Episode 3 - A lot of works!
1. KNITTING SECTION:
pattern by Myriam Forneris
This is a 2 years size.
I used Drops Baby Alpaca Silk for the main color in a really light dusty rose (col. 1306) and Drops Fabel in a variegated color in between purple, blue, ocre, off White (col. 904).
The pattern is already published on ravelry at this page.
It was so fast to knit and I really enjoy the process of creation!
It is versatile, you can use it both for girl or boy and you can decide if make the rounded bottom or not!
This was the first version of it, it's a 12 month size and I used Drops Baby Alpaca Silk in Off White for the main color and Light Grey for the contrasting color.
- Embroidered Baby Blanket
no pattern for now, maybe I will write some guide for doing a blanket or a free pattern on ravelry, stay tuned!
I'm soooo pleased whit this blanket! I have just a photo of the embroidery, for now, because a few inches down I embroidered her name but it is a secret for all my family and friends!!
When she borns I will put more photos and details!
I love this little doggy with flowers!!
Work in progress:
- Baby Dress
pattern by Myriam Forneris (still in working, maybe the name will change)
For this dress I'm using Drops Merino Extra Fine in green.
This is 6 month size. Just one sleeve left than I can write the pattern and send it to the test knitters!
If you are interessed to test-knit this dress, please send me a mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact me on ravelry where I am mycraftydream or via instagram @mycraftydream.
There will be sizes from 6 month to 10 years.
It is a really quick project because the yarn is worked with 4mm Needles.
2. SEWING SECTION:
- Baby Shirt and trousers
I adapted a Burda Sectembre 2013 I had at home. The shirt is mod. 146 and the trousers are mod. 144. For the shirt was required cotton and for the trousers some light denim. I want to make the 68 cm size which is some like 6 month, and I need some fabric that keeps hot. I had some red fleece in my stash, so I thought was perfect!
I made some ballons applique in the front of the shirt!
Then I started sewing all pieces a required from the models instructions.
I modified the closure of the shirt, and I put some pressure buttons!
(I'm not so good to follow directions...!)
However I am pretty satisfied for how they turn out!!!
3. CROSS STITCH SECTION:
- Set school for toddler
I embroidered this set for my Godson Leonardo. This year he will stars the maternal school!
It was an unexpected quick project!
Well... it is all for this episode!!
...TO THE NEXT TIME...
