Crocheted Pinafore and Diaper Cover

Since I have a baby girl coming shortly, I grabbed some pastel yarn I had in my basement and decided that rather than buying a cutsie outfit to bring her home in, I would make one. The beauty of baby clothes is that they are small, so whipping out something to fit a newborn isn't a super time-consuming project! I scoured the Internet for a girly, lacy, outfit that looked doable for my summer baby, and this pattern was perfect.

The Angel Wings Pinafore pattern is a lot easier than it looks. I would rate it an intermediate skill level. The lacy texture and ruffled sleeves make it look more complicated than it really is. I followed the pattern pretty much exactly, using sport weight yarn and a size H hook. It is crocheted in one piece, and I was able to complete it in one day.

Once this was done I really wanted to make a diaper cover to match and I came across this Newborn Diaper Cover pattern. I didn't follow the pattern exactly, but used it as a general guideline for my own cover. I "frilled" it up by going around the edges with picot stitches to create a ruffled edge. I think in retrospect the cover could have been wider in the straps and the backside, but overall I'm pretty happy with it.










UPDATE: My daughter has arrived! Here she is wearing her pinafore!

    L’extérieur de ce fourre-tout Michael Kors est un cuir métallisé de laiton froncé et froncé. Si vous connaissez les sacs à main Michael Kors, vous savez que ce cuir sera doux et souple. Les deux grandes poignées supérieures sont attachées au sac avec quelques centimètres de chaînes dorées, puis les moitiés supérieures des bretelles présentent le même cuir couleur laiton.
