Raindrop Cushions

I have a bit of a thing for sky business at the moment, so I've been putting clouds and rain on baby's singlets and making these raindrop cushions. I got the idea from somewhere on Pinterest. Lightly stuffed they can be cushions or toys. Sweet aren't they?

Baby Singlets

For each of my grandsons (and other people's too!) I have made a set of decorated singlets of various sizes. Here are some that I made for my latest beautiful grandson.

Naive Pussycat

I made Sooz this soft cat for her birthday back in February. She was saying how she loved this designer cat online but couldn't afford it. I had fun doing this and figuring out the spots etc. The base fabric is a soft yellow pinwale cord.

In his Indigo Suit

Back when I made it, I posted a photo of the indigo suit I had made for my new grandson (Nov 4, 2012). It was his outfit especially for coming home from hospital and here he is in it, dead asleep being transported home.

Easter Bunny

For her last baby, Suzi has some really exquisite clothes. I thought this onesie was so sweet and thought it would be great for Easter with an accompanying bunny. Handmade soft toys are so fresh and interesting at present and are both charming and easy to make. I can remember making really difficult and complicated ones in the past. I stuffed the bunny very softly and used a minimum of detail.

My Beautiful Grandson

Here is my beautiful new grandson, born on March 12. These photos are a selection of the ones I liked best. I made the crocheted shawl when his older brother was born. I also made the cap in the last photo from a pattern on Pinterest.
