Some trades....

Just a couple of things I did for trades on the diaper sewing board I belong too. I'm getting a couple pairs of newborn longies in return for these--which works out great since I cannot knit!!

First trade--Farbenmix Olivia, w/ Lost in the Wood fabric from The Fabric Fairy, with matching undies.

I also included an extra set: Tank from the Ottobre free pattern, and matching undies.

Second trade was for 11 pairs of girls undies:

I also included a tank to match one of the pairs:

Dress set

This is a sample dress I did for the local fabric store. The owner gave me the fabric, notions, and pattern, and I got to sew it up--I also get to keep the pattern, and when the fabric that I used sells out, I get to keep the outfit too!

Pattern was Kwik Sew 3664, View B. I really didn't love the fabric she picked out, but all sewn up, I really like them together. Size is 12 months--so if bub is a girl I'll keep it, if not will have to find a friend to give it too!

This set was really time consuming, and is the epitome of everything I despise in the sewing world--buttons and buttonholes (which used to be no biggie until my automatic buttonhole foot quit working...), facing, and LOTS of gathering. I made it through though, and in the end the result was worth all the fussing!

Skater Tee for Braydon

Just a quick shirt I did for Braydon this morning. I used a new technique (new to me!), called reverse applique--which I really love the look off. A bit time consuming, but the results are well worth it!!

The pattern is Ottobre 03/08, Spider Tee. I used black interlock, and the applique is done w/ lime green interlock. All the topstitching is done is lime green too!

Here fishie fishie!

Just sharing a set I made for a mama on the diaper sewing board I'm on. This was a trade--she had three yards of the goldfish fabric, and in exchange for me sewing up the dress and undies, I got to keep the rest of the fabric! Worked out fantastic for me, as I LOVE the Kumquat Goldfish fabric!!

Farbenmix Olivia, and that*darn*kat undies
