I’d like to say thank you to my new visitors from the Right Start Mathematics Facebook page! I was so pleased to have my bags featured there. If you’re looking for more of my posts about homeschooling you can use this link, or go directly to my post about why we homeschool, which includes one of my favorite pictures of our schooling life–in which we are using Right Start Math!
Today I’m sharing another new baby outfit. Daphne needs to show her support for the home team this winter, and has outgrown the baby spiritwear she shared with her brother. I bought a cardinal embroidery pattern for my machine and made her a little personalized bodysuit, then made up some soft and sweet red corduroy pants which should be a good basic for her this holiday season as well. I didn’t use a pattern for the pants because I find I get the best results by just cutting around a pair that already fits her well.
Many knitters got started because they know someone who is always knitting, and they are a little jealous of all the fabulous things they make, right? It was no different with me. One of my mama friends is an excellent and avid knitter, and she inspired me to figure out the whole knitting thing a few years ago. She’s also generous, so for Daphne’s first birthday she made these gorgeous legwarmers that match the sweater she made Daphne as a newborn, and which the baby can still wear. Lucky Daphne! I wanted to create an outfit around the legwarmers, and I thought I already had the perfect skirt on hand so I sewed an embroidered applique to a white bodysuit to complete the outfit. I got this embroidery file free on emblibrary.com when it was their featured file of the month, and it couldn’t be any sweeter. One a cooler day she can swear it with the matching cardigan and she’ll be the cutest, coziest baby in the whole world. (I’m pretty sure.)
