Baby cloth edging #3

This edging is worked by a thicker thread and a bigger hook.
The pattern is actually a picot bt aftr doin the 1st round ,
i felt just that was better and din quite like the luk of picot.
SO stopped with the first round. I saw this pattern while searchin in google.
don remmbr frm wre i gt this exactly.

Neways heres the pattern:

Row 1: In 4th ch from hook make dc, ch 2, dc * skip ch, in next ch make dc, ch 2, dc. Repeat from * to end. Ch 3, turn.

Row 2: * 4 sc in ch 2 space, picot. Repeat from * to end. Fasten off

Bt i did just the first rnd.
And added the yellow satin thru the blanket stitches!

Baby cloth edging #2

This is the second cloth edging....worked wit a multicolour

Thread :size 10
Hook :size 4.
Pattern : SC around, Then in 1st SC * {(make 1 TRC,1 Ch )6 times,1 TRC, skip 2 sc make sc in 3rd sc}*. repeat from * to * throughout.slipstich to join.

If u guys remember, the thread is the same as this DOILY which i had been making.
Then i gt bored with the doily, and pulled bak the thread....and used it for this edging...had to buy an extra roll for this tho..
I realize how easy it is to pull the thread and squander all the tedious work done.. guess tat is the difference b/w make and break.....takes a second to let go, while it takes hours or years to make it!..be it crochet or anythin!
hmm...crochet is makin me wiser ..hee hee...and teaching me patience too!!!

Baby cloth edging #1

Had kept a couple of baby cloths ready and given it for sewing the sides...now tat i gt them bak , i was thiking of adding crochet edgings to each of them....donno how many i wud be able to complete as the time is less....bt this ones my first edging .Its just double crochet across the cloth , and i just added a satin ribbon in bet the hemstitches for a dressy and a more neat luk.

Have used THIS technique of Teresa to add the edging to the fabric....its a bit of a tedious work i feel.....
am working on the next baby cloth, ..wil post it soon

Small Sandals for the tiny one!

I did this from the same book of Lesley's. Really luv the luk of these sandals....Vry chic!
This wud fit a baby of 6-9 months i guess...
I used two cotton threads together (green n yellow), and did the edging with the single thread(green).I finally learned te crab stitch online n did it for te edging.

Sea boot bootees all set to wear!

This socks is something which after finishing , gave me a great great sense of achievement...tats becoz i hv tried almost 1 whole week trying to figure out the pattern instructions.....
finally i discovered the secret....the designer kept on writing double crochet but what she meant was attually a single crochet!!!!! phew.....wasnt tat a discovery!
i guess in sm parts of the world, yrh is not done bfor inserting thru the stitch....i hv seen couple of video instructions lik tat for dc bfore too..
anyways in te beginning of the book she had clearly shown what she meant by dc, just tat i missed reading tat.....

Neways, i now have a matching bootees for my sweater!!

this pattern is from the book i got--"Adorable crochet for babies and toddlers" by Lesley Stanfield
The paaterns in this range from simple to the more ambitious
