Hi, I am new promoting at Folksy

I am new at promoting on Folksy, I hope to make new Friends as I promote my shops on the Folksy Site.

Some of you may already have seen my first blog, I shall add projects as I do them and my fellow sellers at folksy

Here are my new project at present, one of many, I had twins over 30 years ago this month both were premature babies one 3lb 11oz and one 4lb 1 oz  it was hard to get items to fit them and I became interest in very small items.

I am presently making cocoons for prem babies to keep them warm when coming home for the first time.  This pattern also has a hat at present,

I have used a Shifio pattern, (Pattern 153 – Emmy Sac/Papoose size 10″ to 12″) I love these patterns as they are so clear and easy to use.  I rarely use patterns I like to make my own patterns but I would recommend these suppliers.

These are pictures of a completed cocoon which needs to be finished off, I am thinking maybe a shawl to go round baby aswell or for when baby bigger.  what do you think ?

Wife, mother, grandmother all my best work, now unable to work due to ill health, I have found my creative side again so much that I need to sell the extra items I make. It keeps me going, I like to swim and especially spend time with my family.
