What's that you ask? Oh just a tiny glimpse of a gift for a beautiful baby joining us soon :)
I was able to attend a baby shower today for a wonderful couple who are expecting a little girl in June and I just couldn't resist making a few things.
Isn't it a sweet little set? A soft cuddly toy to chew on and cuddle, a dress to look adorable in, and a sun hat to lounge around in :)
This little dress I think will fit to about 3 months, I'm sorry I didn't take the time to write down the pattern but I know I used Bernat Handicrafter Cotton so it would stay cool in the warm months, or if I completely misjudged the sizing, it would be nice over a long sleeved shirt in the fall (see, dual-purpose!!!!!)
I'm pretty pleased with how the little hat turned out! I used a pattern from my favorite crocheter Sarah I used the 0-3 month size but with a 4.00mm hook. After I completed the hat according to the pattern I added three increasing rows (row 1: 5 dc, 2 dc in next st. around. row 2: 6 dc, 2 dc in next st. around. row 3: 7 dc, 2 dc in next st. around) and then added a sc row to finish the edge.
It has just a little brim to keep the sun off those new little ears and beautiful eyes.
This little bunny is even cuter in person. I got the pattern from Bernat and I have a feeling I'll be making a few more as go to baby gifts! It was quick to come together and I love the simplicity of this little "bun" as Claire-bear calls it :)
So what did you think? I'm still a little nervous little missy won't ever get to wear the dress because I didn't follow a pattern, but at least it looks good on display!!!
Thanks for stopping by!
