Baby Card with Crochet 2

It seems that my first baby shower card with a crochet carriage has been a big hit. So today I'm posting a second card with a crochet embellishment. You also get a free pattern and a bonus idea. Here it is.

Supplies needed for the card
Paper: White card stock, black with polka dots scrapbook paper
Tools: Embossing machine, 'Celebrate' embossing folder
Embellishments: white lace with pearls, crochet bib, baby sticker, piece of white crochet cotton thread, white bow, and self adhesive pearls.
 Bib Pattern
Material
Crochet cotton white tread #3
Hook: 1.40mm
Abbreviations
Ch = chain
SK = skip
SC = single crochet
DC = double crochet
TR = treble crochet
SL ST = slip st
TOG = 

Ch 17
Row 1: sk 1ch, sc2, dc 2, dc 2tog in each of the next 8 ch (16), dc2, sc 2, ch1 and turn
Row 2: sc 2, dc 2, tr 2tog in each of the next 16 st, dc 2, sc 2, ch 3, and turn
Row 3: sk 1st, sl st ch, ch 3, sk 1st, sl st ch, ch 3, sk 1st, sl st ch - repeat pattern through the row. Sl st, fasten off. Leave a "tail" to sew to the beginning of bib forming the inside part. Glue or sew small bow. 
Bonus Idea
I used green yearn for this one, so I skipped the second row.
For the 3rd row I did:
In same stitch and using a different color 
DC 2, ch 2, sl st in first ch, DC 1. Repeat throughout this row, and end the same way shown in the pattern for the white bib.
Glue a piece of magnet tape in the back of the miniature bib for a refrigerator magnet.
You can also glue a small tag with the name of the baby and the date he/she was born before you glue the bow, and give these bibs as party favors at a baby shower.

Thank you for stopping by. May God bless you abundantly.
