Felted Clogs...

These slippers were knitted using the Big Snuglet pattern. I needle felted the lotus flower design on "free hand".  I discovered that when you do something like this trying to get the designs to match perfectly is absolutely insane.

Advent Calendar

I came up with this pattern a few years ago for my Mom's birthday.  Because this pattern is so portable it works up in no time! You can use any worsted weight yarn for this project…a perfect way to use up your ends.

I kept an F hook and a little worsted in my purse and thanks to the inordinately long wait at our Urgent Care center, public school and the Flu I was able to knock my calendar out in no time.

The Pillowcase Dress

The Pattern/Tutorial trend is a wonderful thing because it  is not just a set of measurements and pattern pieces.  In most cases they provide extremely detailed step-by-step instructions - WITH PICTURES!

One rainy day I found The Betsy Dress  on Etsy and within hours I was whipping out my own dresses! 

Master the basic dress and then you can do just about anything....

I found this great applique design at Trendy Stitches , added a ruffle and people are just going crazy for this dress. 

With a long sleeved T-shirt and a pair of leggings and these little dresses can be worn all year.  Add a few inches to the length and it's a nightgown...the possibilities are limitless.

Double Ruffle Knot Dress

LOVE this pattern from Little Lizard King!  The only downside is that I can't "French Seam" my way through it...going to have to learn to use the serger.

*Just to be clear- a serger is not required for this pattern, it helps, but not required.
