I tell you what, I have not sewn in a while! I have so many fabrics, most of which aren't my style any more, and just so many sewing supplies all-around that are unorganized, that embarking on a simple project takes way more effort than I have the energy for. Once I get going though, the creative juices start to flow and I go on a sort of sewing binge.
The first projects were for this little cutie:
I had a really hard time with the fabric combo on this one, so I ended up using a mish-mash of fabrics Caris liked. Here's the back:
Graham got in on the photo shoot action. Pretty soon all four kids were doing somersaults and handstands all over the yard.
Here's another project that came together easily - a baby gift for my friend Chelsea's baby boy:
The front of the blanket is unbleached something-or-other and soft brown flannel. The back is a gorgeous green-gray fine-wale corduroy that makes me want to take a nap. The patchwork binding turned out really cute, but next time I'll avoid denim and corduroy in a patchwork binding. My machine didn't sound super thrilled with the many, many layers - especially around the corners. Anyway, a couple of cute monograms for the blanket and onesie made this a special gift that baby will surely enjoy.
A couple more finished projects to come once I upload pictures!
