A Cap for Juliana
When I did my last blogiversary giveaway, my friend Billie entered the giveaway and said that if she won the Denyse Schmidt fabric, she would make a cap for her granddaughter who has leukemia and is losing her hair. Juliana is just 5.
Well, of course I emailed her and said we would make a cap for the sweet little girl, regardless of whether she won the giveaway. So last night we got together and made this adorable little cap. It was made from a scrap of pink polka dot knit I had (which has already been a t-shirt and a baby sacque). The pattern was modified from Emma Hardy's book Making Children's Clothes and we added the double yo-yo flower from other scraps and buttons from my stash. We had so much fun! I haven't laughed so much in awhile. If it fits, I hope we'll make some more. It was a really quick project, and we both loved how it turned out!
I do need to replenish my button stash though. It is sadly lacking, and full of dark colors and uninspiring buttons. Time to give it a little attention I think.
Billie is a great photographer, and so I also got a lesson in using my new camera as she took the photo above. Very cool. I really need to take a class. Billie teaches photography, so I need to get my act together and sign up. I know I would learn a lot.
Meanwhile, please keep Juliana and her family in your prayers. I hope she makes a full and lasting recovery.
