This Week’s Sewing…

I really have done some sewing this week, but I only have really boring pictures of the clothes laying flat…so for that I apologize.  First up, an outfit I made for E-Boy: brown twill pants, a ringer tee and a doggie print camp shirt.  I went a little wild with contrasting topstitching on this outfit, the pants are stitched in orange, and the top has double-needle stitching in blue and brown.  It does make for a cute ensemble, though, even if I haven’t yet put buttons on it.

And today I finished up sewing these adorable baby outfits for a set of boy-girl twins.  I’m pretty sure the intended recipient doesn’t read my blog, but if you do, pretend you’re surprised when I give them to you, okay?

    agree that the knit projects and snaps are very professional looking I bet it will be used over and over. I made similar toddler shorts and pull on pants for my son..years ago. i took many pictures of him and they are my favorite ones. I think Son was very proud of them as they we unique and He picked the fabric prints, Take pictures. They grow up fast and want o have nothing to do with anything I designed..Instead he wants to cut up sew zippers (for decoration) and use white embroidery floss on Black too tight jeans 😦 I treasure the Old times with him and am taking lots of pictures of the Grand kids I have from my daughter…Keep sewing. and keep learning too.

    Those all look so wonderful. I’m jealous. I would love to be able to make clothes like that but seem to have the worst luck.
