This was made for a friend who knows I love to crochet and knit
! She gave me specifications of natural gender neutral yarn and wooden buttons. As luck would have it I have wooden buttons
and I had an idea of what kind of yarn I'd be using. This here is Vanna Choices Oatmeal in Worsted weight.
I'm pretty picky when it comes to working up projects.. I guess you could call me Goldilocks - everything has to be just right lol. After working up the base 4 different ways I was glad to have spawned a kind of bowled base.
I did put finger to keyboard and typed up the pattern, so should one be requested again I can whip up another one like it easy peasy
Also, I found out through researching different styles of baby cocoons a few reasons these are sought after as of late. Not only do they make amazing baby picture props but they keep babies warm!
Nursing a baby while swaddled in a cocoon helps keep babies hands inside and their lil toesies warm too! So mommy only has to concern herself with feeding because baby is snug as a bug in a rug
. This is what I call win - win
Both mommy and baby are happy
I love it when my friends request items because it shows they have faith in my talents
and I know the items I make will be used and cherished for years to come
I hope you like the pics - no baby to add to the photos was handy (lol
) so I figured I'd make the photos as pretty as possible
. I hope you like them!
