Baby Hats and McKenna Shirts

I mean, you have got to be kidding me, right???!! I mean, have you ever seen a cuter baby, mom and family in your life?  I really can not get over it.  at all.  And we already miss her like crazy and are pretty obsessed with her.  Avery jacks my phone, calls allison and begs to ichat with her like every hour.  It is getting out of hand.
Since she was coming and I knew we had to have something pink to wear, I pulled out my new silhouette (love it!) and put together a little design, screen printed it and then added a little glitter to jazz it up...

(nevermind that the shirts are super wrinkled and kinda tie dye looking...oh how I miss my top loader...)

And, also, I have recently gotten into hats.

(and can we get over how amazing brittany is??!! her pics just blow me away every time I see them.  and i was there the whole day with her and she just looked like a normal person taking pics.  and then they look like this.  amazing.)
It all started over here when Ashley sent us this amazing package of these adorable hats, books and candy that she sent our family.  She is so amazing and we were blown away.  My kids were ecstatic about the hats and put them on immediately and never took them off (And slept in them).  They had the cutest labels on them and she even knitted me a bookmark.  It was gorgeous and so so thoughtful.

That made me want to try my hand at hats too.  So I made a few adult ones and a few baby ones...and, like usual, I kept going and made like 20...
Of course my first recipient had to be the newest, cutest girl we know,

They were really easy and I taught Linds in about five minutes on the way to see Allison and she, of course, did it, amazingly.

and I had to do a matching pair...

and a few more.
And I have a few in my shop...
And Jeff told me that there are a lot of places that take donated hats for newborns.  So, I thought maybe be the Tom's of baby hats and donate a baby hat for everyone that is bought.

I am still working on a few more boy ones, and getting the sizing down...
And I have only made a few adult ones, but, get ready folks, (as always) there are more to come.
There are a few more scarf designs too (here are a few of them)...
