Pinterest Pays Off

Do you ever resort to stealthily searching friend's or family's pinterest's boards for gift ideas?  Or maybe just out of curiosity?  I do!  And, my mom, to my advantage, apparently does as well.

It's paid off to have a pinterest board titled Quilts and Crafts for Mom because on her last visit, she arrived with a homemade gift for Grace...


a beautifully crocheted hat.


Made using the softest of yarn.


Thanks Mom, pinterest and Crocheting and Knitting the Day Away for turning this pinned hat into a reality.


If anyone wants to stealthily look through my pinterest boards, for gift ideas or out of curiosity, I encourage you :)

*Crochet hat pattern can be found at Crocheting and Knitting the Day Away.

  2. That hat looks absolutely perfect paired with Grace's coat. My mom crochets too, and I love getting handmade gifts from her.

  4. Beautiful hat!! Blends well with her blonde hair and also complements the coat well. You know, my sister got a gift idea off of Pinterest for our J once. It *does* pay off :).

  7. Okay, I have three comments:

    1. I totally did that with my sister-in-law two years ago. I bought all of her gifts from her Pinterest boards and it was a huge success!

    2. That hat is totes adorbs (to borrow a phrase from my almost-teenager).

    3. Grace's hair is so long and beautiful! She looks more like her mama every day ;)

  8. Such a cute hat!!! My Mom refuses to use the computer outside of work. I'm not even sure she's aware of pinterest is. :) Love the yarn she used and Grace looks adorable.
