I didn’t really start seeing these until about 2013 or 2014 so it was well past my being able to use them for my own kids. There is something so comforting about them, though. I can imagine a little newborn feeling safe and protected, all cuddled up. This was also about the time the crochet photo prop mania began so we started seeing more and more of them. Here are 10 of my favorite, perfect for swaddling or photography, whichever you choose.

Many of you have written to me to ask how you can help support CrochetKim. A Patreon account was suggested but I thought it would be better to provide ad-free PDFs of my patterns so you would get something in return. I'm steadily working on adding PDFs to all my patterns and I've also made this compilation available at a discounted price. You can, of course, view, print, paste to a word processor, convert to PDF, etc. on your own. This is just an extra feature so that people help out, if they want. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
