Another Finished Wallaby

I finished this last Wednesday but between the 4th of July and the craziness of life, I didn't show it to you all. This is my first "girl" Wallaby and I used Plymouth Encore Worsted again. It is a great workhorse yarn for kids clothes. The pink was very fun to work with. This is for my godsister's daughter, Robin. She's 4 years old and I am giving it to her today. I doubt seriously in this heat she'll try it on but I'll try.

Jennifer suggested putting a gift of some sort in pocket - great idea. Don't you remember receiving clothes when you were little and trying to act excited but not really being excited? When I made one for Robin's brother, Nick, I put in a small water gun. Robin is definitely big into dress up so I found this fake gold and diamond necklace I had to wear for a wedding 15 years ago and never have used since. That is what I'm putting in the pocket - she'll love it!

Estella: It's so cute! It's sure to be a big heat, I mean, hit. I guess these 100 degree temperatures are getting to me. Can't wait to see pictures of the kiddos wearing their wallabies. That will be fantastic. Great work.
