Well, I didn’t get much done at all on my 11 days off from work. A lot of lazy days, which we really needed. I did get a few items completed before vacation, though. I got a serger for Christmas and have yet to get it out of the box. It is a little intimidating with 4 spools I need to thread, so I need to watch the instruction VHS Tape. Should be a hoot! 😉
Here are my outfits that I made for Crafty Tuesday:
Hopefully this picture does the skirt justice. It has a cute border print with Santa on his sleigh with his reindeer. I added some ribbons to it that have Christmassy buttons attached, and made it long enough so it hopefully will fit her next Christmas, as well. Always thinking, that’s me. 😉 I made it from scratch and it has a definite twirl factor.
Here is another cute outfit that I made. I added a skirt to my basic pants pattern. I also added pink ribbon to the bottom of the pants legs. I appliqued some of the fabric pieces to the top. It is a nice fuzzy warm fabric, and so darn cute! If I showed you the front on this one, you would see a tantrum underway, so I didn’t get a picture of that. 😀 Although it does have some Santa stuff on it, the fabric is mostly snowmen and igloos, so she should be able to wear this through the winter.
That’s about it. I do have a few other things that I have made that I need to take pictures. I’m not sure how much sewing I will be getting done this month, especially since they really don’t need any new clothes right now. They got plenty of clothes for Christmas. I will probably make a few things here and there, though. I’m mostly thinking about starting on summer dresses, since those are so fun to make…and I have soooo much fabric sitting there waiting to be sewn!
