This is mostly finished projects but I wanted to share a bit more about the presents I made for C this year.
I did manage to finally knit up a pair of slippers to fit little miss C. She noticed the hedgehogs first thing and put them on right away so I guess they were a hit.
C is really enjoying her baby's matching dress and sweater. I ended up with just enough yarn left over to finish C baby's matching sweater. There isn't a scrap left, I used up every last bit. Her sleeves are a bit short but I think we can live with it. I still can't believe the pattern came out just in time!
Then of course there is C's birthday dress and sweater. The dress pattern is Butterick, but as you can see by looking at the actual pattern I added a lot of length to it. I apologize in advance for the amount of pictures of the set. It's the first time I have sewn clothing since college so I am happy it came out at all, plus adding a knitted sweater to it is just icing on the cake for me.
I have to point out that it was a beautiful day outside but instead of the bonnet she chose to wear a thick wool hat. My silly one!
Now for an actual work in progress...
Thanks to Angela for telling me about this pattern. It was discontinued but I found it on E-Bay (Yipee!) and would you believe it arrived on Monday, the day after C's birthday? So I didn't get her bloomers done in time for her birthday but I am finishing them up now. I love every pattern in this set. I can tell already I will be using them all quite often! I can't wait to try some more of the great patterns all of you suggested. Must make more time to sew!!
I hope you are all having a wonderful week!
