Another Sophie...

Another baby girl, another Sophie! I wanted to try a combination of knitting and some sowed-on patches, and when I got this fabric a few weeks ago in a RAK, I just knew that I had to combine it with a nice 'old' soft pink yarn.
In my stash I had enough balls of Patons Fairytale 4-ply to knit a sweater (which I actually started, but frogged), and when I touched it, I thought it would be perfect for a cuddly bunny. 
For the stitching (the eyes and nose, the little heart -  bless - and to sew on the fabric) I used grey alpaca from my stash and the gifted fabric, light pink with little flowers. It's just beautiful!

On little Sophie's bum I stitched a patch with the letter 'E', to make sure everyone knows it belongs to the baby girl who will get it tomorrow!

A big kiss to you all from Sophie E! (Who can't wait to cuddle little Elbrich tomorrow morning!

Só cute!
Wat een schattig konijntje, vooral met die patch op z'n billen.
Daar zal Elbrich vast heel blij mee zijn (later).
