Christening shoes and bonnet

I made satin shoes and a bonnet for my neighbors baby girl, to go with her dress.  Here are the pics, the shoes are my in the hoop design, no extra embroidery, the lace on the shoes and bonnet were digitized by me and stitched on water soluble stabilizer, then sewn to the hat and shoes.  Matching lace for the dress was out of stock everywhere, so i made my own.

Crochet hats and boots

I was in the mood for some crochet work, as the weather cools and a few requests pending, I was able to finish a few projects, so here they are.

Here are what two of them came up with so far.

thanks, Wanda B and Donna M, Brandi, Kami Marie and Michele for the great samples, you can find the cut file HERE
