Crochet Superhero Inspired hat and fingerless gloves

Wow so as I was writing many post today so I can finally get some of my projects up on my blog I realized that I really do love to crochet for other people HAHAH.

At work we do a secret Santa exchange every year ( well this was the 2nd year) I was excited when I got match with this geek girl at work. I knew she likes video games and super heroes and such and when her favorite included red, yellow and black it was super easy to come up with this combo.

I saw this pattern on the Red Heart website a few years back and always wanted to make the hat but I could never figure out who would be willing to wear such a hat. until Fanny came along that is =-)

For the gloves I followed this simple pattern from The Hippy Hooker. It was quite a simple project to make and I think it turned out looking great.

Crochet Minion Purse

I recently signed up to be a secret Santa for a local child in need this Christmas season. When I receive my letter from my kid I was super excited to see she wanted anything to do with Minions. I had been seeing quite a few cute crochet things Minion all over Pinterest and wanted to make one but no one in my family is into the Minions so I was super excited to be able to make something for this little girl. So here is my Crochet Minion Purse

I found a really cute pattern for a minion purse on Atelier Handmade but honestly I didn’t want to purchase a pattern I would only use once. So I decided that I would just do my own.

This is really the first time that I crochet something without using a pattern and I must say I am quite happy on how it turned out.

I decided to make my purse using the Seed Stitch and it turned out great. I LOVE using this stitch becuase it givs your work a nice effect and being that it is 2 stitch in on it makes the bag tough and you do not need to line the bag with fabric.In the picture you will see that I added buttons on the side to make the straps adjustable. I will actually be modifying this tonight as it is making the purse too heavy and it makes it flip.  I will be adding a loop on both side where I will be ale to stick the strap trough and then close it with the button to adjust the length.

I am sooooo very happy on how this purse came out. I posted it on my Facebook page and within 2 hours I had 3 orders for one so that makes me even happier.

Thanks for taking the mine to read my rants.  Tata for now
