Boy, am I bad at follow through! This is the first gift that I had finished for my pay it forward gifts....in February! It's now May in case you haven't checked a calendar lately. Good thing Ruth is such a patient friend...and she didn't know what I was making for her anyway, so she couldn't be missing what she didn't know she was getting!
Originally I was only going to make Ruth one thing...but she's so fun to make things for, that I added three more things to the pile!
Gift #1: Crocheted tea cozy. I think the pattern ends up being a smaller tea cozy...but I don't know how to read crochet patterns, and there's only so far YouTube can take you. The lady I would have called for help and advice lives in Heaven now, so I ad libbed...and ended up with a REALLY BIG tea cozy. Ruth's poor teapot...it looks like it's hiding!
I then made her girls pillowcase dresses (my new obsession). Aren't they just the cutest?
