Super sweet!
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Doily Barbie Vest on: January 26, 2013 06:12:34 PM
I made this doily and my daughter wanted to play with it. She asked me to tie it on her barbie like a cape and it occurred to me that it would work perfect as a circle vest. I just used a piece of yarn to tie it, but I think it would look great with some pretty ribbon. Also, a lining would make it a pretty dress and you could even add sleeves and make it into a jacket.







The pattern for the doily I used I found here...

Those look great! I really like how you cut the material so that the two pillows look identical.

I started this blanket more than a year ago and I plan on using up all of my scraps finishing it. It is rather large  Grin. I wanted it to be big enough to be like a bedspread for a queen sized bed. So, in the picture, the part that is going up and down is really the width of it and the width in the picture is only how far up I have made it so far. (I always make things waaayyy too big. I should post a picture of my 18 yo son trying on a dress I tried to make for my 4yo, lol). Anyways, I layed it on a futon and I put my cat on it to show scale. This is a great project that I always return to when I need to take a break from whatever I am currently working on. It is just double crochets so I don't have to think, and can watch a movie while working on it.



Here is a picture of my scrap collection to use in the blanket. I have 4 Ikea containers full of balled up yarn at my disposal.

That's terrible! I'm glad to hear that things are looking good now though.

I am working on presents so I cannot work on squares til after Christmas.

Have fun travelling and Happy Holidays.  Smiley

I made 12 squares last night and they ended up being 2.75 inches. This would make the blanket 68.75" x 79.75". Kind of big, but I think it would fit nicely on a double size bed with a little hanging down the sides...I don't know. She is 10, so I want it to be bigger than in the picture in the link.

I did not tell her what I am making, but I wanted to find out what color I should make the background. I asked her what color she thought goes good with red, black and brown. She chose green, like x-mas. So I am making the background green.

Here is a progress pic.

Well, if you want to get it finished for Christmas, it'll only take.... about 45 squares a day between now and then!

If it wasn't for all the other presents I'm trying to make, I would probably try!  Cheesy

I just made it past one of my deadlines, helping my daughter make a project for school that was due today. So I am going to start working on squares tonight.

I would like to join. I want to make this blanket for my daughter's bithday in May. I wanted to make it for Christmas, but then I had a sane moment and realised how funny that was . Grin
