Winter is fast approaching…. in fact I saw a few snow flakes falling the other day.  Honestly this makes me want to throw a tantrum and hide in the house til Spring.  I would be perfectly fine if it only snowed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, but unfortunately I live in Ohio and I just have to suck it up and deal with it.  But there is one fun thing that comes from the cold weather – being able to stock up on super cute hats to keep my little ones heads warm!  And let me tell you ya haven’t seen any cuter unless you have already visited Mermaid Designs and browsed around Mary’s beautiful crochet creations.

First I want to tell you a bit about Mary…. she is a mom who’s baby has left her to go to college – the thought alone brings tears to my eyes!  Mary still feels the need to make things for her baby even though she’s not living at home and so she decided to turn that desire into a crafty business.  She started sewing at only seven years old on an old pedal foot Singer and now owns a seamstress/alterations shop.  All of the creative work you see in her Etsy shop is done in her spare time… hmmm, spare time…. I guess that’s what happens with your babies go off to college, hehe.  Mary’s latest creations are baby crochet hats which she hopes to cover her grandbabies in some day.  Love, Learn, and Craft – that’s her motto.

In keeping with the monster theme Mary sent Sugar a beautiful girly one eyed monster hat.  This hat is made up of a combination of very soft acrylic and cotton yarns. You can hand wash in cold water and lay flat to dry.  There are so many things I love about this hat from the crazy wild eye lashes to the pointy teeth that seem to pop right out at you.  This hat also has some stretch to it so it should fit Sugar for a long time!  Mary can make it in sizes newborn though 5 years and can also work with specific measurements.  I sent her Sugar’s head circumference since her head is kinda big… always in the 90th percentile and when I order hats based on age it rarely works out well, hehe.  I can only imagine the time invested in this adorable hat, talent and love seems to literally radiate from it.  Every time Sugar wears her monster hat she constantly gets compliments and you can see why.

She is such a stinkin cute one eyed monster!

I know what you’re thinkin…. “I must have one of these monster hats for my little one!!”… right?  Remember I said they also come in boy colors.  Just head on over to the Mermaid Designs Etsy Shop where you can grab one for $28 with FREE shipping within the United States.  Mary makes so many other beautiful creations so make sure to browse around and check those out too.  Some of my favorites…

Mary has been super generous and offered the winner of the monster prize pack their very own one eyed monster hat in either a boy or girl color scheme.  This giveaway is happening now through November 13th so be sure to leave a comment below stating which color scheme you would pick and another item you like from the Mermaid Designs shop.

    I also like the owl hat in pink. I like the monster hat in pink as well though it would be fun to get it in green. My hubs’s and my first date was to Monster’s Inc. so it would be fin to have a Mike Wozowsky (sp?) hat 🙂
