A good friend of mine is expecting, and I am beyond excited for her! She advised that she had found cute little newborn diapers for her photo shoot after he’s born, and just needed a hat to complete the look. So I set out on my task to make it happen.
I couldn’t find a pattern that quite fit the look I was going for, so I set out to make one happen by putting a few different things together. First the hat – I decided a simple newborn hat would work, and just changed colours every 2 rows to give the stripe look. My favourite go to pattern for basic newborn hats can be found on Ravelry HERE by Athena de la Rosa Designs. This is a free download, and a great starting point for people who are starting to make newborn outfits.
I then created the applique using Aunt Lydia’s cotton thread and a pattern I purchased HERE from GoldenLucyCrafts on Etsy. This is a REALLY well written pattern and super easy to follow!
I was so happy with the final outcome – it fit my vision perfectly! Now just to be patient for the little one’s arrival so I can see it in use!
