Double trouble

Pattern from the Meet me at Mikes craftbook.

No, not twins.  I made two pairs of booties for a new baby gift because my friend that I gifted a pair to about five months ago told me how ace they were, especially at keeping little socks on tiny feet. 

The pair with the cross-stitch flower was made from a vintage hanky and a pink pillowcase.  I did a quick and wonky attempt at cross-stitching a small flower onto the second bootie to make them look more like a matching pair.  The other pair was made from a vintage sheet and a remnant of white cotton.

I also got down to a bit of softie making.  I haven't made a "serious-arms-and-legs" softie in ages so I was pleased when I set to work last night that this little bunny turned out just the way I hoped. I used the vintage sheet and pillowcase again.  I like the combination of soft colours.  Hopefully I will get to pop these in the post this afternoon.

Speaking of double trouble, I might even make another bunny...for someone else though.

Isn't it lovely to give vintage linens a brand new life. That little bubba is very lucky!

These are amazing!!! If you were selling these and I had a baby I would totally buy them. They are just 'my cup of tea'. Hope you are having a lovely week. Melinda x

I have been eyeing off this project but haven't got to it yet because they look tricky to make. Yours look Gorgeous!

That's one cute bunny. Thanks for the link now I can make one and add it to my gift of fabric baby shoes that I've just made. Perfect :)
