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.

That baby mobile is so adorable, too cute for words. Great job! Also on the kitty and hats, I especially love the bunny hat, so funny!

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.
