My Creative Space - Cute

We're overloading on Easter goodness at our house.

I've been finishing off these pencil toppers to go in Maddy and Eloise's Easter baskets.


To make something similar, cut out a bunny head shape, embroider with a cross for the nose and two french knot eyes. Stitch together with a blank back piece on a sewing machine, leaving a hole at the bottom to pop the pencil in. Put a bit of glue around the top of your pencil and carefully pop it inside the rabbit head. You could also use these as tree decorations by adding a ribbon at the top.

My knitting needles have been click-clacking away too.

This hat is going to a special little 6 month old boy. He hasn't had a great start in life but is off to live with his very special Aunty and I wanted to make him something just for him.

Eloise and I hit the Spotlight sale this morning. She wants to learn to knit and at age three and a half, I may be asking for trouble saying yes but she is really keen!

 She chose these colours to make a scarf. 


We treated ourselves to a coffee and a fluffy after all our hard work shopping. How cute is this?



We've been collecting feijoas from the garden and turning them into crumble... yum!


Now all I have to do is clean up all the mess we made! Have a great Easter!

Love the pencil toppers! And the fluffy was so cute. Neat they do those sorts of things for kids. Great to hear your daughter is so keen on being crafty!

such delicious craftiness happening at your place ... good luck with teaching your daughter to knit. i find most littlies don't really master it until they're closer but 10 but it's good to get them started early. p love the sweet pencil toppers. i bet they'll be a big hit.

Oh I can't believe you have feijoas already! Love the fluffy and good luck with the knitting!

Gorgeous photos. I know a little rhyme to help with the knitting if you are interested. (Need to look it up)

you guys have been busy. We've been collecting feijoas too - we all love them and have been feasting lots :)

Michelle said...

Looks like you have been very busy. Good luck with the knitting lessons - maybe she could master French knitting if the needles are too hard.

What a busy bee you've been! Love the little wascally wabbits and a big cheer for your little one wanting to learn to knit...maybe a glass of wine and a lie down for Mumma after though! Thanks for popping into my new little blog and for your lovely comment. Hope all is well in your little slice of the world :)

Wow - lots of really excellent stuff at your place - I especially love the bunny. I wish we had feijoas here - what do they taste like?

Cotton Kiwi said...

Thanks for all the lovely comments and the tips on knitting lessons. I sat with her on my knee and showed her the basics. She waited patiently for me to finish and then said "Can I do my style of knitting now please Mum?". In other words, I haven't listened to a word you have said and I just want to do my own thing! Definately a glass of wine and lie down moment Steph!
Yardage girl, feijoas are a really fragrant tasting fruit if that makes sense. Custardy with a gritty texture. Definately an acquired test for most but great in crumbles!
