Toy Knits

on Monday, September 28, 2009


Meet Clarisse.
This is my first attempt at knitted toys. This one is from an egg cosy pattern at the link below. I just added some legs. She's very small, just as tall as a small pepper mill but adorable and floppy. I'm hooked.
Here's my inspiration:
Little Cotton Rabbits
I'm working on my technique but Clarisse is such a favorite at my house and at ballet.
I like the process a lot and I seem to be leaning more to that hobby as it is so easy to transport. I'm still working on my Baby Jane but she's taking a back seat right now as I'm thinking about Christmas gifts! Hope you like her!

I'm working on a post from the Atlanta Quilt show. Stay tuned!
Stay well,
Lindsey
