I was asked to make a ‘unique’ gift for a newborn girl. I have made plenty of mittens and Mary Jane booties in the past but thought a ‘gift set’ would be nice.

The gift set is made up of a pixie hat, mittens, pixie booties and a dolly all in the same colour.

I loved making this, it’s so adorable and wish I had thought about it when my little one was born.

As it happens, the baby ended up being a boy so I had to crochet a gift set for a newborn baby boy, I used a royal blue wool and changed the hat to a bobble hat and the boots a little bit more ‘boyish’. Unfortunately I didn’t take a picture of the toy which was an ABC cube.

I have a friend from work who is due a baby in July but has not found out the sex, hopefully it will be a little girl and the gift set will be used but for now it’s up for sale at:
