Ruffle foot

After buying the Little Girls, Big Style book a few weeks ago, I decided a ruffle foot for my sewing machine would probably make things easier. I’d been wanting one for a while, but just hadn’t gotten one yet. Finally I was able to order one. It came, and I was excited. Until I used …

Sewing for the kids

Lately I’ve blogged about my sewing projects, so I thought I’d share some pictures of the finished projects. The boys loved their new John Deere pajama pants. Caleb’s fit him, but weren’t nearly as long as I expected them to be. He’s grown more in height than I realized. Trying to show off some of …

The boys’ quilts

A friend asked me not long ago how the boys’ quilts are coming along. I just laughed. At that point not much was done. I had been busy practicing for the choir concert and had set the quilts aside. Since Monday I’ve had a lot more time to work on them. This is what Samuel’s …

Fall table runner

One of my big projects lately has been this table runner. My mom brought a quilting book for me to borrow when they came. There were a few really neat fall leaves projects in it that I just loved. This isn’t one of those projects. 🙂 But I did use the five-point leaf template from …

Anna’s dolly

Anna’s dolly turned out a lot better than I expected her to turn out. It was the Mae doll from Bit of Whimsy dolls. For the most part, the pattern was really easy to follow. I stuffed her arms and legs too full though, so had a hard time sewing her together at the end. …

New pajama pants

Samuel needed new pajama pants, so we went looking in my fabric stash for fabric. He picked this lizard print. It’s so loud and silly, but the boys love it. My favorite part is that the fabric cost barely over $1, and there was enough for two pairs of pajama pants.

Quilts for Christmas

This year our boys will be getting quilts for Christmas. I’ll be following the Road to Spring Quilt-a-long instructions. The hardest part so far was picking out the fabric. The boys share a room, so I wanted the two quilts to coordinate, but not match exactly. Instead of picking out 20 different fabrics, I chose …

Sewing a rag doll

The beginning of Anna’s dolly – the Mae doll from Bit of Whimsy dolls. I’m not that great at hand sewing, so figured I should start now to be sure her dolly is ready in time for her birthday (where has the time gone??? She’ll be 1 in three weeks!). Dolly’s face is done, and …

Two recent sewing projects

A friend of mine needed a new curtain for her bathroom. This was very simple to make, and I think it looks great. She loves it, and is thrilled that there’s enough ribbon left from the trim to make her daughter a new hairbow too. :laugh_tb: The other thing I’ve been working on is a …
