Catching up...with baby steps
I made this little sack for my new nephew...of course I haven't posted in a while and now he's 2 years old. Just kidding, it hasn't been THAT long, but he is 2 months old : )
I hope this fit him at some point, though not anymore! While I was making it, I was thinking how small it seemed, but I sized it up against a little 5 week old and it seemed like it would be alright. I don't know for sure.
Yarn: Berroco Comfort DK
Washing: machine wash and dry until nearly dry
Pattern: Mrs. Brak's Drawstring Bottom Baby Kimono with Raglan Shaping by Georgia Porter
Mods: I made a crochet chain to tie it....and a matching little hat
Buttons: from a crazy little italian shop!
There's an Italian woman at the library who directed me to a button/fabric store. There were dozens and dozens of boxes stacked up to the ceiling. Each box had a dozen or so little buttons stuck on the front of the lid. The idea was to point to a box that might have something of interest and then the sales lady would get it down and help you. I found the buttons straight away and I love them. Of course, I forgot to sew on the spare : (
Overall the pattern was seriously CUTE! I would definitely be interested in more sizing information next time.
I decided not to place a scarey-looking dolly in it for picture purposes, you can thank me later : )
