A couple of months ago I was in Michaels, when I came across the Loops & Thread Urban yarn. The soft/squishy material was just too good to pass up. I knew right away that I wanted to make a newborn prop.
My good friend Katy over at Truly Katy Photography is always coming up with the CUTEST newborn sessions. I was extremely excited when she said she would help show off this pattern. I mean, seriously, can this photo be any cuter?
With a seamless design, these pair of pants will look flawlessly at every photography angle. I fell in love with the color "Navy" as it reminded me of a starry night. Though I used boyish color schemes, this simple pattern would easily combine with all types of prints or solid colors.
