I promised it, well, here it is! In a previous post I talked about how I did sew a toddler’s jacket from an old sleeping bag I had. Well, I used the remaining fabric to sew a small sleeping bag for my toddler. I wanted the sleeping bag to have sleeves, as my son is not used to being bundled up anymore. Since as far as I know no such pattern exists (maybe I should make one), I freehanded the pattern using a vest as a reference point. Here’s how I did it.
Okay, if you’ve been following me lately you’ll notice I was quiet from the Pinterest/Facebook/blogging scene in the past week. Well, I’ve been a busy bee! After our camping trip I had to take a few days to recover from the exhaustion of organizing it all and then I started working on another project. In one of the lasts posts I talked about how we did go camping with our one year old and how I had to quickly sew a jacket for my son. I had been looking for a light jacket for my toddler for ages but still couldn’t find any in the multiple stores I shopped at. With the camping trip coming up I found myself short of toddler sized cool weather clothes and I wanted to find a quick solution.
Hey y’all, I was working on a sweater crochet project last week and I must admit it is not going so good. The sweater I did is too big for me. So while I was pondering whether I should frog it or keep it too big I decided to attempt a smaller project. I designed my first pattern, yay! Well, it’s not so much a “pattern” as it is two different stitches combined in multicolor to create something nice. While working on said sweater, I fell in love all over again with the Half-double crochet stitch. There really is something soothing about that stitch. It works up fast and is a no brainer (great for when you’re also watching Game of Thrones and need to concentrate on the numerous characters, ha!). To create this Kindle Fire Sleeve, I used some leftover yarn I already had from a previous project for my son.
