From Dog Beds to Wedding Gowns


I go from one order to another each day here at Stitchknit and the variety is my favorite part.  That, and learning new techniques along the way. But, some days are just odder than others……..and today, moving from the custom dog bed to the wedding gown make over, made me stop and ponder the types of projects I see here.

Switching gears and not having a need to finish every project works for me.  I squeeze in the fixes…..the alterations, in between the bigger projects needing additional fittings before I’m willing to move forward.

So, a day would look a bit scattered to most………..and absolutely productive and creative to me.  

Almost finished....denim on one side & fuzziness on the other.  Should be a happy dog!

Hemming the sleeves on a down jacket. Fortunately, no cutting required!

Finished the crochet cowl this AM, now just need to weave in the ends for pictures!

Sorry, no pictures of the wedding gown.  Still a secret from the groom.   Know that I’ve spliced in yards and yards of white silk and tulle, along with sequins, pearls and embroidered overlays…………all morning.  Everything wasn’t black, gray and tan in the studio!

  1. The dog bed definitely looks promising!

    I agree about mixing different projects together here and there. It makes it easy to come back to the project with fresh eyes, reassess what you want to do, and maybe make it even better than originally planned! Besides, it also helps starve off boredom and frustration in an unruly project! It’ll always be waiting there until you’re ready for it!

    And yey for cowls! The weather is going to get colder here in San Francisco and I need to start knitting and crocheting myself some new ones for the upcoming season..!

    • The dog bed to dog blanket project made my dog nuts! He was certain I had secreted a new dog into the studio! Project done, client happy and there was a scrap of fabric left over, so my dog has a new chew toy! He’s happy too!
