Sweet Sunday Knitting

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC141.

I'm showcasing another of the new à la modes from MFT, à la mode - Knit Happens. I'm not a knitter, but I just love this sweet image with her warm toque.

As you can see, I flipped the sketch. The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with copic markers. Her sweater is paper pieced with one of the patterns from the Jillibean Soup Christmas Eve Chowder mini pad.

I cheated the sketch just a little by using the ticket tab die-namic in the top left corner instead of a rectangle of card stock, then I just couldn't get that little scallop piece at the bottom to look right unless I ran it right across the card. I used the small scallop border die-namic to cut out the green piece and added a lush red felt flower which I created with the new Loopy Bloom die-namic.

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's blog. I'm the other Sweet Sunday Stampers followed the sketch a little more closely than I did so why don't we hop around and find out!

Thank you, thank you, thank you...you modified the sketch and it looks so great! Not that the sketch wasn't great to start with but you see I always feel like you have to follow it exactly..I'm so type A. But your ingenuity and craftiness shows us that it's a roadmap and we can freely make it our own. That paper pieced Holiday fleece looks fantastic! I actually know a few girlies that would love for me to pick one up for them. And seriously, the red felt pom pom (flower) is perfect!
