Gardening...

Been working in the garden lately...no sewing. I just joined the sewing mamas congo, so I need to get busy sewing some things for that soon...

Two dresses that are too big.

Same pattern for both of these. I forgot that the pattern I traced was too big for her, but it's OK. I'll just put them back for this fall.
First is my favorite bunny fabric with the pattern slightly modified. I think this is her 4th outfit with this fabric, so it's quite obvious that I love it!


The second one with no modifications. I really love this style of dress...too bad I keep making it too big for her to wear right now. This is now the 3rd dress I've had to put back for later. Better than being too small, so I can't really complain.








Raglans and stripes

I finally got around to sewing up some raglans for the twins. I just used some cheap camo knit that is rather faded, but I love the pattern and will definitely be making more of these for my boys.

My pretty girl. :)

I made her black shirt a long time ago, but the pants are new. She's growing like a weed and needed some longer pants to get her through the rest of our cooler weather.

Capri Set

This will be Lindsey's gardening outfit. I made many, many stupid mistakes while making this, so it's really only suitable to wear while getting dirty in the back yard. That, along with the fact that I made curtains and placemats for my kitchen/breakfast nook with this same fabric... Hey, I bought a bolt of each and need to use it up! I really do like the look of this outfit (I made her two similar sets last summer) and I'm sure I'll make her at least one more for this year.

Finally in the mood to sew again!

I have several things finished, but my precious little model is in bed. I did manage to take this "model" shot tonight before turning off her lights. I made my precious girl a big girl pillow case for her new big girl bed! Care Bears flannel...so soft and comfy and she adores it!

I'll have more pictures to share really soon...and I promise they'll be more exciting than a pillow case! Take care.
