Granny Square Cotton Dress

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015

I just finished and gifted this cute 12 month sized dress for a co-worker’s adorable little girl. It is the first time that I have ever incorporated fabric with a crochet or knitting project. I did all of the sewing by hand, because I don’t have a sewing machine, but it was a small project and so it was very manageable.

It was another easy project! I asked for a measurement of her chest circumference and made the appropriate amount of granny squares to fit. The fabric was sold bundled as a remnant, and came in a 15×18″ size. I gathered the 15″ side to fit the granny square circumference, and sewed them together. Then simply hemmed the dress to 16″ from the shoulder. Added two buttons on each shoulder that are closed with using loops that were part of the last crochet round.
So cute! I have started making another one using a different fabric.

New Projects

Monday, March 3rd, 2014

Wow, has it been that long?! I guess it has! I have been slacking off on crocheting and knitting, but didn’t know it had been this long! Well, I only have one project to show, but a lot of wonderful life memories to cherish since my last post.

This is a crocheted Giraffe that a co-worker requested for her new grandbaby. She chose the colors that matched the baby’s nursery. I changed the striping pattern from the original pattern to get more of the green to show. This pattern was super easy; a beginner can handle this project with ease. It is 17 inches tall, including the horns. If you stuff the legs and arms as you go, it is so much easier. I love this littly guy!

….another coffee mug cover

Saturday, May 18th, 2013

My girlfriend saw the purple coffee mug cover that I made a while back and asked me for a red one. These are so quick and easy to knit up and make great gifts! Again, instead of a traditional ‘tea bag’ I added ‘mas cafe’ for my Spanish speaking amiga.

Mug Cover

My friend, Sylvia, asked me to make her a coffee mug cover. She sent me a photo of a knitted one with an embroidered tea bag tag that read. “Chai tea.” Since she is a coffee drinker and ‘una Latina’, I decided to embroider “more coffee’ in Spanish. I love it!

Snug Baby Sweater, Beanie & Gansey Booties

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

I just finished this cute sweater and bootie set for a co-worker who is expecting a littly boy in 2 weeks. This is the first time I’ve ever used this yarn, and it is so soft and chunky! I love the way this sweater feels. I made the 6 month size and changed the pattern stitching along the two fronts that extend into the hood. The pattern stitch is #209 from “Vogue Knitting’s Stitchionary 1” book. I gave her the set today at work and she loved it!

Thank you, Nik, for finding this free pattern by Annie Modesitt! I love it, and will put it on my project list for the Summer. I love the dropped shoulders and the sleeves. Beautiful!

Making Progress….

Sunday, October 24th, 2010

Cool! I’m making progress on the Haruha Scarf! It’s about 30″ long. I think I’m going to make it between 55-60″ in length. The chart is REALLY easy to follow now that I’m familiar with it…..piece of cake!
