I started with the bassinet. I had an idea that I had been pondering on for some time now. I wanted to cover it in embroidery, bullion and grub roses. I spent a full day embroidering this bassinet in flowers and adding a few glass pearls to it as well. The lace I used to finish the edge of the bassinet is antique, early 1900's.
Every baby needs a warm shawl to curl up in, after a few attempts I managed to come up with this soft pink one.
All that we needed now was a little baby to curl up in her new bed. This little bonnet baby is the first of my new weeny baby design. She is just 6 inches in length and her name is Lily.
I crocheted and knitted her little outfit from vintage cotton. This is the smallest I have ever worked with, using just 1mm sized needles. But I think it worked... a tiny outfit for a tiny baby!
I will be drawing the Bonnet Baby Giveaway Monday morning AEST. Good luck to all who have entered.
