I guess this warrants a bit of a round up so here goes!
First up would be a new pair of training pants for Baby Boy. They're from the Tinkle Time Pocket Trainer pattern, although I did alter the pocket more to my liking. It's a pretty good pattern. This is my second time making it. I made a Pair back in the spring for LTM.
|Ready for potty training!|
Next up was a gift for a friend's little girl. I modified the Habitual Kimono Top so that it would be double layered and a Velcro close. The "baby legs" and hat are my own design and the little knit gnome from Plain and Joyful Living.
|For Baby Girl!|
Then I had another baby gift to make for another friend. Apparently I'm big into gnomes right now because I chose to make him a "Dangly Dell" from Little Oke Dolls. I also couldn't resist freezer paper stenciling a little onesie for him!
|Fun with freezer paper|
Moving along, a good friend of mine has been going through some trying times lately and I really wanted to send her something to let her know I was thinking of her and hopefully brighten her day. I chose to do my very favourite tea wallet pattern and a mug rug from Molly's Meanderings. I love this design and will make it again many times I'm sure!
|Tea makes everything better. Or at least not as bad.|
I also did a couple things for me!!! First would be a "too long on the needles" WIP. My lace weight clapotis. This thing did not want to be finished. I can't tell you how many times the stitches and bazillion stitch markers were accidentally (or not...) removed from the needles. Ugh. Anyways. I started this baby in December of 2009. So very glad to have it done!
Then I finished my summer dress. (a modified Simplicity 2180) Unfortunately after the warm weather had passed. It was a rather nippy +8C when this picture was taken.
|Maybe next summer this will get some wear...|
Oh! And I almost forgot! I used a tutorial to whip up a mei-tai carrier for a friend's little girl so she can wear her baby just like her mama. Baby Boy and LTM both want one for their dolls now too. LTM and "he's a big boy, not a baby, Mommy" doll were happy to pose for a quick pic. I think the boys will have slightly less floral carriers. I believe I have a monkey fat quarter perfect for Baby Boy and an awesome bug print for LTM! Just need some time...
|Happy boy wearing his doll!|
Speaking of time, it's high time I get back to house work. I have puppy treats to get made, supper to figure out and a disaster of a "no longer a teen/should be able to clean it themself but isn't here to do so" bedroom to straighten before our houseguest arrives tomorrow.
