Customer Orders

You may remember last month that I was in the middle of a baby photo prop order. This month I finished the crown and poncho. I used Rico cotton DK in natural and gold.

Here is the complete set:

I had another order from America (very exciting!); this time for a sun hat. I used Drops Paris in pink:

The flower is also made using Drops Paris yarn.
Presents

I love making presents! This cute bear hat and booties set is for my friend who has just had a little girl. We went to NCT together for our first babies, now we both have 2! Our little boys are good friends, and we still manage to go for a cheeky coffee regularly! I used Stylecraft Special aran in raspberry.

This shawl was a birthday present for my mother-in-law. It has worked up really nicely! I used Ice Yarns Magic DK Light.

Using the same yarn, I also made my mother-in-law this sweet brooch:


Crochet

***All of the following are available to buy now in my Etsy shop***

I seem to have made quite a few hat & bootie sets this month! Here are another two! These are made using Stylecraft Special aran yarn:

This is my first attempt at a crochet dress – what do you think? It is aged 12-18 months and is made using Ice Yarns Gumball yarn.

I have made a couple of headbands this month. I don’t know what the yarn is, just some sparkly stuff I found in my stash!

And finally, something new! Coasters! What do you think? Again, I don’t know what the yarn is, just some left over in my house!


Sewing 

I seem to have only spent a few minutes at my sewing machine this month. I made these two baby blankets.

Let’s see what August brings!
