I'm not sure what you call this thing, but I made one a few years ago for the first child of some friends. Now this is the second child and I had to make one kinda the same, but a little different. You can see better close ups of the yarn and scrapbook papers I used HERE,during the making of the earlier one. The lighting was much better in that first post too. I am forced to take these photos under horrible lighting because I did not finish it until after midnight. In the morning, it gets wrapped up and taken to the baptism.
Her middle name is Rose, so I had to use pink lettering! The first baby had green.
The ribbon is grosgrain and has baby colors of buttons on it. It works for this, I think.
This is a super fast gift to make for a baby! I used a baby set of scrapbook card stock (thick), punched holes around the edge and crocheted around the border, stuck on letters, and ran a ribbon through!
I understand the first child still has her name banner over her bed. I think she may have outgrown her crib! Well, I'm just happy they now have a matched set!
So there you have my latest crafting adventure!
