My aunt started a photography biz and I've been helping her on shoots. We have a newborn shoot coming up and she found a lot of stuff on etsy that she wanted. I told her I could make alot of the stuff. I tried out a baby bowl type pattern and a simple hat. I'm looking for a FREE pattern for a hammock or stork sling. I've been searching online all week and I haven't found anything yet. Pics are kinda crappy because I took them with my cell phone. Here are some of the patterns I used and intend on working up. I'll just add on as I go. I have more hats, soaker and another cocoon I need to make. If anyone has any other ideas of knit photo props, or good free hat patterns, PLEASE HELP! I have some handspun thick and thin coming in to work with. Seems like all the items on etsy are homespun. It's so expensive to buy and time consuming to make. UGG! Found a great seller on etsy that was reasonable. I guess I'm going to try to hand dye some of the yarn also. I'm still thinking about using wool or cotton or both?

Here's my bowl!! Had to use my nephews Dino. I used Wool Ease quick and thick since I stocked up at hobby lobby the last time they had a sale! I used 1 skein for the bowl and hat.

Great improv with the pix.
I'll keep my eyes open. Have you tried looking on Ravelry?

I sure have. I haven't seen anything for hammocks or slings. There are some paid patterns on ravelry so I might have to do that or should I say my aunt. LOL

OK well I was messing around and you could use the cocoon as a little stork pouch also as long as it's stretchy!
