A Family Tank Top (For vacation):
I found these adorable iron on patches at JoAnn and had to make a family shirt to wear on vacation. You can see me, the husband, the cat and dog. Our happy family!!!
I still need to make the barrettes, but the cases are ready to go. I can't wait to make the barrettes!
Gnome Messenger Bag (by Sew Liberated):
The last bag I made frustrated me so bad that I had sworn off making bags again. Of course, I am now hosting a tote swap and I made the Messenger Bag. I cannot stress enough what a joy this pattern is to make. It took awhile to cut out, but once you get started, you just can't believe how simple it is. Plus, she did a bang up job of putting pictures next to the directions. If you do not own this pattern, you must purchase one. Fantastic! One made - two more to go.
My best friend's son is just about the cutest kid I have ever known. He is four and half and SO smart. He loves planes, jets, and knows many of them by name (I told you he was smart). I found this packet of materials bundled together at a favorite fabric shop of mine, Cabbage Rose. I snatched it up and made the pillowcase in 15 mins. No joke! You must make one as well. So easy! I hope he loves it! It was supposed to be in the mail like a week ago. It will be this week!
Still to make:
2 Messenger bags
Bart's Ukulele shirt
Two tote bags
Whoa! I guess I better hit the hay if I am going to survive the next couple of weeks. Having my own wardrobe on vacation though........priceless! Wait until you see my shirt for our anniversary! I am making one similar to our family shirt. I got the approval from the husband (don't want to embarrass the man!!!). See photos this week!!!
