Easter Crafting...

Yes, I'm still knitting..... LOL!!! One day I'll venture back to the sewing machine, I hope, but while the knitting urge is still here I thought I might as well do some Easter crafting....


A bunny hat for little Millie.....
With one for Miss Connie on the way in chocolate brown...And a few of these super cute bunny washcloths for my girls....I'm also planning on making a heap of these for the rest of the extended family to team up with their home baked Easter treats this year.... They were so quick and easy to knit, perfect for the beginner...
What Easter traditions do you have???? Have you started your Easter crafting yet???

Also, over the weekend I had the courage (with some help from my Mum) to draft up a clothes pattern to knit.... I can't believe it actually worked out..... LOL!!! Here it is, a 'Jelly Top'....

There's a few things that need 'tweaking' so to speak and then the pattern will be all done, available as a dress or a top, too cute... ^_^

  2. Oh my goodness she is such a cutie pie and gorgeous model. Well done on creating your first knitting pattern too, you have such inspiration from your mum I bet. I love those bunny cloths, are they from Kristen Knits by any chance. I love the bunny hat too, and have thought of knitting some as gifts for some friends. I really should get organised but have been a bit distracted as you already know. Thank you too for your kind words of support Jodie.
