I managed to get a bit of crafting in on an evening too, I made another couple of bears for mum and a pram blanket (like the one I knitted for eily a while ago). I'd just started knitting a top for myself when mum asked me if I could make someone a pair of knitted slippers like the ones I made before christmas, so my top has been put on hold while I knit those now.
Yestereday I did a bit of sewing and made this dress for Eilys grandaughter. I made a prototype a while ago in plain white fabric but it was much too big in size. The pattern said fits 3-6 months but it was more suitable for a toddler and even showed a picture of a baby wearing it standing up who looked at least one. Hubby and I played about with the sizing and came up with what we hope is a better size for a baby. Its a pale pinky lilac colour with a little white daisy print and then I have added a white daisy trim to the neck waist and hem, it fastens with two buttons on the back.
