Here are 2 more baby sweaters and hats and one pair of booties. I did get some cute buttons to add to some of my sweaters. Even though I don't like sewing on buttons, they do add something extra to the sweaters.

2 Cuddle Sack with Matching Hats

I have crocheted 2 cuddle sacks with matching hats. Bubbles is modeling the multi-colored one that I crocheted with the shell stitch. The blue and white one is made with the twin stitch. I was running out of blue, so I saved a bit for the hat trim and finished the top of the sack with white, and most of the hat is white with the blue trim. I think it turned out pretty good.
