26 Being Slick

Prep for Easter was happening today, along with us going out to an Easter egg hunt this afternoon. In other words, family fun time with the “Easter Bunny”.

I did craft today, I put the finishing touches on NewLittleMan’s TNBC hat for his gift set.

The hat was started and finished in one evening but today I did the eyes up, attached them, and then stitched on his mouth. The eyes were surprisingly fun to do. The only tutorials I could find for tear drop or rain drop shapes were in foreign languages (picture tutorials). I had to wing it, I think they came out pretty good and I didn’t get frustrated by my lack of pattern which was very nice. I’m going to thank the Easter Bunny Spirit for that, his jelly beans must have given me a bit of extra patience. 😉 Thank you EB.

I have started on the jacket and can hardly wait to see NewLittleMan in his ensemble.

A Nice Nineteen

There is a fan page for The Nightmare Before Christmas on FB that I follow. Not too long ago they posted a picture of a crocheted baby suit made to honor Mr Jack Skellington himself. I scoured the internet in search of the pattern to purchase, because naturally I must have such a thing and make it for babies of my life. Yes MUST!

I found the picture that had been shared as a listing on etsy!! Yay!

No pattern for it sadly, just the item itself. But hell, that is awesome too! I want to make one though so I am just going to have to do it myself. I’m sure it won’t be as amazing as this person’s creation but I’m going to give it my best shot. I started with the diaper cover. I’ve made these before so I didn’t have much trouble with making up this part of the pattern. It isn’t finished. My plan is to add the white pin stripes Jack has via DMC floss. However I don’t currently have any, nor do I have buttons. I do like that her pattern overlaps the waste, there is no size on the listing and I want to make a 3-6m size. I decided to make mine with non-overlapped waste. I’ll need extra buttons, especially because I have zero of the same size black or white buttons big enough for this diaper cover.

I will be making two of the same set. One going to the same little man, NewLittleMan, that received the Eagle Sleeping Cocoon. The other will be going to an ex-coworker of mine, T’s NewLittleOne. I shared the picture on Facebook and asked who wanted one and they both said they did…ask and you shall receive! lol

Here’s my progress so far:

I’ll be making both sets at the same time so tonight I’ll be getting the second diaper cover done. Both families know about the gift so I have no problem sharing.
