Red Stars Float Dress with white collar

Variation of Ginger Snaps Designs Float Dress. Polka dots on dress are actually little stars so this is a cute patriotic dress for my youngest. Won't she be cute?!!?

Floral Dress with stripe ruffle

Dress pattern : Simplicity 4658, Size 8 fits like a size 10!

I'm not totally happy with this one. It doesn't excite me at all...but my kiddo loves it. I think it needs a belt...maybe hot pink grosgrain ribbon?

Update: ok, I added a belt and cinched it in with buttons in the back instead of the zipper and I'm happy with it now.

Black & White dress

Using pattern: Simplicity 3749

Size 8, View A, This is for my daughter. Recycled white fabric that Mom will probably recognize. The neat thing on this one is the little black line around the bottom. I didn't have any black ribbon for that accent so I tried something new. I zig zagged around a piece of worsted weight black yarn and I LOVE the result. I may never do ribbon like that again. It was easy, forgiving, and has a nice fuzzy look to the accent. I was trying to make a more "grown up" looking dress. I think she may wear this with tights to school...it's too cute to save for Sundays only!

Pretty Crochet Hat in White

I liked this head hugging pattern. It is mostly double crochet so it finishes quick. I didn't do as many rows as the pattern calls for because the pattern's for a grown-up and this one is for a kid. I also crocheted with two strings for the last row of single crochet by adding some eyelash to make it nice for my "Fancy" girl!

Tissue Covers

I'm making pocket pack tissue holders for everybody! Here's the pattern I used. I guess I'll send a dollar for using it! (Meant to get this done a month ago!) -- aren't they cute?

Baby Avery's hat

My cousin had a preemie several months ago and she's finally home from the hospital! I made this little crochet cap for her this Christmas...so cute! It's in pure white, but I had to turn off the flash to see the stitches. Here's the pattern. To make this pattern a baby hat, I used a hook 3 sizes smaller and sport weight yarn. Took about 90 minutes to whip it up! After adding a little eyelash yarn to the last row -- viola!

Martha Stewart Hat Ideas

Wish I had seen all these cute ideas before I ran out of fleece!

Last Two Fleece Hats

I ran out of fleece so these are the last two...All the family kids will be stylin!

Two More Fleece Hats

I can't believe how easy and comfortable these things are!

Yellow Fleece Hats


About 30 minutes to make both...will probably take less now that I've done it before.

Adult Bib/Apron made with a hand towel

My Aunt requested this bib/Apron made from fabric and a hand towel. The top of the "bib" has two different fabrics so it is reversable for two different looks. The bottom is a hand towel so it is more absorbant that my earlier version I made a while ago. I just cut off the bottom of the old pattern and added the towel - I see I didn't put the velcro on yet...there's more to do!

Crochet Booties

I hadn't made these in a while, but we have a new baby at work so this is for the shower next week. Too cute -- they are an adaptation of this pattern -- I didn't do a cuff, I added a fancy trim with single crochet instead. I love making these...quick and easy!
