I got a message from a customer in the middle of October. She wished to have a newborn set for a baby girl due in the middle of December. “Light pink, please.” So I wrote this request down and worked on the other orders. Till yesterday. I got a new message. The baby was born couple days ago. Ups. I checked the communication and realised that this baby really hurried up. So I put everything else aside and started to work on the set for this little baby girl so she can go home in a new warm outfit. And as this order went along pretty quickly I decided to surprise the parents with a bonus to the order. I made this small coolishek with a pompom to match the set. Today I would like to share this easy pattern with you. Just in case that anyone would like to surprise another parents in the same situation.
Coolishek for preemies.
