As I said in my first post, a friend is having a baby girl and I feel compelled to just make a to of stuff for her. I have no job right now, why not use my creative juice to make adorable baby things?
It started with the idea of an adorable pixie hat. I found this one one Etsy that spurred my desire to make it. The adorable baby is definitely a selling point to. Have you ever seen a more adorable baby? I am not sure I have. I want it. That's besides the point. The hat is adorable also so I set out to knit one somewhat similar. Keep in mind, I am not a master knitter. I have knitted half a scarf, another half a scarf, a big hat, and that's about it. But having the hat experience of reading from a pattern, I felt a little more confident. So I searched for a pattern that looked cute and also measurements for the size of a baby head and came up with something. It's still not totally complete, but getting there. Here's a peek at it:
Then. I found this tutorial for crocheted baby booties. Super cute right? But I realized that she is going to be born in June, and crocheted boots in June? Poor thing will die from sweating. So ballet flats was more the idea. I used the tutorial for the first half of the shoe, up until the point that it started making the boot part. I searched around for some cute ideas and found these ones. So basic shoe from the tutorial, plus the ruffle idea, and I came up with these (the second one has yet to be completed):
A baby quilt is soon to come too :) I figure I have a bit of time to get that done, still need time to find the perfect matching fabric!
