A Little Break

Taking a break for a bit. We have a sick little one here.

Cute pic from healthier times.

this moment

Miss Matilda won't be a part of our family for much longer. I am trying to savor each moment with the best cat EVER!

Shorts-A Late Kids Clothes Week Challenge Entry

I made these shorts for J one day last week.

Made from a cute dinosaur print fabric, a little long-like board shorts.

Kids Clothes Challenge Week-Spring 201-Monday

Yeah, I know it's Tuesday, but I figured I'd show you what I made on Monday. It's actually something that I started this last weekend and finished up yesterday.

Sorry about the fuzzy picture, that girl would not hold still for me. I created my own pattern for this skirt (expect to see it in my shop soon). It has a ribbed waist and a fun ruffle. I can't remember exactly the name of the yarn but it is from Knit Picks. It is so soft and I love the color changes. 
Well, that was Monday, what shall I work on today?

Sneak Peek-Clutch

The only time I get to doing any cutting or ironing is at night while the kids are sleeping. Well, I can cut fabric when J is awake, and sometimes he'll let me iron. Most of the time his 3 year old hands are just too curious for me to do any work with hot stuff. Last night I cut out and fused the interfacing on for three new clutches. I really like how this one turned out:

I added a little embellishment to the fabric. I'm hoping to get these sewn up and in my shop by the end of the week.

Embroidery and a Clutch

I've fiddled with embroidery before, but lately I'm wanting to pick it up again. I found this Kanji print fabric at Jo-Ann's the other day and just had to pick some up (for my Japan-loving nephew). I decided to try to make it into a clutch using a pattern by Keyka Lou. Here it is:

It's up in my shop.
