Welcome to my blog about yard sales, crochet, my family and my life. A yard sale map in one hand and a crochet hook in the other.

Serenity Gown

Finished the secret gift for my sister-in-law. Or I thought it was secret! I would have been posting earlier if I had known. Anyway, here's the christening gown she asked me to make for her daughter's baby that is due in a couple months. Pattern here. Size 10 thread, size 7 hook.


 She wanted a pink set but there wasn't enough pink thread at the store. So I added a pink ribbon instead of white and pink bows on the bodice and bonnet.
 You can't see very well in these pictures, but there are clear beads on the points above the ribbon.

I forgot she wanted booties also, so I'll try to find a pattern tonight.
