Handmade in 2017

Here’s what I’ve been busy making this year………..

The first make of 2017 was a Molly Top in a chunky sweater knit:

Then I made these pattern weights and a draw string bag for my Secret Valentine Exchange gift. I also make a heart shawl in pink squishy mohair yarn.

More gift making followed.  Time for the #sewdowndewsbury goodie bag.

Lekala 5669 – I just love this! It is a top pattern but was really easy to make it into a skirt.

Another Molly Top.... I just love how versatile this pattern is and this wide striped striped ribbed knit is perfect for it.
