Toadstool hats, mushroom pendants and toadstool slippers...cute!

These crochet projects came from Olivia's first birthday party.  I wanted to do a Waldorf, woodland fairy party theme and so I spent a few weeks writing and re-writing crochet patterns to fit.  I love it when I can think of something and create the pattern without too many headaches.  These patterns came really easy although some of them are being tweaked as we speak.

I saw a toadstool hat in the winter edition of Living Crafts magazine (my favorite magazine right now) sewn from wool felt and I thought I could come up with a crochet version.  The pattern is being tested at the moment and then will be available at my Etsy store, crunchycrochet.

This tiny mushroom pendant works up really fast and makes a really cute party gift.  I am probably going to offer this one as a gift with any crochet pattern purchase.
And last but not least, some toadstool shoesies to go with the toadstool hat.  I am still working on this pattern to make it perfect so hopefully it won't be too long until it is ready for Etsy also.  I had to take these slippers apart because I forgot to stuff the shroom and it went flat as you can see.

I have so many projects I have done in the past months and just have not had time to post but I promise to update more regularly.
