sweet Baby crochet

Part of my To-Do list for crochet is a neutral baby outfit for an RAK. She is expecting soon and does not know the sex so I found a cute Lollipop Romper that I can make in a tan colored cotton. It's a pattern I've used before and loved for it's old fashioned look and easily it can be made boysih/girly with little changes.

The next project is a hat, booties, jacket pattern for my younger sister's expected baby boy. The shower is this weekend so I have to hurry it along. I'll post more pictures later on.

While not a baby item, I am making a cloche hat in a buttercream colored merino/acrylic boucle as one of the game prizes. There is one row left and I need to attach a flower to the side.

The party favors include a crochet element as well. I've made up a recipe of instant coffee drink (coffee crystals, powdered creamer, sugar, and a touch of cinnamon) and put it in a sealed baggy, a plastic spoon dipped in chocolate also in a baggy, and put both of those in a crochet drawstring sachet.
