Yes, I’m back again! I’m rushing to try to get you all caught up before the end of the year. Today, I get to share with you some baby leg warmers and a Unicorn Lovey that I worked on for Iris, aka “Baby Rainy”. Some of you may remember the Rainbow Baby Blanket, headbands, footwear and Baby Mitten Socks I made for her. I’m so excited that I also get to share pictures of her with these new items, as I got to see her reaction in person.
First up, the Baby Leg Warmers. They are so freaking adorable! Rainy is very long and most baby pants that fit around her waist are not long enough for her little legs. Therefore, leg warmers to the rescue! The pattern is free and fit her perfectly. They were a really quick project and I need to make more for her so her legs don’t freeze this winter. Here are the details:
Ravelled Here: Essential Leg Warmers by Jemma Helliker
Started / Finished: 9/7/17 ~ 9/9/17
Needles Used: US 6 – 4.0 mm and US 8 – 5.0 mm DPN’s
Yarn Used: Red Heart Gumdrop in the colorway Cherry
How adorable is she? Awww…
Next up is her Unicorn Lovey. Those that follow me on Instagram saw some In Progress pictures of this and were probably wondering what I was making. It almost looked like a little owl face when I combined the horn and eye parts together. This project came about because of the Unicorn Blanket from yesterdays post being too big for Rainy. At least until she’s a teenager 🙂 I knew I wanted to make her something Unicorn and that led me down a rabbit hole, once again, on Ravelry. This is another project in Crochet and I’m so glad I have the skill to pull something like this off.
The blanket part of the lovey went pretty quick, as did crocheting most of the individual pieces. What took the longest? All of the assembly! There were a lot of pieces that had to be put together and lots of sewing involved but she turned out so flipping cute! The pattern was very well written and included photos for the trickier bits. I highly recommend it if you are looking to make something like this.
