Update On Giveaway Crochet Baby Sweater

I’m so excited to share news of what became of the baby sweater I made for the Craft Yarn Council course. I had to make a baby sweater as my final for the program.

Before making that final baby sweater, I made a tester-sweater to make sure I knew what I was doing. Here is the life-size crochet doll I made wearing the tester sweater. It was too small for her! But being a doll, she didn’t care. 😉

I usually only make clothes for my crochet dolls but I’ve been known to make a cami or two, and maybe even a sweater coat. 🙂 These items have only been worn by me or my family, never by anyone else. Sure, I’ve made hats, headbands and scarves that others have worn, but not actual clothes.

So imagine how elated and humbled I am that that baby sweater is being worn and loved by a beautiful toddler. A toddler that is not related to me and that I had never met. Squeeeeee! Her mom (over at sparkscrochet) entered my first (and only) giveaway.

She posted about an adorable C2C blanket she made and was kind enough to include a pic of her toddler wearing the sweater. I hope you check it out! I love her blog and think it deserves a shout-out AND I want to share my joy. Even if I someday end up making clothes that are worn by a gazillion people, it will never be the same as this two year old loving and wearing something I  made.

So thank you sparkscrochet for sharing that adorable pic of your baby girl wearing the sweater. 🙂

    • I’m so glad the picture brought her joy. The kids at work get so excited when I show them a picture on my blog or Instagram of something I made that they now own. It makes them feel like a celebrity. LOL Thanks again for sharing. We don’t often know what happens to our creations once we send them out into the world. With your post, you made my year. 🙂
