Some Knitting

I've recently gotten into knitting as well! This is my first "real" knitting project that Danica can actually wear. I hand dyed the yarn myself and just love how it knitted up. The kids and I also dyed some yarn together the other day, will have to make another post about that! :)

All in all, I think it turned out, but it is a bit shorter than I had planned on it being, I didn't want to run out of yarn for the hat, and I almost did! But, with a pair of jeans for the fall, this will be an awesome top!

Imke Hoodie and Dortje Pants

Made a hoodie and pants for my little girl today! The pattern is from the Sewing Clothes Kids Love book. I still have yet to make that Felix Dress. Anyways, the shirt is adorable on her, and she LOVES the pants. She was so happy to find that she had pockets in her pants. :) The material for the fabric is from that polyester fabric I received awhile back. They actually make great pants! I am going to make her some more of these pants, especially for daycare, as all she is going to do is run around in them and get them dirty anyways!

Sewing Machine Broke...

So, yeah, after I sewed those three dresses for the neighbor, I started to make some hoodies for my own daughter, and my machine broke. :( I was so devastated!!!! So, I had to take it in to get fixed, or, if it's too much money, then I will get a new one. It might be nice to get a new machine. Mine was $70 when bought, and was a great new machine for a beginner like me. That was three year ago, and I have DEFINITELY grown as a seamstress!!!

If I get a new one, I will show pictures of it. I was shopping around a bit today to see what there was available. We'll have to just wait and see. :)
