Knitted scarves

Here are 2 scarves I made. The first one with the horizontal stripes I just finished last night. It is knitted with Fantasy Naturale Yarn which is 100% cotton. It is to be donated to the Knitz 4 Vetz sponsored by The Knit With store in Pennsylvania. The second scarf is knitted using the mistake rib pattern. I believe I used mostly Vanna's Choice Yarn and Michael's Impeccable Yarn. One reason for this scarf is to use up leftover bits of yarn and the other reason for making this scarf is because I thought it would look nice.

Swimming Hole costume

This is for a tap dance. The song they are dancing to is "Swimming Hole." The straps are tied in bows at the shoulders. It is hard to tie them when the child is not wearing it. The other large bow is for the back of the head. It will be attached to a hair clip or barrette.

You Are My Sunshine costume

This costume is for a ballet dance. They are dancing to "You Are My Sunshine." The headpiece is a ruffle across the top of the head with sequin braid down the center of the ruffle. It is glued onto a headband so it can quickly be put on.

Yellow Polka Dot costume

This is the first costume finished for this year's dancing revue. This is for a tap dance. They are dancing to "Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini." I couldn't find yellow satin with polka dots so I made my own polka dots out of black satin and ironed them on. The yellow dots have interfacing ironed onto the back so they won't ravel and they won't be too flimsy.
