A gift for Violet

My Nephew's wife is going to have a baby girl and she already has a name! They are going to name her Violet, (isn't that the sweetest name!) I had to make sweet Violet a gift and of course I thought it should be Violet!
I made these cute little shoes and decided to put a felted flower on the toe with 3 small beads for the flower center. I then thought I should probably make a hat to match.
I kind of made up the hat pattern but wanted to weave a ribbon through it so I made a double crochet  near the bottom of the hat to weave the ribbon through. I also made a felted flower clip to attach so you can either clip it to the hat, clip it in her hair or clip it to whatever clothing she would be wearing. I think I  have a new favorite color! Violet!
I finished making these cute sunflower shoes as well, I just need to make a hat to match. Oh, wouldn't a large sunflower on the hat look oh, so cute! I better get busy and get working on the hat. You never know when I will need another baby gift!
              Can't wait for Violet to make her arrival!
