Wow, it has been awhile, hasn't it?!  I haven't done much sewing lately, but another mama and I agreed to swap sewn outfits for each of our girls.  Her package is on its way to me now, and I just finished the outfits for her girls.  They are 6 and  3 (if I'm remembering correctly), are both skinny-minnies, and are very much into skirts right now.  Tera, their mom, prefers to sew with knits, so I decided to do woven skirts for them.

I decided to do more lagunas since they are so very cute!  She doesn't have an embroidery machine, so I added a cute love-bird embroidery to each t-shirt.  The shirts a basic, long-sleeve shirt pattern from Ottobre 4/2004. 

This one is for her older daughter in shades of red and brown.

And for her younger daughter, a laguna and t-shirt in shades of green, pink, and turquoise!   (The neckline looks a little bit wonky here, but it isn't.  It is just laying funny.)

I love these sets and will be sending them in the mail to her on Monday.  I hope she likes them as much as I do!

Next on the cutting table is my first attempt at paper piecing.  What are you working on?


  1. Both are pretty but I really like the red and brown set!

  2. Hi, Sandra! I nominated you for a little blog award on my blog since I really like what you sew. No pressure to pass it on or anything.:)


  3. Thanks so much, Cindy! You are too sweet :)
