Attic 24 Crochet Bag

I wanted a quick simple project I was getting burned out on all the hats I have been making over the last 2 months. Plus I have alot of scrap material I want to use up when I saw a cute little bag HERE however I wanted to gift this bag to someone? WHO I am not sure yet but I figured I would grab someone attention with the color selection. 

Here is my current bag in progress the bottom has been adjusted after I felt the 15 inch bottom was looked TOO big maybe it was just me so I ripped it down to 12 inches and here is a current up to date pictures of the bag in progress..

Crochet Kids Chemo Caps

At a request from my mom who works for Hospice they need some chemo caps for kids so I have been working hard along with my daughter who is just learning to crochet hats to whip up a few dozen chemo hats for these kids. But I wanted to share a few with you

Crochet Visor Hats

I found a few patterns on line for visor hats the fun part was trying to get that crazy visor to lay flat and less bumpy I had to tear it out a few times. This hat was suppose to fit ? a teenager yet It may fit a young child maybe I will keep you posted on it to see if it will fit..there is only maybe 1 inch stretch room to fit a young child
 This was a different pattern for a young child size yet seems to look better in a picture then close up lol it's a little bumpy but I torn it out after I took these pictures and created the red visor above..of the two visors I think the black and red would fit a young child better
