These purses (24/50) were constructed using the Buttercup Bag pattern by Rae Hoekstra. This pattern has been on my to-do list for ages, and I'm glad I finally got around to trying it. The purse doesn't require much fabric, which is a bonus. It's perfect for using some the FQs that I have hoarded over the years. I like the size and shape of this pattern, and I know I will be saving this pattern for future projects!
It's never easy to craft for a boy. You can't make him a cute purse, a set of pretty hairclips or knit him a lace shrug. When I saw this pattern, I knew I had to make Q a pair of jammies for his birthday.
Aliens and astronauts. This was just about the most boyish age-appropriate flannel fabric I could find in my local shops.
I hope it fits Q. The pattern was a bear to follow, and I have no plans to make another one (well, not in 2010, anyhow).
Blankie for baby W, measuring approximately 42" by 42"...made with soft cotton flannel and cotton chenille. The patchwork was pre-made, which helped! Anyhow, this is waaaay overdue! CH's baby was born a couple of weeks earlier. But this is how it rolls in my general schedule these days. LATE *sigh* Better late than never, I suppose!
