Baby Hat, Booties and Bunny

Jerry is an elementary school teacher.  At the end of his day he also homeschools students in their homes.  This year he is homeschooling a high school student through a program set up by his school district to help young women who become pregnant to graduate.  Her baby is due tomorrow so Jerry had asked me if I could make her a present.  I was delighted to do so!

So I found patterns in my pattern file and made the Baby Hat and Booties. It just seemed like part of the present was missing so I added a bunny.  I found the Baby Hat pattern years ago on Crochet Spot.  The pattern for the booties is from Bevs Country Cottage.  The Bunny pattern is from the Lion Brand Yarn Company site.

I am not a fast "doer" and the bunny took me all evening until 12:30pm.......but it was completely worth it.  Jerry thought they were all really nice.

The white piece on his body is supposed to represent a heart....
A nice project for a nice rainy weekend......yes....we finally got rain!

Definitely a blessing to give.....

  4. These are cute and for a wonderful gift! I would love it if you would consider linking to Busy Monday at A Pinch of Joy, a Sunday through Thursday link party for ideas that make life easier, better and more fun! (And the big red X you mentioned above - just means the linker can delete the post if needed for some reason. No one else sees it but the person who linked.)
