....I told you I was back!!! (this is what happens when you give little kids access to the phone on your camera)

When we were on vacation, we had the pleasure of babysitting these two little munchkins for a couple afternoons. We call them our "surrogate" grandchildren as they are not directly related to us but we love them just as much as if they were.

It's much easier for me to make things for little girls than little boys, so I was able to spoil our blonde cutie pie with some Barbie fashions. (not to worry, our little guy was spoiled too) A couple of outfits I made before leaving on vacation, one while in the car driving to vacation (so I wouldn't be a NAG-a-vator) and the remainder while on vacation.
This first one was supposed to be a top, but ended up being a wrap around dress.

This picture was supposed to show off the mini-sweater and matching hat.

This is the dress that was underneath it...

Here is Barbie getting ready for a little sunbathing by the pool (aka bird bath).

And here she is showing off her awarding winning squash which was almost as tall as ribbon material for sure!

All these patterns were found online by just googling crochet Barbie clothes. They were fun and quick to do.

So, on that note......I'll be on my way....till next time, yinz crazy guys!
