Alexis' gifts.

Now that they have arrived in the US, I can show you the things I made for my dear friend Dreama's newborn daughter, Alexis.

There is a one-piece baby kimono from Mason-Dixon Knitting and a nappy roll for speedy changes.

Some close-ups of the kimono....

I sewed a button on the inside right of the kimono to hold that corner across using the bottom eyelet as a buttonhole.

The ties are three stitches of garter picked up from the sides.

I received the yarn in a swap so all I know is that it is 8ply 100% wool. It was hand-dyed by the lovely Donna and I am sure you will agree that she did a lovely job.
