Hello Kitty has her day!
My oldest sister is a Hello Kitty junkie so I have a hard time passing by anything Hello Kitty or Sanrio. I was going for a large project bag with the Halloween Hello Kitty fabric. It came out very large. I adore the fabric.
The little zipper bags are a bit of a pain to make as they zipper is sewn in by hand. I found some great little charms at the not so-99 cents store and the recent trade show.
brella has some free Totoro patterns on Ravelry and this is her little chibi Totoro. I love his bobble tail. Normally I avoid bobbles as they just seem redundant, but this is a giant bobble and is really quite cute. He is Beaverslide natural, knit with size 4 needles.
February Lady has not budged for awhile. Montego seasilk scarf has been frogged and is trying to become Ysolda's Damson, but definitely not on size 5 needles.
The final day of Shibori was really fun. I got to talk to blogless Doris who has taken the class many times and had some great samples. She disappeared before I whipped my camera out, but I hope to see her again. This time I got the long kim chee making gloves from Palama Market and my fingers were in pretty good shape, but my feet are still blue.
