These were super easy to make. I used the tutorial for flat front pants from Dana Made It. Instead of making my own pattern I pulled out this one from the '70s.
I hated to let it sit so I put it into a quilt. It was so fun to make
and now my grands and I can cuddle underneath it. I put fleece
on the back. I put a few ties in it to hold it together better.
I finished it like a receiving blanket. You can see the picot
trim I added and the rainbow border. I love it and especially love
How sentimental it is with my mom's handiwork in it too!
I wanted to sew up this blouse after seeing it on http://dapperduds.wordpress.com/.
She had used a cute fox print so I decided to make it a novelty shirt.
me when I had Sarah in 1980. I never could figure out
how she could stitch in those tiny holes in the Aida cloth.
it is such meticulous work and so beautiful.
anyway, I decided I wanted to display it, so I made a
pillow with it. I had some vintage looking fabric I used. I
I love it! I'm so happy I could display it.
soon I will post a quilt I'm making that has a cross-stitch
i put in the center. One that my mom made in 1987. :)
So much fun to make. Isn't the little
ill have to post a pic with them wearing them...
for the bigger ones I used Simplicity it's so easy A2083
i got at Walmart. For the little one I printed off the
pattern from danamadeit.com
the chevron ones are for cc and rj. One for ck coming...
the black polka dot one is for cc. I made a match for rj
every little girl loves a twirly skirt! Isn't THAT the most
important thing about a circle skirt?
and showed me how today. The roasts were in a twin
pack from Costco. As you can see, we cooked it in
a cast iron skillet.
rub a lot of coarse salt and pepper into the roast on all sides.
then rub in some thyme.
put it into the pan and add minced garlic all around it.
put it on the stove on high to sear it well. Add 1/4 c butter to
the pan. Sear it on all sides. Make sure all the meat has been
coated with the yummy garlic and butter. Put the pan in a 250*
oven. Ours was at 135-140* in an hour. Medium rare. Delish!
remember to let it sit for 15 min before slicing. Slice against the grain
i love to make baby things and here are some of my
latest projects. I pieced some of the receiving blanket
tops and added flannel to the back. I like to crochet
around the burp cloths with the fuzzy yarns. I like to make
matching burp cloths to go with the blankets. I also
made some bibs and crocheted around them too.
i like the chevron patterns. Fun to sew. I also like to
try different pattern ideas I get from Pinterest and blogs.
