Jayna Christine Little Princess Set

Jayna Christine

Jayna Christine was born early March 12th to two of my friends, Andrew and Colleen.

During the months leading up to her birth they spent a lot of time preparing their home for their first baby’s arrival, including redoing their guest room to become a nursery. I knew they were planning on decorating with an antique pink, but I really wanted to pick the best color yarn to go with their theme, so I asked Andrew for some ideas to surprise Colleen.

Since they were repainting the room as a part of their preparations he told me he would bring the paint swatch they chose from so I could see the exact color! It worked out really well since we both teach at Music Matters and would be able to give it to me one day at work.

With the paint swatch in hand I took a trip to the store and was able to find a perfect match!

Awhile back I had found a cute pair of baby girl shoes by Two Girls Patterns and knew that I wanted to use the Simply Summer Sandals crochet pattern for their baby girl. Using tan yarn for the sole and a shimmering white for the main part of the shoe, I added a simple flower to the top using the antique pink yarn. Once completed I knew they would be just perfect for her!

After the shoes were made, an idea began to form in my mind for the finished look of the blanket. I had so many baby blanket patterns saved, but nothing was quite right…so I designed my own!

Using a simple mesh sort of pattern, I made the body of the blanket in shimmering white yarn to match the sandals. Once it was finished I made long chains of pink and weaved them through the holes created in the blanket. To completely finish the blanket off, I picked up the white yarn again and added a frilly shell stitch around the edge. The beautiful result of these stitch combinations was exactly what I had in mind!

To complete their baby girl’s set, Jayna needed one more thing: something for her head. Since she was born in spring I figured a headband would be better than a thick hat. The only thing was, I had never made a baby headband before! Keeping sweet and simple in mind, I designed a plain band using the shimmering white yarn and added a matching pink flower to it. A single white pearl added just the right touch to the flower center!

This baby blanket, sandals, and headband have become one of my favorite crochet sets, and seeing Colleen’s reaction when I gave them to her was priceless. Jayna is such a sweet baby girl, and I loved seeing her wearing her headband!
