My DAD and I made these for my bridal shower, WAAAAAY back in Sept. 2005.
We saw some on ebay, and the lady wanted a TON of money for them, so we made these for about...oh..hard to remember, but def. less than $10. There was a horse drawn carriage too, but I dont' seem to have gotten a picture of that... Oh and they're actually VERY sparkly in real life.
My aunt made me this for my baby shower (over a year ago..shh) But I think its the most amazing thing ever, and I love it soo much, I try to force my daughter to love it too, but she's somewhat less infatuated with it than I am....::Shrugs::
but I thought maybe you lovely and talented quilters might enjoy seeing it :-)
This is a Christening gown that my grandmother made for my sister 22 years ago, but my sis never got to wear it (weighing in at 10lbs 9 oz when she was born she was WAY too big for it by the time my parents had her christened!!) But here are the pics of it...it was too gorgeous not to share, though I didnt' crochet it myself (I can STILL only do straight lines!!)
Here is a hat I just finished for my daughter to match her new winter coat. :-) It looks a little lopsided, but its not while its on her head..that's called an action shot right? Well I don't have any of her wearing it, mostly because she yanks it off her head the second I put it on, of course who can blame her, I'm trying to make her wear a knitted winter hat in 90 degree heat!
