Look what I made!

 I have been so busy trying to come up with items for my online store, so I can quit my day job. Just kidding about the quitting part, I'm not even close to ready for that! Maybe one day. I wonder if I made my hobby my job if I would still like doing it? hmm..

 Anyway, I've come up with a few new things. I made this cute headband. It's made with cotton crochet thread and gold metallic thread. I'll probably make some more of these.

 This is a lovely hat with an applique of crocheted "buttons".  I actually used the buttons to cover up the seam. It's made with Caron Simply Soft acrylic yarn. The color is dark Sage.

 This is the latest piece that I've been working on, and still am working on. I need to finish the straps for the bottom. It started out as just a bikini top, but then I decided to come up with some kind of matching bottom. It's made with worsted weight 100% cotton yarn by Peaches and Creme. I'm not sure how well it would do in water. It seems like it would soak up a lot of water and get heavy. I'm thinking I should make the straps longer for the bottom.
