    Thanks to you i have learned how to crochet and managed to make this hat as my second project, i have looked through your website at the patterns and was wondering if you could do a video for the matching summer dress and for the Mary Jane baby shoes, i have tried following over tutorials but they all seem to rush though or dont have the written pattern to print out and i love the fact with your that you have both. Thank you so much for your inspiration
