|Please excuse the mess behind us and the fact that I still was wearing my pajamas ;)|
I just realised that there's a few things handmade in this photo, when in fact I only wanted to picture one. hehehe
That thing I was hoping to take the shoot to was the adorable leg warmers baby G. is wearing. They were made by my mother. This is the second pair, she actually made a pink/salmon pair before, but G. hasn't used them yet, and this one is by far much cuter. Mom had made two pairs before for my nice. She's a quick knitter. The same can't be said about me. I could only stitch one way, and it was straight, I never knew how to start, and easily forget how to end something. Not to say I would take months to actually finish anything i'd knit.
Though a few weeks ago, I asked mom to p l e a s e teach me again (!), I wanted to make G. a scarf. And I have learnt how to start it on my own. Mom tried to thaught me but I was being a very slow learner and she quit. =( Shame one me. But then, I decided I was going to pull it through, and after a single try I made it. I finally understood how to make it.
Only a couple of weeks after, the scarft was done.
what?! But baby G. won't let me put it on her. Not even to take a single picture =( So I had no choice but to use a bear as a model. At the edges of the scarf I attached two pompoms. I didn't make a pompom in years, and I made them amazingly fast. Hurray for me!
My next goal is to make her a bonnet... f e a r i t!
I actually finished another knitting project right before I started the scarf, but it still needs a little button touch and then I will share it.
Now let's get back to the beggining of this post. Let me just point out the other handmade stuff showing on the photos above.
First thing is the hair clip hanger baby G. is holding on her hands. It was a blank canvas I turned into a clip hanger, and it matched the decor in her room. It is made of the same fabric I used for her curtains, bed cover, pillow, and crib protectors.
Second thing is the sock monkey I have showed you here.
Third thing, is the clip with the red flower on it. I made it a while ago, way before she was born.
