Angel Rosebud Set

I was browsing Ravelry's FO the other day and came across a beautiful little Easter Jacket made by Amy from Expressive Silence. I fell in love with the little rosebuds she added as trim to the baby jacket, and wrote her to ask how she did it. She was generous in sharing her directions. You can see the baby jacket I'm talking about here. Isn't it just gorgeous?!!?

That little jacket inspired me to make a baby set of my own, with rosebud trims on all the pieces. This is the Newborn Shelly Hat I made using the pattern found at Blkosiner's Book Blog, and the pattern is here, with my added rosebud trim.

I found this lovely newborn baby shoe pattern at Gardener's Ramblings. The pattern for the Easy Baby shoes is here. I changed the rosebud trim a little bit to make it more of a ring, and added more definition to the leaves.

This is a view of the back of the Angel Shell Dress that I decided on to complete the set. I found the pattern for this darling newborn dress at Heartfelt Angels. You can make your own Angel Shell Dress using the pattern here.

And last, but not least, here is the whole set together. I think I am getting way too many baby girl things made, and should probably start concentrating on baby boy clothes. I think I saw a newborn sailor set the other day, maybe I'll go searching for that one next!

Happy hooking!
