Baby Mittens

With all the adorable baby hats I keep coming across, I decided I should settle on a baby mitten pattern that I could make work to match any and all of them for gifts and photo props. I wanted something that was quick and easy to make, but also looked good when it was finished. The result of my searching? This…

Super simple, and absolutely adorable, its a great addition to any gift you are currently working on. They are quick to make, working up in the time of your favourite television show, so don’t worry about deciding last minute to add it to whatever gifts you are working on! I have done many of these now and they always look great when done. The only difference between the pattern, and my finished project, is that I always make a point of tying a small knot in each end of the tie after its been woven through the wrist part to avoid any chance of it unravelling with wear.

The pattern can be found on Bella Bambina Knits for free HERE. I hope that this helps many of you as much as it has me!

Newborn Anchor Hat

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!

Newborn Turtle Photo Prop

One of the things I see crocheted and loved upon most often as of late are all the adorable photo props people are now making for newborn photos! There are more patterns than anyone could blink an eye at available; everything from dogs and cats to firemen and pilots! I recently made this adorable turtle hat and shell set.

This was a rather easy pattern to follow, and had a great final result! I purchased this pattern from Tanyas Tangles. You can find it in her Ravelry store HERE. Also check out her Etsy store HERE or follow along on her Facebook page HERE for more updates and new patterns!

Newborn photo props are pretty quick to make, and make a great baby shower gift for the expecting mom in your life! I hope that you have as much fun with this pattern as I did!
