Neat blanket

I haven't been to a baby shower in a while.  I've known this mom-to-be since she was in grade school. She's all grown up and is now one of my faithful clients.  I really wanted to make her something special!

I found this neat tutorial on YouTube for making a self-binding baby quilt!  I personalized it with the baby's name.  Not bad for my first one!!! I made this the night before the shower, so I didn't quilt the entire blanket.  

 Here's a link to the tutorial:

I purchased the wooden M from Walmart and painted it with acrylic paint.  I attached it to the top with glue dots.  Love those things!!!!!

In the hoop bib.  Cotton with terry cloth back
In the hoop burp cloth, also terry lined. Loved bow it quilts in the hoop!  Neat and fast!

I'll definitely make this one again!

Simplicity 8383

Wow this dress was "sew" easy to make.  I love it!!!!  I didnt make any adjustments.  I sewed the size 14.

I used a poly knit fabric from my stash.  I constructed it with my cover stitch and serger!

For some reason I don't have it on my shoulders correctly in this pic.  The front neckline is lower than this!!!!

Happy sewing!!!

Look at this great sewing planner!

I love looking on YouTube for sewing related videos.  I came across this and loved it.  I have my own variation of this, but found this one a little more organized as mine.  Hope it"s helpful...enjoy!

Summer ready

I belong to a few Facebook sewing groups.  I love knowing that sewing is not a dying art/skill!  Some of these groups have thousands of members!  Both men and women, beginning nner and ecpert, quilters and garment sewers.  We share our love for fabric, patterns, machines, notions, etc. on Facebook.  Some of us have even met up in centralized locations, some have travelled long distances to met in person.  I created a Facebook group called Just Sew Retreat.  I post about my retreats, sewing organization techniques, and projects..  We have over 200 members.  So,e of the blogs have challenges.  This pattern was sewn by lots of people in the Sew Much Talent group.  It looks great on every body type.  Here's my version.  I used an ITY knit from my stash.  It's the perfect little summer dress.

Sleeves, hem, and neckline done with Babylock coverstitch machine.
Thanks for stopping by!!!!
