This and that

This...

is the beginning of a wall hanging. I just thought I would cut up some fabrics that were hanging around. Plus signs in various batiks plus other fabrics.
 
That is a vest I made for the groom with a rounded front. The bride didn't think he would wear it anyway but I did make it. My son Mark tried it on so I thought it would fit. Well, since I didn't get a measurement for the back waist (the distance between the bone at the top of the spine and the waist,) it didn't fit properly anyway. So, I asked Mark if he wanted it and he said yes. It still has the basting on the edge. I do that after I turn things right-side out so that it can get ironed nicely. I suppose I should take the basting out so it doesn't leave a permanent mark.

I'm knitting too. It's a small pullover for Teemu knitted all in one piece. Less sewing up for me which is good. It's a free pattern on ravelry which links to this Lion Brand yarn pattern. I had some Comfort 12 yarn in a nice denim colour that was in my stash so that's what I wanted to use for it. I'll show it once it's further along.

  1. A plus sign quilt is on my list too! Your blue and green shades are beautiful together. I do the same with garments with a lining, either baste or just use pins to get nice edges when ironing. The pullover pattern is cute and the garter stitch allows the pullover to grow with the boy.
