A perfect gift for a brand new little person
There are those times when friends and family announce that they’re going to have a baby. What a joyful occasion!
Such a special time merits a very special gift.
You can’t get more special than a hand made crocheted bootie and hat set, all presented in it’s own cute white shoebox.
Ladybird newborn boxed set.
Kitty cat newborn boxed set
The idea behind these boxed sets is to provide a gender neutral gift that can be given to prospective parents even before they announce whether the stork brought them a fairy or a pixie.
Worked up in colours other than pink or blue, these boxed sets consist of a cute beanie hat to fit newborn and matching t-bar booties.
Ladybird beanie and booties
Kitty cat set complete with ears and whiskers!
All sets feature unique designs and carefully painted wooden buttons on the booties and matching crocheted appliques on the hats.
Look at the cute kitten faces
Matching cat face on the beanie
Ladybird buttons with matching 3d ladybirds on the hat.
The sets cost just £15 +p&p which I think represents incredible value for a hand crafted unique gift. ( I also try and infuse them all with oodles of love).
UPDate: Brand new sets hot off the hook
Ladybird baby set with super cute antennae
Beautiful rainbow shoes with matching rainbow beanie
Definitely bright and beautiful.

Right, off I go.

I loved Rainbow. The classic telly program featuring Zippy, George and Bungle( and of course , Geoffrey,Rod, Jane and Freddy.)
I have to profess a preference for Zippy and George. I loved Zippy’s cheek and slightly arrogant character. His confidence was charming and he was decidedly edgy in comfortable Kids telly land. George was just sweet. Who could possibly resist a ( camp)pink Hippo? Certainly not me.
I can’t say the same for Bungle. There was something decidedly dodgy about that bear. I never liked his tiny face in his big brown head and I found him whiny, annoying and just a little bit creepy.( Sorry, am I over investing in this imaginary character that was clearly just a man in a bear suit? ) Aha! That’s what it is, he was a man in a suit, Zippy and George were real, albeit real puppets.
Bungle was just a man in a bear suit.( Keep repeating that to yourself Diane)
I’m glad I’ve cleared that up for myself there.
So, I made a finger puppet set of Rainbow. I’m really proud of how they turned out. Of course I made them in order of preference: Zippy first, followed by George, the Rainbow and then reluctantly…. ( shivers) creepy Bungle.
My Rainbow finger puppets
I did think about including Geoffrey and Rod, Jane and Freddy but I’m not too sure I’d do them justice. ( and what did Rod and Freddy actually look like? )So I left it at the puppets plus the creepy man in a bear suit.
