I feel like I'm getting out of that. A lot of it was feeling unprepared but I feel better now. More confident and happy with my choices.
I picked up the hook a few days ago and started working on a dress idea for Miss Mae. Originally I'd intended this design to end up on this thrifted pink shirt.
But as the color choices came together I realized that I didn't love it. So I bought a fire engine red shirt and it.was.amazing. I love the combo.
There is nothing fancy about it. It's simple, sweet, muted. The red is the star.
I simply made some 2 round granny squares. Seven in all to fit around my girl. Then I did a round of double crochet around each square and attached them and did a double crochet border on the top and bottom. The sleeves are also double crochet. I used a cotton yarn to reduce the stretching.
After all of that was done I just cut the top off of a large tshirt and attached my crochet creation to it with elastic thread. It worked out beautifully.
I already have another skein of a pretty magenta cotton to go with that pink shirt and I'll be making up another dress this week.
It's so simple and easy. I'm happy to be at it again.
