Here's my business the last two weeks.
I've been getting some sewing in and have a little something to show for it.
The fabric was a gift from a friend over a year ago. I've used it in an outfit for my daughter--both on a pair of pants and a shirt. And, I still have a tiny bit left!
I have no idea where it comes from or what it is called but it is super cute!
I've added a size tag, sewn onto the back lining so the new moms will know when to pull it out.
Instead of piping, I used rick-rack. First time using it other than the hats I made for my boys during KCW.
I really like this pattern--it's quick and easy and it is cute.
Next, I made (yes, you're right, you're seeing double) two sets of matching boys clothes.
The T-shirts are from Small Dream Factory. It is their free Envelope Neck Long Sleeve pattern which comes in sizes NB-2T.
The fabric is a combed cotton interlock in kelly green and in brown or chocolate (I cannot remember). I bought them when I first started sewing almost 3 years ago from Fabric.com.
And, I have used it for a number of projects before, including two shirts last year for my older boys, and another shirt that was made before my blogging days.
Again, I put in tags with the size. I forgot for the shirts, but hopefully they'll stay together as a set, or I'll have to sew a little tag on them yet somehow.
Fabric is some twill that I got from a 2nd-hand store a couple years ago. I managed to squeeze these two out of the left-over fabric. I had used the rest before for some other pants, but I don't think I have blogged about those--it was before my blogging days as well.
So, I've added these to the Flickr group.
I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else will be sewing up!
I have a little stack of patterns on my desk that I'll be working on next--one of them being the Sweet Dress from Leila and Ben.
And, have you read my last post to learn how to get one of their patterns for free?
