My BFF's granddaughter absolutely adores Dora the Explorer. So I made her an overnight set for her birthday. This is a small bag with a quilted bottom and a twin/full size pillow case.
I also made a pair of simple pajamas. I still have to hem the sleeves and bottom of the top and attach the neck facing. I even made a personalized card using the motif from the fabric.
Everything fits right into the little bag so she can just grab it and go when she is spending the night at Grandma's.
Tomorrow I begin sewing for me. YAY!

I can't believe how long it's been since I've posted. And sadly, I don't have much to show for my absence. I have been very busy at work - as a matter of fact I have gotten a huge promotion and will be needing to revamp my entire wardrobe. I feel a SWAP coming on!
I did finally manage to get pictures of my granddaughter in the the skirt/vest I crocheted for her and the top I sewed. You can't tell from the photos but the skirt is underlined with the same fabric used to make the top. Cute!
This is a top that I am working on. I will try to get a better picture when it's done. I did hong kong finishing on the seams since the fabric is so ravely. Brown is the main color of my upcoming SWAP.
So one day my husband comes in from work and announces that he promised his staff that he would bring them some homemade baked goods the very next day. So guess who had to whip up something really quick, on a week night no less. He said they really enjoyed it.
I attended a scrap night a couple of weeks ago, and had a wonderful time. I have now been in scrap mode ever since, but need to sort of snap out of it because I have a wardrobe to make.
There should be many pictures coming your way soon. I have a three-day weekend coming up [YAY!] I hope I can get a lot done.
