Sweet as Sugar!

A few weeks ago my very good friend {we've been friends since high school!} Katie, blogger of Our Life with the Littles asked me if Miss Sweetcheeks would be interested in modeling some crochet leg warmers that she was making for her Etsy shop. Sissy would get to keep the leg warmers and headband in exchange for a little bit of work. Katie needed Sissy to model those leg warmers and headband, and for me to catch some good photos of her doing it.


Acting as her agent, I said "Yes!". Katie has some super cute handmade items in her Etsy shop: Sweet as Sugar and I couldn't pass up the deal. I love handmade items. I especially love handmade crochet/knit items and given the fact that I don't know how to crochet (or knit) I'm uber-jealous of those that can. Sissy has a few headbands from other Etsy shops that we also adore, but nothing like what Katie sent. The headband is so simple and fabulous. The yarn that she used is super soft, slightly stretchy and a gorgeous color. I love that it has a thin band and is perfect for Spring/Summer.

 Isn't it just perfect? It's so girly and fun and it's a perfect match to the leg warmers. Which, we also adore. Again, super soft, slightly stretchy and the flowers are the perfect feminine touch without being overpowering. I love the way that the leg warmers and headband pair pefectly with her simple Polo dress:

 
It's perfect for this mild Texas weather. And I know that once she starts crawling, they will do a great job of keep her little knees protected on these hard ceramic tiles that cover our entire house.

I also love that we can pull them up over her chubby things and make them into a sort of leggings, or leave them slouchy and kinda trendy looking...
I'm sure they'd look great with a pair of faux-Uggs but we don't have those. They also look great just as a photo prop...this picture I captured of Sissy is one of my all time favorites. Forget the fact that the exposure/lighting is off (it was overcast out) I just love how the leg warmers & headband add that touch of girlishness yet shows off her baby side; I super love that she is sucking her thumb...just a little something that she's been doing recently that her brothers never did.
So, I cannot recommend Katie enough! Be sure to check out her shop for other cute items as well! She not only crochets but also sews and has the most adorable onesie dresses and bibs too!
