Hawaiian Aloha Spirit Crochet

Recently I was lucky enough to take a trip to Hawaii, more specifically, Kauai. I absolutely love it there.  It is beautiful, green, full of flowers, and the people are just wonderful and easy going.  This trip has left me in an aloha spirit and I’ve decided to seek out some Hawaiian-inspired crochet patterns.

The most iconic symbol of Hawaii, in my own humble opinion, would have to go to the beautiful plumeria flowers of the islands.
PlumeriaPatternPhoto_PlanetJuneI found this pattern awhile back and have not had a chance to try it out yet.  It is a 3D flower and is a great likeness to the actual plumeria.  This pattern was created by the very talented June Gilbank of PlanetJune Craft Blog.  She offers the pattern for free on her site.  If you would like a .pdf of the pattern that is formatted for printing, all she asks is a donation to her site, which is well worth it for such a lovely pattern.

This next pattern is a baby hula girl photo prop.  Isn’t it cute?  This pattern is also offered for free via Craftsy.  It was designed by Aimee Arnold.  Her Craftsy store is called Chain Four.  Go check it out!  You do have to create an account to get it, but Craftsy is a great pattern resource.  You can even find Heather’s Craft Corner patterns there! (Shameless plug!)

 

 

HulaGirlAmigurumi
The next pattern is an amigurumi hula girl doll by Sayjai of K and J Dolls.  She is just plain adorable.  This pattern is available on Etsy for $4.99.  There are a bunch of cute patterns available in her shop.  She is incredibly talented.

 
DolphinAmigurumi

 

Let’s not forget about the dolphins.  I was able to take a dinner cruise while in Hawaii and we saw two large pods of dolphins.  They really do like to play with the boat.  This dolphin amigurumi pattern is available on Etsy.  I’m not sure who the creator is.  The shop says that all funds will go to fund dutch artist Joyce Overheul’s projects, but I’m not sure if she actually made the pattern.  Regardless, it is very cute.

If you know of any other cute Hawaiian-themed patterns, please post a comment with the link.  I’d love to see them.

Baby Pocket Bib

Here is another addition to my baby series I’ve been running with.  Can you tell I really love this texture?  Anyway, this bib is made to coordinate with the Diaper Soaker and Baby Sunhat I’ve previously made.
Introducing the Baby Pocket Bib!
The pocket is designed to mimic the pockets on the Diaper Soaker.
Aren’t they cute?

Diaper Soaker / Diaper Cover with Pockets

Aren’t these diaper covers adorable?  The pattern I used is actually intended for a boy diaper soaker, but I have girls.  More importantly, my baby is a girl.  So, I made these in pink and purple.  They are incredibly soft and make her baby bum look so cute!
The texture of this crocheted fabric is what initially caught my eye.  I love it.  So much that I have started creating matching items to go with it.  (See the hat below)

Don’t you just love the pockets on the back?  I LOVE THEM!  They look so adorable on.

 

Here they are in pink.  I created a hat using this texture to match these diaper covers.  I’m currently working on a bib and will be making a burp cloth as well.

Isn’t it cute?  I’m a little proud of it.  This hat pattern will be available in my Etsy Shop soon, hopefully followed by the bib and burp cloth pattern.  I’m also thinking about a little tank or halter to go with it for the little ladies. ***UPDATE: Hat pattern is now available!***

Leave some love!  I’d love to hear your comments!
