Baby Gift

This is a big summer (and fall!) for having babies in my extended family! waiting for my own baby can be a little . . . frustrating . . . so crochet has been a good distraction! I was able to finish this set for my cousin's baby, scheduled to arrive the first week of July!

The baby's momma requested blue and brown, so I stitched up this 0-3 month size set.

Brown cotton baby shoes with ankle straps, blue buttons, and verigated toe tops.

Blue cotton visor sun hat with verigated band and brown accents.
Hopefully she likes it!

Etsy Baby Shower!

Those of you who see my posts on Facebook may have heard about Etsy Baby Shower. Its a fun little, well, baby shower for Etsy users! If you use Etsy, are expecting, and have made at least 5 Etsy purchases, you can recieve 4 baby gifts from participating Etsy sellers with big hearts and talented hands! I am one of the summer recipients. I got some amazing items I plan to photograph and blog, and will do so after baby arrives! (More fun to have pictures with baby in them!) I also decided to be a participating shop and offered to do two baby gifts. I got assigned to give two gifts, one for a boy, one for a girl, for a momma to be of TWINS! I've been crazy busy filling orders before baby, but she's been so sweet and patient and the hats are done! I just need to package them up and take them to the box. Here's what they look like!
They're both 100% cotton sun hats and slightly smaller than my standard newborn size (becuase twins are tiny when they make their appearance!) but they should fit the babies for 3 months or more. Crochet stretches. :)
This is the boy one . . . . it's bright blue with a verigates yellow, blue, and green band with green borders.

Here is the girl hat! I used the same green for borders because I wanted them to "go together" without being too matchy. This one is bright pink with a pink, orange, yellow, and green band. I also added a yellow flower and ruffle brim.

These were so fun to plan and make! If you're interested in being a recipient or participating shop for Etsy Baby Shower, check out http://etsybabyshower.blogspot.com . It is so fun!
