And Another Soaker

Ok, so here is another soaker. You will be seeing alot of these and diapers through out the next months :) I started this soaker on the plane and ran out of yarn, so I had Shane send me another skein and I finished it up tonight. When I get home I am looking forward to getting some circular needles and trying some of the other soaker patterns suggested to me.

Dyed Soaker

Ok, this was the first soaker I knitted. I went ahead and added the ruffle legs and dyed it. I decided Trin can use it at night since she is still in cloth pull ups at night. I wanted it to be a little more pink but I didn't add enought water, but Trin is happy with it. I'm gonna lanolize it tonight so it will be ready for tomorrow night.

Third Soaker

Ok, here is my latest soaker. I made this one for Karina with some yarn she gave me. This is a size newborn. Oh so tiny and cute! I am also working on putting ruffle legs on my first soaker. Karina taught me how to crocet them so I should hopefully be posting that tomorrow.
I's gonna be pretty dull around here since the only thing I can really do now is knit soakers. I also started a soaker on the plane and then ran out of yarn, but Shane mailed me some more today so as soon as I get that I can finish my other one. The color for that one is black, grey, and white.

From Hawaii

Well, the children and I are in Hawaii visiting my sister so I probably won't be posting any new projects for a bit. I am working on some soakers here and there so I will try to post those when I get them finished.

Another New Dress

Here is another dress like the purple one I made for Trin. This was the original fabric Trin had picked out, but then she saw the purple and chose that. Well, since the fabric was 60% off and they were practically giving it away I went back and got it and made her another dress similar to her other.

This one does not have folds at the bottom, but instead I put ruffles.

New Pajama Bottoms for Trin

Here are Trin's new pajama bottoms. They were pretty easy. I sewed them up last night. I really love this flannel. I bought it to start making diapers, but ended up with this. I got this flannel at my Walmart for 50% off. It is one of the ones that are closing their fabric department :(

Trin was being really cuddley with Daddy this morning. These were some pics I took before I got her pj pics. She even wanted Daddy to walk to the door with her to get her pic taken, it was really sweet.

Mycah's New Napkins

Here are Mycah's new napkins. He picked out this fabric for them. He LOVES planes and helicopters. I had wanted to make more than three, but with trying to cut the napkins so they have the whole plane on them makes it harder to get as many out of the fabric. They are backed with cream flannel.

I also finished a pair of pajama bottoms for Trin tonight, but she is not up to try them on so I will post pics of them tomorrow :)

First Knitted Wool Soaker

Here is my first soaker. I'm glad I'm finally able to make my own. I really want to make gender specific soakers, but for now plain white will have to do. The legs are not finished yet. I'm waiting to know the sex of the baby before I add them, and too dye it. I have lots of soaker making ahead of me. I have to get Karina's soakers and my own soakers made. I can't wait till I can add some designs too the back of them :)
Also, If you have any other free soaker pattern sites I could check out just leave it in the comments section..thanks so much.
I got this pattern at here

Trin's New Dress

Here is a dress I finished for Trin last night. It's a really cute little dress. She picked out her fabric and keeps wanting to know when it will be finished.

I appliqued some flowers on it then hand embroidered the stems. This was my first time hand embroidering and I must say that it can be addicting. I really hope to learn more hand embroidery in the future.

Here are "tucks" that are at the bottom of her dress.

And finally just a pic of the back.

Now I just have to finish all the other projects on my list. I need to start getting diapers made. I bought some flannel to start making some fitteds, but it's so cute I might make Trin some pajama bottoms. I need to start knitting soakers. I got a good pattern I think so hopefully in the next few days I will start on my first soaker. I have a baby quilt I need to get finished as a baby gift. Plus all the extra fun things that I just want to do.
