Pocketbook Slippers

Up until about a week ago, I thought pocketbook slippers were so named because they could be easily tucked into a pocketbook. When I finally seen them in their flattened state I realized maybe they were so named because they look like mini pocketbooks. Regardless of how they got their name, they are incredibly easy to make and will make an ideal donation project for the homeless shelters and rest homes.
Although these don’t have them yet, I think I will add the puffy paint dots to the bottoms of these as I’d done with my sister’s slippers. My sister loved her’s by the way.
The pattern for the slippers and the pattern for the daisies came from . and

8 lbs of Yellow Cotton Yarn

Jiminy Crickets! What was I thinking?
Okay. I was thinking it looked light enough that I could alter items made with it with dyes and probably can just it won’t be as true a color had it been white.
It’s a LOT of yarn and it was an awesome deal on it and I wanted to make some more things from cotton and and and and
One headband is crocheted (pattern by Tina Rodriguez) the other knitted (pattern by Teresa Harmon). They and many others can be found on Ravelry Dot Com

Onto the next yellow item!

Ooooo, I like!

     Just a short bit ago, I worked on numerous knit and crochet items in red.  While making the sweater, Baby Sophisticate by Linden Down, I thought it’d be adorable in pink with a black fuzzy/furry collar and trim (my first thought was that long eyelash, wispy type yarn but considering the age of the wearer, I opted for the shorter eyelash chenille.  The youtube video for pockets was very beneficial when it came to adding them to this sweater. The buttons were made to match using polymer clay.

So, There Was This Dress, see…

…and I just couldn’t not make it. Matter of fact, I lost sight of what I was actually supposed to be doing in order to complete it.

It wound up being a faster project than I expected. Yaaaaay!

Sandrine Bianco’s Summer Dress Pattern Direct link to the pdf of the English version of the pattern Please be aware although the pattern isn’t at all difficult it may prompt a bit of head scratchin’ and HUH? Do a WHAAAAAAT? and maybe even unraveling a time or two ’cause you wound up with 8 short at the end of the dividing row, it’ll click eventually.

Other Sweets (the inedible kind)

After seeing this beautiful yoke pattern, I decided to give it a try.  I had to do a bit of adjusting of the pattern because I was wanting it to fit a 15 month old little girl.  For the most part, the part that counts, the stitch pattern, it is the same….just not as big.  It wound up being incredibly easy to follow and an insanely fast project…the crocheted yoke, that is.  After finishing the yoke, I searched for more yoke patterns and came upon Regina Gees blogspot.  She’d successfully, and quite beautifully combined a completed yoke, from the above pattern, to fabric for the perfect Summer dress.

I wound up making a second one.  I was so excited about the pattern that I made the first one before getting my grand daughter’s measurements.  The first was about 3″ shy of her chest width.  I couldnt’ bring myself to unravel it.  I think I’ll add something to each end to extend it.

The yoke that is laying on top of the pink fabric is the first one.  I took a shot of it so you can see it opened.  I wanted it to meet in the middle of the back and attach buttons so it would be easier to get on and off.  I think I’ll make a few more in other colors.

 

Here are my renditions of the yoke and the dress (and a little purse, to hold important stuff, to match):
