We are the happy grandparents of 5 (Second Son just announced that #6 is on the way). I may not always be able to give them a grandma-made-it-Christmas, but at least this year that is the plan. Here is the first finished item: A fairy dress with matching baby doll skirt for Twin V, who is 3-1/2 years old.
The bodice is made of a 6″ stretch crochet tube purchased at Joanns. Other than that it is all hand-me-down fabric and leftovers.
The results are so fun and happy! I just wish she were here to model it. Ah, Christmas comes slowly for children and eager grandmothers.
