I'm Such A Sucker For Hand Made Things...Especially When They Are Made For My Kids!!

The art of crocheting & knitting are such an amazing talent. I do not have the patience or time to sit and create something amazing from a ball of yarn and two needles...but I am always amazed at people who can do it, with ease & create amazing things from it. Mal Rod's Place is an online store where you can get items, hand crocheted & knitted by one special lady to be exactly what you have in mind for your "special someone's" present. She makes amazing hats, blankets, baby sweaters & adorable booties. All of which, are made with the same techniques that our Grandma's used, but given a CUSTOM & MODERN flair.
We got the blessing of receiving four amazing hats, created just for each one of my kids, with their likes in mind (sent to us free of charge). I can tell from looking at these hats, she took extra LOVE in creating each one! They are not just hats, they are Hats made FROM THE HEART! LOVE IT!
My 8 year old loves OHIO State and she made him this adorable hat in their team colors
My 6 year old loves kitty cats and she created this hat with her favorite animal in mind. Her comment "BROOKIE LIKIE!"
My 3 year old is TOTALLY PINK and she created this beanie just for her. It's frilly & pink and absolutely lovely! My 1 year old has really blue eyes and I love to dress him in those colors to emphasis their color...
Just a small note...these hats do run kind of small, so you might want to order a little bigger than normal!

Would you like to win your own CUSTOM CREATED hat? I am able to offer (1) amazing hat to (1) amazing winner!

I LOVE EACH ONE OF THEM! Not only because they were hand made, but because they were custom made for my kids by someone that truly cares about my satisfaction in each of them!

Got a special someone in mind for a custom hat? Maybe a baby blanket (cause you don't have time to create one yourself with a ball of yarn & needles)? How about some adorable booties too? Head over to Mal Rod's Place and get those creative juices flowing, as she creates your custom pieces for you!
I was not paid to do this product review!

I would see if she could make a wool skully cap for my Baby Sprout, as I love the style, and wool would keep him super warm. I would like brown... a neutral color to go with anything.

I would have it made for my 17mo Baby Sprout.

I would go for something very similar as the hat on your one-year-old, perhaps in pink. That is too cute!
