Hi everyone. I have been so very busy the past few months sewing gifts for my grandchildren and also decorating for Christmas. I made some really cute nightshirts for my neices who are 9 and 7years old; and also one for my granddaughter who is 9years old. I sewed a really cute nightgown for my granddaughter who is 3 and hope to post pictures soon and the patterns I used. I forgot to just take picture of them before gifting them.
For the grandsons 4 years and 2 years old I made the following fleece vests in a beautiful gray fleece I purchased at Joann's fabrics. I used McCalls M6222 pattern...very easy to follow. Will attempt to now put a picture of the boys modeling them. I was nervous to sew in the separating zippers as I had never done this before but they were actually pretty easy! Yea!
We have an annual ornament party and besides the candles my daughter and I painted with alcohol inks in a craft class at Michaels Craft Store this summer using alcohol inks, I crocheted a cowl as a raffle prize. Added a border and some buttons to it and it came out really cute. Used the following pattern but in a Caron Simply Soft yarn. Pattern found on this link Cowl Crochet Pattern. Used some of the yarn to make a Christmas collar for my daughter and son-in-law's French Bulldog.
Now, am starting a mobile out of felt owls for a friend and will also make a fleece blanket..pictures of finished products to follow......with other personal commitments for projects for the new year.
I continue to be thankful for my family, friends and for the time to be creative.
Happy New Year to you all.

The next two are for my granddaughter who lives in England....a cute flannel blouse from McCalls 6156 out of flannel from Joann's fabrics. I made the pink leggings from a pair of pants that I used to wear...they turned out really cute. Each are size 3. The flannel shirt ties in the back...so cute!!!!
As you can tell, I use patterns to make clothes from. I am amazed by the people on Project Runway who can just whip out those patterns on their own. I am thankful to be able to sew.
Thanks for looking....hope you are all having a wonderful day.

|I usually have to buy the webbing but every now and then come across used webbing off a discarded workout bag. I now use purse zippers on the backpacks. Thanks to anyone who took a look.|
