Sewing Update for Winter 2014-2015

I feel like I did a lot of sewing this winter, but when I look at my list I only sewed about half of the things on here.

So here is what I did and did not accomplish…

  • bread bags – Still on my list of things to do. Although I read a post this fall that suggested all you need is a good bread box. You don’t really have to bag your bread up. And to be honest, my bread doesn’t usually last long enough to get stale anyway.
  • pjs – for my two youngest – one piece, zip up the front
The first set of pjs was matching. These boys are just so adorable.

The green pajamas with the stars are extra soft. It makes that little boy extra fun to cuddle.

  •  nightgowns – for my two youngest daughters – one wants fleece, the other wants flannel

Sorry – not the greatest picture, but you get the idea.

  •  skirts – as needed for my daughters
I was just winging the hem on the skirt on the right. The main part of the skirt is an old shirt of my husband's.

  • gifts – This is actually just a small portion of all the gifts I made this winter. I love making the gifts that I give.

It was so much fun to sew this little baby dress. I felt like I was sewing doll clothes.

  • napkin holder – I found this great pattern and could use a new holder
  • reusable “paper” towels – I’ve had this on my to-do list for. ev. er. I really want to do some of these so I keep putting it on my list hoping one of these times I’ll get around to it.
  • overalls – for my baby – fleece – to make him extra squishable
I put these on him a lot this winter because I suspect its the last winter hell be in overalls - sigh.

  • sew new curtains for my bedroom and bathroom – looking for inspiration here

So there you have it. I enjoyed my sewing this winter, and I’m looking forward to making a new list for this spring/summer.

Did you sew or craft anything this winter?

    The jammies look so squishy – or the kiddos in them 🙂
    I like that idea of the shirt/skirt – do you have a Pinterest on that?
    The baby dress was adorable and I loved the shoes – I need to look that up since a lady in our church is having a girl in August or somewhere around there 🙂

      They’re both squishy. 🙂
      The skirt I was just making up as I went along – sorry.
      There are a ton of free patterns for baby shoes. Just do a search on Pinterest – you’ll be overwhelmed. I think I have at least a half dozen different patterns and styles on my “Sewing-Baby” Pinterest board.
