Hi everyone. I have been so very busy the past few months sewing gifts for my grandchildren and also decorating for Christmas. I made some really cute nightshirts for my neices who are 9 and 7years old; and also one for my granddaughter who is 9years old. I sewed a really cute nightgown for my granddaughter who is 3 and hope to post pictures soon and the patterns I used. I forgot to just take picture of them before gifting them.
For the grandsons 4 years and 2 years old I made the following fleece vests in a beautiful gray fleece I purchased at Joann's fabrics. I used McCalls M6222 pattern...very easy to follow. Will attempt to now put a picture of the boys modeling them. I was nervous to sew in the separating zippers as I had never done this before but they were actually pretty easy! Yea!
We have an annual ornament party and besides the candles my daughter and I painted with alcohol inks in a craft class at Michaels Craft Store this summer using alcohol inks, I crocheted a cowl as a raffle prize. Added a border and some buttons to it and it came out really cute. Used the following pattern but in a Caron Simply Soft yarn. Pattern found on this link Cowl Crochet Pattern. Used some of the yarn to make a Christmas collar for my daughter and son-in-law's French Bulldog.
Now, am starting a mobile out of felt owls for a friend and will also make a fleece blanket..pictures of finished products to follow......with other personal commitments for projects for the new year.
I continue to be thankful for my family, friends and for the time to be creative.
Happy New Year to you all.
