I've been sewing like a crazy person and finishing things up or making good progress on several projects but we were out of town on the days I usually have time to blog. So now I get to do a photo dump and tell you all the awesome things I've been working on for the last two weeks. I'm linking up with WiP Wednesday.
So that's everything. Now that spring break is over and I've kicked the strep throat in the butt (for the third time in as many months) I should be back to my normal blogging/sewing schedule and you'd probably won't be blessed with such long and all encompassing posts. As always thanks for stopping by!
|So this picture comes with a question. The picture in the bottom right was posted with my first quarter FAL goal (post here). I wanted to make my oldest boy some lounge pants with this awesome fabric. Well, as it turns out this remnant that I bought was cut horribly crooked and there wasn't enough. So I made a pillow case out of it then bought some new yardage of fabric to make the pants. So the question is.... should this still count as a finish for the linkup? I think I'm going to since I used the original fabric and I made a pair of pants. It's like I finished it and a bonus.|
|Once he got some pants everyone else wanted to join in and get some too. I couldn't resist. Here they are all together.|
|First off - isn't my munchkin adorable?! I love her modeling skills. These pants are actually a pattern I tested for the lovely Jenilyn over at Grits and Giggles. I don't typically sew clothes but I just love her patterns! They are so simple and well written that even someone uncomfortable with 3D objects, as I am, can make them with ease. I highly recommend these pants. You can find the pattern here.|
|Here's my little guy in his pants. His obsession with all things orange and firefighters carried over into yet another creation. That two pillowcases, pajamas, a zippy pouch, and two quilts so far.|
|Next up we have a crochet baby cabbage patch hat I made for a friend's baby shower. I adore these hats! They are so cute on too. She asked for it in newborn size and she is going to have her week-old baby wear it in her pictures. I can't wait to see them! If you like the hat you can buy one of your own here.|
|I had another friend due one day before the last one and she asked for this adorable owl hat for her tiny baby. So cute!! I love the big eyes and the braided tails of this one. You can find it here.|
|So two weeks ago I made some stuffed animals for my middle kids. This week we finally got around to making the two for the oldest. They even sewed them up with minimal help from me! I'm so proud of their budding skills! Their animals look so cute and they sure love them.|
|I saved the best stuff for last! I just love how this top turned out! It just flew together too. I stalled out on this one a couple of weeks ago when a couple of custom orders came in to the shop. It's my March ALYoF goal and on my 2014Q1FAL list so I figured I'd better get back to it and finish it up before the month is over! Now just to baste quilt and bind.|
|I couldn't resist an artsy one of the top. I really do love how this one came together. I can't wait to get to quilting it, hopefully tomorrow.|
