Lately I have been thinking my little girl’s bedroom window has been looking a little bare. It’s a rather large window, decorated with curtains and ‘bits & bobs’ on the windowsill but still bare during the day, I needed something hanging from the top rather than cluttering the windowsill.

Whilst walking my dog I noticed lots of people had ‘hangings’ in their windows, mostly wicker or wooden hearts, bunting or glass baubles. All very pretty but not very exciting for a baby, so I set to work on creating/crocheting a window hanging.

I needed something fun and bright and as it would be ‘floating’ I decided on a red balloon, all kids love balloons!

The balloon seemed a little bit boring all by itself so now I needed a little companion for him. My little girl loves bunnies at the moment so that was an easy option and as I tend to start a lot of projects and never finish them, a mini bunny was the quickest and easiest option. Here he is.

Now just put the two together and we have a very cute window hanging, I am sure my little one will love it (if not at least I do)!

I have neglected my little blog lately but hopefully I can start juggling being a parent, my job, crocheting and blogging!

Last week I took some unwanted items to my local charity shop and whilst I was there I spotted a big basket full of yarn! There was so much variety but I only had a little change on me so decided to choose carefully. I ended up with two Sunseeker Cotton Fantasie 50g balls for only £1.00 each, bargain!

Now all I needed to decide was what to make? My first idea was some mittens for my little girl but it’s nearly summer and they are a little bit boring. Hmm, what to make? Then I had an idea, my little one loves bunnies at the moment and since I haven’t yet made her a toy and she is 9 months old this was my final decision.

I found a lovely simple pattern (I tend to start a lot of projects and get bored half way through) and started my little mission.

Here are the end results.

I think he is very cute and my little girl is very fond of little Flopsy.
