Last Weekends Projects
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.
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.
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.
