Summer Blue

Yet, one more Anthropologie inspired creation. This time the Mill Pond Blouse was my victim. The original has a beautiful embroidery. Instead I have painted flowers using hand made stencils and fabric paint. For anyone interested in fabric painting I have used Folk Art paint. The blouse has been hand washed once in warm water and the paint didn’t bleed or fainted. I recommend it as a fast way to embelish your creations. Fabric- very soft cotton. I didn’t use a pattern.

Bubble Top

The bottom layer is a cotton tank top made out of a t-shirt because I couldn’t find the right color jersey to match the top silk chiffon layer. I added a simple applique to dress it up a little. I didn’t use any pattern, just played with the fabrics.

Cardigan Pattern

Here is the chart pattern for the Anthropology inspired cardigan. I scanned my original chart and put it in a Word format, I hope it is clear enough.

 Anthropologie inspired cardigan. It is not exactly like the original, but after one total ripping of the front I lost my patience and left it like this.

It would be a quick project on the Bond machine if I had a pattern. I find it harder to knit without patterns on Bond than by hand. It’s just hard to in-vision the whole piece when it is pulled in every direction by the machine. You don’t know what you’ll get until you take it off the needles ( I love my Bond anyway).

On a different note. My little fighter, Cicia.

And my next knitting project;  dress form Vogue Knitting Winter 2007. It’s almost spring, but I just got the magazine couple days ago and love everything in it! If time allows I will make few of them, especially the over-sized sweaters.
