Newly Made

Now that the snow is gone, the rain has set in. Rainy days are when I do the most sewing and knitting. With April's birthday just around the corner, I've been busy making new things for her.

This little tunic is a modification on this tunic dress. The pattern was a little wonky so I'm not thrilled with the finished look but it is cute and easy. The fabric is some Amy Butler fabric I bought in the summer.

I also made April some more Quick Change Trousers from the Handmade Beginnings book. I really do love these pants. Not only are they easy to make, they fit my cloth diapered baby so well. I was excited to find some purple fabric that matched the yarn I used to make her Plain Vest. This is the second time I've made this pattern. I wasn't very happy with the results the first time so this time I made a ton of modifications (Ravelry notes here).

Finally, I made her this sweet little hat. It is a small version of the Felicity hat. I used some Ewe and Me sportweight yarn in Rootbeer Float. It was a fast knit and gave me a chance to use my brand new interchangeable needles. I LOVE these needles. I can't wait to do more knitting.
