I have been busy making lots of knitted goodies for my little girl’s Easter basket. I had a vision of filling it with cute little knits, and so far, I have achieved my goal!
I started with the Little Birds pattern by Katie Startzman. It’s very easy and produces a sweet, realistic little birdie. I opted for a legless bird, since they would probably be ripped off first. I’m hoping the delicate little felt beak will stay on for more than a day! 🙂
Number two finished knit is the adorable Knit Bunnies pattern by Artsy Fartsy Mama. It is a quick knit reminiscent of washcloth bunnies that my mom made for our Easter parties at school. This is an easy design, as it’s a garter stitch square that is cleverly sewn to make a bunny. What’s not to love? With a little embellishments for a face and tail, it’s done in a jiffy! I’m planning on making a few more of these to give away as prizes for our family’s annual Easter party.
My final completed project is from the book Itty Bitty Toys by Susan B. Anderson. This book is a must have if you like knitting toys! I pretty much love anything she designs, and Egg to Bluebird and a Little Nest Too has got to be one of my favorites. It’s so clever and easy to make. I was surprised at how quickly I completed this toy. The instructions are also very well written! I can’t wait to make more reversible toys for my girl and her friend!
