Pattern Description:

Accessories can add so much fun to those newborn photos. These props are the perfect addition to those photoshoots that capture those first days.

illustrations for all 4 zoo animal hats & cape photography prop sets. You will have a pattern for a tiger, zebra, giraffe and elephant set. The pattern is for newborns up to 2 months old. My hat/cape sets are made as 2 individual pieces to allow a photographer to place them at the right angles, and also the flexibility of using the set or just the hat by itself. The pattern is a PDF File. I offer help with any of my patterns, just send me an email.

I also have a pattern for just the hats here on craftsy.
