My Make Nine 2018 for Tilly

My Make Nine 2018 for Tilly

Hello there! Hope you are having a lovely day. Last time we met I shared with you my Make Nine for Me for 2018. Today I’m back to share with you nine makes I have picked out to make for Matilda aka Tilly my daughter. It’s rather ambitious of me to in essence have 18 projects to try & make in one year, but I’ve never been one to make life easy for myself & setting outrageous goals just seems to be the way that I roll! And besides, my makes for Tilly are all small things so surely they won’t take too long, right?!

So here they are, my Make Nine for Tilly…

Amigurumi Duck by One & Two Company

Tilly loves ducks, in fact it was one of the first words I think she learnt, after Dad, Nan & Mum. She loves playing a 5 Little Ducks game I have on my phone, & for a long time declared that any bird she saw was a ‘Duck!’ I will be making this duck softie for her 2nd Birthday in May.

When I was pregnant with Tilly & we found out we would be having a girl, I immediately hit Pinterest & Etsy saving all manner of gorgeous crochet dresses. Of course I never found the time to make any of them, so I knew I wanted to include a dress in my make nine for Tilly. I chose this one as I think it would be gorgeous in summer, but also good in the autumn to wear over tights & a t-shirt or long sleeve top.

I think leg warmers are just the coolest things & I think little girls & bubs look so sweet in them. Perfect for a bit of extra warmth over tights or leggings in Autumn/Winter.

La Vie en Rose Earflap Hat by Kirsten Holloway

I love this hat & think Tilly will look super cute in it. She looks good in just about any style hat. I love the combination of stitches in this pattern, & who could resist it with that giant pom pom on top!

Little Doily Bag by The Green Dragonfly

Girls with little bags to carry their treasures in, it’s the sweetest thing isn’t it? Tilly’s not quite at that stage yet but I’d love to make her a special bag from Mum.

The Adanya Warmer & The Braelyn Warmer by Velvet Acorn

Are these not the sweetest little girl head warmers/cowels! I love that they can be worn both ways, so versatile. It’s a great struggle to keep Tilly’s hair out of her face so a head warmer is perfect, so long as she keeps it on. I like the idea of a cowel rather than a scarf for Winter as less of a chance of strangling herself! I think I’ll make the Adayna out of cotton thread so it’s a bit cooler to wear in summer.

Motif Cardigan/Poncho by Patons

I bought this pattern book when pregnant with Tilly, I also bought the yarn & started to make the crochet squares, then I lost my making mojo big time until about half way through my second trimester & so never finished it. Tilly has a huge amount of lovely hand knit & crochet cardigans my mum has made her, so I have decided to use the square motif from the pattern & make a poncho with tassels instead.

Starlight Toddler Slippers by My Hobby is Crochet

When Tilly was a baby I had the hardest time keeping crochet booties on her feet & I’ve never been able to get her to keep slippers on either. I’m hoping I’ll have more success with these!

I have lots of other things I want to make for Tilly, toys, clothes etc. The first thing I make for her this year is actually not on this list, it will be this Amigurumi Lamb by Anatillea. I’m making this as an Easter present for Tilly. Then of course there’s Christmas makes & decoration makes for her room.

Oh if only there were more hours in the day, or if only I didn’t need to sleep!

Do you have a Make Nine for 2018? Tell me all about it, I’d love to see!

Happy Making.

Love,

Miss Leela x
