Lana dressed up as a tomato to celebrate her very first Halloween! Cutest bitty baby costume ever? I think so!
I had sent a photo of an adorable tomato hat to my pro-knitter friend, Sherga, months ago. I thought it was cute and would make her smile. But what does she do? She goes and makes one for Lana! Isn't it amazing?! And she thought it was beyond her skill level. HA! I must say, the color looks a little familiar...I wonder if she used the yarn I passed on to her, since I had no plans of ever finishing a knitting project (despite her best efforts to teach me how!)?
Abby delivered the hat when she came to visit a couple weeks ago. I've been saving it for Halloween, knowing I wouldn't be come up with a costume any cuter than a tomato! To complete the look, I used some Rit dye to turn one of her little white onesies red. It was a pretty simple process, but the color turns out quite a bit lighter when the process is finished than it looks when sitting in the dye bath.
One of our neighbors thought Lana was a pumpkin. That's cool too. If I add a little antique effect, she definitely looks like one!
Kicking it with the neighbors pumpkins...
Are we done yet? I'm bored.
Seriously, parents! Are we done yet?!
Nevermind, I'm over it.
Thank you, Sherga, for the awesomest handmade gift ever! Lana loves it, and so do we!
