These are some baby kimono slippers and burp cloths. The kimono slippers I followed a tutorial http://www.niftythriftythings.com/2011/06/kimono-baby-shoes.html It was super easy to follow and these are VERY fun to make. I added Rik Rak to a third pair and they are darling!
Next up was some pajamas (lounge wear as she calls them) for my mother. She loves bright colored cozy pajamas and I found this fun contrasting flannel. I wanted to make two pairs of pants, however, the coral was cut soooooooo crooked I was shorted almost half a yard. Alas, my mom is tiny in size so I could at least eke out a pair of shorts.
Today is my mother in laws birthday. I bought her some very nice earrings off of ETSY (aahhhhh uuuuhhh aaaauuuuuuhhhhh--that's angels singing--I LOVE Etsy!!!). Ben chose a nice scarf and I wanted to make her something. She likes birds and I had this fabric I had bought with her in mind and I followed a tutorial for this bag--the olivia bag--from DixieMango.com. Again, excellent instructions/pictures etc.
This bag was super fun to make and comes together quickly. It is a great size not too big, not too small. I hope she likes it.
Also this weekend I have been working on fabric flowers--they are for a project that will be revealed later (I hope! :/). And I wanted to try my hand at the English Paper Piecing of hexagons. They are a great way to use scraps and I can do it anywhere (i.e.: not holed up in my sewing center). They do not, however, make fast work. We watched a movie and I did five. How the heck do people make entire quilts of these things??? Someone may receive a coaster, then next christmas the mate. These are a slow go. But I do see the attraction...
What have all of you been up to? Running or craftwise???
