Crochet Paisley Bib & Clip

My newest design is a baby bib and pacifier clip that I have so aptly named, "The Paisley Bib & Clip..."

I made this with Red Heart Soft yarn. Below, you will find the free pattern for the bib, clip and the owl appliqué.  I think it turned out super cute.

Happy Crocheting.
