Christmas Stockings

Posted on

My friend asked me to knit a couple of Christmas stockings for her boys. One in green and the other blue. I am working on the blue stocking at the moment. It is almost done.
Recently I completed an order of five newborn diaper covers. The customer requested gussets and snap down at the waist.
It has been a while since I last made newborn sized diapers. They are so tiny!

        


Knitting and Sewing. Oh, and crocheting.

Posted on

I have had a few knitting projects. The recent one was a vanilla wool soaker in small size. The baby boy was born a few weeks ago.

 

I love this pattern. It is so quick and easy to knit. Plus, it was designed to have so much room for cloth diaper bulk in the crotch area. I made a few of these for my youngest child. Love it!

 

I am going to make a few more and list them up for sale when they’re done. So keep an eye on the store!

 

Last month, Fun For Tots was introduced by a blogger, Lisa at The Secret Life of a SAHM. As a result, I gained over a hundred new fans on my page. A huge THANK YOU to Lisa!

I held a giveaway for once my page gained its 200th fan. We had a winner and she won a custom fitted diaper. This is also for a boy with snap closure.
I have two more winners for the July 4th draw so I have two more custom fitted diapers to make. :)

 

At the moment, I am about 35% done with a crocheting project for a good friend of mine. She commissioned me to crochet two Christmas stockings for her sons. Great projects!

Recently, Fun For Tots had an opportunity to contribute to a giveaway held by The Secret Life of a SAHM (TSLS).
Go to the website and see for yourself what she does. It’s amazing!  She also has a Facebook page.

I have gained a lot of new fans since I worked with Lisa, the owner of TSLS. Thank you so much, Lisa, for the great advertisement and business opportunity!

 


Sock Monkey Longies

It’s done and on its way to the owner!

This was a fun project. I have several longies patterns, but none have the sock monkey design. I had to figure out how to put in the mouth, where to put the eyes. All in all, it turned out good. :)

I am open now for custom cloth diapers and other knitted apparels order. Send me a message at funfortots@jsminn.com if you are interested!


Sock Monkey longies

A client of mine requested a sock monkey longies made for her son. I look around for a pattern that I could use to sell the finished product. I couldn’t find any.

What I ended up doing was coming up with my own pattern for the longies. It’s been trial and error process but I am done with the body of the longies. I am now working on one leg.

It was fun!

I will post the photos when it is completed.


Custom order; Chickadee Overalls

Posted on

A customer of mine ordered a pair of overalls for her 18 months old son. She picked Brown Sheep Lanaloft handpainted yarn in Aqua Depths, and I picked Brown Sheep Lanaloft Worsted in Praline for trim. Buttons are from Tessa Ann Designs. I love her craft!

I love this pattern. It is so quick to knit and fits very well.
