Work-in-Progress Wednesday 17


My brother is getting married in a few months and the kids are getting to play special roles on the big day.  I found really cute dresses for the girls, but they are both sleeveless.  I don't think that is going to work, especially given our late Winter this year, in early April.  So, I figured that instead of trying to find them sweaters, I would make them instead.  This is the start of EJ's shrug (I made it as written in the pattern and it's a perfect fit).  It still needs edging and more sleeves, bit this is the basic shape.  I did it in cotton (which just happened to be on sale) and the cost for the entire shrug will be under $2!  It's a quick pattern too, so next week I'll move on to Liv's wedding sweater

Joining up with Yarn Along at Small Things & WIP Wednesday at Tami's Amis.

The shrug is lovely! I think it will be perfect for a wedding.

Beautiful shrug! Thanks for sharing.

Lovely shrug :)

One of the things I love about being a crafter is being able to make something to fill a need, rather than buy it. Of course, it helps when you have such a cute and quick pattern to use, like this :)

Very pretty, and looks adorable on her. Don't you love getting such a good bargain!

One of the additional benefits is how excited the kids are to wear the stuff you make. I'm sure it will change in later years but let's enjoy it while we can!
