I haven’t sewn anything since Jude’s Kimono two days before he was born. That’s about 2 months now. Quite sad if you ask me. Well, we had another SEWcial this past Saturday, Jason and Jude had a ‘Daddy Day’ and I got to sew with the ladies! I took this opportunity to catch up on making some slings as gifts for several coworkers and friends that will be having their little ones soon (and one was for Jason too)! I finished up all six that I had set out to make and felt quite accomplished:
You might also notice the lovely lady in gray that is showcasing the slings. That was a craigslist deal that Jenn found for me. $15. . . crazy what people give away! She is an adjustable dress form. I’m pretty excited to stick her in my new craft area at the new house. I’m pretty sure she needs a name. Any suggestions?
And the Sunday sewing (it was started on Saturday but didn’t quite get finished before we needed to get to bed). Since I’m still not down to my pre-pregnancy weight, I have only be able to wear my maternity jeans. And it is HOT here in Austin. It’s been at or near 100 degrees outside since Jude was born. So, I’m determined to make a few skirts so that I am not sweating every time I step foot outside. So here is the first:
It’s a little girlier than what I typically go for, but I couldn’t get the thought of having a ruffle with this Alexander Henry fabric out of my head. So I went for it and I like it. 🙂 I used Sew What Skirts to guide me through the process. Hopefully there will be several more skirts being made soon.
So yay, with this post I can call this a craft blog again! 🙂 There will be more to come!
