This Travel Felt Mat would be a home-run handmade gift for boys and girls. I think I’ll stash a few for the girlies and last minute birthday surprises. Get the tutorial.

I’m a bit of an origami freak so I adore this beauty!

You may remember that I was looking for a pattern for a sweet baby hat with ears. Alas, I never got around to making poor Gordon a hat but look at this sweet shop that a friend sent our way!! Now to choose a favorite. The owl? The koala? The monkey? Beware, looking at this shop will make your ovaries ache.

This new-to-me crochet pattern is a beautiful alternative to the granny square

And if that’s not enough crochet-fun for you (we learned there are ALOT of yarn-mad readers here on Prudent Baby) here are a few more patterns we liked.

Crochet Basket Weave Baby Afghan.

Crochet Swirls. Such a sweet little accent for a hat, headband or sweater.

Crochet Sheep Earmuffs Tutorial.

Aren’t these Crocheted Crocodile Necklaces the sweetest?

And lastly (’cause the baby is resting up for a night of torturing mama) something for the fellow cooking nerds… Have you heard that America’s Test Kitchen has a radio show? You can download episodes from the website. Check out this weeks episode…
This week on Americas Test Kitchen Radio, were investigating the business if running a restaurant and what it really takes to be a successful restaurateur. Were tasting premium butter, well find whats hot and whats not in the world of kitchen gadgets, and well travel back in time to discover the origins of Chiffon Cake. And of course, well be taking your calls to answer all your cooking questions.

Have a nice weekend lovelies! It’s the last chance to leave a comment to win a yard of pom-pom trim from my stash. What color will you pick?




I am totally addicted to yarn!!!! I am making 7"x7" granny squares for a blanket for my car. I love all of these patterns!!! Looks like I will try so much more! Thanks so much for the links! I would love the light pink pom poms!!!!


Make your ovaries hurt! I have been having that problem lately the past few months as my youngest is growing out of that little baby stage and into toddlerhood. But I love it I'm glad I'm not the only one!

Oh not only do those crocheted hats make my ovaries ache, but that alternative to granny squares makes my….well whatever the crocheting equivalent is to ovaries….fingers ache maybe?


Love the sweet shop with the hats – I went on there and see a skunk hat – I called my baby "stinker" alot – sooo cute!

Still hoping for pom pom trim, not sure on color.
