Weekend Projects

This weekends projects:
Finished 1/2 of a custom.
cleaned out high boy dresser!

Knit this little top - isn't it sweet! Saw the pattern in a LYS last week. I really tweaked this to where I can't say I followed the pattern at all but I certainly enjoyed this knit and it produced such a cute little top! It is made to be a dress and much fuller than I created.

I literally barely eeked this little top out of leftover yarn from the pixie dust longies that I knit. I had to dig out approx a 24 inch scrap I had used (I think as a lifeline) and wet felt it to the end of my yarn in order to finish binding off and weave in the end! This is supposed to have 4 i-cords for ties at the shoulder but I will be adding ribbon for ties since I ran out of yarn. LOL
There is also a row of eyelets just below the smocked top for a ribbon to go through.

Also sewed up 13 mamacloth pads for a gift and for myself.

Gift Set:
This is a gift set to a special mama in Canada. Each has various soaker fabrics so she can try out various materials and also vairous shapes/sizes to see what she likes most.
