SpongeBob PJ pants

Yay for spongebob! The kids absolutely LOVE these! I took the picture on my phone so it's a little blurry!

Crocheted hair accessories

Okay, these are so fun! And so simple it's really a crime!

They only require a few yards of yarn, so it's great for using up scraps.

You can find the pattern here:

Scrap blanket

This is the mother of all grannies!

I had some leftovers that I simply couldn't toss, so this is what evolved.

Knit dress

I really would like to master the art of working with knits. It's harder than I thought it would be... really hit or miss.

This came out "okay". The girl loves it because it's so soft and well, has bright flowers on it. I have enough fabric to try at least one other pattern, so I'm going to give it another shot.

Fun spring butterfly dress

This is just a simple dress pattern... it wasn't designed to be smocked, but this alteration is super easy to make. Instead of using the bottom part of the dress pattern, simply use the entire width of the fabric for both the front and back and pleat a few rows. The simple addition of a few smocking rows really adds a personal touch. Sorry this is a wrinkly mess!
