I couldn't resist creating something to celebrate the Christmas spirit. So here are my new Christmas Baby Santa Booties:
They are easy to make and absolutely adorable when you're finished. They take about 2-3 hours to make. So, if you want a cute photo prop for you Christmas pictures or if you just want some festive baby booties, these are for you. You could also try a variety of colors to create some fun winter baby booties!
It was brought to my attention by one of my wonderful pattern testers that there is a little detail in the crocodile stitch that if done incorrectly can ruin the look of the piece.
The crocodile stitch is basically a two row repeating stitch where the 2nd row is worked in front of the 1st row (instead of above). The 1st row is a simple v-stitch row. The 2nd row is the "scale" row. When working the 3rd row (2nd v-stitch row), the v-stitches that land between scales should catch the scale to secure it in place.
Here is my little help photo explaining this part of the stitch:
This is the Simply Sweet Car Seat / Stroller Blanket:
No more falling blankets from your car seat or stroller, the straps go right through!
This car seat blanket is simple and cute. It works up easily and includes instructions for 2 optional stripe patterns. Perfect for a girl or boy. Works with any standard infant car seat and most strollers and toddler car seats.
I came up with this blanket because I have, on more than one occasion, had blankets fall from my stroller as I was walking without noticing it. When I have noticed it (blocks later), I found it very frustrating and irritating to have to retrace my steps looking for it. Not to mention when your baby is in the back seat and cries because she/he has kicked off their blanket and can't find it.
