Woodsy Shower Gift & Pattern Review

I love to put together a bunch of gifts to go with a theme for my friend's children. This kiddo's parents are country to the core (John Deere and antlers and all), so I went all country on the gift. I gave them a combination of purchased, sewn, and crocheted items. The boots are camo + suede. So stinkin cute.

I love how it is a random combination of things, but still sort of flows. I still cannot decide which part is my favorite!

I do love the owl hat though. They are all the rage right now. I made one for another friend's daughter as well. The pattern is from Repeat Crafter Me. I LOVE her patterns. So many good ones! I'm making her reindeer hat soon for my cousin. So fun.

The cross strap slipper pattern is a new one for me. It was given to me by Ashton Leven to share on my blog. The slippers were so cute and the mom to be LOVED them! The pattern was easy to follow, although I had to go up a hook size or two as my crocheting is so tight!

You can find this slipper and many other gorgeous patterns on Ravelry and Etsy. She has lots of baby shoes, boots, and hats. I'm currently working on her reversible knit look headband. It's gorgeous (post to come)!

[I was given this pattern for free from Asthon Leven to review on my blog, but all opinions are my own.]
