Actual Crochet

This is my beautiful, sweet, very dear friend “C”  nine months pregnant.

She gained like 6 ounces during pregnancy.  OK maybe more but she still fit in size TWO!  X-SMALL!  maternity clothes.  If she wasn’t the nicest, sweetest, most gracious person I know I’d probably hate her.  Kidding! Sorta.

And yes, she always looks this great.  Always.



Just a couple days after that photo was taken she brought home this tiny (5lb), sweet, Southern Angel.   See how great “C” looks?  This photo was probably taken after the four A.M. feeding and she looks better than I would  after a million dollar make-over.

But I digress.  So! she brings this Sweet Angel home and slips her in one of her sweet new baby outfits.  And that’s when she realized something was terribly wrong.  Not with the baby, with the baby’s wardrobe!  This brand new, precious Southern Belle was seriously lacking in head bows!



It was so embarrassing Baby Girl didn’t even want to show her face in public.  This child needed some bows.  Big Southern Bows and she needed them  STAT!   What’s a Mama to do?   Well she did the only thing she could do…put out a “Hair Bow Emergancy” call on Facebook of course!


As soon as I heard the Call I grabbed a hook, dove into my yarn stash and logged into Ravelry for a Big Hair Bow pattern and came up with this.  >>>

With Mama’s enthusiastic approval I made a few more.


A Proper Southern Belle will have a matching bow for every outfit, don’t ya know :)



Then I made plans to deliver them.  I just couldn’t wait to hold that bitty Baby Girl!   And hold her I did.  For the entire visit.  What a sweet, sweet baby she is.  Baby Girl loved her new bows!










But I wasn’t the only friend who answered the Big Hair Bow Emergancy Call.  Take a look at these Fascinators!


Isn’t she precious?     I’ll have to make some more for Baby Girl and maybe some matching ones for Mama and Big Sister.  New Baby Smell.  Got to be the best smell in the world :D


  1. Wow! Linda, what a great job you did! You sure know how to accessorize! So pretty and girly. Love ‘em!
