Ruffles And Baby Bums Were Made For Each Other

Since getting pregnant with Sophia I've knitted loads of soakers....some that I liked and maybe one or two that I really liked but soaker love was elusive. Until now (8 1/2 months into her life)! This one meets all the criteria for a great soaker...snug yet roomy, easy thus fast to make yet not so boring that I want to gouge my eyes out, and of course, cute!
Soakers just off the needles...for Sophia.

For you knitters out there: I used the Frantic Mama pattern. I wanted a snug waistband, so I cast on for a small then increased after the waist to make a medium sized bum. The ruffles are crocheted.
For you knitters and non-knitters alike: Here's a cute bum shot...

Sorry for the excessive phone pics. My camera is still broken...and will be until I get it to the shop. I'm a procrastinator. What can I say? It's still "useable" but kind of a pill, so I like my phone better right now. If you're an instagram junkie, like me, then you should totally friend me. I'm @barefootgal. I'm also barefootgal on Ravelry if you happen to be that sort.

Happy Thursday, y'all!


  1. I mean to tell you, "That is a CUTE, CUTE soaker!!!!!!!!"

  2. Good job Madeline that is precious! I need some recommendations for inexpensive but durable fitted diapers. It seems like we have leaky prefold issues after being in the car-seat. I was thinking about getting a few fitted diapers.

  3. they go together so well, look at those chubby leggies!

  4. Too cute! This makes me almost miss having Darah in diapers!



I'm so glad you're here!
