For some reason, I love knitting from toy books! Little stuffed animals, baby toys, dolls capture my eyes! Everything seems to be cuter! This is the Cat Pyjama Case from Zoë Mellor's Knitted Toys: 25 Fresh and Fabulous Designs. It's definitely a book to have in your knitting library. I love how it turned out; I do not use it as a pyjama case, however, it can be used to store anything and since the back has an envelope fold, you can insert a fitted pillow.

I've been wanting to make these cute coin purses for a while but it's impossible to find internal flex frames in Toronto's craft and fabric stores! Luckily I've managed to remove a flex frame from a used [and rather ugly] leather jewellery pouch. I used the U-Handbag tutorial and it came together in a snap! I absolutely love it! I'm surprised by how roomy it is!It's unfortunate that I won't be able to make more, at least for now...I have in mind a really cute purse design I would have loved to try out, but I guess I have to wait.

Here is an adorable knit bunny I made from the Last Minute Knitted Gifts–“Loveable Toys” pattern, by Marion Edmonds. I found this to be the best pattern for knitting bunnies. The tie and carrot were completely free-handed.
