I made this not-so-little guy on commission. He was a retirement gift for a principal, whose graduating students receive the small version. He was hard work, but I'm proud of the result and I hope he's appreciated.

Love being an auntie!

Red Velvet Engagment Cakes

 After seeing/eating them at my 30th, my friend Amanda requested red velvet mini cupcakes for her (and her fiancĂ©, Nathan's) engagement cake. She wanted this to be their present since I was insisting on giving one.
The colour went beautifully with the Moroccan themed venue for the party
I'm very pleased with how the piping came out, though I was cleaning up those tiny round sprinkles for days!

Smocked singlets

One of the best ideas ever, smocked singlets are a quick and easy gift. I usually make sets of two or three for a new baby, in colours to suit the nursery or the parents' preferences.

Green and yellow for Ollie

Brights for Nicholas (Edinburgh - his mother is also a member of the Ankh-Morpork Knitter's [sic] Guild on Ravelry)

Pink for Peyton

Yellow for Tayah.

I also made a set for Harrison (the baby who received the natural coloured comfort toy of my last post) in 'woodland' colours but apparently forgot to photograph them, along with another set I sent overseas.
