Two new tops

The babe is going to have dozens of these tops as I work out all the kinks, to get a version good enough to make for sale. I'm quite liking this first one, I think I got this one just the way I wanted it. Except that I need to make it just a teeny bit longer.
Here's a (kinda blurry) full-body shot
If anyone has any helpful tips as to how to get a 1-year-old to stand still for more than a nanosecond, please, please tell me! :) Anyway, here's the second top, butterflies and tiny polka dots. :)
Next I'm thinking of making the raglan dress with long sleeves, I have a couple ideas already. :) Stay tuned!

And as a final note, my boy went to his very first soccer tournament yesterday. They played three half-hour games, and his team even won one game! Here he is with his brand-new medal.
And yes, he usually always stands around with his mouth open like that, staring blankly into the ditance. :D


  1. Hooray for soccer! (And the fact that they come home exhausted!) Congrats to the boy. I love the tops! They're gorgeous!

  2. I'm glad to hear that you are going to make some to sell, because they are too cute and you have the talent!

  3. You have been way too busy! I can hardly keep up! Love these new tops! Love the skulls here and on the dress too! I think all little girls should have skulls in their wardrobe! I have absolutely no advice on keeping the 1yo still, mine is now 12 and still on the move!! Good Luck!

  4. Dorothy - thanks, I'm very happy with these two tops! And soccer rocks! :) Altho apparently my boy doesn't get exhausted from anything, not even going to soccer practice after school.

    Amybel - thank you for your kind words! I'm still trying to decide on what I should make to sell.. Plus I have no idea whatsoever what I should charge.. Decisions, decisions. :)

    Michele - I'm faster than the speed of lightning. :D Skulls are a must for any fashionable baby. :)

  5. The tops are gorgeous! And congratulations to your boy! :)
