Bubble Baby Sweater Free Crochet Pattern

Bubble Baby Sweater

Don't you just love to snuggle with babies?  I know I do!  Back in 2012, I designed the Bubble Baby Sweater with comfort and warmth in mind.  I loved the texture of the stitch used and style of it when using a different color for the sleeves.  It reminds me of Leathermen jackets from High School and I think it would be a fun option to do in local school colors for baby photo props. It's a quick and easy project to work up whether it's for your own sweet little one or an opportunity to serve others.

I hope you'll enjoy this crochet pattern as much as I do.  

Be sure to add it to your favorites on Ravelry by giving it a "Heart"!

12 Days of Christmas Gifts with Your Name on Them

Can you believe that Christmas is just 12 days away???  This is  such a great time to look back through the year and ponder all the things we've been blessed with and are thankful for.  

If you're like me, you've stumbled here and there in the many avenues of life but have learned and grown a lot.  We've crocheted several projects together and I'm betting that all of us have 2 or more projects going right now.  It's in our blood!  Crochet is our way of giving a piece of our heart to those we love and at the same time, it's our chance to relax and unwind from everything that's thrown at us on a daily basis.

I'm also willing to bet that you're like me in the fact that I'm constantly making things for everyone and rarely take time to make something for myself....Am I right?  If so, we're going to fix that during the 12 Days of Christmas Event!
