Project Updates!

The fingerless gloves/mittens are completed and my grandmother loves them! Yay!!

And one set of Christmas outfits done

I just received these super cute buttons today from TessaAnn on Etsy and will be adding them soon as embellishments on the shirts! Don't they look delicious?!

One of my favorite fabrics and a great Buy!

I finally finished this dress, I tried out several and even bought 2 different chicken wire fabrics until I found the right one - chicken wire fabric, who knew?!

And look what I found at Marshall's! ($15!!). A mini (toddler-size-5) dress form - yes, it is "developed," but I just turned it around and it makes the perfect model when the little one doesn't want to "try it on just one more time!"
And it will look super-cute in the powder room when not performing modeling duty.

My Attempt at Fingerless Gloves or Mittens

So, I bought this super cute (and easy to understand) pattern on Etsy from WhileTheyPlay, to make some gloves for my grandmother. The design is beautiful and it's so fun to knit with all of those little double-pointed needles! It just takes me a while because unlike my grandmother I do not have petite hands. I used a somewhat fuzzy bamboo yarn which looks fabulous, but the stitches are tiny, so I had a hard time picking them out when I made a mistake.

One down and one to go!
And I'm getting faster!
It looks like the small is a perfect fit for a pre-teen, too!

Christmas Outfits!

Now that my little one is in Kinder and we have a cousin who "needs" matching outfits, I love making outfits for whatever holiday we are going to celebrate! There is so much cute Christmas fabric out there - so we are designing two!

These are the fabrics and some of the work in progress.

My cousin wants fluffy cuffs on the top that will match the santa leopard, so I will also be breaking out the knitting needles!

I searched all over for my fabrics, but here are links to some of the fabric on
