Baby's Beautiful Crochet Christening Dress


            Baby's Beautiful Crochet Christening Dress 

Today, I am blogging about the beautiful baby's crochet christening dress I recently finished making for my granddaughter. 

        It's made from half double crochet and shell stitches.  One of these days, I will get some how to videos up on my youtube channel but in the meantime, I am too busy actually making things.

Cuddle and Coo Baby Blanket

Today, I am going to show you the beautiful Cuddle and Coo Baby Blanket I just made for my granddaughter.   

This is an easy pattern to crochet but still it did take me a few weeks to make.  I just crochet when I'm watching tv.

This is a free Redheart pattern.  Download, crochet, and enjoy the compliments.

Cozy Neutrals for Baby Knit and Crochet Patterns

Hello Readers.  Today, I am writing about Redheart's new Cozy Neutrals for Baby free downloadable knit and crochet patterns.

 This book has some really cute patterns in it.  Redheart suggests making these in neutral colors but there is no reason you can't make any of these items up in traditional or non traditional baby colors.

There are some nice patterns included in this book, including a cable blanket for knit and one for crochet that I am definitely thinking of making.  There are hats and sweaters and I love the little boy's v neck vest pattern.  How cute. 

My youtube channel, Afternoon Crochet,  is going to be devoted to the patterns I am making and how to make them up for yourself.  Eventually, I will figure out how to make a good video of myself crocheting.  This is a new venture for me so nothing is ready yet.  But, please stay tuned.

Soft Green Crochet Twin Stitch Baby Sweater and Baby Hat

Yesterday, I was cleaning out my old photographs and came across a photo of a crochet twin stitch baby sweater and matching baby hat that I had made for a charity donation a few years back.  
It came out beautifully.  

 Of course, now I can't find the pattern.  I only know I labeled the photo twin stitch.  
I do crochet for charity and I use free patterns I find on the web.  
If you are interested, I just started a youtube channel for this blog and I will be posting videos when I get the chance.
