Sewing


I love to sew. For anyone who doesn't know me I have 2 passions in my life. Okay, I guess 3.
1. My Children
2. Photography
3. Sewing

I wish that being organized was on that list .... hee hee


So This is what I have been sewing the past few days. I made these nifty potholders / hot pads Cute right. Well, I think they look bright and happy in my yellow kitchen. Very retro looking.



then I also have been making these little clutch type diaper and wipes case that you can just throw into your purse or backpack when you don't want a huge diaper bag. I also made a changing pad that folds up and goes right behind the clutch.






And finally I have made a couple things for Maddie. I pinafore, a dress inspired by lil blue boo and this robe. Do you know how hard it is to find a robe for a toddler??? So Since I am Cheap
(i mean creative) I didn't want to spend $15 on a pattern I figured it out for myself. I bought a sweatshirt from Target for $8 Cut it up the front / made some bias tape from scrap fabric i had in my stash/ finished the edges of the sleeve's and bottom with a lettuce edge and hammered a snap onto the top.... and presto a toddler robe. Which she really likes.... I should have used a kids Large instead of a Adult small . Oh well. Live and learn.


Lil Blue Boo inspired dress

Pinafore this is fabric that my Mom gave it to me. It was my Great Grandmother's. I had about 2 yards. I didn't know what to do with it. Then I thought this was cute. It looks really cute over jeans with shirt under it.

This is Maddie not letting me take a pic. 2 year olds sometimes don't cooperate for the photo shoot. Well this is the robe.
and yes, she really is that happy all the time. (it's the crazy hair)

well. Thanks so much! But I have to confess.... anyone can sew. I If you can thread the needle on the machine & you can sew a straight line You can sew! You should give it a try!!! Do you own a machine?
