The classic cardigan, a cosy blanket, practical washcloths and baskets, pram toys, and even that prerequiste Teddy Bear with movable limbs and expressive face are all designs included in this book.Chosen for their inherent softness, animal fibres such as baby alpaca, cashmere and extra-fine merino are complemented by sustainable plant fibres that are breathable, comfortable and soft, Erika has chosen the perfect materials that accommodate every baby's needs. The book also boasts over 50 colour photographs from leading interiors and fashion photographer Kristin Perers. Create beautiful items that will decorate your baby's first months as well as be practical to have around, or give one as a loving gift at a baby shower.
