Baby Makes

My lovely friend brought a beautiful baby girl into the world last Friday.  Beautiful baby Sophie was so eagerly awaited and is such a blessing.
This little treasure gave me the opportunity to make a few little handmade items, no better excuse to make is there?  Sophie's nursery has a jungle theme so I made this little patchwork blanket for her to squiggle about on.

It is backed with the softest minky fleece and labelled with a dresden plate tag.

The minky was great for another baby project, this little minky rabbit made using a great little pattern from Mandy Shaw.



There were also knitting and crochet makes and a larger longer sewn project which is awaiting finishing touches, but what a pleasure it is to make for such a treasure.

I will add these into my monthly makes for September.  


The Flickr group is filling up nicely and our lovely host is doing a great job so far.

Right back to the decorating *sigh*...

Back Soon

Aww baby Sophie is very cute. Love your makes Kandi. I started the leaf blanket earlier this year but when my morning sickness kicked in I couldn`t face it anymore.
Sophie is a very lucky girl.

The patchwork blanket is truly a thing of beauty. I wish I had even 1% of your crafty abilities! I struggled so much with knitting some bunnies for my friend's baby and that was considered an easy project :(
