A little while ago, I became an Auntie for the tenth time. A new baby is always a good excuse for crafting right? So a deep dive into the stash was in order.
First up was a pebble vest with matching hat and booties. I used up a bunch of scraps for these. The pebble vest pattern is available for free and is quick and easy to knit and makes a great baby gift. I have knitted a few of these over the years.
I also knitted another pebble using larger needles so that it would fit for a bit longer, also with scraps from my stash.
And so the sewing machine didn’t feel too neglected, I made him a quilt as well. Some of the fabric I used was from my stash and I used a polar fleece blanket for the batting to make it light weight and warm. The backing fabric was from my stash. I just couldn’t resist those racoons, so cute!
His mum was thrilled, I think she secretly wanted to keep the quilt for herself!
