Summer dress

The weather is warming up here in NM.

So I made a summer dress, size 12 months. This is the second time I make this dress and it's a pain. Should of listened to the other sewing club members when they said to stay away from this pattern. 

It did come out cute and I did fix the back to close correctly.
I will try it again, but will wait a while. 

Matching bloomers.

I have a tub of scraps that are too pretty to toss, so I began sewing them together in a scrap style then cutting 7 inch blocks from them.

Then sewing a white border around them. They look cute. Not sure what I will do next. I just want to use up all the scraps then I will decide what to do. It will be a quilt, just not sure on the size. 

Have not been able to sew much. Work has been stressful. I have been coming home extremely tired and track season for Matt has started.

 Two weeks till spring break. Can't wait. 

Take care,

Look what I got!

A new sewing machine! 

It came yesterday afternoon and I right away made two outfits size 3.

It came with a walking foot and a free motion foot. Can't wait to use them.

It may not be a top of the line machine, but for what I do (sew for homeless kids) it will work.

So I am headed to sewing club with 2 complete outfits today (have not gone in 2 months)
and a pair of p.j. pants, 1/2 made when my old machine broke. Not going to worry about a top,  just need to get them in.
Size 1

Spent the morning cutting out some pieces to sew. Frustration not having full yardage of fabric, but got some thing cut out. Wish people would donate fabric for boys.

Glad to be back sewing. 

Take Care,

Almost there.

A few more pin wheels and then I could put it together. 
This has been a slow going project, but it will get done. 

Take Care,
