Project #36 ytd……I used this pattern a basic (baby sweater/jacket or top)

Length 22-24 inches made extra long so when you snug up the bottom w/ ribbon you have enough length ( I just need to buy the ribbon and weave it in)

Opted to use buttons at the top area above the arm pits and use ties down the rest for quick access to diaper change..(still needed to attach the buttons)

Used Caron Simply Soft & it was not to heavy but way heavier the baby yarn so I will trying them in baby sport yarn for lightness and stretch……since it’s summer time…

I for the bunting
H for the half DC around the sleep sack
F for doing just the ties at 40 single crochet

 My doll is has a 20 inch chest/waist (approximately a size 12 month baby)…and it is 20 inches long from shoulder to toes….so I am sure it will fit a 3-6 month perfectly…

 P.S. Already have 2 requested from co-workers after seeing them for a total of 6 sleep sack…..

I couldn’t wait to share so I have a few things to finish up w/ it. LOL

Update: Used Lighter Hobby Lobby Baby Yarn (Baby Bee) this is sleep sack #2 I really love this one it’s super soft for baby and very stretchable extra bonus..Yarn Total Less then 5 oz…

Crochet Preemie-Newborn Bibs

Published May 12, 2016 by Jayashiangel

A co-worker was having some preemie grand babies (they were having triplets) so I wanted to create a quick bib (gift that I could whip up fast) and yet be very useful plus here in Arizona & where the parents live California, we have already above 90 *F so a baby blanket was out of the question as a gift….so bring on the baby bibs…

This is my go to baby bib pattern as it’s quick to use up scraps as well as fits various neck sizes & you could ruffles for a girl… I just love this pattern I have used before since it’s small for newborns but if I changed the hook size could be perfect for preemie’s….Gotta love my baby doll I think (he) takes great pictures…..

P.S. They had 2 baby boys and 1 little girl……
