Meet Fleur Tortoise!

Fleur is the newest member of my little bunch of knitted animals. They are all based on vintage patterns I have collected from the 1950s, 60s and 70s.

Each one is hand-knitted in 100% cotton.

Mr and Mrs Rabbit come in one-off outfits made from vintage fabrics.

Daisy Donkey is the sweetest, she is an old-fashioned seaside donkey with a floppy hat and flowers.

Lambie is a baby lamb with a sweet flower chain necklace.

The toys are, of course, Fair Trade made, and I have a few of each for sale in the Lark web shop now.

By the way I found a very very old knitting book at the oppy for booties, and some of them are just beautiful, like bunny ones, and I thought of you. Are you interested? I could put in the post....
