New Baby Book Review and Giveaway

Who doesn’t LOVE babies? And if you’re a crocheter, I’m sure you love crocheting for babies as much as I do (or maybe even more)! My 3 sons are all grown up and I’m looking forward to having some grandchildren in the near future (hint, hint!). When my grandchildren start to arrive, you can bet that I’ll be crocheting baby hats, blankets, booties and outfits for them! But for now, I continue to crochet other things and once in a while I sneak in a baby project for a relative’s or friend’s new baby!


I’m pleased to review Tammy Hildebrand’s brand new book, “Crochet for Baby All Year” by Stackpole Books. It’s 120 pages long and retails for $21.95 in the US ($25.95 in Canada). You can see all the projects in the book here.

This book is fabulous!!! It’s full of outfits for babies from birth up to 18 months. There are 20 designs in the book with 1-2 different outfits for boys and girls during every month of the year. The photos are adorable, as are the outfits and the babies in them! Tammy even used her granddaughter, Willow, as one of the models! How cool is that?


Here are a few of my favorite outfits and photos in the book:


Varsity Cheerleader Dress & Headband

This is the “Varsity Cheerleader Dress & Headband” that is pictured on the front cover of the book. This is a different photo of that dress and I think it’s just “priceless”!!!


Scarlet Beetle Tank Top and Hat

This is the “Scarlet Beetle Tank Top & Hat”. You can see that Tammy designed this set to be worn by a boy or girl. I think it’s adorable!!!


Stanley the Stegosaurus Costume

This is the “Stanley the Stegosaurus Costume”. What little baby boy wouldn’t love to wear this for Halloween or any time of the year? There’s a pink dinosaur costume named “Stella” for a baby girl, too.


As you can see, there are some absolutely adorable baby outfits in this book! I hope you’ll take a look at this book at your local craft store or online and consider adding it to your crochet library soon. We can never have too many crochet books, just like yarn, right?

    Oh Susan, thanks for the heads up and sneak peek at this wonderful book, I looked through the whole book. There are so many adorable little boy outfits in here, I have been searching for patterns for little boys for some time, they are hard to come by. I found 10 in this book that I would love to make for my new, first of many more to come, great grand baby, especially the Game Changer Jersey, Hat, and Booties outfit. Dad is into football, and I could make it in his favorite team colors, oh my goodness; my head is swimming with all the possibilities presented in this book. Thank you so much Susan, if I don’t win it, I will definitely be looking for it in the store.

    I would absolutely love to have this book. I love Tammy’s designs and I love crocheting for babies. I am always looking for new baby designs. I crochet each expectant mother a blanket or outfit for their baby to be’s. I try to never make the same thing twice. Thank you and Tammy for the opportunity to win this book. My preacher’s grandson would look amazing in the dinosaur outfit and i could just see his little sister dressed as a pink dinosaur. That would be so cute.
