My sister-in-laws birthday was last month and she loves anything pink and comfy.
So, this is what I made her!
It shirt came from Simplicity pattern 8262 (can't find a link for it anywhere!)
The pants came from some random pj bottom pattern I had laying around.
It went together fairly easy except for the collar. This is my second attempt with this pattern and both times I've had issues with the collar. 3rd times a charm? hope so. But not for a while...
I love love LOVE every bag in this book. So I couldn't resist joining in my first sew along to make sure I get around to making each one! And instead of joining one, I joined 2 (its the same sew along, just different people to keep me interested and motivated)
So this month is the Cosmo Bag. A big bag, but with 2 kids - I'm sure I'll put it to good use!
I struggled through the first part - picking out the fabric...
Fabric is Calico Dark Aqua Geo Leaves
The fabric is called Carousel Floral. This is going to be the main fabric of the bag.
Its soo pretty and makes me smile just looking at it. Can't wait to have it on my bag!
This fabric is Calico Fabric Heartstrings Sketch Stripe Purple
Now I need to decide which will be the accent fabric and which will be the interior. I can't decide!
Ok, so I fell off the blog wagon for a while..but it was the holiday season and I did alot..does that count for anything? fine...
So here's some things I've been working on:
Old MacDonald Puppets: (tutorial can be found here)
Pig - he's actually pink :) I'm a horrible photographer
24 total puppets for gifts and favors!
They were really easy to make. The most time consuming (and tedious!) thing was cutting all the pieces. But I'm pretty happy with how they came out. But I won't be making any more for a very long time!
