Even MOAR dragonses!

25 Feb

I’m not obsessed yet.  I’m not obsessed yet.  I’m not obsessed yet…

 

It occurs to me that once the baby gets here Husband’s coffee intake is going to increase exponentially. Moar coffee = Moar of those little cardboard coffee cozy things that are always falling off (and that I *hate*).  Solution?  MOAR DRAGONS!!!

 

This little guy is made of washable, unbleached cotton (of course), and ended up with just the right amount of stretch.  Groovy.

I wish I had a fancier travel mug model...

What if it’s rainy AND cold?

Why, then, Baby Boy will have to wear this sweater now, won’t he?

I think I might be growing a Hobbit baby...

 

This was my first attempt at making an actual piece of clothing rather than an accessory, and I was surprised at how easy it was!  The most difficult part was lining up the button holes (and that’s not rocket science, friends).

I’m *trying* not to be stressed about the sizing; I made the biggest size the pattern included, so hopefully by the time the weather turns it will fit my little hobbity son (who is currently practicing his roundhouse kicks on my bladder. Neat).  If it doesn’t fit, well, no worries – It only took me about a day and a half to work up, so I’ll just make another one!

I can't make a sweater without a tiny dragon on it, now can I?

 

So… I’m now off to create more dragony things for the boy (with my feet up and a big glass of water next to me, of course).  Hooray!

Chainy Hat Has Chains.

26 Sep

A friend of mine saw a version of this hat for sale at Gymboree and, because she is awesome, knew instantly that it had probably been crocheted by a machine (or worse, in a sweatshop), and instead of buying it, commissioned me to make one for her sweet little girl:

It’s really super cute – I LOVE how it turned out, and *hopefully* my friend will send me a picture of her little Bit-Bit wearing it!

 

I didn’t put it up on my Etsy shop because we’re actually working in trade – Miss Michelle actually has her *own* hand crafted business, Bit-Bit’s Hair Bows, and is going to whip up some awesomely adorable hair bows for me to give my nieces (yay!).  You can check out Miss Michelle’s Facebook page here: Bit Bit’s Hair Bows.  She *promises* she’s going to get an Etsy shop up and running in the future — I’ll keep you posted (and of course I’ll post pics of the bows when I get them)!
