Strawberry Baby

A little make for a little person to show you today.



Were you here when my darling niece was born?  If you were, you might remember I made her into a Blueberry Baby and a Pumpkin Baby?  That is to say, I made her a hat and booties set in each of those fruity styles.  Well, if you do remember, you'll know that I made those before she was born and before I knew she was going to be an adorable bouncy baby girl.

Now that I know that she is indeed an ABBG, me and her Mother decided to break out the Strawberry Baby!  Probably the cutest possible type of fruit that a baby could be.

I used this adorable pattern for the hat, the same as I used for the blueberry, but in a larger size because these children tend to grow at an incredible rate of knots.

And likewise, a larger size of booties, using this pattern, as written this time, that seems utterly ridiculously sized for a 3-6 month old baby, but astonishingly, turned out to fit just perfectly.


In fact, the child is not even at the three month stage yet, so perhaps she is just particularly well endowed in the foot region!

I'm glad to report that Mummy was as wowed with the fit and the cuteness factor as I was and little bubs didn't burst into tears when we suited her up, which I took to be a big thumbs up because you know how picky these babies can be when the mood takes them!

  4. Oh my goodness they are just so cute. I'm 6 weeks away from giving birth to my second and would love to make something like that. Not sure my knitting skills are up to it though. I've just about finished a patchwork knitted blanket for baby and it has taken me since July! Off to check out your previous creations as I'm quite new to your blog. Fiona x

  5. Me again! Just checked out the previous things you made for your niece. So sweet! I love the pumpkin hat especially as we have one that was made for our little boy 2 years ago when he was in SCBU. A very lovely lady knitted pumpkin hats for all the babies in there at Halloween and it was so cute walking into the unit and seeing them all in their cots and incubators wearing their little pumpkins. So yours reminded me of that. Love the colours you used for the blanket also. I really struggled with the colours I've used in mine and have gone for quite pastel shades in the end. Fiona x
