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.

 Let me see your sweater if you decide to make it!

Knit… Knit… Knit…


 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.
