Rag Rug, Love it!

Here is a picture of my frenchie on my rag rug! Easy to clean, I just shake, wash and dry. A great way to use old sheets or teach a child to crochet. You could make also make placemats.
tutorial here
I did take a stitch in the fringe, it randomly  comes off in the wash or dry. I just used machine sewing thread, takes a little time but well worth it.

This yarn is so pretty, however it just doesn't show in the picture as well.

Knit Pink Baby Dress

 I have been learning to knit in the round, and their has been a lot of little things to learn. I have unpicked a few times. This pink dress was originally a blessing dress pattern. I used red heart baby love yarn in pink and green and the lavender or purple is
Bernat baby coordinates. I am still thinking about doing the bottom rib over. I might just unpick and do it right, I just purled. I should have knit one row and purled the next, then it would have not rolled. I hope you like this, I am very please how it turned out. I used the pattern from the
Precious Heirloom 
and I just knit instead of the pattern and then an inch and a half before the bottom of the dress and sleeve I knit 4 yo knit 2 together all the way around for three rows. the middle row I shifted 2 stitches. Using the bigger yarn made it more for a 3-6 month old.

frilly crocheted dress

This is a little dress I crocheted for my daughter 17 years ago, just found the picture and thought I would share. Hope you enjoy, it was really fun to make and worked up pretty fast. I made a ruffled tricot slip in white to go under it. The pattern is from a book called Baby's Heirloom Wardrobe, by Beverly Study

KID'S GRANNY HAT (C) Pink


This is the link to the pattern, it is free on her site. Enjoy!
hat pattern here:

Sabrina is now so stylish! This is a fun little hat to make, and it turns out so pretty!
The original pattern has other colors added in, but I wanted to make her a pink hat. I just made up a flower and then sewed it on with 3 Bullion stitchs this is link for the stitch. bullion stitch
  I like the way the granny stitches make it look a little lacy, It is very easy to understand the pattern.

Green/Pink chevron afghan

 I am making lots of progress on my afghan! I am so pleased with the look of it. I put the link in for the pattern. I hope you enjoy making this as much as I have. We bought a couch set off craigslist and I didn't have an afghan to match and this will look great! Just a few more rows and I'll be done. This is one of those patterns, after you get going it just gets in your head and no more looking at the pattern! I wish I would have done 4 rows of the dark green but I think it will look good this way. Happy crocheting!

Ripple pattern here:
It's free and goes rather quickly
