Second Crochet dress - New Born Baby

 Hello ! 

I  made another version of my crochet dress posted here.
Same techniques and materials are used. The design is included only on the front side of the dress. Back side is woven in continuous half double crochet. I also embroidered small flowers on the skirt to give more effects to the black frill.


This dress is suitable for 0-4 months baby.Made of soft cotton twine.

Recycled Quilt - 1st Quilt

 Sharing our first Quilt experience with you all. 
front view

This quilt is made by me and my mum for my daughter S.  The quilt is suitable for kids single bed and cosy to provide warmth in the cool winter nights. 
Rajasthani motif - elephant

We made this quilt over a year ago when the quilt bug got to us! We decided to use all the fabrics lying around the house to learn the ropes of trade. We followed step-by-step quilter's guide in making this quilt. 


Little One - S
 I personally never expected this project to turnout even up to use able standards let alone sharing on the blog! But when I showed it to our little one , she absolutely loved it and was frolicking on it for good 30 minutes.... so I decided to capture this moment and share with my blogdost (blog friends)

Closer Look
 Materials used: 
  1. Queen bed fitted bedspread(chequered blue)
  2. Cotton skirt with rajasthani print 
  3. Brother Sewing machine
  4. Fabrics scraps as wadding 
  5. Spare acrylic wool to made woollen lace
  6. crochet needle
 Process:
  1. Cut out triangles and squares with various motifs from the Rajasthani Block Print Skirt 
  2. Washed these swatches before stiching them to blue fabric strips. 
  3. Joined the blue strips with chequered strips 
  4. Cutout one continuous rectangle from the bedspread to work as backing. 
  5. Sandwiched various fabrics scraps (cotton only) in between as wadding. 
  6. Pinned all the three layers and sew straight lines at equal distance with sewing machine( this was tricky part as the scraps were of various lenghts and thicknesses) 
  7. Attached bias strips from the remaining blue cloth from the bedspread. 
  8. Using spare wool crocheted small lace with double crochet and attached it to the blue rectangles with hand sewing
    Back side

Things we learnt: This was very steep learning curve for us. 
  1. Always use polyester or cotton wadding material rather than fabrics scraps for big quilts (as stiching fabric scraps is time consuming)
  2. Consider seam allowance while cutting the various pieces 
  3. Never be ashamed of your projects :D

A-Line Frock for Toddler

front side
Hello Friends! 
Finally there's one tick in our "to do list" for this year!
My mum made this dress for S recently.Yes its the same Ikea fabric used in this project as I mentioned in my previous post here
back side - close-up

I am super impressed with the dress. The fabric is really thick makes it perfect for layering in autumn weather! 
back side
Also the dandelion pattern makes my girl look tall and very adorable.
The dress is very easy to wear for toddlers (especially the ones who love dress by themselves) as there's only one press button at the back 
and simple belt to tie at the back. 
Seeing a big grin on S face made the efforts worthwhile for the proud Granny!

Happy crafting! 

(Please contact me if you would like to custom make a similar dress for your little one )
