Babies and Nurseries
Here is one of a series of new projects I am working on at the moment. A while ago I produced some hand knitted Baby Blankets made up of individually designed squares showing rabbits, footballers, stars, hearts, letters, trains, teddy bears, boats, butterflies and on and on, and now I am making these super cushions using squares I had made and not used and the yarn which I have left.
The boucle yarn is a cotton and linen mix and the second yarn (seen here on the edging of the A square and for the letter itself) is a mix of hand dyed wool and bamboo. The cushions measure about 16" square and have feather filled pads, and will vary somewhat according to the yarn I have left.
They will be on show at The Hand-Crafted Home Fair on 26 May at Aldwincle Village Hall (see previous post) with lots of other super products and, incidentally, if anyone is interested in a stall they are going rapidly and so don't leave it too late to book. (Go to http://www.stallfinder.com/ for booking details.)
Anyway, here is the back of the cushion which is made up of a mix of all the colours on the front!
And here is one of the Baby Blankets which began it all + Jake of course!
