for a very tiny friend

I mentioned before that I have three friends and one sister all due to have babies shortly after Christmas.  Well, one of those dear little babes decided to come early.  Way early.  Like 12 weeks early.  Sweet baby Rosalee is doing well now — we visited her last weekend and delivered the first of the Handmade Baby Goodies.

Yes, baby Rosalee is a girl, and yes, this is perhaps a lot of brown for a little girl.  I didn’t want it to be too girly, and also the Gap t-shirt I used to make the pants  and hat was soooo soft it was begging to become baby clothes.  I used the directions in The Creative Family to make the pants, and Amanda Soule’s hat pattern from the Mama to Mama project.  I was hoping the heart applique added enough of a feminine touch.

Well, the tally of Pregnant Women I Know has actually gone  up a couple numbers recently (I think we’re at 5 now), so I’m pretty sure you will be seeing lots of baby crafts around here in the months to come!
