I didn't learn to sew until I went to college. I had to take two sewing classes for my major and now I love sewing. I love the creative part of it, that I can get an idea from Pinterest and then make it my own or use the free patterns that they have on the site. I love Pinterest! It has so many great ideas. Here are a few of the sewing projects that I have worked on in the past few months that I absolutely love how they turned out.
I like to give homemade gifts so most of my sewing projects are for other people but that makes it that much more fun to see their reaction when they get the gift. I have an amazing friend who just had her third baby boy and I wanted to make her something that would be a gift to all three of them. So I saw quite a few ideas of this quilt online and then I just ended up making up my own design and going for it. I really like quilting for the reason that I can make my own design. So the quilt I made is a blanket and something to entertain her kids. On each end is three car ports and then the road for the kids to play on. It turned out super cute- not perfect but cute!
My brother's wife Michelle is expecting a baby boy any day now and she had a baby shower this past week. So I had fun making these cute boy things for the past few weeks. They all turned out so cute and I loved making "geeky" things that I knew both Karlton and Michelle would appreciate.
I just cut out a cape and put two pieces of Velcro at the top so you can take the cape off if you want.
Then I made some burp clothes out of flannel. Super nerdy and super cute!
I didn't have enough of the patterned fabric for both sides so I decided to sew the other side with alternately plain colored flannel and to make rag quilt it.
I love this cute little onesie. Some Avenger fabric and buttons and I saw the vest idea on Pinterest and it turned out great and is something I would make again.
I love, LOVE how cute this turned out. I again saw this idea on Pinterest- black fabric for the suspenders that I just sewed on and then I made four different bow ties that each have a snap on it so you can snap on different bow ties for different days.
Sharolyn also had a baby and had her baby shower this past week. I had made her a car seat cover that turned out really cute but I forgot to take a picture of it before I mailed it. I had sent it to her soon after she had her baby so she could use it before her baby shower came around. I loved the bow tie onesie so much though that I decided to make her one so that she had a gift to open from me for her baby shower.
I am now trying to figure out the next project to work on. :)
