This an easy to do process and makes it much simpler to crochet sleeves onto the garment.

    Hello Heather,
    I love your baby patterns. They are so easy to follow, and the garments are adorable. I make little outfits for newborn babies, and donate them to my local Hospital for their “New Beginnings” program. They like to give each new Mother a hand-made outfit for their new babies when they go home. And as a retired, Senior lady, it gives me something constructive to do, and allows me to be a useful part of society still. And I love knowing a brand new baby is wrapped up in something I`ve made for them. And I use almost exclusively your patterns for my crocheted outfits, sweaters and things. So I want to thank you for sharing them so freely. I do purchase on occasion as well. 😀
