Who's that teddybear?

Yet another baby found it's way to this world. Last Saturday one of my closest friends gave birth to a boy, and naturally I thought that boy should have a small welcoming gift.

Pattern: my own
Yarn: Novita 7 Veljestä
Needles: 3 mm

This was a really quick knit. Took me only 2,5 hours. I guess an upcoming deadline really makes you faster. I practically finished these 15 min before I had to rush out of the door and hand over them to the new owners. Talk about making use of every single minute...

(By the way, the other teddybear just happens to look really sad in this picture, didn't look that sad for real!)

Already earlier this spring I also made this little baby coverlet out of leftover fabric for the same little boy. 

Last autumn I had to sew a bedcover corner during a course in interior textiles and just happened to stumble over this cute wadded fabric. The leftovers has ever since been lying around, waiting for someone who might need it.

 And yes, this is the kind of stuff we do at the university. We practise a lot of small details of things :) I guess it's important to learn stuff like this, but when the course if finished these small exercises become really useless. I mean, what do you do with just a corner?


  1. I suppose they are meant to serve as our teaching material in future... go figure. Cute mitts!

  2. I guess so... But when you don't really have any extra room for storage the temptation to throwing them away is huge! :)
