Sunday Loves – Hello Kitty Ballerina!

Yesterday was my niece’s 3rd birthday. She loves Hello Kitty and all things pink so I just had to make her a Hello Kitty in a pink ballerina dress!

Hello Kitty Ballerina
Isn’t she cute?! She’s made from the book ‘Hello Kitty Crochet’ using these (dk) yarns:
White and black (black was used for eyes and whiskers) – King Cole Smooth
Pink – King Cole Bamboo Cotton
And the tutu fabric was bought from ebay. I chose a glittery one to add extra prettiness!
To make the tutu I cut 2 big circles out of the fabric (over big so they could bunch up) and two smaller circles inside. I threaded white thread through and put Kitty in the middle. Pulled it tight and tied a knot, then used one end to sew it on securely. I then trimmed it because it was a bit too big and then I was done!

I made the original Kitty a few months back that I don’t think I’ve shown you yet, I’ll show you sometime next week!

Etsy Finds Friday – Special Edition

A day late again…. If I carry on like this I will have to change the name to ‘Etsy Finds Saturday’! Doesn’t quite have the same feel though does it?

Anyway, today’s theme is a special edition:
HALLOWEEN!!

As it is Halloween on Wednesday I thought I would show you some Halloween-themed finds from Etsy ^_^ There is so many wonderful things so I decided to split my mosaic into 4 sets:

Costumes:
Baby Dress and Headband
Adult Iron Man 2 Ironette Costume (Really really want this!)
Children’s Witch Costume (Adorable!!)
Disney’s ‘Tangled’ Wig

Decorations:
Trick Or Treat Banner (I love how this has netting in-between each letter)

Halloween is not very big here in the Uk. I would love to go to America for Halloween one day! It always looks so amazing ♥ Are you going to/having a Halloween party this year? We will be putting up a few decorations, carving a pumpkin (If we can get one in time!) and handing out sweets :) Not dressing up though, I don’t have anything I could wear!

Whatever you do, I hope you have a great time :)
