Crochet Ear Warmer

I recently bought a lovely ball of wool which I used to make a crochet hat, I previously blogged about this here:

I made this ear warmer for my 8 year old daughter. She loves the colours and loves wearing it when the weather is a bit chilly. Below is a photo of the hat Imade myself using the same ball of wool. I still had spare wool left and will share with you another project very soon insha'Allah.

Crochet Hat

It has been a very long time since I last crocheted. I saw some lovely wool in a local shop recently and just had to buy it and try it out. I decided to make a nice hat, one that would be big enough to slip over my hijab on the cold winter months! We did have some snow and cold days so I have already had the opportunity to wear it.

As usual I didn't follow a full tutorial, I am a novice and start struggling sometimes with certain stitches and end up just making my own design! I did start off following a youtube tutorial for a man size slouchy hat, but then just changed the shape. I then added a crochet flower to the side using the same wool.  I just looooove the colours.

SLH Crafts Review

Most who follow me will also be aware that my 13 year old daughter is also a blogger and has a crafts website SLH Crafts.  She has recently been quite busy with different crafts and also won a local art competition recently so I thought it was about time I showcased some of her recent work here on my blog too!  I am so proud of her achievements and her talents continue to amaze me masha'Allah.

The main photo above shows her receiving her prize for the Alice in Wonderland Piece of art she did for the Art Competition.  The photos below show some of her lovely paintings she has recently done.

Below are some other art pieces she has created and shared on her blog over the last few months.

I used to show her crafts on my blog when she was younger but now that she has her own blog I only show hers occasionally and as a group post. My 8 year old is now also asking for her own craft blog, soon I won't have much to share on my own blog haha!
