Back to the Web

Phew! It’s been a few weeks. I caught a horrible flu, and then ofcourse passed it on to my lovely daughter. Then she had a nasty rash which turned out to be severe eczema. So we are now over the sickness and her eczema breakouts are being controlled finally 🙂

I made these two projects for my daughter. The dress was made from this pattern called Angel Wings Pinafore. This is the second dress I made from this pattern the first I made will be donated as part of the Precious Awakening Craftster Unswap. This one I made for my daughter but she is too big for it now. It’s totally cute though, I am going to save it for maybe a future baby. I used Caron Simply Soft (7 oz. Skein). Semi-finished project below. I haven’t sewed the buttons on yet. I added a little felt heart stitched on with some DMC floss the safety pin is for decoration. It did however hold the heart in place while I sewed it on. I would have LOVED for her to fit into this but I guess I would have to adjust the pattern to make it fit.

I finished this next project on Sunday. They are my very first pair of knitted booties. My husband calls these “Streakers”, I thought that was a really cute name for them. This is a free Lion brand pattern, the Oh Natural Booties. Instead of using Nature’s Choice yarn I decided to use Wool-ease. They looked really great after I was done, but my daughter wore them one time and they had already fuzzed and lightly pilled up 😦 Now I know for next time. I stitched lightening bolts on the sides. They kinda remind me of Puma sneakers.
