Awesome! Everything looks great - but the hair is spot-on.

Thanks, everyone!

Adorable! I'd never seen this pattern before. Definitely going to try it out! Thank you!

Thanks, everyone!

This is so cute! I bet all the ends were madness.

I think it took me just as long to weave in all the ends as it did to do the crochet!

She is so cute! Her hair is beautiful and I love her little headband ears and yellow shoes!

Thanks, everyone!

Oh man, I wish I had some fabric like this. That special horsie would make a very special unicorn. Very cool idea. Smiley

I almost did a little horn! But it ended up that my thread was a little too thick. Alas, we can still dream!

This is so sweet! I love the vintage styling and the fabrics used.

This has been on my "to-sew" list for awhile. Your's looks wonderful! Great fabric, and it is very flattering on you.
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / cutie patootie's booties on: June 10, 2010 02:29:44 PM
It's been awhile since I've posted in the knitting gallery!



I whipped these up two weeks ago for my sister in law who is nearing her due date. My niece has nicknamed her soon-to-be new sister "cutie patootie," so these are Cutie Patootie's booties!

The pattern is Saartje's Booties, which I absolutely love. It's been awhile since this pattern was popular, but I think it is so unique and pretty. The yarn is some stash yarn I inherited. I think they turned out very sweetly - hope you agree!
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / flower tote - a year in the making on: June 10, 2010 02:10:28 PM
This weekend I was able to get a huge pile of projects done, including this:



I started this bag last summer. The pattern is from my favorite Japenese crochet book, "Crochet Motif Item." I'm sure you are thinking - why would you ever crochet this?! Look at all those ends to weave in!



And I will admit, the finishing of the crochet took a really long time. But that is not why this project languished on my sewing table - unfinished - for so long.

I could not figure out what to do for handles. Until a few weeks ago when I read a post over at the Purl Bee blog and I knew I had my solution - Use webbing for the handles! I picked some up at JoAnn's that matched the center color of the flower, and I was in business.

Check out this lining:



And a closeup of crochet-y goodness:



I could not be happier with the bag - and the fact that it is finally done!
