Panties for my Potty-Trainer

Yes, I make my daughter's panties. I get a lot of strange looks when people find out...along with the question, "Why?" But, I can use up all of my knit scraps making them which means they cost me almost nil and they fit so much better than the store bought ones she has...and I enjoy sewing! So, I don't mind the strange looks and answering the question, "Why?" The first pair I made back in August to try out the pattern (Ottobre 04/04). The next 4 I did today because my almost-two-year-old has decided she's ready to be a big girl (sniff, sniff).

Little Corduroy Zippered Bag

Truth be known, this was supposed to be a wristlet, but I forgot to sew the strap on it. OOPS! This was part of my niece's birthday present and she seemed to like it.

Just a cute picture of my darling Lindsey...

Lindsey outside during our first snow of the season. She thought the snow was great! This snow didn't last long, but we're looking forward to it snowing more this year...we love snow!

King Cobra

I finally got the king cobra embroidered on this shirt. I've had the shirt done for quite a few weeks and it's just been sitting on the chair waiting for it's embroidery. Size 14 boys...looks so big compared to the little clothes I make Miss Lindsey. My oldest really likes it and has asked that I lay it out for him to wear to school tomorrow. I've also got "orders" for two more...yes, the twins have both requested king cobra shirts, too! I'm so glad they like what I sew for them!!!

Butterfly Zippered Wristlet

This has been on my "To Do" list for months and I finally got around to doing it!! I've made two of these for gifts for my nieces for Christmas. I think they turned out really cute and I can't wait to go get some more zippers so I can make up a few more!

Fabric Baskets

Sweet, little fabric baskets!

Here are a couple of fabric baskets I've done this week. Pretty quick to do, but sewing the squares is a bit much for me...I'm not a quilter! I just don't have the patience to sew up the patchwork part, so I'm thinking about doing the next ones a bit different and avoid all those little squares. I'm planning on filling them with Christmas goodies and giving them as gifts!

Hooray! I can cross a couple things off my list!

Well, I wanted to make some things this week from my "To Do List" below and I've actually accomplished it! Hooray for me!
Another cloth book for Miss Lindsey for Christmas. She loves books and this one is really sweet with all it's nursery rhymes.

Next is a purse! This is only the second purse I've made and I think it turned out well. I've got a few more purse patterns I'd like to try soon! This one is made in my two most favorite colors...green and brown. Perfect size for me to toss in my wallet, keys, phone and a couple of Lindsey's necessities.

Take care!
