Projects for Butterfly
I have started working on some projects for Butterfly's Birthday, other than the sweater of rainbow doom. I am making her a sewing kit, a bag with snap tape closure (yes I started it as a knitting bag for myself,) but I had not finished it, so I added the closure and a handle. I gathered some embroidery floss, and yarn, some plastic canvas shapes and a small hoop. I found a plastic yarn needle and a embroidery one. I sewed her a sewing case from scraps of other projects and knit and felted a heart to hold the needles. I want to find a small pair of snips and tuck some fabric in yet.
I also made her a skirt from bit of this and that laying around. The fabric in the bottom picture was a failed attempt at lining the Moses basket we used for her. I have taken it apart and added a bottom layer to the skirt. I can't wait for her to see it, but I have to wait, and so do you.
