Source : Mamachee (http://mamachee.com)

Crochet has always been a passion for me. My grandma taught me how to crochet when I was 14. And since then, I’m really keen on this activity. It kind of calms me, especially after a huge busy day with the kids around!

Today I was looking for a new pattern to make this summer and I found this amazing project online!

My sister’s giving birth in winter 2015 and I guess this will be a fabulous gift for her baby!
