Busy Busy Busy

I have been busy working on lots of crafting stuff. So I have had little time to blog, but here are some photos from the weekend. I went to my friends house to help teach their daughter to sew and look what she made! She did a great job.

Here we are working the machine, she did such a good job it was hard to believe it was her first time.

Here is the cute shirt we did.

OK I had to include this. My friend is going to make a dress for her daughter and this is how she goes about it. It cracks me up, but I have to say that when I left it was well on the way to looking like a real dress. I could never do it that way, love to see the way others work.

And what blog would be complete without a cute photo of my Ada Liz. She was standing today for a couple of seconds (the longest she ever has) and she started taking a couple of steps, very wobbly steps and I think she is still far from walking, but steps! It is so fun to watch.

Oh and a quick list of what I have been working on:
  • My MIL's bag (the one I promised her for mothers day) is almost done!!!
  • Couple of cute things for Elijah (he does not know about them, I will show you after he sees them)
  • Quilt for Church
  • 2 new bags (cut out mostly)
I feel like I am missing something, but right now I can not think of what it is. Well I am off to do a little more sewing before bed.

Was that an applique you sewed on or fabric sut out??? I want to make some of those cute shirts!!!!

Brandy, I cut the fabric out. It is SOOOOO easy. All you have to do it get some Wonder Under (or something like that). draw what I want on the back of the Wonder Under, iron it on the fabric, cut out the pattern, and iron it on to the shirt. Then if you want to you can sew it on. Easy peasy.

Write again if you have more questions.

PS do not forget about yourself you can make really cool stuff for yourself too.
