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.

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:
