Bundle Of Love

It truly made my day to receive this pic from the baby's mommy! I am so excited to share it with you. Introducing her beautiful newborn baby boy sleeping in his elf hat and cocoon which was of course crocheted by me:) He is approximately 21" long and has plenty of room to snuggle up in his cocoon. Seeing him sleep so sweetly in it makes it a definite must have for your newborn bundle of love!

This set is available in all colors.
If you are interested in purchasing an elf hat and a cocoon set, please contact me at abigail@piefairyprincess.com

Salt Dough Hearts

Looking for last minute ideas for Valentine's Day? Me too:) Just came across these and thought it's such a brilliant idea.

We used a small heart-shaped cookie cutter and this standard salt dough recipe: 1/2 cup salt, 1/2 cup warm water, 1 cup flour. My five-year-old enjoyed rolling out the dough and cutting the hearts. Then we poked large holes for the string, baked them at 250 for around two hours (until hard all the way through), painted with acrylic paints and dusted them with glitter while the paint was still wet. Easy!

Please share your last minute crafty Valentine's Day ideas with me here. Thank you.
