New Babies

This year seems to be the year for babies.  At least with the people I know and so it means lots of new baby gifts.  There are so many beautiful patterns out there that are a bit too babyish for Coot and Noot, or I have already made them for my girls.

I have finished the first two.  These are for super special surrogate twins who are expected in about 10 weeks.

I used the delightful pattern from the Green Dragonfly.  I love the feel of cotton for baby toys and to make these just the right size for baby hands (and probably mouths) I used the Stylecraft classique cotton.  I used the silver and soft lime for both and then shell pink and hot pink for the girl bunny and sky blue and azure for the boy bunny.  I’m not always so caught up in gender specific colours but with twins it might help the parents make sure each child has the right toy and to know that they have been made specially for each child.  I hope they are well received!

Two baby gifts down, six more to do!
