I need to make a small piece that shows off my finishing skills. But, I have no idea what to make. I'm thinking a *small* sweater, but I'm not sure. Any ideas???

What type of 'finishing' skills...seaming or adding different edges to objects? If seaming, I would say a quick top...and I pm'ed u

I'd say both! TY! Trying to find top patterns in miniature...really don't have time for a life size garment right now!

You could make a teddy bear sweater- that was the first thing that I tried to make. You could do ribbing, a neckline, and seaming. Just small!!

That's what I thought of--doll clothes. There are American Girl patterns--you can also make a dog sweater or something.
