so over the weekend
i tried out anna maria horner’s reversible quick change trouser pattern
in big-boy appropriate
prints from the new ds quilts line
for his birthday gift
Photobucket
i was so impressed with this new line- so many fun little prints and patterns to mix and match
i can’t wait to cut into a few more!

school’s out for summer!

Photobucket
my sewing girls finished up a couple of weeks ago
just in time to go off to camp
in new outfits
completely designed and sewn by themselves!
Photobucket
it was a multi-week process
project runway – style
starting with drawings, a trip to the fabric store, muslin prototypes, label design and a photoshoot
the finished products were so impressive and the girls extremely proud- rightly so!

a few other spring projects to catch up on…

hand-sewn snails
(using a wee wonderfuls pattern)

patchwork pillows
for mother’s day!

Photobucket

bunting banners
using the triangular fabric scrape left over from the floor pouf project!

it’s been a productive spring for these little ladies!

sewing class: winter jammies and quick gift

our last sewing class in 2010
was just before christmas…
Photobucket
the girls finished up cozy flannel pj sets
(which they reportedly didn’t take off for much of vacation)
then, we broke into the scrap bag
Photobucket
choosing remnants of past projects
to make gifts for parents and siblings
Photobucket Photobucket
they personalized kraft moleskine journals
Photobucket
and even improved upon the pattern-
Photobucket
adding a ribbon to the front that extended to serve as a bookmark
they little ladies always amaze me with their creativity!
family members were thrilled, of course
and they even have a few commissions for more…
proving nothing is better than a homemade gift!
