the completed pink cot quilt to take to matilda's market in november... if i can bear to part with it.
little sunhat for mae. made from this pattern (found thanks to summer pickles) but it seemed way too shallow to stay on anybody's head, let alone a baby's, so i added some loose elastic. still don't know if she'll ever wear it but it's pretty cute, anyway.
not two weeks after telling dana that i had given up on the idea of even sewing myself clothes, i decided on a whim to whip up this tunicy top from one of my japanese craft books. but, you see, i'm not at my japanese waif-y best after giving birth three months ago so it's a little *snug* around the hip area, where it should be all loose and flowy. whatever, it was a great experience and i'll hang onto it until it fits properly. i promised myself that i wouldn't by any more japanese craft books until i actually finished something from one of them so you know what this means... except that now i have to wait for the aussie dollar to recover a bit. damnit.
selvedge from the above top, just cause it's so nice. so nice, in fact, that i decided to forgo hemming (which i hate anyway) and leave the selvedge on the bottom and sleeves of the top.
