Here are the babygifts with buttons! I wonder why it the addition of the final touch takes me so long. The shell buttons on the booties are basic, but perfect. And the hand-painted wooden buttons on the cache coeur are so sweet. Peace Fleece offers natural cherry buttons and some beautiful painted ones too; I feel good about using materials from such a consciencious company. The baby is expected on Wednesday this week! I'm sure I'll be knitting more baby sweetness once I meet this sweet muse.
I'm flashing back to Easter here for a minute. The teeny tiny teddy bear and bunny were made for inside-the-eggs treats for my kids (I made two of each). The pattern is from Little Cotton Rabbits, a free pattern on her sidebar. They were so fun & quick to make! Both the teenager and the little one loved them, and they even provided in-flight entertainment on the way home. I highly recommend this project.
