So do you want to see some of the projects?
I mention this one first because if I had a book entitled 'The Collective Sewing Works of LeAnne' this would be on the cover....but with better pictures. (Mainly because this was a lot of work and it turned out to be more of Rapunzel's ball gown than her little everyday dress she wears in the movie.)
My little miss is going to be Rapunzel for Halloween. I broke down and bought the Simplicity pattern, I do not usually like big box patterns, but I can honestly say it was the best $0.99 I've EVER spent. (Not that it's an exceptionally amazing pattern or something, but because of the brain cells I saved by not figuring out this dress on my own.)
My Wild Thing quilt top! Can I say how much I love love love this quilt?! It was so much fun to make. Lately, I haven't done borders and I decided to stop after one because I wasn't sure if I wanted the second. Any suggestions? Add the second border or leave as is? The second border would be from this fabric.
Stockings for a customer who bought some stockings a couple of years back and wanted to finish out her set. Totally got me in the Christmas spirit...which leads me to say I totally listened to Christmas music while making them.
Pajama pants. I used the Kid Pant tutorial over at Made and whipped out, in record time, two pairs of pants. It is a great pattern/tutorial and I be using it for Christmas jammies. I will probably enlarge the pattern ever so slightly to allow for some 'comfy' room since they're jammies.
A little itty bitty baby dress and booties. (Leggings are Carter's.) I made a sweet little dress for my girl #2 who will be debuting in about 9 days. Yes, I am pregnant...or should I say almost DONE being pregnant. :) (Don't look too closely at the inside of the booties, they are a mess!) I love the little baby houndstooth print in red and pink! Precious!
A project that involves gray houndstooth fabric! Like just about everyone, I love houndstooth. I loved this project because it was quick, easy, and I got to use my new serger! I actually got it back in August for my big 3-0 b-day.
The finished project above is crib bedding. I have been agonizing over finding the right fabric for this project. I wanted to keep it neutral for a boy or girl but I did not want to use traditional neutral colors or ANY tan. (Nothing against tan.) I decided on gray because I could do gray with blue, yellow, or even green if I have a boy in the future and still do pink now. I made a crib sheet, it cost less than buying one, so I won't mind switching it out for a boy. (Plus we all know crib sheets get pretty worn from just one baby.) Best part about making this crib sheet - I made it from start to finish in under an hour. I haven't finished the quilt or mobile I have planned but those can come later.
Wow. I am almost worn out from just this post. Thanks for hanging in there with me.What projects have you been up to? Are you already thinking about handmade Christmas presesnts? I can't believe the time will soon be/is upon us!
Have a great Thursday!
