Sew, What's New?

Curating sewing and quilting talent, techniques, and tutorials, since 1997.

The Love is out camping with his buddies this weekend and I am so psyched about being able to sew & create all weekend. Here is what I accomplished last night.

Austin Pajama Pants

I started these 2 pair of pajama pants for the youngest grandson, Austin, last month. Sometimes the simplest of projects get put off because I think, "Oh they are so simple. I'll whip them up later." And later never gets here. Since we will be visiting Austin and the rest of his family for Thanksgiving, I finished these to take with us.

Riley knit top

2+2 Skirt from Oliver + S

Next up is this cute little purple top for The Princess. Again, I started it last month and just kept putting off the finishing details, like weaving in all the serged ends. This top goes with the skirt I made her in September. The Princess likes "bling" to adorn her clothing but I'm not really a "bling" person so I used lots of buttons on the top. Hopefully, she'll like it.

Two projects slated for completion this morning, both are for The Coach.

  • Finish cross stitching the Thanksgiving bread cloth which is part of last year's birthday gift. I only have a little outlining to do. (For her birthday last year The Coach asked if I would cross stitch a bread cloth for each holiday for her. So all year I have been doing that. After Thanksgiving's cloth is finished I have the birthday cloth and a general use cloth to finish up. The general use cloth was a late addition.)
  • sew in the lining of the purse I knit The Coach for this year's birthday. I will give it to her over Thanksgiving weekend because her birthday is in early December.

But first I'm off for a morning run!

Thanks for the comments, Ladies. Susan, the pajama pants are made of plain cotton knit fabric from my stash. There used to be an online fabric store that had great, quality kids fabric. I can't remember the name but I was really sorry to see it close up. Anyway I am still using some of the fabric I purchased back then, whenever that was.
