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?
