Needlework Update - August, 2013

Good morning,

August has been a very busy month!  We have been on the road and are back on the high seas again.  I have been very happy to fill several custom orders. 

My 18" doll, Ginger, needed a new outfit for back to school, too, so I made her a poncho, skirt, and hat set. 
 The second outfit above and the next three are items I made awhile ago, but had not yet photographed to add to our on line shop.
 I took advantage of the beautiful Cincinnati weather this month and photographed Ginger modeling these outfits.
 I really like this cardigan sweater.  I wrote the pattern down when I made it so I can make it again.
This skirt, cape, and cap outfit is for our Early American little girl who is going with her Mom to a high society luncheon party.  It is made with both knit and crochet techniques.  They fit American Girl and other 18" dolls.

All of these outfits are my original designs.  At this writing, the outfits are available for sale in our on line Etsy Shop EvensensProductions.com
Also new in the shop this month are two more chemo caps to restock those that have been sold.  Above is a chemo cap in a blue wool blend.
This cap is in grey easy care acrylic.

Click on any image to see more about that item.

What have you been making this month?  I so enjoy seeing all of your knit, crochet, sewing, and other projects.

We now return to our regularly scheduled blogging.  ;)

All the very best,
Lois

These are so cute...seems like I am at a standstill in sewing. But I spent some time with my fabric today! And even sewed one seam...so maybe I will get busy soon.
