It's about time!

Whew! What a busy two weeks! I'm just going to post pictures of my completed sewing projects, and will be enjoying a steaming cup of tea with my feet propped up, while you ooh and ahh. As if. Glad I get to participate in Amy's Sew and Tell Friday finally. And man is it a list!
These three pillows where made
for some
children in Texas. They apparently LOVE them, which always makes the sewer happy! Sorry about the blurriness. I'm obviously not the best photographer!
Then I had things to make for my
niece's fourth birthday. These were a blast! Well, sort of... I did have a few issues with the dresses. They are gathered at the bottom to make them bubble dresses, and they are fully lined. I had the HARDEST time getting them sewn and flipped! Finally had to just work it backwards and beat it at it's own game. But they are the cutest dresses ever! Think I'll be making a whole army of them. And they are perfect for the fall and winter. Just add a long sleeve shirt underneath, and pair with a pair of leggings, and you've got the perfect cool weather outfit!

Thanks for looking, and happy sewing!


  1. So stinkin' cute! I wanna be you when I grow up! And now, I'm sending this link to all my friends on Twitter ... if you make lots of money will you fly here to see me? :-)

  2. I can see why they love the pillows! Can I have one too? *wink*
    The dresses are awfully sweet as well. Good job on presevering through!

  3. Love your pillows! So cute! This is my first time doing Sew and Tell. Sounds like fun!

  9. I love those pillows! And the dresses are really cute too!

    So glad you got to participate today! Hope to see you again! Thanks for sharing!

  10. Those came out great! My kids have been asking for something like those. I guess I'll just have to break down and make them. The good thing is that my kids names both are only 5 letters long. :o)

  11. Man! I wish I'd known that I'd need a small pillow made 'just sew' while I recouperate. Something to slip behind me while I'm sitting that would give a bit of support to my lower back. All the couch pillows are either too big or too little. I guess that with only 40 hours notice that my life was about to turn topsy turvey, even someone who is as organized as me couldn't think of everything. *sigh*
