Knitting for a new baby

When my sister in law took me on my once in a life time trip to Europe, over two years ago now, I had the opportunity to go back to Harderwijk (the town in Holland I was born in), and meet family I hadn't seen since leaving in 1961 and also meeting new members of the family I had never met.
One of those new members is a cousin who has just had her first baby.
So out came my knitting needles and below is what I made for her, the yarn is Chenille and knits up beautifully.

The pram was coloured in with a pastel pencil and blended with a paper stump.
I used the same buttons for the prams wheels as for the shoulders of the little overalls.
The roses were made with a medium retro flower punch.

Thank you for taking the time to visit today.
