Handmade Baby Clothes

Lisbeth Perrone, Author A.D. Bragdon $19.95 (168p) ISBN 978-0-916410-27-8
The baby clothes and toys in this book, to be knitted, crocheted or stitched, are exquisite creations that will bring great satisfaction to those who make them. Perrone, a New Mexico needleworker who holds a Swedish graduate degree in decorative needle arts, has an educated eye for design and color, and her instructions are clearly outlined with patterns as well as diagrams and close-up photos showing details. Included here, for the newborn to three-year-old, are a lace-trimmed cotton dress, crocheted overalls, knit sweaters with matching hats, mittens and socks, appliqued quilts and bibs, cross-stitch pillows, samplers and dolls. Additional notes on needlework techniques, enlarging and transferring patterns, laundering and blocking are a helpful bonus.
