My step-granddaughter's birthday party was this past weekend. I had several things in progress for her, but none of them were close to completion. So, I went searching online for some quick-knit ideas.

I came up with a couple things, and took everything I would need to make them with me on vacation in the mountains.

First, I made these little slippers, using Lion Wool-ease Thick & Quick.

They only took about 30 minutes to make. :thumbsup:
Here's the free pattern: http://blog.innerchildcrochet.com/?p=319

Next, I got to work on the bodice for a little sundress. When I finished the bodice, I cut fabric for a skirt, and sewed it on by hand. (I didn't want to take my sewing machine all the way to the mountains.) :teehee: I was still doing the hem and adding a butterfly patch as we drove to the party on the way back home from the mountains.

It turned out nice! :wink:

Quick and easy. :)

I love that pattern. It is such a quick knit and so easy to make. Plus, cheap- I use Peaches and Cream and buy calico fabric and ribbon at Hobby Lobby for next to nothing. I have already made four of them, and I have 3 friends that are expecting twins. So I guess, if they all have girls, I'll be making 6 more of them.

Yours looks great! Love the idea of making the slippers to go with them.
