Lavender Slippers and Headband

I was asked to make a pair of little fancy shoes for a 2-year-old for Christmas. First I thought about making them red or green, or red-green, you know, in the Christmas spirit, but I had some lavender color merino wool that was just begging to become a slipper. And then to seal the deal I found little pencil-shaped buttons in the same color. There was no more doubt, the slippers were to be lavender! 
I made the sole black (for practical purposes, naturally). 

Lavender Butterfly Headband
Since I had some lavender color wool left over, not enough for a new project but enough for a little accessory, I made a little headband, with a butterfly. It has a little pencil-shaped button too which is not only decorative as on the slippers, but practical so the headband is adjustable for different head sizes.

Hat sets - a hat for mom, a hat for the little one

I went a little crazy with the brimmed hat pattern and made two new sets. 
One set has a standard brimmed hat with bow, just a bigger one for mom, and a smaller one for toddler. Its a set for the stylish moms which love a little twist in the coloring. It's a turquoise/fuchsia combination.

But then I realized not all moms love brims and bows, and weird color combinations so i made another set, a more classic one. A white hat with brown brim and matching bow for the baby (newborns size), and a bigger one without the brimm and bow, just a thin brown edging for the more elegant mom.
