FO T-Shirt

Because of project 333 I decided to repurpose this shirt for Zooey (plus it would be a great time to test out my serger).
 I looked high and low online for a free t-shirt pattern and couldn't find one that was the right size and/or style.  I decided to wing it.  Here is what happened!

I wanted it longer - the serger didn't work like I thought and the sleeves were a bit big in dimension - so I pleated them a little.

Overall I learned a ton and will be ready for the next one!

FO Scarf/Shawl

Project Details:
This is one of my "must knit something with handspun".  I started on May 17th and finished today August 23rd.  The pattern is Emerald Starling.  Super fast and fun to knit.  I've decided that this would be a birthday gift for a friend.  This was the TDF handspun from Into The Whirled - Starcrossed.  The stripes are a bit much for me - but overall I think it came out pretty.

FO Stuffed Animal Pillow

Anyone with a small kid knows you get lots of stuffed animals.  Zooey plays with some - but others not yet.  I read about this pillow and thought it would be perfect.  I didn't follow the instructions for the clear plastic top (thinking Z would prefer to sit on fabric).  You can read all about making these pillows at Sewing The Littleheart Collection.

In other weekend sewing I added ribbon to these pants that needed an extra inch of length and I tacked up a pair of capris! Great projects this weekend!

WIP - What Do You Do?

I've been spending each night working on this scarf.  I'm doing it out of handspun (which I love) and the pattern is easy to work through.  Here is my dilemma - it is very slow going.  I like progress where I see something taking form.  There is no form with this - just something that is longer and longer.  I'm thinking about casting on for a fall sweater for Zooey.  Thoughts?  What do you do with projects like this?

FO Wedding Quilt

Finally done and ready for my sister!  Her wedding quilt.  Each block is 27" square - which is just massive.  But I think the love ring pattern looks nice.  The quilted pattern is snowflakes.  Now I just need to see her to give it to her!  Oh and it is king sized!
