles and no sewing needed.

Sassy Style Sweater

DSC_0461 [50%]
It took months for me to finish up this pattern. Actually it only takes about 2-3 days of your leisure time to finish up this easy pattern. I bought this pattern at The instructions are for 2,4 and 6 years old. It requires using 2 strand of yarn together with 5mm hook, but I managed to use just one strand of Ilaria Viscose with 6mm hook, and can fit my 3 year old child easily.
Although the pattern say it is easy, but I am having quite a difficult time understanding the pattern, with the weird design (I never made this kind of pattern before, so there comes difficulty with each design).
