Who's The Daddy?!

For my husband's first Father's Day, I wanted to create a personalised card featuring our little boy.

I thought it would be easy...

Who said never to work with children and animals?!

What should have taken a few seconds took twenty minutes! I lay our baby boy into his cot and handed him a printed greeting.

I snapped away, hoping to get a decent image...
I soon needed to print another greeting as the original one became very creased and soggy!

We were nearly there...
Eventually, after a few tweaks at picmonkey.com, I came up with this image ready for printing to the card....
The pointed finger was definitely a fluke!

Peaky Blinder

The 'Peaky Blinder' style has recently appeared on the high street and why should my little one miss out?
Back in 2013, the BBC brought us 'Peaky Blinders', a drama series set in Birmingham just after WWI. It was based on the historic gang who sewed razor blades in the peak of their caps.
I purchased this Scally Cap pattern from Etsy and making the most of the nice weather (and our little one fast asleep in the shade), I sat in the sun and crocheted away.
I used a brown DK yarn and a 4mm crochet hook.
 Our little one seemed to enjoy modelling his new cap, though I am not sure how long it will stay on his head!
