Introduction: Newborn Flower Hat With Booties
This adorable little hat is made with Filati Cervinia Genova sport yarn from Italy. It is 100% acrylic and is machine washable and dryable. I started this hat from a pattern I got online a few years ago and then I've adjusted it to my own liking. I designed the flowers and leaves myself. The booties are from a free pattern that came in the mail. It was from Vanna's Afghan and Crochet Favorites,1995 Oxmoor House, Inc. PatternPak 85050-E. and again I designed the flowers and leaves myself. This set was made to fit babies size 0 to 6 months old.
I made this set to sell on my website over at etsy. But the reason I've been making the baby hat and booties sets is because, me and some women in my church are making these sets to send to a Right to Life Center. The pastor in our church announced that we would be collecting money all this money for the Right to Life Center and us women decided to make some little babies things to send along with the money.
