FO Friday - 4/22/2016

Happy Earth Day Peeps!

I finished the Zaria Shawl a week ago, but I can't show it to you because it's currently on the blocking boards. (Have I ever told you how much I really don't like the finish work of a knitted project?)

I do have some things to show you though.

First up, I finished my first Loopy Academy assignment...one out of three done. Woohoo! (With the Zaria Shawl being done, I have finished all the knitting assignments, unless I decide to do Extra Credit.)

We were asked to make a pair of pajama or lounge pants. 


Now Y'all, I used to sew garments all the time, but it's been a while. We had to use at least two yards of fabric; so, I bought two yards, figuring it would be enough. I figured wrong. 

I had to make mine Capri length and that is allowed for this assignment. I ended up buying a fat quarter of one of the other fabrics in the collection to trim them up a bit and make them look a little more interesting.


The fabric is by Moda, from their Table for Two collection.

Next, I had some fabric that I bought from MadTosh Crafts a while back; so, I thought it would make a little outfit for Princess Niece. 


I used a pattern called Double Crosser from the book "Cute Clothes for Kids."  

I hope it fits her. It looks about right, but I didn't take any of her measurements. Sometimes I'm crazy like that. I figure that if it doesn't fit her, there are baby girls being born all the time and I could gift it. Plus, I have enough cute fabric that I can make her two others in a more accurate size.

The dress is fully lined and it is supposed to be reversible. I even made bias tape from the main fabric to trim off the bottom edge. 


I figured it would look like it was supposed to go with the bloomers when she wears it on that side.


Finally, I made a pillowcase for Princess Niece to go with the quilt I made her last month. 


I think it's going to be my April Loopy's Monthly Mixer fabric project. We're supposed to make something by our favorite designer. Since I designed this pillowcase from scratch, I figured I can be my favorite designer. I like me as well as anyone else out there.

I used the same fabric that I used to back her quilt for the main part. I designed the cute (if I do say so myself) trim from scraps leftover from her quilt to snazzy it up a bit.


I did a fancy stitch on the hem.


I even used French seams.


So, that's it.

MK out.
