More Babies

This baby hat I made not for anyone specific but to get ahead on the baby boom which is occurring in the people I know. The bonnet came from a pattern called Angel Kisses Dress which was designed by Anna. The bonnet size is newborn, the only problem I had was trying to figure out how much thread I would need to make the complete project, I still haven’t made the whole outfit so the question is still unanswered.

The little girl who will be wearing has already been delivered and is healthy so I am pleased.

This is another outfit for a member of my personal baby boom group. This was a challenging project, first I had to find a non-feminine outfit which is harder than it sounds. The pattern is called Little Boy Blue designed by Shifio; I also had to consider that we live in Arizona so it will not get too terribly cold. Here is an overview of the whole outfit.

This little hat I had to make twice the first one was too small.

This sweater was the most time consuming part of the outfit.

I had a fun time trying to create a theme for the outfit and wound up with bears. These cute little bear buttons were so darn cute I had to use them.

Even though I added buttons, I upon consultation with my mother thought the shape of the bear buttons would make them difficult to button up; therefore they became false buttons just for looks. I added snaps under the buttons to make the top easy to put on the little boy.

This bear patch goes with the bear buttons and bear theme.

When I got to the shorts the top of the shorts had a design that would suggest a draw string or ribbon to hold the shorts on the little baby, but this is a boy outfit so I got a length of rope that is classy looking.

Here is a close up just because, I had to knot the ends unfortunately for the edges didn’t sear though I was told that they would, oh well.
These booties also caused me a great deal of frustration. I generally crochet tightly so the first bootie was noticeably smaller than the second. I then pulled out the bootie yarn of the larger bootie and remade it but it turned out larger as well. I then made a completely new bootie and it matched the larger size one so I finally had the two booties.

Ok I got tagged by Ccat. I am supposed to do the following:
1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself: some random, some weird.
3. Tag 3 people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them).
4. Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment at their blogs.

1st 7 facts about myself: Some random, Some weird. (you can choose which is which)
1. I have 4 brothers and no sisters.
2. I can not spell worth anything, thank goodness for spell check.
3. I just took a stain glass class with my father (it was a lot of fun).
4. Around finals I go on a frantic creative binge like I have all the time in the world when the opposite is true.
5. My worst recurring nightmare is that I lose my teeth. (I usually happens before a visit to the dentist)
6. I’m probably the only college student that goes to bed early Friday night.
7. I’m scared of the GRE.

Tami, the GRE is a really big deal to get into graduate school it is like the SAT was to getting into college. I thought I was done with standardized tests when I got into college, but to be a speech therapist I have to get into grad school. :( OH well, such is life
