Mom's Dress

We saw this dress in a store..on sale for $65ish...and I said...I could just make something like that for you!
We went to Haberman's...found some wearable muslin fabric..made a first version:

And then the real version:

And then...the real version! I'm super happy with how it turned out and Mom is, too. :)

Oooh la la skirt!

Just finished this super cute skirt! The bottom ruffle took forever, though. It ended up with 1305 stitches on the needles!!

Matt's Lunch Bag!

I made this lunch bag for Matt since he has no fridge or microwave at work. He wanted it to say Jeep on it, seeing that he work at Chrysler and all....

The pattern is from a Blog here.

My only complaint is that it's a little bit small for an adult lunchbag. Other than that, it's awesome!

I finished my Olympic project!!!!

And it's GORGEOUS! And I love it! HEHE

Pattern: Botanica Medallion Cardigan on the cover of Vogue Knitting Spring/Summer 2009
Needles: US 4 & US 5
Yarn: Viking of Norway Milk & Honey, 5 skeins
Notes: LOVE this!!!!! This yarn feels magnifiscent to wear. When I sewed the armholes, I sewed them slightly higher than the halfway point..I think it fit a little better that way. :)
