My friend Jill has just started her very own photography business, and needed some props for her newborn photography. She wanted a cocoon and a pod and a matching baby hat with bear ears. I found a great pattern on Etsy for the pod, improvised a pattern for the cocoon, and modified an existing hat pattern and added ears for the bear hat. Unfortunately the only model I had on hand was a stuffed animal. I think if I'm gonna keep making baby items I need to get some life-sized models! Stay-tuned for some professional pics from Jill's sessions showing off these items with real babies inside! And stay-tuned for the pattern for the cocoon. Its made with a size N hook and is super quick to make. I bet a newborn would snuggle right down in one of those and pass out - just like being back in the womb!
The cocoon is made from Lion Brand Homespun in apple green
The pod and hat are in Lion Brand Naturals organic cotton in chocolate brown
