I knew sewing for a baby girl would be fun
Aren't these cute little pants? I made them from a sheet I got at Goodwill. I also bought a sweater there to refashion into a tiny sweater for my girl.
And after (with the front of the pants):
The sweater pattern is from Ottobre 1/2007. I had to shorten the sleeves a bit, and then taper them a little more towards the wrists but I think it will work well for Lauren through the spring and summer. The binding on the sweater is from the blanket I used to make these shirts. I was glad it was a close enough match because I still don't have any solid pink knit fabric.
I also got my Geese in the Forest blocks for February done this week.
These were fun to put together and I'm looking forward to the next block pattern, it should be available next week. If there's anyone that wants to swap some scraps for this quilt, let me know. There are some colors I have lots of but I do have some holes in my little stash (I could use reds, oranges, aquas, and I could trade purples, greens, maybe some yellows, and more).
Finally, I wanted to show off the dishtowels I made for my sweet mother-in-law, for her birthday. Happy Birthday Terri!!
The dishtowels are from Target and I embellished them with 30's reproduction fabrics, and some vintage bias tape and rick rack my mom gave me a while back.
