Fit for a Princess
Some things just make you stop in your tracks, have tears threaten, and make you offer up a thanks for how lucky you are. Today’s post is about one of those things.
I was up to my eyeballs in baby gift projects, birthday gift projects, and ideas that demanded exploring. Plus writing a free tutorial (nearly finished – stay tuned!), and planning my twinnies birthday when I was asked if I could make a “Frozen” style hat for a little girl, three, undergoing chemo. I’ll admit, I wondered how I could fit it in with everything else that HAD to be done.
And then I look and my little girls. Then about to turn three. Healthy. And not going through a treatment that terrifies adults. I said yes, because I’d do anything to make MY girls smile when they are unwell. This little one deserved the same.
Luckily a pattern had already been spotted by the Mum and relayed to me (the fabulous Ice Queen Hat by Mango Tree Crafts) and I knew the Luxury Pure Wool 8 ply from Bendigo Woolen Mills would be perfect. Just took a couple of false starts to adjust the pattern from being for a worsted weight yarn to 8 ply.
I think it turned out well, as did the little handbag I made to match.
What do you think? And should I write you up a tutorial for the bag?
