Here are the three latest additions:
All from Ottobre. Two I have made before and liked so much that I made in the next size up. The first is from Ottobre Spring 1/2011. #25. "Eleven & One"striped hoody. The boys in the house love hoodies, so this one is received well and will probably be made in every size for the next few years! I added long-sleeves under the short ones to this one again (the pattern is for a short-sleeved hoody).
This one was another favourite last time. I really like the slim-fit of this top. It is from Ottobre 4/2008. #25 "Pekka T-Shirt". This one will also be made alot - I like the ribbing binding on the neckline and short-sleeves, especially when I can use a funky striped ribbing for extra contrast.
Lastly, this one was a new top that I hadn't made before. It's fine, but definitley not my favourite. It's a little sloppy looking to me. Which may be partly because of Tommy's skinny frame. Would probably look better on a fuller kid! It's definitley still wearable and will fit him for awhile. This one is from Ottobre 1/2009. #22 "Harava" sweatshirt. The original pattern was for a double-sleeved top, but I decided to leave out the short-sleeves on this one.
So there you have it! Time to get stuck into some Summer sewing I think...better go and reasses the wardrobes and see what the kiddos are in need of!
Lots of Hilco and Stella knits from Crafty Mamas.
