1. This cute little purse, made from the free tutorial from Seven Layer Studio for one of Little Sister's friends:
2. A Totoro stuffie, for our little friend's first birthday (along with a bib/apron that I didn't manage to photograph). I used this free pattern, but using the stretchy knit I had on hand made him pretty lumpy. I recommend using something more like the felt in the tutorial!
Oh, and I don't think I ever blogged about the pajamas they have on in those photos either--bonus!
3. I made 10 of these reversible fat quarter aprons as a custom order for a friend who used them as favors for her daughter's cooking theme birthday party--fun idea!
|Little Sister was not happy about modeling this, so her grumpy face is cropped out ;P|
4. I made this purse with leather trim to donate to a school fundraiser. First time sewing with leather, and it was pretty easy!
|Adapted from the free Phoebe bag pattern|
5. Mother/daughter birthday outfits--my friend and her daughter have birthdays two days apart, so how could I resist?
The top is the Fun Summer Tee from iCandy Handmade, except that I added a woven insert for the shoulders. The printed fabric is a Nani Iro double gauze--sooooo nice! The stripe is a 100 yen per meter find.
And the dress is this free Caravan Dress patter from Dotta. Since I used the same woven for this skirt, I cut the back pattern piece in half instead of having the same fabric top and bottom.
I thought it would look cute to have this little inverted pleat in the back instead of a gather.
Update--I finally got a photo of these lovely ladies wearing the outfits I sent! How cute are they?
6. A skirt from the fabric that my friend picked out when she visited in November--I finally got it made in April! I'm terrible! It's a Milkmaid Skirt, from this free Crafterhours tutorial.
It works better as a spring skirt anyway, right? She wouldn't have been wearing it in the winter...
7. The scarf I included with my friend's skirt as an apology for taking so long on her skirt ;) Dimensions from this Imagine Gnats Circle Scarf Tutorial.
8. Oh wow--this one is old! I made this dog sweater out of a thrifted sweater sleeve as a joke for my parents' dog after my dad sent me a link to a similar idea.
