Debbie Bliss Blankets Bears and Bootees.
Blankets, Bears and Bootees is a charming collection of nursery essentials that will delight every new parent and their baby.
Based around a trio of core baby items - blankets, teddy bears and bootees - Debbie Bliss has designed a range of nursery accessories, cuddly toys and garments. Combining the softest luxury yarns with irresistible designs, she has created a truly desirable collection of hand knits for the newborn baby. A snug blanket is a must-have baby accessory and Debbie has included a choice of seven different styles. Each project is a beautiful design in its own right, whilst others can be made to accompany another project - for example, the garter stitch Striped Blanket is a wonderfully simple piece to knit but to make it extra special you can accompany it with the Striped Mouse. Likewise, you could team the Blanket Stitch Blanket with the matching bootees and toy bunny. Debbie has created a collection of exquisite toys that would take pride of place in any child's toybox - from the quintessential teddy bear to wonderfully tactile Building Blocks and a Little Bird toy that echoes the design of a squidgy, soft Big Bird Beanbag. The book is illustrated with over 75 colour photographs from leading children's fashion photographer Ulla Nyeman.
