This is the cutest little knitting pattern. One that I developed to meet a need for work, but I’ve used it for ourselves a few times now. They make great decorations, little toys or even a little learning aid. This free knitting pattern really is quick and easy to knit and then stitch up. They’re also a wonderful way to use up the odd little bits of yellow, black and white you may have lying around.
If you follow the blog then you will know that my little man has recently potty trained. I would love to take credit but to be honest it was all on him. He was simply ready. One thing that helped enormously though was a reward chart. When he started to get a little bored of using the potty every time, a reward chart really kept him motivated to keep going.
What I was really surprised of though was how well the Bear did with one too. At 4-years-old I thought she was past that, but as soon as she saw the little mans, she desperately wanted one too. A quick scribble later and she had her very own. We decided to focus on food for her as she was such a fussy eater and I was so impressed that within a week she was trying new foods daily. This was simply amazing for her. AMAZING! I was kicking myself for not trying them sooner.
So, here’s what we did.
Last week we made a fabulous little owl cushion which the Bear got for Christmas as a craft pack. It was a really quick make that was easy and really simple for little people to get their heads – and hands! – around.
However, as soon as we were finished, the first thing that Henry said was “where mine?” with a sorrowful little face on him. It’s a face I can’t resist and because he knows his mama so well and has me wrapped around his little finger, I scurried off to see what I could whip up for him. Here’s what I came up with.
The weather has seriously taken a turn for the worse this week hasn’t it? After such a mild Christmas the cold blast has been a little bit of a shock this week. Luckily though, I knitted this stash busting chunky bobble hat a few weeks ago which has been keeping little ears warm!
As this is such a quick and easy knit, I thought I’d share what I did to make it with you all.
Before the chaos of Christmas and all things red and green decends, I wanted to share this really quick make with you. One of the Bears favourite flowers are dandelions. We live on the edge of an overgrown green space, a space that gets littered with dandelions each year. My two love nothing better than picking them, making wishes as they do.
Darcie noticed the other day that they were all gone and no amount of explanation about the seasons would console her of the fact that she couldn’t pick some dandelions. So, we thought we would make our own. Here’s how to make your own dandelions. A quick and easy craft for adults or children to create fabulous flowers. Perfect for play or simply to display.
