This is my first halloween with a wee one and I changed my mind about a thousand times before i made her a costume. And after finishing the first costume (a peacock that looked sweeeeet!) I changed my mind again because she would've been reaaaaally hard to carry. So the night before halloween at 8pm I decided to make a new costume, she was a ranger's apprentice (from the Ranger's Apprentice series by John Flanagan). I hand stitched the cape, tunic, and leggings. The cape really does have an awesome hood on it but she's a super squirmy little one and she was determined to not let me get a good picture of her with the hood up.
I think this is the right place for this... I have a friendy who owns a laundry mat and she asked me if I could make her some aprons to wear to work. The picture kind of sucks, but it's a black fabric with white polka dots, the flowers are red/black/white.
I was in the middle of making a dress for the munchkin today when I opened my knitting book and found a pattern for these shoes. Naturally I only felt the need to make one. It's the first shoe I've ever made, and will soon be making it a mate
My friend's daughter just turned 1 so i made her a dress, it's the second dress I've ever made and since I have no sewing machine I sewed it by hand with no pattern. I'm a wee bit proud of myself for that ...anywho, I'm still new to the sewing thing so any tips would be appreciated!
