Little booties

I made these sweet little booties for a little girl soon to be born in our ward. Really very easy. It is the same pattern I used for these. Sometimes I find a pattern that works and stick with it. I've started my third wallaby sweater and have the yarn for a fourth. These are both great basic patterns for the more experienced beginning knitter.

Art Gallery

I totally snagged this idea from Sarah Jane Studio. The changes I made: a couple of different animal shapes, watercolor instead of fingerpaints, and just freehand the words with permanent marker. Really fun, super easy, and got the kids involved!

New doll dress

Remember this doll? I finally made a nice new dress for her not too long ago. Carolina really likes her little "dolly."

My grandma is great at finding me really cool older books and patterns for dolls and other crafts. I found the pattern for this dress from a book called "Dollmaker's Workshop" by Vera Guild. 1981.
