Ms P's modelling debut!

Remember Ms P, my little niece? She's a little over 2 mths now and we decided that it might be time to kickstart her modelling career. Which we done so over the weekend.

There's the pair of
crocheted Mary Jane booties I made. It just barely fits her feet!

And with this crochet outfit consisting of a bonnet and dress, I was expecting it to be too way too big on her as it was for a 12 month old. I was wrong.

We didn't attempt to tie the ribbons under her chin as she's still little.

She's so cute in this that my sister is suggesting that a little red cape ala Little Red Riding Hood will be so cool!

We also dressed her in the suit I test knitted for Figheadh. It's still a little big on her (notice the sleeves and the pants) and she should still be able to wear it for a while.

By then, I was pretty upset as I realized that she's getting a little too grown up to even fit into some of the items I knitted/crocheted.

Take this set, for example:

And this:

Both are basically too small. She can't even put her feet into the white booties!

Moral of the story: If you have something hand knitted or crocheted, give it to the recipient and have them use it immediately!

Hmm...looks like I'll have to hold a toddlers KAL soon to keep up with her growth!

She's so darling! The things you've made for her (whether they fit or not :) are adorable too.

Beautiful! She looks like she's mad at you for putting Lachlann on her, though, I must say! Maybe she'll like it later! Lucky little one to have an auntie making such pretty things for her.

Ms. P is such a cutie! The things you made are beautiful, even if some of them don't fit.

She is lovely and such a great little model. The little Mary Jane's are so cute with the little flower.

I'm sure she'll not be short of toddler knitted/crocheted outfits!
