Some things I’ve made lately!
The Ravelry pattern is called Bunny ?, however this doesn’t really remind me of a bunny, just a cute Japanese character.
I added a small rattle insert to the head, bought from the While She Naps Etsy shop.
The yarn is the gorgeous SMC Select Solavita in Lagoon, bought last year at Hill Country Weavers in Austin.
Spikey has been so affectionate lately that I let him test (read: look at) the rattle for a while.
Made a bunch of baby hats and no-scratch mittens. Wasn’t sure about the sizing so I made 2 different sizes. The baby hat tutorial is from Makeit-Loveit. I can’t find the mittens pattern anymore, but the instructions were very incomplete anyway, so I winged it as best as possible. I used extra soft baby elastic.
The hats are made entirely on the serger, the mittens are a mix between sewing machine and serger.
I made this heart garland about 6 weeks ago for my baby’s Panda Warmer. What is a Panda Warmer, you’ll say…well this! A hospital bassinet :). The tutorial for the heart garland (great craft for kids because you can use staples instead of a sewing machine) is by Betz White and can be found here.
I saw this little idea on the web, to make a terry cloth apron for baby out of a store-bought towel. Seems like a good way to dry a slippery baby :). I didn’t use a tutorial, just used my own kitchen apron as a pattern. Excuse my lazy preggers outfit :)
Monster quilt McCalls M6411
I started this monster play quilt 10 weeks ago. Don’t think I’ll be able to finish it before baby comes. I put it away while cleaning the house. Choosing the colors is the hardest part :).
I’m adding crinkly plastic and using mostly minky fleece.
These guys still need mouths:
Cut plenty of baprons in March and finished the ones for Kimia and these too for myself, but never got to posting them. I still have quite a few cut, waiting to be finished. These are about 80% of the original pattern so a 2-3months old baby should be able to wear them (while drinking from a bottle or something).
