I want to share the story behind this very first pattern I published:
A few weeks after having my second child, a local photographer contacted me, asking for a favor. She had heard the story of a little boy who was born with fluid on his brain. The doctors had decided to wait on operating but sent baby Aiden home to observe over the next few weeks.
Not sure what was going to happen over the next few days, the photographer wanted to schedule a session for the very next day and was asking me to make a particular outfit. As a mom with my own newborn at home, and low on sleep, it would have been easy to say no; however, I felt this was a critical situation where my skills were needed. I searched the web for just the right outfit and couldn’t find anything that stood out to me. So, I grabbed some yarn, paper, and pencil, and after some time, I looked at my finished product.
My very first pattern design was the crochet baby boxer outfit. I finished it moments before the photography session and was honored to spend time with Aiden and his mother.

After the image was posted on social media, I began receiving requests for the outfit from other parents who also had little fighters. I can’t tell you how many outfits I ended up making before quickly finding out I was not physically capable of keeping up with the requests. Not wanting to let customers down, and I knew there was a big crochet community full of love that could make them.
So I typed up my very first pattern, the baby boxer outfit, and published it. The response and support from the crochet community were overwhelming. I was touched by the number of people all over the world, making this pattern.
Since then, I’ve learned so much and continue to challenge myself creatively and technically. I’m always learning and feeling inspired by the crochet and knit community. That community is a big part of my heart.
I’m also happy to report baby Aiden has defied the odds and continues to grow and strive. I love watching him on Facebook and seeing all his cute little smiles. They warm my heart.

Due to the popularity of the Baby Boxer Crochet Pattern, I felt it was time to add the Boxing Baby Shoes Crochet Pattern.
The Boxing Baby Shoes Crochet Pattern really helped to complete the boxer outfit, and added something special.
Some great features of the Boxing Baby Shoes Crochet Pattern are:
- Quick - small projects like baby shoes can be completed very quickly
- Useful - even after the pictures are taken these shoes will be perfect to keep baby's feet warm
- Veristale - because the Baby Boxing Shoes Crochet Pattern only uses a small amount of yarn, these shoes are great for using yarn from your stash
