i made bossy's halloween outfit. he's a court jester. to make it easier for him i just tell him he's a joker. i hate hand sewing. i mean HATE IT. deep within my belly i hate to sew by hand. but i sewed 18 bells onto his costume so that he would jingle. well guess. what. that little stinker pulled off most off them within 5 minutes of wearing the outfit! turkey! and then he was mad that i pulled him away from playing to take the picture. so this is the best pic i have so far....isn't he a funny court jester/joker?

now, i didn't make indyanna's costume, but i did help it out. it had some holes in the seams and i repaired them. and i added the butterfly to the bodice and the lace to the bottom of the skirt. a quote from her, "you can just call me sleeping beauty"

2008-10-14 (tj's 1st birthday! AND lyndon's actual BIRTHday!)

first of all, an explanation of my title. it's my nephew's 1st birthday today! and my sister's BFF, cerise, is currently laboring and we're praying for a safe arrival of baby lyndon today.

ok, so here is a dress i finished today. yes, i've used this material already. i just think it's so cute and will hopefully be a hit at the craft fair.

and the back. i'm thinking of making a pair of pants to match.

**UPDATE** lyndon arrived on tuesday! i'm sure cerise will have pics up as soon as she gets around to it. (i've seen a couple of pics and wooooo is he cute!)

looking at my cousin cassie's blog i realized that i hadn't posted pics of the skirt she taught my sister, cousin jennie (check out her etsy!), and me to make. super easy and super cute! oh ya and it's reversible! maybe i'll get around to posting a pic of the other side sometime....... i bought this fabric in the clearance section for $2 a yard. SWEET DEAL.

this is a skirt that i made at our september ASG meeting. i LOVE the ASG! if you aren't a member i urge you join today and go to the monthly meetings. you will learn so much. and i guarantee you will love it as much as i do.

and this is a skirt i made years ago. i didn't have a pattern. i just made it up as i went along. this is probably one of the first 5 things i ever made.

indyanna's first day of school dress

Wednesday, October 8, 2008


my labels

i can't remember if i've shared the "rumba" dress or not. if not, here it is! if so, here it is again! i love this dress. i have to force indyanna to wear it but whatever.

and this morning i was taking a picture of indyanna--cause she was slinging her baby and i just thought it was super cute. anyways, i was looking at the picture and realized i made her pj bottoms. so here's a pic of those.

finally, after almost 2 months of not having my camera--due to indyanna dropping and breaking it and then it being in the shop to get fixed--i finally got my camera back yesterday! of course it came AFTER we got home from the state fair. so no fair pics except for the ones on my phone.

on to what i've been up to in the last coupla months!

this is bossy's first day of school outfit. i didn't get it actually finished for the first day of school. so really it's was boston's second day of school outfit. and yes it's wrinkled. get over it! (i left it in the dryer a little too long after i washed it and i haven't ironed it yet)

next is a dress i made for a craft fair my cousin, cassie, and i are doing in dec. a couple of other family members are contributing things to sell at the fair as well. like my aunt, and both sisters! i can't wait. but i have mucho sewing to do.

indyanna's first day of school outfit is in the washer right now. when i gets done washing and drying i will post a pic of it as well.

p.s. it's good to have my camera back!
