Another great crochet pattern book from my now-closed shop, this one is Tender Touch Layettes by designer Sandra Abbate, published by Leisure Arts. I bought it directly from Leisure Arts when it was in print, and it has been stored since then. There are 3 different sets to crochet in size 3 months or 6 months:
1. Pink Posies, made with sport weight yarn, has a top, pants, cap, booties, and afghan. Yarn requirements are given for each item, which is great if you are only crocheting one part of the outfit.
2. Sweetheart Roses, made with sport and fingering yarn, has a jacket, bubble suit, booties, headband, and afghan. Again, separate yarn requirements for each piece.
3. Say It With Flowers, made with sport and fingering yarn, has a coat, dress, bonnet, booties, and afghan Yarn requirements given for each piece.
The dress could be made for a christening by making it full length, maybe changing the flowers by putting them around the hem. It is made with fingering weight (sock weight?) so is very delicate-looking for that special occasion.
I have many more books in my shop that aren't list on Etsy or in my online shop. Feel free to ask me if there is a title you may be hunting. You never can tell, I might have it!
There are no returns on books, because they can be copied before returning. I found this out in my shop years ago!
Postage to US addresses is $3.75 first class or $6.65 priority. I am more than happy to combine orders and discount postage. I also accept orders sent to foreign countries but check with me first for rates!
I use the USPS exclusively. Shipping costs shown are for postage; any other services such as insurance or delivery confirmation are extra. Uninsured orders are sent at the buyer's own risk; I make the insurance optional because most buyers do not want to pay $1.80 insurance on a $3.00 book! I try to mail packages no later than the next week day, and if I plan to be out of the shop for more than 2 days I will put a notice on the shop page.
Payments may be with Paypal, personal or bank check, or money order. International orders are welcome; Paypal is preferred for international order, but a check or money order ON A US BANK is allowed if pre-approved. Louisiana residents will pay 8.5% sales tax.
Returns & exchanges
Since books can be copied and then returned (I found this out in my shop years ago), I do not allow returns on books unless they are defective. Since I personally page through each book before I send it out, this has never happened! Other items such as supplies are handled on an individual basis.
