When I hear a friend is having a baby, my first thought is, "What can I make them?".
Well, actually. That's my second thought. My first thought is, "YAY! I love babies!!!"
I almost always come back to this adorable Henny Penny and her little chicks.
The pattern is from Anna Maria Horner's book Handmade Beginnings.
So when I heard that our sweet and adorable friend was pregnant with her first
and that it was a little boy, I pulled out Handmade Beginnings off of my bookshelf and got to cutting out. We decided to go with a slightly more boyish color scheme, while still choosing a print that would be suitable for Henny Penny herself.
She has six adorable chicks tucked under her wings too.
I think she's happy with that.
