What knitting and crafting is all about

It doesn't get much better than seeing something you've made being worn so beautifully.

It doesn't get much cuter than that either!

BOM VIII arrived and was promptly pieced together. It was designed by Bonnie Olaveson.

I couldn't be happier with my 1/4 inch presser foot! Time to redo BOM II.

She should have a name

She should have a name with all the personality she has but I can't think of a good one. In my last post I mentioned that I picked up quite a few free project sheets at my local Joann's. One was for this very cute "monster".

I had quite a bit of fleece left over from
this project so I decided to make one. I think she'll accompany the jacket set when that goes. Any ideas on a name?

Butterick 5092...Vintage?

I bought this Butterick baby fleece pattern a few years ago. I just did a search and found it listed under vintage patterns. Geez. It didn't seem like that long ago. Anyhoo, I did make the jacket and hat once and really liked the pattern. Joann's had a huge fleece sale a few weeks ago and you know how that goes. I bought the cutest pink and white dog fleece fabric and a coordinating white with black paw print. I thought I'd make this pattern again but with matching pants and scarf this time.

You can't really see the buttons too good but they are paw print buttons. They really make the jacket.

I have quite a lot of fleece left over. I picked up a cute free pattern at Joann's for a Funny Fleece Doll. I think I'll make one to go with this outfit.
