Pink & white ballet set

Pretty frilly skirt with satin ribbon detail. With simple cross over cardigan, this piece was designed to have frilly pants knitted into the design but I choose not to do them. It also had little slippers and a head band, which are not in the photo. A friend fell in love with this piece so it went to a special little princess. 

White rose pink bolero.

Lovely pink soft wool detailed edging bolero, would fit 6/9 month old perfect over a pretty party dress.

Pre term baby (or doll)
Using robin baby wool in pink & white. Cute little romper bolero & hat. Finished off with little ribbon bows, there is small beads on this so extra care during wearing is advised, perfect for a special photo outfit. 

Using purple medium/heavy weigh wool (unsure of brand). This was very easy & quick to do, as it used large needles the results came quickly, only took a few days to do so will deffo be doing more sizes & colours. 

Using supersoft cream aran & funky fur wool. The cream funky fur I found to be more white/light cream but this was the closest shade match to the aran. 
I think it looks close enough, pattern was fairly simple to follow once got into it, I did make a few mistakes meaning had to take back a hole days work, but I managed to quickly get back to stage where I noticed my mistake. This piece fits 5/6 tight but 4/5 over a nice winter sweater.

Pink altered book

Book blank from hobby craft.
Used glittery card stock, handmade flowers and wired leafs. Added the topper as an after thought, not sure if it looks ok tho.
