I can't wait to see a baby girl in this outfit that I crocheted for a friend's granddaughter!

But until January when the little one is due to make an entry into this world I just have this pic in my granddaughter's 18 inch doll.  LOL

It started with a pic of these booties on FaceBook.
Photo: "A little girl fills a place in her father's heart that he never knew was empty"
And what happens quite often is you can find a picture plastered all over the internet without a pattern to be found.
So.....I improvised and used one of my favorite patterns to start the booties.
and when I finished the booties
they cried out for a dress to wear with them so I found a pattern on called Newborn Angel Gown Set.
I searched and searched but this one is the one I kept coming back to and I decided this baby girl to be born in January would look absolutely beautiful in this.  And it just seemed to match with the booties I had made and the bonnet I had in mind to go with the booties.  I shortened it to be able to show off the booties. And did a some minor tweaking here and there.

And I had made a bonnet a couple years ago from a pattern I purchased but when I Googled it I came across this, "The item "Daisy Bonnet (pattern)" by GlowsCrochetCreation cannot be viewed because it has expired."

I have made several of these and was always happy with them.  I would share my copy of the pattern but it is copyrighted, even the pic but I think since I am trying to give credit to the original pattern maker and then showing a pic of what I made I hope I am doing nothing unlawful.  Here is one that I made awhile back.
Photo: Just had to share a bonnet I made!!  Thanks Tammy! for sharing this pic of your granddaughter! Thanks to Nature's Song for the pattern!
and another one
Photo: First try with new pattern.  Daisy Bonnet, pattern by Glow's crochet creations.  I wish I had a model for it!

Here is a close up of this most recent one that I made to match the booties and dress.
To make the "rosebuds" on the booties and bonnet I just did a row of sc in the bonnet, ch 1 turn and do this across row of sc for rosebuds  *2 sc, (1 sc, 2 dc, 1 sc) in next sc, drop loop from hook and put in first sc of last 4 st, grab loop and pull through sc and pull tight, ch 1 and continue across row of sc*.  For the booties I used a single strand but for the bonnet I used a double strand of pink to make them stick out more.

I totally enjoy projects like these!  But I do find myself crocheting, pulling lots of stitches out and crocheting again.  

PS:  I found where I first saw the pattern for the bonnet on FB but it doesn't look like she is very active anymore on FB.

Here is the info that I found there to order the pattern and by the looks of it I may even have been lucky enough to win one of her patterns!  Lucky me!

"Im now taking presale orders for $3.99 please email me at for your order."


  1. Those booties are so adorable! Makes me wish I had grandbabies to smother in love... and crochet...

    1. My sons are done having grandkids for me but I am lucky enough to have friends that need crocheted items.

  2. I made a similar dress for the American girl doll.

    1. Helen, do you have pics to share of the dress? And do you have a blog I can follow? Thanks for commenting here!
