Louie's blue cords

This pattern was a big pain in the butt. They kind of look like Urkel pants! I made the size three. I know Louie is small, but these pants were about six inches too long. I made HUGE hems, so hopefully they'll fit. I think he'll like them, and if all else fails - they can always go in the play clothes pile. I love the material though.

Brown hoodie and skirt

I love the way the little daisy stands out on this hoodie. This is a stretch knit that wasn't too bad to work with. I should have hand sewn the hems though. Oh well. I think it'll look okay after it gets washed. I love the way the stitching around the hood turned out though!

Livi's pink blouse

One more Christmas present done! This shirt was a big pain in the butt! The pattern was pretty easy, but this fabric was awful! It is certainly not the best sewing job I've ever done, but I think it turned out cute, and I think Livi will like it. I like the white and silver ribbon on the blouse. I got that ribbon in a swap, and I finally have a project I can use it on.

The flames shirt and the frog shirt

Louie's shirts are done! I think they turned out cute, and I hope he's going to like them. The Christmas gifts are getting done! Woo hoo!


I made these wipes for my friend as a gift. They're really soft. I still have some lobster flannel to make some more, but that will have to wait for a bit.

Strawberry Shortcake pajamas

I really like how these pajamas turned out. I've had this material for a while now. I saw it on a clearance table once and knew Livi would love it. There wasn't very much there, and I have had trouble finding a pattern that would work with the material. I finally found one! I made these pajamas for Livi for Christmas. They were pretty easy although a little time consuming in places. I think she's really going to like them.

Here is the shirt I've been working on for Louis. It's finished except for the buttons and buttonholes. I've got to figure out how to work the buttonhole maker on my machine! I couldn't resist taking a picture and posting though because I love the material. This shirt is also a Christmas present.

Ray's pajama bottoms

I made these pajama bottoms for Ray for Christmas. The material is a really soft flannel. I know the color is a little boring, but I think Ray will like them. I will probably make some kind of shirt to go with it. I think I'd like to make the shirt in a coordinating color with the leftover blue in the collar or sleeves. I'm not sure yet.
