You need:

Needles size 3mm

Yarn to embroider the face and other stuff, like leaves on the top.

And now for the pattern itself.
NOTE: The pattern isn't tested so if you find any errors, please tell me.

Finishing
Sew all the seam and stuff all the pieces. After that sew pieces together and embroider the face.

You can make different accesories to your baby, I embroider little yellow seed all over her suit and added few leaves on the top of her head. I also knitted a little scarf, making a basic i-cord with dpns.
