I instantly grabbed hook and yarn............
not yet knowing whether the baby will be a boy or a girl, I chose a soft sunny yellow.
With that I made these pieces...........
adding a white scallop to the arm edges
and to the neck
and it all came together..........
like this. Sweet, simple.........but plain.
I wanted what I made for the baby to be "unique"
so I cross stitched this sweet little chick
chose a floral print fabric to match...........
and created a sweet little pocket for the sweater.
I also added a cross stitch button I had made
and attached it to the neck.
Now the sweater looks even more sweet and a little more unique.
I made and embroidered a baby bib to go with it.
The baby will arrive during the fall, so I made this a 6 month size so that it can fit during the winter and early spring.
I hope I might get a photo of the baby wearing it at one point.
How about you?
When you hear about a new arrival.......what do you like to give?
Something handmade?........or something precious and new?
I would love to hear!
