Eva's new bikinis
These are Eva's bikinis. She's at the age when she is not a small girl anymore but still hasn't entered girlhood yet so it was hard finding a suitable swim suit for her.
She grew so much this year all swim gear she had is too small for her. We decided to make one.
I used her old bikini to make it. On the bottoms I added a ruffle at the front and adorned it with crocheted flowers. She wanted an array of all-sizes of Irish roses, but knowing how hard those dry I wasn't going to be persuaded.
I made this top for the "threw yourself in the sea to catch that ball" and other water jumping activities that may leave you embarrassed when you realize your top is missing! Those triangles can get a bit tricky!!
In a couple of days we'll be heading on the long-waited-for vacation. Preparations are under way and I am trying to keep the lists short although at times it seems difficult because we'll be away for three weeks and with children one has to be prepared for everything.
I am preparing crocheting tutes before I leave so come back to check them out!
