Crochet Baby Hat and Mary Jane Shoes


Charlie is the best little model. She's always awake, quiet, and never complains. I think we will keep her. 

The soft colors are perfect for wearing with anything and would be great for photo shoot, too. There are plenty of color combinations  that you can switch it up with as well. Makes a great gift for a new baby!
