I’ve had a few messages and emails asking for the pattern variation for the bear blanket buddy, so here I am! I apologise that this took a while to upload. We’ve just moved into a flat at the beginning of the month, and for anyone who’s moved home- you’ll know how much of your time that takes! Then we didn’t actually get an internet connection until last week. And to pile on top of that, I had to work in the weekend. So it’s been slow progress in this Little Pomegranate’s world (with the main bane of my life being dining chairs! But I’ll rant about that some other time), but I finally got around to finishing off the pattern for the bear and the matching booties.
Now, the booties have also been a bit of a pickle. I wrote down the pattern as I made it up making the first bootie. I then followed my pattern for the second bootie of the set, but found I had to make some changes… I then got confused whilst typing it up, so made another bootie following the original pattern, which turned out fine…So now I have an odd bootie in my craft box. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a baby to hand to measure the bootie against (and I don’t think they’d take it kindly if I started taking my crochet into work and trying it on random babies on the ward…though it is tempting…). But I did post it off to my brand new niece and the feedback was that they fit perfectly! So I think I sized it just right for a newborn. Hopefully she doesn’t have abnormally large/small feet. Funnily enough, feet are a contentious issue in our household….with one of us being nicknamed ‘frog feet’. The controversial part is who the nickname should be assigned to.
Anyway, now I’ve given my friend Sunshine something to mock us about…back to cute baby feet. I hope you like the pattern! I thought the oversized bow was super cute, and the whole set of bear and booties just perfect for a little girl. Let me know how you get along. As you can see, I do make changes to any errors you guys find.
