It's a boy!

My friend had her first child on 16th of January and she got a cutest little boy I've ever seen! I immidiately started to stitch something for the boy when I heard that he was born. I stitched him a ready-to-stitch bunny and a Somebunny to Love designs which I finished as a pacifier pouch. They live so far away that I sent these in post and I got a message today (with a photo of the baby holding the bunny, so sweet!) that they had received the gift so here are some pictures. :)

 

The Somebunny chart I stitched for the pacifier pouch is from The World of Cross Stitching magazine, issue 140. I stitched it on white 28ct Brittney evenweave fabric, 1 over 1. It's tiny little bunny, only about 4,1 x 3,6cm. :)

  

On the bunny's bib I stitched a blue elephant and a mouse from The World of Cross Stitching magazine, issue 126. I changed the colours of the elephant to DMC 341 and 3747 since the original colours were more turquoise than blue and didn't fit the colour of the bunny. This one is stitched with 2 strands on the bib's aida fabric.

 

Here are some pictures of the pacifier pouch. It has velcro on the strap so it can be attached to a diaper bag or to a pram. I have seen some of these in the internet but I didn't find a pattern so I made one myself.
