Beanie Baby

This woollen hat means a lot to me.

It was knitted well but I decided to take a lot of artistic license when drawing it.

Here it is …

I don’t have it, which is a pity, it belongs to the Hospital where one of my children was born.

It was lovingly popped onto my baby’s head in the first fresh moments of his life, by a midwife who helped me with a birth that was traumatic/beautiful/surreal.

He looked like the sweetest little Gumnut Baby, and considering my near-obsession with May Gibbs, it completely melted my heart.

Whoever it is that sits and knits beanies for newborns, I’m sending you a big ball of appreciative energy every time I see this photo. Thankyou!
