Pattern Description:

I had a friend who was expecting a baby email me a photo of a cocoon she wanted. I hunted the pattern down, but two days and many frustrated re-do's later, I decided I could create something much simpler and easier to put together, so I did! It turned out so cute, I decided to make it available to others, since when I needed to make one all I could find was the pattern that was so difficult. This works up super quick, and stitches together as easy as a paint by number. :)
