Crochet bib with a cute frog

Crochet bib for babies

crochet bib for babies
I have been living in a dormitory for the 6 years and now my roommate is pregnant. All my roomies are waiting for this baby, but we still don't know who are we waiting for. Today she is going for a scanning and I wish it will be a little girl, but my friend is waiting for boy. Just to make her smile I've crocheted this cute bib. 

I've also recently started my personal website where I blog about crocheting, knitting and other creative stuff. Check out my latest free knitting patterns for babies here.
