BABIES are such fun to dress
The front cover contains a whimsical view of babies modeling some of the hat selections contained in the book.
This advertising promo is on the inside front cover. Since it's also adorable, I wanted to share it with you along with the patterns.

I've had a great time looking through this booklet. I really like all the variations on the booties and the infants suit and the sailor dress are a must have. Oh ... if only I had a grandchild or knew how to either knit or crochet. (coming soon, the crocheting).
I've listed the patterns in this book individually should you be interested -- just follow the links under the pictures.
So, what one is your favorite ?
