“Nothing inspires handmade needlework more than a new baby's arrival, and this book of designs for Beautiful Baby Clothes is sure to please the mother-to-be as well as provide endless gift ideas for friends and relatives.”
"Complete with dozens of photographs, easy-to-follow diagrams and step-by-step instructions, Beautiful Baby Clothes assures expert and beginner alike the joy of making both traditional and modern styles that are geared for today's easy care. Sized for babies from the newborn to the one-year-old, the patterns are divided into sections-clothes to crochet, knit, sew or embroider-and include such lovely and practical items as Afghan Coat; Snowsuit; Baby Shawl; Irish Lace for Little Girls; Hat, Mittens and Bootees Set; Norwegian Sleeper; Bath Cape and Wash Midden; Bandanna variations; Cross-Stitch Shirt; and even a last minute project."
"To make the projects as simple as possible there is a chapter that outlines the different kinds of equipment that can be used, defines terms and symbols, and explains how to make the correct size, read the charts and instructions, and enlarge the diagrams to actual size. In addition, there are tips on washing knitted and crocheted garments as well as handy advice on where to purchase any materials you cannot find in your local stores."
"In many of the patterns, several different variations are suggested so that the reader can add that creative touch that makes handmade baby clothes so precious and unique."
