Before I flew to the states, I was actively making crocheted things as gifts for my three nieces: Claire, Aerin and Zoe.
The above picture is a kimono style jacket that I made for Claire. It’s pink with green edges and I really hope at some point I can get a picture of her wearing it. It took me about a month to make it and I was thinking it would be a good layering piece, plus it’s short sleeved so she can wear it even in the spring and summer.
I made this dress for both Aerin and Zoe. The ribbons tie on the shoulder so it’s adjustable and the ribbon can easily removed. I did this without a pattern and eyeballed it. I had the thought that they could remove the ribbons as they get taller and turn it into a skirt. I love the color of the cotton yarn and it almost has a vintage feel. Love it!
I made ponchos for all the girls. I also eyeballed this and had so much fun making them. What is it about miniature things that are so adorable? Oh yeah, it’s because it’s tiny! Haha I made this yellow and white one with Sugar n’ Cream cotton yarn. I made this one for Claire since she looks great in bright colors.
I made two ponchos in this multi-colored yarn for Aerin and Zoe. I figured it is an easy layering piece that can be thrown over what they are wearing to keep warm.
And look how adorable Z looks in it! I hope C and A like it as much!
I bought all three girls a bunch of dresses from Shanghai. My BFF got so excited about them and had Zoe try them on right away! She looked so adorable in them so we took pictures. If you happen to be my FB friend, you saw the pics yesterday.
I have to say that I’ve been feeling great staying with the BFF. She always makes me feel so appreciated, loved and I just love her daughter! I can’t believe how happy Zoe is all the time and Z seems to really take a liking to me.
I’m definitely getting recharged, nothing like a good week with the BFF to make everything in the world right again.
However, I am jet lagged. I keep falling asleep during the day and now I’m up at 5am. Lol
What do you think of the things I made? Thumbs up? I hope.
there may be some serious spelling and grammar errors. I’m writing from my phone and I’m under the influence of jet lag!
