Happy New Year!

A new year and lots of new ideas. Christmas is over and although it is still winter I think most people now have a large stock of hats, scarves and gloves. I need new and exciting stock to sell this year.

My little sister is due a baby boy in March so this is what most of my new ideas are based on. So my first one was a teeny weeny baby elephant, even though she is very cute I really wanted to personalise her in some way. I decided I wanted to hand embroid this fabulous year on to ‘Nellie’ but with her being so small I have found this a bit tricky!

I personally love receiving gifts when they are nicely presented and managed to find a small presentation box that Nellie squeezed in to.

My plan now is to make Nellie a little blanket to keep her warm and embroid 2014 on this instead. What do you think?

I think she makes a lovely ‘newborn’ gift and I have decided to make these in an assortment of colours including purple, blue, pink and white.

My next ‘make’ is a baby blanket šŸ™‚

Thanks for reading and any ideas/comments are always welcome.
