A Bit of What I am Working On

April 26, 2006 at 6:25 am (Children's Wearables, Misc)

Here are some pics of things I am working on at the moment. I had mentioned before that I was in the middle of crocheting tops for my GRAND nieces. I have completely finished two – with the exception of the embellishments and here they are (I have a pretty large stuffed pig I am using as a “model”).

This is the one for the 8 year old – I am planning on putting some ribbon and such to make it look a little more “girlie”. I actually designed this pattern myself. I have learned already that there are certain ways to make the bodice and then the bottom part and how to attach the straps – I used a stitch called the “Arch” from a book from Leisure Arts called 63 Easy to Crochet Pattern Stitches to make an Heirloom Afghan:

  

This is the one for the 3 year old. Cute little halter dress – you see the front of it as well as the back. Again, I am planning on putting some ribbon around it! The picture I took looks a little lopsided, but I assure you it is symetrical! This pattern I got from the Luv2Crochet website. It is the Pink Daisies Halter Top Pattern.

  

I am also working on a bolero for the 13 year old. I have a pattern for the 7 year old, just haven’t started it as of yet.

One other thing I am working on (I am addicted I know!) is a baby set for a friend that just had a little boy. I am making a sweater, hat and booties. I am on the sweater. This is the first baby boy thing I have made. I will post pics later.
