I'm so not good at posting on my blog... These are a few of the things I've been working on lately. For Halloween I sewed mr. man a costume out of fleece which was horrible to work with. He was Max from Where the Wild Things Are. A friend sent me a link to a tutorial for the hat on Instructables. The jumpsuit was an old pattern I found on etsy for $3 for flannel pjs. Worked out pretty well.
I've been wanting to learn how to knit and crochet for a long time now. I tried a little bit of knitting, and I made my husband a huge ass scarf he will never wear. lol... Crocheting so far seems so much easier. I still haven't perfected it, but my first project was little beanies for the nieces. This one I was happy with. Practice makes perfect! I ordered the pattern on etsy. This girl's patterns rock because not only are they inexpensive, easy to read, and delivered electronically.... she also will allow you to sell what you make using her pattern.
I've also found some projects on ravelry.com I'd like to give a whirl, but for now, I think I need to get started on the advent calendar I want to make before December gets here. I really dig this felt kit I found, but I obviously won't have time to do that before the end of the month. Last year I was pretty ambitious with my son's felt kit stocking, and I had no idea how long it would take. It truly takes patience.
Anyway, those are a few of the things I've been working on. Not terribly exciting but still fun!
