Handmade Coziness for Babies

Remember that baby blanket from the very first post? I have not really had the time to introduce it yet… so here it is!

 

The blanket is hand-knitted from a super soft chunky acrylic nylon blend yarn in light blue and white and the perfect cuddly gift for a baby boy. I did not have a particular person in mind when I was working on it but since a lot of my friends and co-workers are having babies right now it was the perfect timing! Measuring a whopping 36″W x 42″L it is perfect as a crib blanket and can be used well into toddler age or even early childhood as a snuggy blanket. This way the little one won’t have to give it up so soon.

After I was done with the blanket I had quite a bunch of leftover yarn. The yarn was wonderful to work with and has the advantage of being machine washable and dryable so I decided to make a matching bunny and a baby hat …

I am very happy with the way everything came out. The elf/stocking hat is intended to be a photo prop. Because of the huge pompom and the long tail it is not suited as a baby hat for everyday life but I am confident it makes for marvelous newborn photos!

I am currently working on a whole bunch of new baby hat photo props and other exciting projects so check back often to see what’s new!
