Ever since I recieved the really cool hello kitty buttons from my swap partner I was determined to use them in a special project. When I found the pattern for the slipper socks I knew the butttons would look great on them and now I have finished them I think I was right! :)
Im really pleased with them!
Instead of a white border I just went with the blue to blend in but added one of my white heart appliques to the front of each foot for decoration intead.
At first the straps were a bit too big but I stitched a bit of them in a loop inside and now they fit perfectly :D
And they are all ready for me to wear on my holiday in Ipswich ( I leave tomorrow! :) Now my feet will be nice and snug as I relax and watch telly :3
Another project I finished recently (well actually started and finished in one night) was this little apple cozy:
The pattern was in this months Issue of Knit Today magazine and I couldnt resist casting on when I saw it!
I bought a pack of the sunflower buttons when I was in Japan which Im really pleased about now as it was the perfect finishing touch. I love it when you've got just the perfect button for the job :) I also added a stalk (by casting on 2sts and knitting a few rows in Gst) to make it look just that bit more realistic.
See you later, au revoir!
P.s I am nearly finished making the finishing touches to the second free pattern so it will be up soon!
P.p.s Dont forgt to enter the giveaway for the little heart appliques!!!
