Mostly I've been swamped with helping sew costumes for the play my kids are in. And received a new batch of stuff to work on tonight.
All that sewing means my machine is perpetually set up and ready, and this weekend I was puttering with a few projects of my own :)
First, I'm working on a couple of aprons for my little girls, for Valentine's Day. I'm going to pair them with some felt cookies and a mini-baking pan. I'm using this McCalls pattern and it promises to be very cute!!
Here is one I made for my neice's daughter for Xmas (my daughter trying it on):
Miss A was sad to have to give it away, but she will be surprised on Valentine's Day! I'm making the ruffled version for both her and Miss M.
Here's the work in progress: (Sorry, can't get the picture to rotate for some reason tonight! Dana?????)
And today I did just that! It turned out SO. CUTE. If I do say so myself. Lovely fit, lovely pattern, and Amy Butler fabric. Can you tell I've used two different fabrics from the same collection? The panels are layered over each other, and once you wash it, it will get that frayed-edge look. Its bright and pretty and will be perfect for the hot place I'm going to in March :). I made my skirt a bit shorter than the pattern.
I picture this with a cute tank top in the same rust color as I'm wearing.
Equally sweet with a white twin-set or T-shirt.
Maybe some little skirts to match for the girls??
So there. That's what's on the sanity shelf! Hope you enjoyed!
