I made these beauties for my sweet baby niece Olivia. I knew right away that this little girl needed frilly handcrafted things. I was so right. She is quite the princess being the only baby girl in a house with two older brothers.
I came across a pattern for a crochet baby cloche on one of my favorite blogs, Aesthetic Nest. I joke that I want to be like her when I grow up. She is so fun! She puts together amazing parties for her daughter's birthdays, as well as, holiday parties. She sews gorgeous dresses for her daughters too.
I bought a pdf pattern for the baby ballet slippers from mompetitviolon on Etsy. They are easy to crochet and so so so cute!! I accented the crochet flowers with vintage buttons that I picked up from a local antique store.
As far as the blanket goes I made it up as I went but the main pattern was a large granny square and then I finished it with treble crochet stitches and a shell pattern.
Handmade gifts are so personal and crochet is classic. I look forward to seeing Olivia wrap her baby girl up in this blanket one day.
