The bunny hat and berry hat both came from a book I bought in France, but was originally published in the UK. I don't know what the English title was originally. I fell in love with these hats and finally made some for my kids! I made two of the bunnies, one in pink (shown) and one in purple for my daughters, and the little berry head is for my son. I made them in wool and then felted them a bit to make them nice and water-tight (it rains a lot here in the winter).





This baby mobile came from this past summer's Crochet Today. It was so cute, I couldn't stand it! I was dying to make it, but didn't really have a reason, until I found out my sister was expecting. Yay!



And last is this little sleepy kitty (pattern here: http://amigurumibyknotty.blogspot.com/2010/01/peaches-sleepy-amigurumi-kitty.html). A friend of mine had to put down his very old and very ill kitty recently, so I made this for him as an homage to her! She was solid black (which made my job easy!), so I used Patons Allure to give this kitty a nice, soft, furry touch.



Oh, and the afghan she's sleeping on was one my aunt made for me many moons ago. Smiley Crochet runs in the family.

I love the mobile! Super cute! Now, as for the two hats on top, they're published in a book I own called, Crochet for Babies and Toddlers by Betty Barnden. I hope that helps! *smiles*

Thanks, both of you! My kids fell in love with the mobile. We all kind of got attached to it! I might have to make one for our house. Smiley

Yeah, that's it! My copy is called "Crochet Tendresse" and I knew it wasn't a direct translation. It's a cute book, isn't it? There are a couple of the sweaters in there that I want to do for my daughters.
