Just a reminder that I will make a random draw this afternoon, from the comments this week for a copy of "Posh Pocket Sewing Tips"; a handy little book filled with great sewing tips and advice!
I've been communicating with a local photographer about making little hats and diaper covers for photo props. I finally got to meet up with her yesterday and sell her a few things. In exchange for a discount, she will let me use (with the parents' permission) her photos of the items. However, when I was leaving, I realized I hadn't taken pictures for the blog! Then I remembered the deal. Then I realized that I hadn't weighed some of the items! She loved the pink/beige hat with the flower, and I knit a diaper cover to go with it, 30gr. I also made a dark blue diaper cover to go with the soldier boy cap, a little bigger and denser yarn, 40gr. She didn't like the hat, particularly the yellow band. Perhaps if I used proper gold trim....or just take it off. I wasn't thrilled about it either. It does appear though that she doesn't like the bold boy type of hat, she likes more neutral and soft. I also made a long red and white striped stocking cap and striped diaper cover. Going to estimate 100gr for the hat and 35gr for the cover. She wants a few more items, and showed me some pictures of what she likes. Hopefully this leads to even more!
I don't like photoless posts, so here's a little picture (why does it seem smaller than pictures on other posts? I've even set this at "large" when usually I think I do "medium" and that was definitely smaller than usual). Taken on Thanksgiving weekend at my parents' almost a month ago!
