Drive-by post, and a thank you for the honorable MoM mention!
Name: Bear hood
My kids Christmas presents from their Great-Aunt and Uncle were the yarn for me to make them a hood and blanket (she knows I like to knit, so it's sort of a present for me too). This is the Burton Bear cowl, which I think someone else makes on here too! I knit her the size 12-18 months so it'd be more close-fitting since it's quite cold where we live, and we just got through a blizzard. It fits the prompt because the yarn is 50% wool, making it extra soft and warm. It's also fuzzy (albeit not white!).
Challenge: Bertie Bott's BANANA
Name: Cheery top and bloomers
My daughter has also been in a dress-loving phase lately, but I wanted to make her bloomers to go under them because she's still pretty rough-and-tumble! This vintage pattern (from the late 60's early 70's) also came with a really cute reversible swing top, which looks pretty dress-like. I sewed it up over a few hours the night before last. She liked it, although as a fickle toddler she wouldn't be it on again yet!
Challenge: Headmistress FEBRUARY
Name: Ooh-la-la! Des fruits!
I've had this pinned for AGES, and this was a perfect opportunity to try it out (especially since I found a stack of prepared canvases from the art store stored away!). I followed the tutorial pretty carefully, but didn't do a crackle finish, wrote the names out in marker instead of using scrapbook paper, and invented my own "orange" as well. I'm pretty happy with them, but they're not mounted yet because we'll likely be moving shortly and I don't want to just take them down again right away! EDIT: I forgot the link to the tutorial! http://craftsbyamanda.com/2010/10/french-fruit-wall-art.html
