gift that lasts just a few weeks before baby grows out of it.

They are knit in a superior, soft acrylic yarn, that makes it easy for a 
busy mum to simly pop in the wash.

Pretty little rompers for your Newborn!


New in the shop are these sweet summer baby rompers with matching bonnets.

Each romper has little daisies embroidered on the bib, 
for a lovely spring and summer feel.
The outfit is knit in soft, quality, acrylic yarn, to make washing them a breeze.
(but please lay flat to dry!)



The bonnets are a simple, classic style, but with a little 
girly frill around the face.  Chin-ties are crochet, and long enough 
for a lovely big bow.




There are no buttons for little fingers to fidget with or pull off, 
yet the romper is soft enough and stretchy enough, to easily get on and off 
your little one.


My three favourite colours for the outfits this summer 
are Sage green, Lavender Pink and a lovely Turquoise... 
( I do love little girls in blue... brings out those beautiful eyes!)


The baby romper sets are lovely as a summer outfit for your little baby girl,
or as a gift for a baby shower. (they come shipped in a cellulose bag with a big ribbon)

The one thing that I always have in stock, are these adorable little bear bonnets. 
They are one of my absolute best sellers!

The bonnets are knit with little crochet ears and chin-ties.
If you prefer to have beanies, I sell them in lots of colours too.
All my hats can be made in soft acrylic yarns if you dont like the alpaca, 
and cotton or merino yarn can be custom made too.


Every little boy or girl deserves the cutest little bear hat,
I make these in sizes newborn to 9 months old, with beanies in even bigger sizes

Great Crochet patterns for Baby's Nursery


How exciting! A new baby is about to join the family !
If you are anything like me, your fingers will be itching to knit or crochet a bunch of lovely baby goodies.  You will be eagerly browsing all those lovely squishy yarns and looking for beautiful patterns.

I have always loved making baby goodies, they are small, so quick and fun to make, and you can try new, more complex patterns, without committing to a big project. So with that in mind, I have found these lovely nursery crochet patterns for you to make.


Hanging Baby Basket Pouches

Some gorgeous hanging pouches, just perfect for toys, or for hanging alongside the changing table for baby wipes, bits and bobs.  Crochet using cotton yarn, these could even be used in the bathroom for keeping baby toys and cloths tidy.

Newborns can only focus about 8-12 inches from their face, and they only see black, white and grey, with the spectrum of colour starting to come into focus from about 5 months old, so these little penguins hanging from a mobile, are just perfect. You could add little red or other brightly coloured bow ties to each penguin if you prefer a little more colour.


Add a little colour to the nursery with a bright, fun rug.  Great for playtime too.
This little fox is too adorable, and would be lovely in a woodland or animal theme nursery.

Ok , so I am a sucker for little Pugs. They are so 'pup-u-lar' at the moment, because they are just so ugly-cute-adorable! This nursery rug, is sure to be a winner for a boy and his dog!



This adorable elephant rug has been around for a while, but I have included it in my list of Nursery decor, because it is such a delightful addition to any nursery.  The elephant can be made in traditional grey, or what ever colour you like to match your babys room. How about doing the ears in a rainbow of colours?

This adorable blanket- pillow combination is wonderful for a little kid. The colours can easily be adapted to match your nursery. Great for nap-time at grandma or for overnight visits.



An adorable bobble crochet sleeping cocoon and matching hat pattern. Perfect for taking a new baby out in the cold. The pattern comes in 2 sizes, 0-3 months and 3-6 months. Lovely for keeping snug and warm in a pram or while out and about.  This could become a beautiful heirloom piece that you hand down. 

 These lovely patterns are all available on Love Knitting website where you can also buy the yarn at the same time.  I have another blog post on 8 Easy knitting patterns for baby blankets that you may like too. (see the link below)

size for either laying over baby, like in the photo above, 
or for swaddling a baby in potato-sack style.


Knit in soft acrylic yarns, that can be popped into the washer, easy for mum, 
or for a newborn photographer.



Soft and flowing, the wraps are lovely to drape over baby.
