Pouch for Purse

I need some bags/pouches for my purse. This one will be a summer first aid kit for my purse. I also hope to make a bit smaller something for a sewing kit too.

This one is Butterick 6678 view K. The two zippers are nice. I made it out of some decorator fabric that a friend gave me for free.  It looks like denim in the picture but it's really a bit fuzzy. My camera isn't the greatest with the flash inside.

It ended up about 6 inches high x 8 inches long x 1 1/2 inches wide.

Weird Shirt for Me

This is a strange top! I thought it looked kind of fun in the Ottobre magazine. I'm not sure yet if I like it made up or not! It hangs kind of weird but the styles right now are like that so maybe I just have to "get with it".

It's from Ottobre 2/2013 #13 The Lemon Juice top in size 46/48. No alterations were made. The fabric is a single jersey that I got from Fabric.com This is the first Ottobre I've made for me. I like them a lot for the kids. The sizing seems okay so I am encouraged to try some more for me.

Recieving Blankets and Burp Cloths

Recently a friend at church asked me to sew some receiving blankets and burp cloths.

Here are the burp cloths. They are out of a lime green and a blue and purple peacock fabric that she supplied. They turned out ok but not as nice as I had hoped.

Here is an action shot of the blankets being used!! Isn't he adorable?!??!?!!

I had machine troubles (due to naughty children which cost me $120!! Oooh Mama wasn't happy at all!!!!) and had to sew these on my oldest daughter's machine.  I am so thankful for my extra features on my machine! Especially my needle up/down and my F foot for doing edge stitching!!!!!!! So glad to have it back now.

Girls Undies

I know this should have been a winter project but I guess I missed it. Next year I'll be sure to get a bunch done for the year during the slow days of winter. They aren't hard at all. They go together quick. And they're undies so who cares what they look like right?

These are just a few of the assembly line of this week. I still have a few for the guys to do too....

Jalie 2568 in sizes K, Q, and AA - style A. Made 7 pairs total so far and have a couple more cut out. All out of FREE fabric from a friend who is in a quilt guild that can't use lycra. It's not the most lovely color but it's beautiful quality fabric! Gotta love free especially with the price of underwear these days! I bought the elastic here at a very reasonable cost!

Besides what family can say that they all have matching undies? LOL

Kwik Sew Peasant Top

I've made this one before and it goes together quick but it's comfy and girly.

Kwik Sew 3169 - size L (10) lengthened 3 inches. Fabric is a single jersey that I've had in the stash for a while.

Ottobre shirt and short leggings

Ottobre 3/2013 Watermelon top #29 size 140 with no alterations. Could have gone with the 134 as the neck is plenty large.

Ottobre 3/2013 Chica Ciclista short leggings #33 size 134 - cut to 140 length.

These are so nice for under skirts so little girls stay discreet and modest.
