Vintage patterns always have such a great fit! This one has an odd belt thing in the back, but I may modify or omit it next time. Or, maybe I'll just stick with onesies- he wasn't so interested in wearing it at first. Sewing with the Dream Team today- serger and sewing machine set up side by side! Thank you Dana, for the fun fabric!
Oh, how I love knitting socks! These are slightly large for me which will work out great for a dear friend. It felt so good to be making socks again after a long hiatus.

Some more elephant flannel, but different print. Another baby gift. I love how snuggly these are!

A handful of washcloths made from some fun scraps. Don't be surprised if you are on my Christmas list and end up with some of these.
Fun, bright colors! This one is to donate, but she's happy to model.

"Saturday Morning" dress pattern. Just out of the shower try-on.

A knitted, felted before and after. The thing started large enough to fit half of me in it. Now it easily holds one knitting project and a water bottle.

If I were a better photographer, you would see how great and fuzzy these are. The back is super soft flannel- the same that the elephants are made of. I love how these turned out. The applique was easier than I thought. They are for a baby shower gift- done way ahead of time! I may start on Christmas gifts soon with this kind of motivation.

A whole lot of knitting. This thing is huge, I can fit it on my head and pull it to my thighs. The I-cord is taller than me! Poems wool, very beautiful! Thank you Lisa!

Super wide purple rick rack along the bottom 2" above the hem. It took a long time to sew it on, but I love the look! She also loves it! (which is rare)

Something a little different with the pleats. This was SO much faster than the hundred hand pleats I'm used to doing.
