Maybe I was inspired by the Barbie castle I got for the nieces, or maybe it was the bottle of Tequila Dave opened, but whatever the reason, this weekend I felt compelled to design some Barbie clothes.
So I grabbed some leftover Wandering Cat Yarn and got to it. First, a little
blue dress in Slinky Cat. The Slinky makes for a nice study fabric when knit on 2mm needles and adds just a bit of shine - perfect for a night on the Barbie-town.
Then, because it can get a little chilly, I made a nice little Fluffy Cat cardi.
The Fluffy has a nice halo - just like a cozy angora sweater - so I knew it needed pearl buttons. The "buttons" are actually beads, and the cardi closes with snaps.
And finally, for those extra cool evenings, I knit a Top Cat tunic with seed stitch details.
I love how this one turned out, and I'm going to have to design a people sized one because I so want one!
I'll get around to creating and printing these patterns eventually - they are great for using up left over yarn.
