Baby Flower Bracelet ------------------------------- An Early Morning Amusement

Here's a little something I whipped up this morning as I thought about how I REALLY need to update my BurryBabies website. I'm almost finished, but who has the time to get it to the last stages - proofreading, adding new photos and descriptions, rewriting text, connecting all items to Paypal?

So instead, I was thinking about how people now buy beaded bracelets for their babies and how I NEVER would have put one of those on my three babies -- too much danger from chewing on beads and choking!

So I crocheted this little flower bracelet that has no beads, no buttons, no snaps -- just 100% cotton yarn and a lot of love. Look: I'm a frustrated non-grandmother. How do you think Burry Babies got started anyway?

Here's a photo of the little flower bracelet. If there's a baby you love, it's up for sale on Etsy for only $4.00!

Hope you have a happy day today!
I think I'll just go make some more baby bracelets.

That is so so so cute. Does it have elastic in the middle to keep it on babies wrist?

Glad you liked it. I didn't put elastic in because I didn't want to risk it being too tight. I could use a pony tail elastic, but the crochet chain will keep it on OK by itself.

I forgot to mention, Lisa, that this bracelet is totally washable by hand. If it's just rinsed out in warm water the crocheted chain shrinks back to size again. I just feel it's safer not to use elastic on babies.
