A Handmade Birthday

A couple of weeks ago my lil girl turned 4, which I'm still finding  hard to believe!

Like all her birthdays before, her present was handmade by me.
This year I made a point of finally knitting Daisy the bunny.
The pattern was purchased, well before she was born, with the plan to make it back then.

Made using a gorgeous soft angora yarn, which I can't remember the name of

It was touch and go that I would actually finish her in time for her birthday, because for some silly reason, that week, I thought her birthday was a day after her actual Birthday!....so for a while there I was prematurely confident that I would be finished in time. 

This little bunny should have had knitted shoes, lace cuffs on her socks, knitted bloomers and a knitted dress.....but with time a ticking, I had to improvise.


So that's where the tutu came about.....
made from bits and pieces in my stash.  Which was a happy accident that all worked out.....although it wasn't without staying up into the early wee hours.

And then as luck would have it the Traveling Stash Box arrived, in it  was some extra sparkly blue tulle in there, and just enough to make a tutu for  my Lil miss.....the perfect accompaniment
present for the bunny


I made it ankle length, because she really loves wearing long skirts and dresses.....plus I reckon it will last longer too!

Who by the way sent me this sweet package for my birthday a couple of weeks ago.....isn't she lovely? I'm so happy I have own some hoop bunting! :)
