Vintage Ripple Stitch

Here is day 1 to learning this awesome stitch. Now I stumbled upon this beautiful stitch on Facebook when it was posted by Edinir Aparacido Bento. It came complete with this easy to use chart! Right? Wrong! This chart is almost impossible to follow if you want to learn this stitch, so I decided to share with you what I did in a four-day tutorial. Day 1, Row 1: Chain 32. Beginning with second ch from hook, sc in the next 4 ch, 3 sc in the next ch, *sc in the next 4 ch, skip 2 ch, sc in the next 4 chk, 3 sc in next ch*. Repeat from * to * until last 4 ch. Sc in last 4 ch, ch 1 turn. Your work should look like this. Good work! See you tomorrow for day 2 lesson 2!

Copyright Infringement

What do you about that? A Chinese company purchased 1 of my bonnets a while back, decided to mass produce the bonnets, but stole the image that I use for my online store to display what the bonnet looks like. The pattern is not mine, but the image of the bonnet is. I tried reporting it to the online store that the company is using, but for some reason, my complaint won't go through (hmmm go figure). Does anyone know what I should do about this? I want to thank one of my loyal customers for bringing this to my attention.

Introducing Bonnets and Booties for Tiny Babies

I'm excited to now offer in my Etsy store, bonnets and booties to fit small (2.5 to 4 pounds) and tiny (1-2 pounds) babies. I often get requests for preemie sizes and hear a lot of concerns about the difficulty in finding preemie clothes. Take a look at the pictures of the bonnets and booties. The largest bonnet and booties are for full-term babies. The middle bonnet and booties are for smaller, lower weight babies with head circumference up to approximately 11 inches and foot length up to approximately 2-1/2 inches. The smallest bonnet and booties are for preemies with head circumference up to 9 inches and foot length up to 1-3/4 inches. They're offered in a variety of standard colors and of course, custom colors are encouraged. I will be experimenting with new designs in bonnets, booties, dresses and rompers. Thank you all for stopping by.
