A gift for a special baby

A Baby Gift

This present just came together. I had a vision about the gray yarn and the red buttons--it just had to be. Especially the red buttons. My vision was very specific about those. And then I was at Crafty Planet and the fabric was just there, waiting for me. Gnome. Houses. Easiest fabric decision I ever made.

A Baby Gift

I originally cut out pale green flannel for the lining, but I quickly corrected that with white minky dot.

This is just the sweetest little pattern. I hope it fits the babe someday! Right now she is teensy. But they do grow quick you know.
