Kitten for R. for Valentine's

I made another white kitty for R. This time I used a pattern from "super-cute Crochet" by Nicki Trench. It was super-adorable. I used a cotton yarn for the body and an acrylic for the dress. Felt nose, wool whiskers, thread mouth, plastic or rubber button for flower in ear.

Doggie sweater, matching human beret

For a friend with a cold chihuahua. :)

I knitted the doggie sweater, making it up as I went along from measurements taken by my friend. The buttons are oversize and along the underside (belly side) of the sweater, the collar is attached at the back of the neck in a contrasting color.

I crocheted the beret from a Bernat pattern in the same colors as the doggie sweater.

I hope to have pictures of them being used, I hope they both fit the respective recipients.

Jammies part 2 and 3

I made Julian some space pjs like the Scooby ones, except I took a premade t-shirt and appliqued some of the space images cut out from the fabric used for the bottoms. It came out pretty cute, and I made some for myself too with a cute cat flannel.
