(sorry everybody, more baby stuff)
Recently, it came to my attention that Little R needed a ball. So I made one using this pattern, and some scrap material. I didn’t get the colour order right with the pieces, but this is what happens when you decide to sew something while making supper, and watching the baby investigate a pile of paperwork. (“I know she’s destroying important things….but also, she is busy…”)
It is also not overly round but as G helpfully pointed out, it is less likely to roll away.
But even if it did…
…she’d have no trouble keeping up!
Two baby toys for my niece or nephew to be.(Apologies for the poor photo quality. I forgot to snap them before gifting, and then did a hurried job. But you get the idea.) A pink turnip made from thrifted wool sweaters and a rainbow beet from a thrifted t-shirt. The turnip has some crinkly plastic inside. I wish I could say where the rather unlikely idea came from….I suppose I’ve got my nose quite firmly stuck in gardening books and magazines. At any rate, perhaps they will inspire an enthusiasm for root vegetables!
Bit by bit, very tiny bit by tiny bit, I am getting back into some making. I’ve been trying to do some more sewing for little R, but that is proving a little tricky. I’ve managed some knitting though. I made this Little Friend Cloth hoping to give it as a gift at a baby shower the other day but I didn’t get it done. Very basic knitting, as you can see, using a bit of cotton I had hanging about. The head is simply two layers, forming a sort of wide loop and I made the eyes and nose by needle felting. This little friend can be used as a face cloth or chew toy. Not sure exactly what sort of creature it is, hence the “little friend” title!
Filed under knitting, making
We are going to a FIRST birthday party on Saturday and while they said gifts were not necessary, I just couldn’t help myself from making a little something. I thought since it is Easter weekend I’d make a little bunny, and I found a great pattern here. Very simple and quick.
The bunny is exceedingly cute on its own with just little french-knot eyes. But I also couldn’t help myself from making the bunny a little coat.
I probably should have been doing other things, but sometimes you just have to go with the urge to craft.
