Showcase of Recent Projects

I promised about a month ago to begin doing more show ‘n tell posts on projects I am working on or have completed.

Here I am to fulfill that promise….slightly out of breath and a little worn, truth be told.

Between working full-time and wedding planning, working on my side interests is all about making time for them. However, since I also have a shop where people can request handmade gifts, the customer comes first if an order comes in.

Before I was graced with two back-to-back orders totaling ten amigurumi, I had just finished up the following:

Baby Pastel Crochet Washcloths

Cotton crochet baby washcloths, currently in the shop

Folded Pastel Baby Blanket 2

25″ baby blanket, currently available in the shop

I was SO proud when I finished that blanket because it was the first one I had ever done in the corner-to-corner design that is quite popular right now. I added a border and voilà! 

And prior to that, I had just finished this little miracle:

Shell Baby Sundress - Front

That, my friends, is a newborn baby sundress. It’s pretty much the “I die” of baby outfits.

I had just started on a second baby blanket (no photos yet!) when I got two orders within a week for ten amigurumi animals. I just shipped them out on Saturday morning. Here they are in all their adorable glory:

Amigurumi Order

I’m still doing my photography, of course, and have put up a few pieces for sale in the shop, like this one:  

Though we’re under five months until the wedding (eep!), I have heard from a multitude of friends and family that they are expecting a child around the same time, so I have all these ideas for care boxes of baby things I want to make and send to people, but there simply are not enough hours in the day to carry out all of my pho-chet dreams. I’ll simply have to go into overdrive when all of my party planning days are behind me!

This concludes the first installment of Pho-chet Showcase with yours truly. If you are a fellow crafter and/or are curious about anything you see here, please leave some love in the comments!
