my goodness, it’s been forever since i’ve posted! life has been so very busy lately. school projects, oya no kai’s auction, running after frankie and getting ready for our baby! i am almost 36 weeks and it’s hard to believe that our little one will be here in less than a month.
my dear friend jen came to visit me a few weeks ago & we settled in for 4 days of sewing, crafting and catching up. jen is one of the most creative people i know…check out her projects, ideas and her latest office re-design at creating bits of envy.
we sifted through piles of patterns/fabric and decided to make some clothes to fit the new baby in the fall. she also encouraged me to complete my unfinished projects. months ago i started several outfits for frankie and never finished them!
first up, a modern cowl dress for f. i found the downloadable heidi & finn pattern on etsy. i made a matching headband out of fabric scraps & vintage buttons. jen finished the red velvet jacket i had cut out for christmas…it looks perfect with the stripes!
next we worked on some outfits for the baby. i made a reversible jacket/dress out of vintage knit, red flannel and handmade bias tape. jen pieced together an adorable dress out of the smallest fabric scraps EVER, using a patty young modkid pattern.
we completed several other projects…i will take pictures & post soon!
