Just random, remember how I wanted to make a crocheted headband earwarmer thing? Well, I did it! pretty cute, right?? I ended up using the one from as Grow Creative as inspiration - I think it turned out pretty close - here's hers:
I'm not great with patterns, so I glanced over the scallop band one and starred at the picture for a while, then just went for it. For the flower, I actually did read the pattern so I was super proud of that.
The only issue - WRONG SIZE! that's what I get for not following instructions! I thought I'd make it small since it was a practice one - I was aiming for American Girl Doll size. Well it was way to big for that. So then I thought it'd fit my girls - way to small for that. I tried it put it on my toddler (he's 3) but he refused because it was for girls, but in the wrestling I tried and figured it was too small for even him.
So I had to go on a hunt for a baby girl - - and for some reason, I'm only surrounded by baby boys right now. I think it'd fit like a 6-9 month old, but I pried it on a little girl who just turned a year so I could snap a picture. Isn't she a cutie?? She kept trying to take it off until her mom busted out some snacks - so mental note, need a quick picture, turn to snacks to save the day...
