Elmo Inspired Baby Booties Crochet Pattern

While I created these baby booties I couldn't help but sing, "Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame Street!"

I love how even every song can evoke so many memories, and stir powerful enough emotions to transport us back in time.

One song that always triggers happy memories for me is "I Believe I Can Fly", since as I child I would belt that songs chorus at the top of my lungs every time I swung on a swing set. I will admit, it must have been a very odd sight to on lookers, but that didn't stop me from enjoying every single moment of it!
What is one of your favourite childhood songs?

    1. Hello,
      So sorry, but I haven't created a size larger than 12 months yet. When I do create a 2yrs old size, I will be sure to let you know!

    1. Hello,
      Yes I do, I just ask that if they sell the item online, that they give either myself or my blog credit in the item/listing's description.
