Since Kailan hasn’t been acting up and getting all attitudey on us, he has been getting clothes sewn for him. Anya needs to earn more dresses, even though mommy really wants to make more.
These shirts are the same pattern as the last one. I just used buttons instead of snaps and only one pocket. I finally figured out how to use the button hole thingy on my machine, and it works pretty good actually. I cut out both at the same time, so I mass produced sewed them at the same time. Much more efficient use of my time. There are a few more that I have to cut out yet. I wanted to make sure he was going to wear them before I made them up, and he has been reaching for them in his closet. Yay!
He was pretty happy with the shirts. The first shirt has knights and chinese dragons on it.
This second shirt is poker cards. He will wear it when Brian hosts poker at our house and be his daddy’s good luck charm. It doesn’t work so well for him since he stumbled a bit and managed to bite his tongue. This kid could get hurt in a bubble, I tell ya. 😉
I also made an outfit for Anya (a.k.a. the Toddler-turned-Teenager) in May but never got a decent shot of it. It is a shirt from Target with a Tinkerbell applique of the fabric. The skirt is a skort for our little princess that likes to get dirty. She just looks like an irritated teenager here, doesn’t she?
Then I made myself a few things. I made a shirt and skirt set, but once they were done I realized that they looked a bit too much all together. I’ve just worn them seperately. Of course having pictures of them would be far too organized, so just imagine a white peasant top with a shirred bottom with sleeves in a pretty bright green and white knit. I did the skirt witht the green knit and made some ruffles. It’s cute, trust me. I have several things I’ve made for me that haven’t been photographed. Maybe I’ll get to it soonish.
None of this was completed last weekend, since that was all about the landscaping. I’m still a bit sore and very sunburnt. Oh well, it looks pretty! Hope everyone else had some time to get crafty last week. 🙂
