This Christmas has me longing for simple pleasures. I'm not sure if it has anything to do with the crazy state of our world or the fact we're reading "The Little House on the Prairie" series for school, but I have caught myself referencing pioneer life on a daily basis since August. The immense pleasure gained from the simpler things in life has triggered something inside of me.
Yes, this is a post about DIY ornaments! But it is also so much more to me right now. It's a call to be more intentional with our time together, more intentional with how we celebrate the holidays, and less of what doesn't matter.

Easter is right around the corner! This happens to be one of my favorite times of year. The Easter bunny will be here soon and watching the kids find eggs always comes with lots of laughs. One thing we don't do on Easter is lots of candy and when the kids already had enough play-doh and matchbox cars I was searching for goodies to put in there!
Last year I tried making egg shaped bath bombs and they were a huge hit with the kids! These bath bombs are infused with essential oils so they come with great calming and immune supporting benefits. The epsom salt helps the body detox and the fizzy citric acid is fun to play with. You can color them with natural dyes by using activated charcoal, pumpkin seed oil or beet powder. They are very easy to customize with what you have on hand.
I dreamed of the day I would get to create adorable clothes and playthings for my children. This halter top is one of the cutest pieces I've made and the first ever crochet pattern I ever wrote! It's super simple for even the most beginner to work up and can be done easily in an afternoon, even with kids asking for a snack every thirty minutes!
I'm a little hippy at heart and love to dress Little Miss like a boho baby. This halter was just the thing she needed. She's ready to hit the reggae concert with mama next month. Ha! Not really, that's date night with Farm Husband. ;)
I used a worsted weight acrylic yarn for the yellow halter at left but this pattern would work very well with a cotton yarn. You work this halter from the bottom up, finishing with the strings and adding the fringe last.
You can download the 12-24months pattern here or purchase the full pattern that goes up to size 6 here. If you are planning on using the free pattern to sell your handmade halter, please give credit to Three Seeds Farm and tag us or add our website! Thanks!
