A rattling great gift idea

I was delighted to discover that Lorraine Pistorio at Rainebo Designs had rattles!

This means I can have three different kinds of gifts, for those who have different needs and budgets.

Look at this cute elephant ring rattle!


The flower barbell is just lovely...



And a bee! Those bright colours are sure to grab the attention of any baby!


The pattern suggested that the smily rainbow rattle could be velcroed at each end...


But stitching end to end makes it perfect for little hands to hold without fussing over velcro =)


I LOVE those bright colours!

I sold the above pictured rattles to my sister for use in her business - feel free to pop over and check it out through the link below =)

Just love this....

I don't always get photos of my toys in their forever homes, but this one is really cute, so just had to share =)


That is a large bunny and a month old bub - almost the same size! 💓

Ballerina Bunny


One of the more popular bunnies has been my variation on the small bunny. I adventurously made up a pattern for skirt, and are now having fun from time to time changing the colours used to create gorgeous friends for girls...


My first was this little girl, bought as a Christmas present for Lucy! I do hope Lucy loves her little bunny! =) 


Then I was asked to make another ballerina for a 3 year old girl who LOVES ballet...


Another perfect Christmas present I hope! =)


Next I needed to give a present myself to a young girl as a going away present...


She is loved to bits, and my little friend has no chance of forgetting me ;)



I am sure there will be more ballerinas... And maybe we can do different skirts =)

Ella the elephant

I have more than one pattern from the lovely Lorraine Pistorio at Rainbo Designs that I am itching to make =) 

And finally in October I got around to making Ella - she is a really cutie - just check out those ears!!!!



I hope to make more of those "as yet to be made by me" patterns soon 
-
 keep your eye out, you may see one that fits someone you know!

A delightful duo!


Early next year a little boy will be born in America. As he grows up he will learn that his bedroom is the one which looks delightfully like a woodland. And I am hoping that his favourite little "friends" will be the above pictured bunny and his matching friend, seen below...


And yes, that hat comes off - I can't decide when he looks cuter!!!!



Putting them together, you can see just how well they match - that little boy will perhaps be thankful that his grandparents and auntie got together to decide on "welcome to the world" presents!




I am hoping it will be possible to do more combinations like this - it was a LOT of fun!

Bunnies, bunnies and more bunnies

It is pretty obvious that so far, bunnies are most popular request at Betsy's Boutique.

Here is the gallery of those done this year, though I am working on another order now which includes a bunny! =)

I love the way that the different yarns change the bunny to make it so individual, and even as the producer of these bunnies, I find that there are some of them that I really love more than others! So far, I have enjoyed the small bunnies most - they are not too big and not too small...


Which one is your favourite?
