Double Leaf Lace Toddler Cardi

I found this yarn at a thrift shop for $4.50 and for a 60% Alpaca blend yarn, that's like hitting the jackpot.

I used a free basic cardi pattern and knit a lace insertion at the center back.  It turned out exactly how I'd hoped it would.

I later found a vintage cotton sheet at another thrift store and paid a dollar for it.  When I got home I found that it was a perfect compliment to the cardi, so I made the little sleeveless dress.  My sister and I are now anxiously awaiting for someone to have a baby girl to put this outfit on!

Just look what you can get out of $5.50!  Thrift shops forever!
