|It has been a whirlwind few months. I have been sewing and going! Had a great milestone birthday party in April and decided to sew the 30 gift bags for my guests. What was I thinking? I used the tutorial from all people quilt (http://www.allpeoplequilt.com/projects-ideas/bags-pillows/small-treat-tote_1.html) and used mostly scrap fabric. I also increased the size to 7 1/2 x 8 1/2 I couldn't resist going out and getting some fabric! I guess it is obvious I haven't succeeded in using my stash only--but, I am getting better...a little. This is not the best picture of the bags, but you can get the idea! I have one or 2 left that I may retake a picture of.|
|Made a cute button down shirt for my grandson. I hadn't seen him in a while, and he is already a little big for this shirt. They grow way too fast! The fabric has the "Cars" motif. He is really into Lightning McQueen!|
The Spring 2013 SewStylish magazine had the cutest peplum top on the cover so I ran out and bought the pattern, Simplicity 1699. I was really happy with the top, so I made the dress also. Both were quick and easy! I am going to work on a varsity jacket for my granddaughter. that should keep me busy all summer, maybe I will post it on this blog.
