Zoey's Sweater

I made my Grand daughter Zoey 
a little Shrug style sweater.
It seems that everything is short sleeved, 

So she needed a little sweater.
White yarn is so hard to photograph.

I used Red heart pearl baby yarn.

The pattern Can be found at this link:

This is not my pattern, But its a really 
easy pattern to follow.

I shortened the body,
 as well as, the sleeves.
I also added the shell stitches 
on the yoke.

Making Labels

I decided to make Cloth labels for my items.
I did a little investigating 
and experimenting,
And this is what I came up with.
The Fabric is Blue with  blue paw prints.
I wanted it a colored fabric, because 
I wanted to print in Black.
All I wanted on the label,
is my webpage and then this pic, 
of the Chihuahuas, 
which is on everything.

This is what I did.
I bought  inkjet iron transfer paper.
Then make a template of what I wanted.
Be sure to print in the mirror image, 
or it will all be backwards!

 I printed it,
 ironed it,
 and cut it with pinking shears.....
And I love it!
Super Easy!
Oh, I got 48 labels on 1 sheet.
Oh, it is a sew on label, which I prefer.
