Well, I am up and coffee has just finished brewing, I am starting to wake up. We are traveling to my inlaw's today for a great turkey day! The dd's are super excited to get to see gma and gpa! I made two pies (apple and pumpkin) and fresh cranberry sauce. I am getting hungry just thinking about it all!
The leotards (did I mention I made 4...) turned out really cute! At class, I had a bunch of people comment on how cute they were (people I didn't even know...) and my friend asked where I bought them; to which I smiled proudly and told her I made them. It is always a compliment to my sewing ego when someone asks where I bought something!
I still have the polar bear red flannel pants cut out in 3 sizes (still haven't made it over to pick up a pattern for dh's pair). I want to get dh's cut out and sew all 4 at the same time.
I pulled out my jalie 2805 again to make a black long sleeve t-shirt for myself. I don't seem to have one in my closet. I also pulled out jalie 2448 thinking of making some fleece socks and maybe a pullover. I have some great purple power stretch fleece that would sew up nice for this pattern!
Well, no more sewing dreams for now, I have to start getting everyone up and packing things for our dinner tonight!
Well, I have two gymnastic suits cut out for both girls (Jalie 2792), I cut out my red polar bear flannel to make jammy pants for me and both of the girls. I still need to get a pattern for my dh's pair. There is a store close by that sells kwik sew patterns (cheaper than I can even find online, imagine that!), so maybe I will get over there later today to find a pattern for his pants!
I finished a fleece sweatshirt and matching hat (light blue with a little darker light blue polka dots) for my littlest one and I finished a lavendar fleece sherpa sweatshirt that I embroidered the word "paris" on for my older dd. I used the jalie 2805 t-shirt pattern in long sleeve and just made them one size bigger than what I have for their t-shirts. They both turned out cute. I will have to get some pictures one of these days, because isn't that why we read others blogs! To see the cute pics of what we have sewn!
Sew....what should I get started with???
I have cut out a fleece sweatshirt for my youngest. I have traced off a wool jacket pattern from bwof 09/2008. I have found the material I want to use for the jacket, I am still debating about the lining material though. While I was looking through my stash for lining material, about a dozen more projects leaped into my head. I had ideas for each piece of material as I purchased it, however, time has kept me from the project. Anyhow, I was looking at some flannel that I bought last year to make Christmas jammies for the whole family. It is red with polar bears. I wanted to make matching pants for everyone, then a top in red fleece (I have that too in my stash) with a polar bear embroidered on the front. I am thinking this would be a good time to get started on those (not sure I have the right patterns though...). I was thinking that if I am going to make any christmas gifts, I better get a plan together soon!!! Wow. I feel stressed just thinking about it all!
Okay, enough for now!
Halloween was a blast this year! The girls were as cute as can be! I had a tinker bell and a candy corn! They were fairly simple costumes to put together, I just freehanded them together. The hardest part is getting them to stand still long enough to get a measuring tape around them!!
We had a lot of fun carving pumpkins too!
