Crocheted Slippers for a Toddler

I haven't been doing too much crochet since I finished Jeremy's jacket. Certainly not any big projects anyway. I've found that when I do too much crochet I get terrible pain in my hands. Very sad considering I like it so much! But... I have made several small items that don't require days of constant work. One of these was a very cute pair of crocheted slippers for Jeremy. I finished them some weeks ago now, but only got around to threading in all the ends and sewing on the buttons the other day. Why did it take me so long? The weather warmed up so much that I got a little disheartened, knowing that Jeremy will never really wear them! Never mind.

Here they are anyway, cute slippers made from the base of a newborn bootee pattern. Clever me! I couldn't get Jeremy to stand still, so enjoy the collage!

I love the swirly white buttons!

Summer Top and Shorts Set for Baby

There are so many dresses out there on the market for little girls. It's a bit harder to find cute shirt and shorts sets that aren't made from t-shirt fabric... so, let me introduce you to one!

The summer top and shorts pattern has been designed to alleviate some of the issues that little people have with crawling in cute dresses. The skirted top still has all the cuteness of a little dress without the length, and the puffy little shorts add some colour while retaining modesty (or just covering a less-than-cute nappy).

This pattern is so simple to sew that I made no alterations to my original design! Pretty rare in the designing field of things. Simple to sew and cool to wear. What more could you want with Summer right around the corner?

You can find this pattern by clicking on the link below.
Summer Top and Shorts

Enjoy the pictures of my cute model, Rachel! She braved a very cold day to wear some little summer designs for me! I obviously need to work on taking pictures from the back too... the little top fastens with a button in the centre back!

More of my designs can be found on Etsy at RP Original!
