It's Dulcie's birthday tomorrow. She'll be three! Can you believe it?! Being mid clear-out, we decided to go low-key on presents, not wanting to re-clutter the place already, but I think the simple little things we're giving Dulcie will be well received as they're all things chosen most specifically for her. As well as a skipping rope and a Ladybird book of The Billy Goats Gruff, she'll be getting a hot water bottle, something she's been coveting for ages. And that's it.
I made this cosy cover for her hot water bottle from a lovely jumper (that originally belonged to my friend Lorna before it came my way) that I accidentally shrank and then purposefully felted. It's so snuggly. The buttons at the neck hole allow the bottle to be taken out so we should be able to replace it if we ever need to. I hope Dulcie will be snuggling up with this beauty for many years to come.
Right, I'd best be off. I've got a Billy Goats Gruff cake to make... Wish me luck!
