Jeans and T shirt

OK she’s not naked anymore. I used scraps from some of my old clothes and made her some jeans and a T shirt. The pattern I used was a wardrobe pattern also from the dinky baby company sized for the 8″ dinky baby/kid.

Basic Shawl

Image

I couldn’t find a loom pattern for the type of shawl I wanted, so I’m just winging it. I’m making a basic rectangle shawl. I may or may not add pockets to it when I’m done. Not sure at this point. How I’m doing it is… I have my Martha Stewart loom set to large gauge (the pink pegs) 64 pegs. Using one strand of Bernat Soft Boucle Knitting flat. e-wrap cast on. purl one row. e-wrap stitch the next row. repeat those two rows until desired length. Warning! If you use this yarn, because of the way this yarn is made, you need to knit very loosely or your yarn WILL break.

Cheer Leader

I totally forgot to show you the cheer leader outfit I knitted! This pattern is from the fun to knit doll clothes book. Like most of the patterns in the book it was simple to make, but still very cute. 🙂

In the mood to sew

Felt like sewing lately. Like before it’s hand sewn, not machine. I really only like using my sewing machine for larger projects, like clothes for an adult or older child. Sometimes I’ll use it if I need to make several things and I’m in a time crunch. Other than that it’s hand sewing for me. Just something about it I find relaxing. One of the things I’ve sewn is a doll dress for my 14.5″ fisher price “little mommy sweet as me” doll. The dress is from a McCall’s sewing pattern. The pattern number is (M4338) and the dress is listed as (D). The other thing I made is another “dinky dinky” from dinkybaby.com I also knitted him a little bear to hold. That was a free knitting pattern I got from here. I used sock yarn and size 2 needles to make him. I also cut the numbers in the pattern in half to get him the size I needed him to be.

Robe

Robe and House shoes

 

Here is the latest thing I’ve made. This pattern is another one from the “Fun to knit doll clothes” book. It’s one of my favorite pattern books for sure. Lots of simple to make designs. Good for any skill level. I have no idea what kind of yarn that is that I used. It’s from a huge ball that my husband found on the clearance aisle at Walmart and got it for me. I do know it’s considered bulky weight.

What I forgot

Oh my goodness, I forgot to show you guys what I’ve done. Shame on me! 

First off I knit some clothes for my doll from the toys to knit book and I also knit my daughter a rabbit from the well dressed bunny pattern. Her’s looks quite a bit different from the one I made for my son. For her’s I made floppy ears, larger eyes, and the nose is satin stitch rather than the v shape.

Generic Toe-up Sock Pattern

I think I’m going to give this a try. I’ve never done socks toe up before.
