Wedding gift no. 6: Baby blanket

This the last one :D A baby blanket with a bunny head ^^

derpy eyes.

I know it looks like the head isn't in the centre, but it is! :D

I don't have any instructions for this, I "invented" the instructions by myself :D At first I just made a big granny square. The head is just a ball, and the ears are small "tubes" :D Me so creative \o/ The yarn is 100% acryl, the same yarn as I used in the onesie I posted earlier. The eyes are made of felt, and the mouth is sewn with pink yarn. 

I must say that I really love this one :D I LOVE animal themed baby blankets, and I'm crazy about bunnies. Maybe I'm gonna make one for myself, lol XD

Wedding gift no. 5: Baby onesie/body

Here's a baby onesie I made ^^

Unfortunately, I don't have the instructions anymore >___< This onesie was a mix of two different instructions :D The onesie had no sleeves, so I added the sleeves from some hoodie instructions. 

I don't remember the actual yarn either XD I'm sorry... I mean, I don't remember the brand, but it was called Pehmoinen (=Soft) and it's 100% acryl. So it really is soft *__* 

I'm not that into the doggie-patch :D It's so... old-fashioned :D So 90's XD But it would have looked really boring otherwise so I had to put something there :D

Wedding gift no. 4: Baby dungaree

Here's a baby shorts dungaree! ^^

I really love the yarn in this one. It was so much fun to work with 'cos it changes color all the time! It keeps the working very interesting :D My mum bought the yarn from Lidl, so it doesn't have any special brand (the package just says Sock Yarn, lol XD), but the material is 48% cotton, 39% wool and 13% polyamid. Crochet hook I used was 3mm.

The instructions I used are from a blog called Linda's Crafty Corner. It's a very nice craft blog! You should check it out ^^

I think I put too many buttons in the legs :D But oh well, at least they stay closed! XD (wait..... that sounded so wrong.............) AND. The teddy bear in the front was so hard to find -____-;; It was very hard to find ANY fun fabric patches that can be ironed. But in the end I found some, luckily.

Right now, I'm working on another dungaree, 'cos a friend ordered one from me ^^ I use the same yarn, but I'm not sure if I'm gonna use the same green on the edging, and also I have to find another patch with a boy-theme :D Thank God Jyväskylä has a very good selection in that case :D

Wedding gift no. 3: Baby hoodie

Hello peeps! Here's a baby hoodie I made for my niece! (Yes, it's gonna be a baby giiiirl ^^ <3)

The hoodie was made by using these instructions, finally something in English as well, yaaay! I think this was the first English crochet instruction that I had ever used, so it was pretty challenging at first :D But after that, I have only used English instructions, because there is so much more awesome instructions available in the Internet in English, the Finnish instructions are so lame .___. And to be honest, I don't think I could read the Finnish ones anymore XDDD

Unfortunately I can't remember the name of the yarn, Novita Baby or something it was o__O But it's 100% acryl and I used 4mm hook.
