21  Linen and Liberty baby outfit in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by frogginette on: November 25, 2008 12:51:02 PM
I just made this little ensemble from a never-worn 100% linen shirt and some Liberty scraps. The size is about 3 months.  I improvised the pattern, using the shirt sleeves to make the pant legs, and re-using part of the buttoning band.

22  Budding Bootie Collection (my own design!) in Knitting: Completed Projects by frogginette on: October 11, 2008 03:39:36 AM
I've been cranking out bootie after bootie in the past few days, and this is the result of phase 1: The Great Garter Stitch Obsession. I'm very happy with these, I think they are quite cute, and turned out exactly how I envisioned them!




Here are a few detail views:


Bayswater Knee-High:






Liberty Lace-Ups:





Gavroche Kicks:






Cloud Walkers:




What do you think??

23  Classic Baby Coat in Knitting: Completed Projects by frogginette on: September 06, 2008 02:52:57 AM
I just made this as a present for my cousin's baby to come.
I got inspired by a vintage pattern for a baby coat and decided to line it with Liberty fabric for added comfy-ness. I also added some matching Liberty-covered buttons.

24  Funky green skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by frogginette on: June 18, 2008 10:20:18 PM




I just improvised this skirt from some fabric I got at a thrift store, pretty simple A-line, with some color bias detailing... I probably could have done a better job with the zipper, but i really love it and it's so comfy! What do you think?

25  Elijah elephant in Knitting: Completed Projects by frogginette on: May 21, 2008 10:48:01 AM


Here's my version of the famous Elijah by Ysolda Teague (pattern can be purchased here: http://ysolda.com/store/toys/elijah/

This pattern was so much fun, I couldn't get enough, so I freestyled a little jacket too!



Made the feet and hands pink... Just because.



And here he is in all his naked glory!

More pics and details on my blog for those interested

26  His and Hers hats (with links to free patterns) in Knitting: Completed Projects by frogginette on: May 06, 2008 12:00:04 PM

HERS:
This is the Banana Republic Hat Knockoff - the pattern is available on Crafster here:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=197572.0
I made mine using leftover Wool-Ease Thick & Quick yarn and 2 shell buttons from Joann's.


HIS:
This hat is a slightly modified version of "Jake's Cable Beanie" which is available here:
http://earthlyfae.blogspot.com/2008/01/jakes-cable-beanie.html
I used Blue Sky Alpacas dyed cotton, holding 2 strands together.
I like to call my version the Don't Call Me Santa Hat.

27  Hobbit Slippers in Knitting: Completed Projects by frogginette on: April 25, 2008 07:19:44 PM



Modeled by my hairy-legged boyfriend...
I added some ribbons because these slippers are meant for the girl-hobbit in this house (me)

This is a free pattern called Side Cable Slippers and you can find it on freepatterns.com - you have to register to the website to access the pattern though.

I made these so quickly (about 1h30) using roughly one ball of Wool-Ease Thick and Quick yarn, and they are really comfy!

28  Nob Hill shrug (Knitty) in Knitting: Completed Projects by frogginette on: April 16, 2008 04:25:21 PM


This is from the Spring 2008 issue of Knitty, it's a very quick, pretty easy knit. I'm ok with the result, though I might replace the button for one with a bit more pizazz.

29  Crossed-straps summer top in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by frogginette on: March 27, 2008 10:28:58 PM



An easy top for the summer! I just took in the side seams a bit for a more fitted look, but nothing beyond that. The main idea was to have removable straps so that you can attach different top configurations (halter strap etc...)



The straps actually are attached to the bodice on the inside, with small buttons sewn onto the other side of the mother-of-pearl buttons...

I'm now thinking it would be easy to attach a skirt to this, and have a pretty summer dress, too? Comments and suggestions are welcome!

30  Cute toddler sweater in Knitting: Completed Projects by frogginette on: March 18, 2008 07:57:20 PM


This is a cute little sweater, very comfy and easy to make, perfect for active little boys (or girls!). This is a size 2-3 years. It's based on a French pattern (Bergere de France "Mister Escargot" is the name), but I made a few modifications.

Here he is... Mr. Escargot!:
