Birthday Gifts

Since I just recently decided to start blogging about my sewing - I only have a couple of pics of prior projects.  The following are pictures of recent gifts I've sewn for a couple of adorable kids! I apologize in advance for the pics - still figuring out how to use my new camera! 

I made this outfit for a friend's daugher who turned one.  The outfit is a onsie with a ruffle bottom using the tutorial found here. For the skirt, I used this tutorial I found on a wonderful blog called Made! I would check out both websites when you get a chance!

I made these letter bean bags and shirt below for a little boy who was turning three years old.  They were pretty easy to make.  Fun too! I used this tutorial for the bean bags and I used this template for shirt. I added the tie to a plain long sleeve shirt bought from Target.  I loved the way they both turned out!

Happy Sewing!

Project Runway People!!!!!!!!

It's that time again and I almost missed it!  I was channel surfing the other night and came across the preview for the new season and all I can say is, "I'M EXCITED!!!!!" I have been watching Project Runway since its second season and I can't say enough about this competition.  It always amazes me to see what each designer creates at the drop of a hat. Here are a few of my favorite designers from past seasons:
Chloe Dao
Laura Bennett

Chris March
Christian Siriano - my favorite designer of all seasons so far!
Kenley Collins
Carol Hannah Whitfield

Make sure to check out the show!  It's on every Thursday - I'm going to sit and watch with my beautiful daughters who argue over who has the best designs.  I just might have a couple of future contestants on my hands! Happy Watching!

Hi Everyone!

I just started this crafting and sewing blog as a way to show everyone what I've been creating as the kids are sleeping or just running around crazy.  I have been sewing for about 24 years now - my mom who is an amazing seamstress taught me at the age of about ten. I still call her for emergency help when I can't figure something out and she is my favorite person to go fabric shopping with!

I discovered all the wonderful blogs out there when I was looking for an dress pattern for my girls.  I've have since become addicted!  I will be posting past projects in the next couple of days and making renovations to this blog as I go - so I apologize now if things seem a little disconnected.
