Knitted Baby Dress Pattern

Today is the second day of our 31 Days of Knitted Gifts!  Our previous two projects can be found here.  This sweet knitted dress is perfect for fall.  Just picture it paired with leggings and baby boots.  Absolutely adorable!  Oooh, and if you added stocking and gold shoes with a gold hair bow it would be perfect for Christmas!

Needle and yarn

US 7 – 4.5 mm

Pattern: This free pattern can be found on


Followed the listed pattern through row 27, doing seed stitch instead of ribbing between the leaves. On row 28 did 25 stitches in seed stitch, bound off 31, 50 seed stitch, bound of 31, 25 seed stitch (last stitch knit 2 together). Couple more rounds of seed stitch…then I knit 3 rounds in st st, one round of purl, and started Flora dress with 9 repeats of chart A.  I knit one round then 3 rounds of seed stitch to finish.

Apple Hat Pattern

Today is the second day of our 31 Days of Knitted Gifts!  To see our previous project, go here.  This little apple hat is adorable for newborn photos or family fall pictures!

I love to see babies in hats!  Well, babies are always adorable but when you put one in a hat they are overwhelmingly cute.  So cute that women will have to make some sound when they see them.  Either “awww”, or “oh my!” or the ever popular high pitch squeal.  I hope this apple hat will bring your babies lots of compliments.  Be sure to bookmark this tutorial to share with them when they ask where you got it…because trust me, your little one will be so cute, they’ll have to ask!

Needle and yarn

Pattern: Both patterns used in this project are from and were free!  The apple hat pattern can be found here and the leaf pattern here.


I only own two 12” circular needles: size 4 and 8.  I prefer these over DPN so I used the 4’s for the ribbing and 8’s for the rest. Switched to DPNs when I had to. Used a little scrap of cascade 220 for the stem and scrap of lettuce malabrigo for the leaf.  This hat took less than 3 hours total to make. Even on size 8’s it seems tiny. I hope it fits her!

If you like this hat, please pin it so others can find it.

Winnie the Pooh Baby Shower #DisneySide

Winnie the Pooh Party Cake

Isn’t this Winnie the Pooh cake just adorable!  It was made for my sweet friend’s Winnie the Pooh baby shower.  I’m here to share all the wonderful Winnie the Pooh party details with you here in collaboration with Disney. {They gave me a few goodies and party supplies.}  If you want to replicate this cake to show off your #DisneySide you can find the cake decorations/bath toys at Babies R Us.

Ladybug Cupcakes

Here is a fun grass covered cupcake with two friendly ladybugs.

Winnie the Pooh Party - Rabbit's Garden

I absolutely fell in love with this idea and I think everyone enjoyed munching on veggies from Rabbit’s garden.

Winnie the Pooh Party - Kanga's Pouch

Kanga’s Pouches provided a nice snack.  You’ll notice there were Pooh books placed randomly throughout the party to add to the decor.

Winnie the Pooh - Tigger Tails

Tigger Tails not only made for a colorful display but also a nice take home treat.

Winnie the Pooh Party - Hugs and Kisses for Eeyore

Hugs and Kisses for Eeyore.  Who couldn’t use more hugs?

Winnie the Pooh Party - Piglet's Punch

Piglet Punch was a simple pink punch with striped paper straws added for fun.

Think, Think, Think Framed Print

DIY Pooh Party decor right here!  Print, cut to size, and frame.  There were also pages from Winnie the Pooh books that were framed and on display also but I didn’t manage to get a shot of those.

Winnie the Pooh Diaper Bike

Check out this super cute Winnie the Pooh diaper motorcycle!  A friend of mine made this for the shower and I am in awe at her creativity.  I’ve made diaper cakes before but this stepped it up a notch.

Winnie the Pooh Party Decorations

Here is the gift table with a rusty red wagon and Pooh on board.  The honey pot window decor was a store bought decoration.  Oh, there is a picture of a framed Winnie the Pooh page!!

Winnie the Pooh Party

On the tables there was Winnie the Pooh themed confetti {I almost wrote “Pooh confetti” but that just doesn’t sound right!}, Winnie the Pooh bingo cards, and thank you note envelopes for the guests to write their address on.

I think the party was a huge success.  The decorations were full of cute but low on cost, the mama-to-be was blessed with an abundance of baby gifts, and there were even a few tears of happiness shed.  This is how my friends and I showed a little of our #DisneySide!  I hope enjoyed the party overview and feel inspired to show your #DisneySide to others.
