I have been doing some sewing lately, some of it for the shop and some for fun. Here are just a few of what has come out of my sewing times…
First off, it is wonderful to have another friend (via web) going through almost the same things I am going through in terms of our roundness. Though, she is due in just a couple weeks and I have a few more to go. This little frock was a vintage find, but it called for a little more. Thus, I added a special deer friend for a special little girl name Ruby who will be welcomed into this world very soon.
I think it was a perfect little thing to send for the daughter of the mama who is the epitome of vintage with a modern twist!
Then, I made some custom made bags for this lovely lady. Each have a lovely little hand embroidered piece clueing in to what may be hiding inside. They are fashioned after True’s little dance bag. I was able to make one more bag from the same fabric True’s bag was made of (minus the outside of the handles), so that little ballerina bag (the third one from the left) will probably be up in the shop on Friday. There will only be one.
These little bags were fun to make, but I totally forgot that I am kinda slow at the whole embroidery thing. I ought to practice more to get a lot faster, and it seems this burgeoning belly is keeping me in bed more and more, so maybe the time to practice has come! Now, I just need to find the right embroidery project.
I have a grand list of things to do today, which include organizing True’s closet, figure out Halloween sewing, and trying to get to my doughnut recipe figured out. Wish me luck…
What do you have up your sleeve today?
