These quirky creations will have you smiling whatever the weather. We love the individual faces in Kate Bruning’s three designs (moustaches are a must, of course) and the eye-catching shiny details
worked in metallic yarn. They’re perfect for pepping up a nursery, playroom, or a sofa that needs some handmade love.
