Knit it, Violet!
Finished objects, works in progress, and lots of rambling about two sticks and some string...

  Built by Violet
Proof I'm not a one-craft wonder:

Pattern: Built by Wendy/Simplicity 3835 Fabric: Pink Astral Skulls by Alexander Henry, purchased at my local Joann's.
This top was super easy to sew, but cutting it out was a pain in the, well, wrist, back, neck, etc. That was my fault, though, because I'm fairly sure I only bought enough fabric for a size smaller than I actually am/made, and my "cutting table" is my floor.
I think it's a great top for summer, but because it's 100% cotton, I'll definitely have to make friends with my iron. And can I just say I'm in love with Alexander Henry fabric? Skulls, loteria, Sailor Jerry-type tattoo prints? Love!

Okay, knitting will resume shortly, I promise!

Cute, cute, cute!! I woke up this morning & was already set to sew one of these up. Yours just clinches it!!

I love the fabric you chose!! That is the one thing I have yet to decide on... hmmmm! ;)
That top is adorable! The fabric is amazing, who knew you could get that at JoAnn?
