Itty-Bitty Yeti

Have I  not been threatening for some time, to make a tiny yeti bunting for a baby? Shown here: exhibit Audra, 15 lbs. 5 oz. of adorable. Audra was a champ. Word on the street is she doesn’t like cameras, but she kept her cool today.

Audra plays innocent here but you know she’s the type of abominable snowman that could straight-up rip your arm from your socket. If by “arm” I meant, “tea scone”, and by “your socket” I meant, “a table of modest height that she was clinging to earlier today”.

So who doesn’t like daddies-holding-babies pictures? If you don’t, you have a lot of growing up to do.

Anyway I wrote a bit about construction in the captions of the Flickr tagset. This bunting is listed in my wee Etsy shop and is scheduled for display at a local business – along with two other “monstrous” offerings I’m currently cooking up.

  1. Good Morning Kelly,

    THIS IS ADORABLE and the kiddo as well!!! I am still smiling and laughing after reading this post. :) :)

    P.S. Hope to finish up “flannel shirt” number 2 today. LOVE your SAL. I still haven’t looked at the pattern instructions one time to construct one of my shirts. Your instructions are THAT good.

  2. @Judy
    Thank you so much! If only we all dressed as expressively as a well-dressed baby!

    I am so pleased to hear you enjoy my instructions. It was difficult to get quality photos in the low light of winter (since my camera equipment is lacking). I am so glad to hear my hard work paid off.

    (by the way – if you find errata in the sew-a-long, please let me know so I can repair it for those who may use it some day!)

  3. Oh, the palpitations. Amazing!

  4. This post also wins the internets! Love it.

  5. Thanks ladies! I wish I would have gotten a video. Seeing the yeti in motion was hilarious. It really looks like a monster.
