Simply Shells Purse

I saw a really cute knock off purse on the forum. I just had to try making one of my own.

I made this taupe colored purse out of 100% acrylic yarn and lined it with a real cute man in the moon pattern fabric. The main color of the lining is green. It measures 10" wide x 7" tall.

This is available for sale in my etsy shop. I hope you like it.

Christmas Tree Skirt

This picture is too dark to do this Christmas Tree Skirt justice. I made it out of green and red acrylic yarn. This is the round ripple pattern and I did it in three hours.

Blossom in Buff

I created this beautiful headband and submitted it for the 2009 Pattern a Day Calendar. This was my first submission so I am really excited. I have never done a pattern of my own before. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Blanket Buddy

I also didn't like the mouth on this blanket buddy for Emily so I fixed it.

Emily's Dress

I made this dress for my Granddaughter, Emily. It is made with Caron Simply Soft Off White Yarn. The pattern is from The free pattern is called Sitting Pretty.

The stitches are rows of single crochet and treble with a crossover.

It will be a few months before she is big enough to fit into it. It is a size 9 months to approximately 12 months.

I didn't like the way the neckline went so I filled it in a little bit with single crochet. I will post a picture as soon as the batteries in my camera charge back up.

Happy 2nd Birthday to my sweet Grandson Dillon.

Basketweave Bag

I made this for my co-worker's daughter for Christmas.

I didn't have a pattern and I am pretty happy with the way it turned out.

It measures about 12" x 12" with a long shoulder strap. It is the basketweave stitch.

I also lined it with a basic stripe pattern material and crocheted a flap and sewed a button for a closure.
