I can’t help but share this beautiful custom order with you all! I absolutely love these two little makes… one a peplum hem jumper, the other a trapeze style jumper with delicate crochet flower patches around the hem line.
A lovely customer named Penny reached out to me through the Etsy shop requesting these two jumpers in AU size 3 for her little girl, she had some specific colours in mind and after a few emails back and forth we finally decided on these stunning colourways.
The peplum hem jumper is made from Bendigo Woollen Mills Alpaca Rich 8 ply yarn in the colour Rich Sky Mist, and I can’t even begin to tell you how soft this yarn feels. The trapeze style jumper is made from Bendigo Woollen Mills Classic 100% Wool 8 ply yarn in the main colour Claret Mix, with Ember Mix for the collar and cuffs. I then used a selection of embroidery thread in a mixture of similar and contrasting tones to crochet the flowery patches around the hem.
As always, it has been a pleasure to have made something especially for another person and what I have found since starting Handmade For Babe is that the joy is three fold; it comes first from the process of making the garment, second the satisfaction of the finished product and finally the joy in knowing it has a purpose.
