Countdown: 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, THREE!

I'm still here! I just couldn't blog without having some kind of FO to show you...
Maternity dress
This is Simplicity 5756, a super easy pattern. I can't really tell you which "view" I made, since I made the short sleeves from the shirt pattern, but followed the directions for the dress. I used a modern flower print from Purl. I finished this dress just in time to wear to what turned out to be a surprise baby shower!
I also finally made the second baby bootie.
Baby booties
This is a very clever pattern: it's knit from the sole up (I started with a magic 8 cast on), and it's done all in the round. I must admit that the translation (from german) was very confusing, but as you can see, I figured it out!
And, last but not least, I finally cut out the pieces for my diaper bag!
Diaper bag!
I'm basing it on the Amy Butler "Everything Bag" from her "Little Stitches" book. I had the idea to make a bag that was a hybrid of the Weekender bag and the Everything bag, but then I saw Fancie Pants Knits' version of the Everything bag... Well, it's so cute, I settled on making the Everything, with a zippered top!
