There are two bags that I am making for the baby boy who had the first lot of personalised bunting. He's having a P.E. style bag and a bigger (probably bucket style) bag for when he goes to nursery.
I have been playing around with ideas in my head and have decided to go for a blue and stars theme.
I am going to add his name and some other bits.
They'll probably be added tomorrow.
But in the meantime I am loving these!
Blue is one of my favourite colours and you know when you like a colour
- it just makes you smile and feel good!
Look at my backside!
Look at the back of the work - I'm so chuffed with myself as it is looking so neat.
So that's one in production.
The next has been finished. This is for a good friend of mine's son.
He was after a waterproof lined swimming bag.
I gave him a choice of fabric after he'd said he wanted blue and stars.
(That made me realise how many blue starry fabric I have!)
These are what I'm using for the ties - and they are from The Resource Centre in Yeovil http://www.thehubyeovil.co.uk/the-scrapstore/4579142456
and their facebook page is
This is a fab place ... a treasure trove for crafters!
I love it here and end up spending quite a bit
with ideas just brimming in my head as to what projects to utilise the treasures I have bought!
With those adjustable woggle thingy-a-ma-gigs! What are they called?!
I do hope he likes it!
So that's the bits I've been sewing.
I've been knitting as well! And I have the perfect model in mind!
This one was finished first. It is the next size up of the Beyond Puerperium cardigan that I love.
This one is 6-12 months.
And this one isn't blue ... but in a snazzy green combination.
Jack's dad (my brother) loves green, and him and his girlfriend both want bright for Jack
- so this fitted both in my mind!
And with buttons (bright green to match!)
I absolutely love this pattern! The link for it is here .... http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/beyond-puerperium
It is a fantastic design by the very talented Kelly Brooker
I hope to make more of her designs soon.
Although (whispering here)
... she messaged me and asked - as I was such a Beyond Puerperium fan -
if I would test the new pattern format out for it!
Woo hoo! Another shoot at the fab BP!
And this is all I had left out of the 100g ball of Stylecraft Merry Go Round yarn in Peacockhttp://www.stylecraft-yarns.co.uk/Wondersoft+Merry+Go+Round+3143+Peacock/0_caea526_CAFA029/PRNC133.htm
And now for the final blue item in this post ...
I saw this advert on the www.ravelry.com site and thought I'd have a nose. http://www.ravelry.com/groups/ninja8tofus-tofu-shack
Only to find the cutest jumper! I decided there and then that I wanted to join in the KAL (although it had already started by then!) http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/teddy-sweater-4 by another fab designer http://www.ravelry.com/designers/terri-kruse
I chose some Stylecraft Special DK that was already in my stash http://www.stylecraft-yarns.co.uk/
A gorgeous turquoise and pure white for the polar bear!
Work in progress!
Nearly there ...
And ta-dah ...
Isn't it cute?!
I embroidered his eyes and nose on.
Can't wait to see Jack in it (and in the BP too!)
