Crochet Thread Floral Baby Bonnet and Bootie Set-Pink & Black


I am SO excited about the colors I used
this time with the Baby Set in the
Leisure Arts #3225.  

And I will continue
to experiment with colors for it,
so STAY TUNED!

This is how it all started:



I chose this one:



And here are the end results of
this thread crochet decision:



The bonnet is assembled in an interesting
manner, beginning with a rectangle and
working decreases to create the back.





I think the black ribbon sets off
the flower motifs nicely!



In the words of Lightning McQueen
(which my boys just happen to be
watching right now),

KA-CHOW!!!

I was SO excited about this color
combo that I made TWO sets.

One for Allison Kay,
my new great-niece.

And one for Eliza Jane,
daughter of a family friend.

Out of the great loves of my life,
thread crochet and fresh babies
are in the top 10 list.

So when I can combine both,
YIPPEE!!!

As I said, STAY TUNED
for future color installments.

Up next, PURPLE COMBO!

(All thread is size 10
used with a size 7 hook.)

  4. The bright colors really make the outfit 'snap'. One of the girls I gave it to was so excited because one of the outfits she got matched the colors almost exactly. So fun.
