New niece & new ID bracelets

On the week-end I finally met my new little niece Isla and she is gorgeous.
I'm not new to being an Aunty but until now I had 3 nephews, so snuggling a little girl was a bit different.
All I could think of was all the Barbie's I'll buy her and all the chats about make-up and boys that we'll have!

Anyway, we wanted to give Isla a gift from the entire family as a 'welcome to the family' gift and my sister-in-law suggested an ID bracelet, so I suggested that I make it.

It came out so perfect, I am so happy with it.
When I first put it all together my thought was 'that wouldn't even fit a doll' so I added some more links to make it a bit longer.
I think it will now fit her until she's at least 12!
Why am I so surprised that babies have such tiny wrists? It's times like these you can tell I don't have children.

I'm off to finish up another gift, this one's for my God-daughter who turns sweet 16 on Saturday.
