                           Not the cutest Halloween card I've ever done, but here is this year's.

I bought this baby doll clothes pattern and I did not pay the $13.95, I got it half off. It has 3 sizes of baby doll clothes. I mixed pieces of patterns to get different looks, and used mostly cloth remnants I had on hand. Instead of doing facings, I cut double bodice tops and sewed them together inside out so I didn't have ragged edges or facing curling up. It works so much better.

I saw a crochet case on Pinterest and decided I wanted to make one. It is similar to this, but not exact. I made some changes. Also, I am brave (stupid?) to post this, because I made about a bazillion mistakes on it (ha-ha, you think I am kidding), but I am keeping it, mistakes and all, as it will serve my purpose. The weird thing is that I don't really crochet, but I have kinda/sorta stumbled through a few things, like an afghan once, and crocheting around burp cloths a couple of times. However, I do have learning to crochet on my bucket list, and I do want to save the few crochet hooks I do have.'This material is just cotton with a heavy pellon filler. I wasn't prepared for the sewing of the hook places to pucker the material like it did here, but I am not sure how to prevent it either.  Most of the materials were left over from other projects, and this went together fairly quickly, so I am happy with it and will have these together now where I can find them easily.
