Projects from Feb 2010 SOAF

I spent a week in February sewing on the amazing Bernina 830 machine. What a sewer's dream! Lezette Thomason of The Children's Corner was the teacher and we made these adorable little outfits.

Back of the two piece outfit eyelet and pink top and skirt. I love the big satin bow and the v-neck detail.

This is the front. The eyelet is lined with the pink and the ruffle makes the skirt so flirty. This is a size 3. A little girl would just love wearing it!!

A true heirloom! Ice blue linen with embroidery embellishing the front pleat. This one is a 12 month size.

And such a cute little bubble!! Also a 12 month size. I love the shadow stitching on the yoke--such a simple touch, but adds so much to the outfit. This can also be made for a boy.
Sewing for children is sew much fun. I don't have to fit anything and the results are the cutest little outfits ever. They would look even cuter with a teeny, tiny person in them!!

Embroidery in the Hoop

Aren't these sweet? They are little pincushions that I made in the embroidery hoop. All I did was stuff them and sew the opening closed. I gave them away to a friend--I love making stuff like this!!

Civil War Tribute

I'm doing the Civil War Tribute quilt block of the month program through my local quilt shop. Reproductions and civil war prints are my favorite fabrics. I'm SO traditional! There's lots of strange piecing techniques and weird angles to this quilt. I'm liking it a lot!!

What I've been sewing

I made these aprons for my friend Linda and her sister. I love how the pockets expand a little.
I like to wear one when I use the long-arm. It holds my scissors and anything else I need close at hand.
