Welcome to the world Virginia Marie!!

Our daughter was born ten days ago!!  I’ve finally gotten around to making and update post for you all in the form of a ginormous pattern showcase too!

      Here she is! 🎀💜🍼 getting all cozy and settled in at home a few days ago at a week old. 

This blanket it the very first thing i ever crocheted for her.   The blanket is a bunch of African Flower Hexagons assembled together. The pattern is by Heidi Bears Crochet and can be found HERE

And here she is just hours old!  Getting all snugly in this cute Newborn Apple Hat. This pattern is a Cream of The Crop Crochet original and can be found HERE

       And now for the debut of her nursery and nursing nooks.  I’ve been posting progress pics on my Instagram account but here I’ll be linking where to find the patterns I used to set it all up with!

Let’s start in the corner where I set up a recliner and cozy supplies for breastfeeding!  The hammock is by Dvortygirl and can be found HERE

I whipped up this dragon fly mobile using the dragonfly appliqué pattern created by JKW Designs. The pattern for the appliqué can he found HERE

I had to match the darling mobile with a blanket to keep my baby and my boobies warm during feedings so I of course went with the ever popular radiating Dragonflies Throw by Pattern Paradise. This pattern can be found HERE

And now onto the Nursery Nook!

The blanket is the same blanket as I mentioned above using the African Flower Hexigon by Heidi Bears. 

Making Mandalas has always been some of my favorite things to crochet!  Top Left Mandala i made using Sophie’s Mandala in size Medium. Left side below is the size small of Sophie’s Mandala which both are designed by Look At What I Made. The pattern can be found HERE. Right hand side is the Star Bright square by Stitch11. I  edged the square with picots. The pattern for the Star Bright square can be found HERE

Lastly I made a ton of flowers and strung them up into a bunting. I used my very own Fast Flower pattern. You can find that pattern HERE
I’m beyond in love with this little girl. 🎀💜🎀💜🎀Her brother and daddy are too. I’m happy I get to share her with all of you and I’m so glad I have crochet in my life so that my babies can be cozy and my eyes have some crochet candy to gaze over too.
