Woolen Blanket Babies
They're much bigger than the usual sleeping babies - Last Christmas I made a huge one as a mummy to all of the babies, she was from a cotton and wool tapestry cushion cover and was covered in a floral pattern. The initialed pair are from a beautiful wool blanket (sewn in 1939) and have cream leather ears, the other two are stitched with pompoms around their hoods to keep them warm and snuggly! I get their leather ears from the leather sewers by Brick Lane- they give me bags or scraps to reuse, all sorts of lovely colours.
