Last Weekends Projects

March 25, 2011

It just seems that my weeks keep getting away from me, I can’t believe it’s Friday already.  I took these pictures last friday, amazingly before I wrapped them up for the baby shower.  But then I started washing all my fabric, and we went to InstaCare again, and I made a March Madness dress for Creamie and I kind of got sidetracked.  So here they are.  I’m going to link them up to Sew&Tell at Amy’s.

summer dress

First up I made this little sundress for my cousins soon to be born baby girl.  For the dress I just kind of winged it… It’s really only three rectangles sewn together and some elastic thread magic. Easy Peasy. For the matching bloomers I used this tutorial, but next time I make them I will definietly be making changes.  They are about 3 inches too wide in the crotch and about an inch and a half not tall enough in the rise.  But it was a good learning experience.  I love how the dress turned out.  And I really like putting a big wide strip of trim along the bottom.  It’s also my secret for adding length to make the dress last another year.

little men

This little onesie (yeah, I’ve made a few of these so far!) is for another cousin who is having another child after 12 years of waiting.  I couldn’t be more excited for this little guy to get here.  And I am sure he will be the handsomest little guy in his stripey tie and suspenders. (Pattern from here)  I have a few more little baby dresses and shirts to work on this weekend.  And I should really just make a bunch and stock up.  Because in my life January and February babies always get the shaft.  I am worn out with Christmas sewing and never get myself put together enough to have something ready to go.  I am also working on a big secret commissioned Easter project that is turning out to be pretty awesome.  Have a good weekend, I’ll be spending it at the sewing machine.  Which will be awesome.

    So cute! I love the little sundress, and I’m all about adding that band on the bottom, thanks to you. 🙂

    I’m so glad that you’re sewing again–at least one of us is. I’m not allowing myself to sew until we’re all unpacked here. *sigh*

    So funny. I just bought the same fabric (as the bloomers) to make a baby gift. The gifts look great! What is magic elastic thread? You’ll have to teach me that trick!

    I hope both you and Creamie are feeling better. You have had a rough start to 2011. I’ve been meaning to write you to let you know you’ve been in my thoughts. I love to see that a truckload of illnesses can’t keep you away from your sewing machine!

    love the dress! i have had a spool of elastic thread for about 5 years now and haven’t used it. you have inspired me to find out how it really works. your choice in coordinates is adorable, too.
    too bad that onesie is hilarious.
