11  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Pants into Quilt on: July 27, 2005 08:53:48 PM
My absolutely favorite pair of pants were pink Gap Karate pants I got for my birthday right before I started college.  When they ripped a week after I graduated last December, I was rather sad.  So, I started with some green fabric trying to make something rather hip etc.  But, my desire to add some blue has changed it into a baby blanket, that's all I can see when I look at it.

So, off to a friend who is most likely the first person I know to obtain a small human soon.


The color isn't actually so yucky.  The green is much brighter and yellowy.

Thanks for looking!
12  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / simple baby boy blanket on: July 27, 2005 08:44:34 PM
I made this last fall, but it never got to its intended.  So, of course, it lives in the craft room where little kittens can sleep on it and feel cozy.  I made it with Homespun Baby that was given to me when I first was learning about knitting.


13  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My first sweater (baby size) on: July 24, 2005 04:51:01 PM

I just knitted this in squares, then seamed it up.  I'm not sure on the yarn.  The top was something cheap and soft from Micheals, the other was a speciality yarn from the LYS that I got for my birthday.   This was also my first attempt at making button holes, and I was quite happy with the way they turned out.

Here it is modeled on the closest thing to a baby in my apartment.

This was my practice doing a satin stitch.  I got the pattern from a Dover Thrift Book of Transfer Patterns I found at Hastings.

Thanks for looking!

First bit of embroidery I've ever done.  First in a series of course; I think she is rather cute, almost like she is chewing on her hair, or starting to eat her hat.

The pattern comes from the dollar patterns from Hobby Lobby.

16  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Too darn hot... on: July 22, 2005 10:24:52 PM
So I had to make a tiny snow quilt.  It helps keep the mind off the high 90s.

Enjoy the wonkiness of my tiny quilting (it is about 6 inches long)!
