It is heating up in H-town. Ugh. But I have had lots to do, thanks to a couple of friends that asked me to do some sewing for them. Yay.
First is a bride to be that didn't have time to make her bridesmaid gifts, so she let me make them. They are gorgeous Anna Marie Horner figuring the 8 scarves in Innocent crush velveteen and voile. I had a little trouble at first with the nap on the velvet and the slippery voile, but once I got it figured out (starch and looser stitching) I was whipping through them in no time.
I am also making some Jane Market totes for them in Innocent Crush. The fabric should arrive today and I cannot wait to get started. I did finish the flower girl bag because I had the fabric. It is Heather Ross girls with horses from Spoonflower. I made one for my sister, the horse lover (the little girl on the print looks just like my sister did when she was little).
Here are a few others that I had made for myself, but happily found new homes.
Second, is some Easter baskets for 3 kids, 2 girls and a boy. I had already made two for my niece and nephew and they are fun to make. I used canvas on the inside to give them some strength. Since I made up the pattern for the twins, who are only 2, I made the new ones a little bigger and changed a few things. Got to get working on the boy one today!
