1  mini tshirt reconstruct in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by zona on: August 08, 2007 12:08:30 PM
I made this dress for my 4 yr old daughter from a xtra small womens tshirt on the sale rack at target. It only cost $3.99! She loves it because it has big sparkly flowers on it and it's soft like a tshirt.


..and the back. I had to put a little makeshift dart thing so it wouldn't gape.


I picked up a camo shirt at the Army/Navy supply store. That one will be the next dress.

2  Knitty's Lizard Ridge - finished! in Knitting: Completed Projects by zona on: August 08, 2007 10:28:09 AM
Finally finished! It only took me a few months of knitting on and off on it.


It's knit from Lions Brand Fishermans wool that i wound into little skeins and dyed individually in random earthy colors.


The yarn got alot softer after they dying and blocking processes. The thing weighs a ton though!


It was a housewarming gift for my mom who just had a new house built and it looks great in her new living room. Plus she absolutly loves it!
This is it (unblocked obviously)before i did the edge and wove in all the ends.


I really enjoyed this project and am already thinking of making one for my own.

5  apple dress for my pumpkin in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by zona on: April 17, 2007 11:10:00 AM
I got a new sewing machine recently so i intend on making lots of summer play dresses for my little one. She loves to pick out her own fabric at the fabric store and this was one of her picks.

The elastic casing around the neck and sleeves make this dress perfect for the little 4 year old that prefers to get herself dressed. I see many more versions of this pattern in our future since it only took my about 2 hours from uncut fabric to dress.

6  Seed Stitch Cap + link to free pattern in Knitting: Completed Projects by zona on: March 14, 2007 01:19:00 PM
Hi there,
I finished this pattern a while ago and after knitting several versions of this hat i've decided to make the pattern available on my blog for free Smiley



This version is knit from my own hand spun yarn but it works up great in various yarns.

Enjoy!
