My niece was born yesterday! I made these for her...

The panda hat is from the Beanie Hat pattern from Nikki Trenches book 'Cute and Easy Crocheted Baby Clothes', with added panda features.  For the booties I used this pattern for inspiration http://sensitivesnapdragon.blogspot.co.uk/2011/11/boy-clog-slippers-pattern.html but kind of did my own thing!



I made the viking hat from the same pattern, but put an extra round in at the top, to make the top of the hat more pointy instead of flat (so it looked more like a helmet!) then added horns to the side.  I can confirm the baby looked hilarious in this!



The cardigan is also a pattern from the same book, I think called Pocket Trim Cardigan, but I missed off the pocket, and altered the arms, and added flowers!  I've never made any clothing before, so I'm quite pleased with this, even though the button band is a bit funny!





I also made a bunny!



Phew!  I wish I hadn't procrastinated for 9 months, I made all of these in a week!
