I also like making things by hand as I can put love into it. Here is an example of the Snowy costume I made for my daughter, (who is 8 years old amd mad about Tintin and his dog Snowy). I made this for her school's World Book Day.
She is holding a little dog she has had since small who she adores, and what is that round his neck? It is a scarf, handmade by my daughter. This is her very first knitting and I am so proud.
I hope that I pass on the love of handmade to her, the next generation, so she can own items crafted with care, and also make own own unique items, made with love.
