Toddler Tool Belt

The fourth and final item in this order was for a tool belt in coordinating colors with the hard hat. These might have been the cutest toys I’ve ever made! And super easy too since there was no stuffing required!! I used My Sweet Potato 3’s Tool Belt – Hammer, Wrench, Screwdriver Pattern in size 3-6 months. I used RHSS in Gold, Blue, and Gray Heather with 5.5mm and 6.5mm hooks.

When I made this the stitch counts on the belt were off. The button whole was super off and the length wasn’t what it needed to be. Christine was fairly quick with her response. Facebook was acting up so the delay wasn’t her fault. It wasn’t long at all for her to fix everything.

I was a little confused with the wording on the head of the wrench. So I kind of just did what I thought looked good to me. I think it all worked out in the end.

I think my favorite part about this is that the tools and holder are one size and you can continue making bigger belts as the child grows! It would also be adorable in pink or purple for a little girl’s set. Girls need tools too!

Cowgirl Hat

My Aunt M came to me asking if I could make her granddaughters (my little baby cousins) a cowgirl hat that they could use for play time. And I said absolutely!! Cousin L is a year older so I had to make sure it would fit her. She’s got a giant head (she’s grown into it now haha) so I had to spend a little time finding a good hat that would fit her. That ended up being Crochet Jewel’s Cowboy or Cowgirl Hat pattern.

I used RHSS in Dark Orchid, Pretty n Pink, and Baby Pink with a 6.5mm hook. Couple of things with this pattern. There was NO GAUGE or finished measurements. I needed to go up a hook size while working double strands in order to get the finished circumference that I needed.

It’s not a problem with the pattern but it’s worked in a spiral. There’s nothing wrong with that except that personally I don’t like the way color changes look on a spiral. I will change that next time I make one. Also at the end of the brim, instead of three rounds of the main color I only did two before the contrasting. That is also just a personal preference.

Looking at the pattern now, it appears that finished measurements have been added. The main part of this is that the little girls LOVE their hat and play with it all the time!
