School Spirit Beanie Crochet Pattern

Beat those winter blues and cold winds with this a FLEECE lined brimmed hat! It seems like everyone is wearing a beanie these days - me included, but I don't want to be wearing the same one everyone else is so I wrote my own pattern and use a different color scheme for each one I make. 

Get your very own copy of the crochet pattern on Ravelry!
Now YOU can make your own School Spirit hat! Those that tested the pattern loved the texture it creates and the stretchy brim makes for a great fit. At only $2.99 and with 3 patterns in 1 you are sure to have your very own unique hat at the next winter activity you attend!

The pattern comes with instructions to make this cozy fleece liner that has people grabbing them as fast as I can make them.

If you aren’t a crocheter and want to order a hat please contact me via Instagram or on Facebook by searching 4MamaBear. I take custom orders too. There is still lots of winter left here in BearCountry and I bet where some of you live too!

Free Valentine’s Day Printables for school

We love to do something other than candy for school Valentine’s Day at school and thanks to Pinterest there is never a shortage of inspiration! 

Click here to see some of the ideas that made it into the Blogosphere from our family’s Valentine’ is too hard to pick a favorite because they all bring back memories of when my kids were so itty bitty! This year I have a teen, a preteen, and a 1st grader but that won’t stop me from doing something punny for their class Valentine’s. 

I’m so glad I looked through my old posts because I’d completely forgotten about the easy teacher valentine idea and with TWO male homeroom teachers this year I was stuck on what to do! 

In my shop I sell bookmarks that make great teacher gifts too, but I have already given those to the teachers we have this year, but I’m pretty sure nobody will mind a second batch of mini muffins!

One of the posts I wrote showed a graphic I made for the You Rock! Valentine but it didn’t have a file you could download - so here it is for you - right click on the image and save the jpg file. 

Another graphic I made for felt bookmarks Julia and I made one year is now available as well. My felt Pinterest board is full of fun felt ideas (Including the wands Elsa and I made a few years ago for her preschool class.) 

I will have to dig through my photo archives for the felt super hero masks we made for the boys in Elsa’s preschool class. That is a post that unfortunately fell through the cracks and never got documented.

I will post this year’s edible idea once I get the rest of the supplies. It too will have a free graphic and best of all - no sewing!  

Now that is pretty sweet!

Beginner Knit Hat Pattern

I've been asked so many times if there is a pattern for the hats I make,  but I was too busy filling Christmas orders...
