Baby You Can Drive My Car

Baby shower tomorrow, for Samantha, a friend's daughter. I made a baby afghan for Sam when she, herself, was born, so I wanted to make something a little different. Since the father-to-be owns a car repair shop, I thought I'd try designing a set of toy cars.


I was aiming for a retro look. It took a while for me to get the shapes just right, and I don't know much about car styles, but I like the way they turned out.



The main yarn is a smooth DK weight, acrylic for easy washing. I first thought of buttons for the accents, but safety first for baby!

So, instead of buttons, I used a metallic yarn for the headlights and rear lights.

I hope the sweet baby girl enjoys playing with them as much as I enjoyed making them!
