An Aussie Blankie

So far Lorraine Pistorio has not designed a koala blankie, but I had a customer who just HAD to have one!!!

So I did my best... Popping my koala on this pile of leaves!

Probably not the prettiest koala, but maybe with a little more practice I will perfect it ☺

Look at that colour!!!

This colourpillar (my new name for it) is SO bright! 

A really fun project, and although not ordered, it was snapped up by an excited buyer in no time!

I am hoping to get more orders of the colourpillar - in different colours - it would be SO much fun!

2017's big project!

It took several months between doing orders for paying customers, but I was so thankful to finish my biggest project ever in late August! 

I wanted to knit a BIG blanket for our son, one to last a lifetime, to always be a tangible reminder of his Mummy's love ☺

You can just see his cheeky face peeping over the blanket on the left there!!!

I was SO happy when I put it on his bed, and it was SO big! It is SO warm too!!!

New rattles!

When a customer asks for a toy I have a pattern for, but have not yet knitted up, I get excited ☺

Think I have mentioned that before!!!!

So let me introduce the cow rattle!

I think it looks great!! What about you?

I also got an order for a duck rattle...

That topnotch of feathers is pretty cute, right? ☺

There are still a few rattle patterns I haven't made up yet, but one day.... ☺

One of my favourite things

Some animals come out just right, 
and this happened recently 
when a new grandmother ordered a few animals...

I don't know which of those you would pick as a favourite...

but here is mine!!!!

Isn't that just the sweetest face ever?

Looks soooooooo cute!!!!

Betsy's Boutique brings happiness to more than just babies!

Some people think toys are just for kids...

But adults - particularly women seem to enjoy a cuddly friend...

Is there someone you could give a cuddly toy to? 

A lonely person who would appreciate the thought that someone cared enough to give them a gift which would warm their heart?

I love my blankie!

I recently ran a competition on Facebook.

I was looking for pictures of a Betsy toy with its friend. 

I didn't get many responses - but those I got were fun ☺

Here is a little girl who loves her elephant blankie!!!

I love these pictures - they do a great job of selling my work ☺
