WIP Wednesday & Rainbow Wednesday, too!

One quick rainbow week addition (only one because I have an excessive amount of WIP pics!)

Push toy

For WIP Wednesday

Still knitting K's birthday sweater on and off. I started sewing her 'Night night baby' the other night. This is a doll she has had and loved for a long time and I ruined it a few months back. I soaked it in water and it was stuffed with millet... Do I need to say more? I am now finally getting around to making her a new one. She doesn't know what happened to her old one. I am hoping to pull it off as a 'look what I found while packing' surprise.
I made 2 more ornaments out of the leftover yarn I dyed for C baby's sleepy sack.

A little love ornament. This one is a surprise ;)

I made up this mini hat pattern and posted it on ravelry. I think next time I will make the edge ribbed with k2, p2 though.

Mini hat ornament to match mini mittens

Both of our Oregon trail bonnets are done!

The ribbon for C's bonnet arrived in the mail over the weekend. I love them both. The pattern had 3 sizes - baby, child and adult. I was afraid the baby size would be too small for C and I think it's always better to have things to grow in to so I made both C's and K's in the child size. Since the toadstool fabric was one direction I had to cut the pattern in half and make it in 2 parts. I only wish that I had made the toadstools face the other way on the brim. Oh well. It's still cute!
I have to thank Grace for posting this bonnet pattern and her sweet baby wearing the one she made. I had wanted a bonnet pattern for our trip but couldn't find one. Thank you Grace!!

These pics are from when the girls just woke up and still in their pjs, so forgive the sleepy eyes.

My poor baby got attacked by mosquitoes in her sleep. This bonnet is so cute on her though!

Side view to see the cute toadstools.

K wanted her bonnet in the cherry fabric we used for her Summer tablecloth, which worked out perfect because I had just enough of it left. She requested pale blue for the inside and trim. I love her color combination. It looks very sweet on her.

I hope everyone is enjoying rainbow week! Happy creating!

Such cute sun bonnets! I have always loved "Sun Bonnet Sue" you find on quilts and vintage fabric. K's pic reminded me of that :)
