sewing projects






Theses are projects I did once the grandkiddies were asleep!'. I made two dresses for Andi. I made a matching one of the coral one for Reece. The kimono pj's are like a previous post that I had made for Reece but this is for one of Summer's friends who is having a girl. She picked out the fabric. She paid me in a bottle of diet coke, black licorice, and a package of chocolate necos! The skirt was a very difficult project. I had seen it on display at Fabric Depot and knew that this was a skirt I must make. It's floor length and when Andi put it on, she just floats in it! Dani is hoping to get some pictures of Andi in it by her professional photographer friend, Heather Ward! Such fun projects! Glad I have some little girls to sew for and one more on the way (which I've already purchased material for her blessing gown!)





I made up these flip flops today. They were one buck at Michaels. I purchased about 3 bucks worth of ribbon and cut them into 6 inch peices and burned the edges so they didn't fray. Then I just tied them on. My friend April thought this would be a fun project/gift for her little girls. I couldn't agree more.

THANK YOU for the cute dress for Reece! It is absolutely adorable!

Does she get a skirt too? :)

You are so talented!

(Thanks again for making the pajamas for little Emerson!)

And yes, when she's old enough I will suffer thru another skirt! There were TWO 90" panels that I had to gather to 23"! Impossible? For most, yes. But for super Gramzee, NO!

Don't you love those flip flops, I almost had the girls at girls camp make these last year! But just made some for my girls instead! LOVE that skirt!!

You are welcome to borrow the skirt pattern if you'd like. It's not the easiest thing to make but you seem to sew a lot so I'm sure you could handle it. Let me know........

That skirt turned out so cute. And the rest of the outfits are darling too. I need a girl....

I couldn't agree more Sharon! They just don't make boy patterns that are very cute. So, I shall wait for a Stewart girl!
