five currant buns...

In a bakers shop....
Made these knitted currant buns for the nursery at school for them to use while singing the five currant buns song.

Also made a simple drawstring bag to keep them all safe in. I didn't put the cherry on the top as i wanted them to be child safe.



Iv'e already got another batch on the go.

Brilliant idea!you clever thing,nurseries and playgroups love things like that.I used to work in a pre-school and the children loved to use visual props.I bet you'll have some orders for those!

Hi Sarah,
Please can I order a set of the buns and a bag,they are gorgeous and a fabulous idea.
After Christmas will be fine as I know you will be so busy.
I am feeling much better and it's nice to feel like sitting at the PC reading and drinking tea again,

Sarah,

These are great, not too sure (as I can't knit) but could you do a little red circle on top from red wool?

I will have to have some of these in the new year too, let me know when you are back making things again.

The latters are done with alphabet stamps and ink.

What a lovely idea, and I love the fact that you have printed the title on the bag, I have seen that around a bit but have never figured out how you do it. Too cute! Jennifer
