A red belated birthday dress

I didn't quite finish the red dress in time for Bea's birthday. Luckily she didn't notice! It is still too big anyway as I made the 18-24 months size as shes such a giant baby!

I'm very happy with the way it turned out. Its quite simple but the heart detailing is lovely.

Here's all the info:
The pattern is Sweetheart by Tora Froseth Design. It is pretty easy to follow and knitted on circular needles which was a first for me.
The yarn I used was King Cole 4ply merino in scarlet. It is quite soft although probably a bit itchy directly against the skin.

I think I will make another Tora Froseth dress for Bea at some point.

Shop updates

A couple of updates in my etsy shop Little Green Button today:

I have one length of lace bunting left over after two big orders, although can make more to order.

I have also just listed only one Little Red Riding Hood book. I only had enough paper to make one for now but will add more soon!

Bea turned one

I realised I haven't posted since Bea's birthday so thought I would share a few photos.

Here is the birthday girl herself at her teddy bears picnic.

This is Trixie, the special bear we bought her. You can't tell here but she is navy blue. We thought it would be nice to have a 1st birthday present she can keep.

We also got her this anniversary edition Fisher Price school house. I remember playing with the same one myself when I was little!

I can't believe she is one. That was the fastest year of my life!
