After the surprising success of the patchwork quilt, I’ve been asked to make a play mat for S-‘s friend’s newborn. I want to have a big, colourful mess of squares and pockets, stuffed with little toys and things that feel interesting.

I started the first of the toys to be included with the throw last night and finished her today. Apparently, she looks like Alison Uttley’s Little Grey Rabbit however the chintz factor of her dress was not intentional – I just used a big pussy bow to cover my wonky neck join… I’m not sure yet whether I’ll make her a husband in brown cord trousers and a tartan scarf but if I do, I’ll post the various stages of it on here, in case anyone else wants to make one.
