My darling friend Bianca became a mother of Lachlan James in 2014; I had the pleasure of seeing Lachlan grow from an “Appleseed” to a sweet new born baby!
I felt this enormous will to do something very personal for Bianca and her bundle of joy, so I knitted a set of nappy cover and a cute apple style beanie… isn’t he cute!
You would be wondering why is everything to do with apple? … Well, Bianca and Craig’s surname is Appleby !
Bianca got pregnant of her second child last year and even though I didn’t witness him growing, he grew in my heart, too.
Craig and Bianca were so beautiful and came to be with me and farewell my James; it meant so much to me! Later on, (it was actually the day I got his death certificate in the mail) they organised a super cool lunch with Tavy and I here , bringing with them lots of cheer and also sweet Lachlan and the little baby brother still in Bianca’s womb.
I am so flattered that they shared the news of Patrick Eli’s arrival to this world with me among other very close friends, too (before making it official); it also brought me to tears knowing his beautiful name! My lovely late husband’s name is James Patrick! both names are in between this sweet couples children.
I wanted to make something special for this new baby as well as I did for Lachie and then I saw a beautiful picture of a teddy in Pinterest, I followed the link and it was a free pattern by Simply Notable, where Julie shares for FREE this amazing pattern, I loved it!
PS: Simply Notable also have the Spanish translation available …yeah, by me!!! – they were so cool letting me be part of their fabulous blog! please visit them!
But I couldn’t just make 1, I wanted to make one for each one of them 🙂
Most of my friends will remember when I posted this picture on Instagram, most people thought I was knitting a bikini brassiere! But they were actually the heads of the teddys.
