Baby Gift



I finally finished a baby gift I've been working on for weeks. It took shape around some wonderful goldfish fabric I found on repro depot. I wanted the colors to be fairly masculine (relatively speaking), and not the typical baby hues. It was also a great way to get through some of my odds and ends of yarn.

The pattern is really easy. I used the general shape I developed for the sleep sack I made in the Crochet to Go Deck. Each strap (2 side, 2 top) has two button holes to allow for a better fit.

My coworker Fabian is getting this. It's his first baby. He just finished this amazing mural for the baby's room.

I just stumbled upon your blog through a google search. I absolutely LOVE this sleep sack. I've started making one but am unsure of the right measurements. Would you mind commenting back with where I can find this pattern? Thank you!!

I'm going to put together a more thorough pattern for this soon, but a few guidelines for immediate use:

It's a 34in wide x 27 in rectangle, folded in half to create the sack. Any stitch would work (sc, dc, or something more decorative like what I did here). The top edge is worked in sc and dec-sc to create a more snug fit under the baby's arms. I attached to short shoulder straps, and two side straps.
