any crocheters out there?

It's late. I've been crocheting. I found a new site: http://www.ravelry.com/ LOVE IT!

Anyways, I want to crochet THIS for my new upcoming baby.

I can't find a pattern: free or otherwise, although obviously I would prefer free. HELP ME!

Anyone have any ideas? Have you seen the newest Sleep Sacks? I've seen plenty of knit versions, no decent crocheted ones. The one in the above picture was made up as a momma went along, 'cause she couldn't find a decent pattern either. Unfortunately, she hasn't posted her pattern (not sure she even could write it down). Bummer....

I want one that goes up under baby's arms (not with sleeves or suspenders), then is just a basic bag, with a drawstring at the bottom for diaper changes. I *love* the knit version.....I need to start designing my own crochet stuff......a lot of crochet patterns are just so.....old!

Ok, thanks for listening to me vent. I did crochet up some cute little.....oh wait, I can't say. I'll tell ya later~ 'night!

p.s. Oh, I must give credit where credit is due. This whole "baby sleep sack" search arose from viewing this marvelous pic of new baby Harper. Congrats SouleMama!!

oooh, I like this idea! The sack looks so cozy! If you find a pattern, will you let me know? My mother-in-law is really good at crocheting... she might be able to figure it out from a picture (she is so much better at stuff like that then I am- I totally need a pattern!).

Totally off topic, but you're on baby center, right?

Um, nope. No baby center....that I remember. Sometimes I join a group late at night, but I *know* I haven't been active on BC.

I found a crocheted pattern for this type of sleep sack - but it was $10. YIKES! But I think I can figure it out. I'm gonna try, anyways....

Starting tomorrow though....gees, it's late.... ;)

I was trying to remember how I came across your blog. I figured it was on babycenter, but I guess not. : ) It isn't very often that I meet women that are planning for a 5th. c-section!
