I blogged about my clutches previously but I am just getting around to sewing them up. I bought more needles and was even brave enough (well after watching tons of you tube) to sew them together on the machine. The green one I used the zipper foot and the animal print one I did not. I only broke two needles and I think that is because of the thickness of the the layers. So future reference use size 18 needles.

This is a knittty pattern. I am making this one for my daughter. I has to cast on three times. First time I did not use waste yarn. Second re it was too long third time it was too short. She has to stand there while I castes on chains and held it to her hip (well her tummy ) til I got the right length. I am pairing it with grey to stretch the color yarn but I may run out grey before the color yarn but that is ok too. I may not be finished with hers before I leave but probably when I get back. She already has her riding boots and rights ready. I got her riding boots for $15 dollars as well. This is a pretty straight forward pattern mindless knitting the kind I like.

I wore my grey infinity dress on Tuesday. When I picked Lela up a parent said when you take your dress off put it in her book bag for me. I said I will make you one like this she said yeah and turned back to talk to me. Like wait you are serious. She said I like bright colors. I think this green is just right. It took me a minute to figure out how I was going to make I stayed up one night making a 42" quarter circle only for it to be too big when I bought the fabric. It is 42" long. When I tried it on it is just right. I will have to take it in some for her. I am just going to cut the elastic down. It came out great.

I wanted to used this fabric for a wrap sweater but I did not have enough. I saw the tutorial for this dress and hoped and prayed I had the 2 yds it called for. The edges need to hemmed but other than that I loved how it came out. I can't wait to make another one. By the way this fabric came from the bag of $3.50 bag of fabric from value village. Score!
I am so embarrassed by this picture but it the best one that I have at the moment and I am so excited that I actually made a convertible maxi dress. I think I am done though. They are not that easy to wrap. Monif C makes it look easy but it is not. I am sure with practice I will get better. I wrapped the striped one like a top paired it with black skinnies and red heels. Girl bye you could not tell me anything. One more thought. Convertible romper.
