Baby Cocoon/Pea Pod Set

I am really excited about this pattern series. Baby photo props are all the rage these days. I have a fantastic photography friend who takes stunning pictures. I made up these patterns for her to use, and decided to write up the pattern to sell. Check out her website here to see some of her beautiful photos.

This pattern has three different options: a cocoon, a pea pod and a matching hat. This is perfect for photographers or those who have newborns and want to take professional looking pictures of them.


You may purchase a direct download of the pattern for $5.75 here. I am happy to say this pattern has been tested and approved on Ravelry.

Pea Pod
Here is a little free sample of the hat pattern it uses a size K crochet hook and bulky weight yarn:

Foundation: ch4, join with sl st in first st to make a ring.
Round 1: ch2, 7 dc in ring, join to ch2 space at beginning of round with a sl st. (7 sts)
Round 2: ch2, *2 dc in next st, ch2. Repeat from * around, join to ch2 space at beginning of round with a sl st. (14 sts)
Round 3: ch2, *dc in next st, ch2, dc in ch2 space, ch2. Repeat from * around, join to ch2 space at beginning of round with a sl st. (14 sts)
Round 4: ch2, *dc in ch2 space, ch2. Repeat from * around, join to ch2 space at beginning of round with a sl st. (14 sts)
Repeat Round 4 until hat measures 5 inches from edge to center of hat.
To finish: Cut yarn and fasten off. Weave in the ends with a tapestry needle.

Baby Booties and Slippers

I have been super busy making gifts for friends and family as of late. It has been nice to take a break from designing and following a pattern for a while. Both of the patterns I followed are from Hook Cany Designs. I just love all of the designs. The shoes I made for my mom for Mother's Day were made with a jute sole, so can be worn around the house or outside as well. They are so comfy. I love the little baby bootie pattern. I made a little matching newsboy hat that is all knitted-no crochet brim. Now, I just need to write up the pattern when I get a spare moment.
