Busy Hands...

Rachel having grown like a weed this summer, handed most of her skirts down to Sarah and was in need of a few new ones.   I sewed two skirts yesterday.  This one is light aqua baby cord in a fun pattern..

 The color in the flower looks black but is actually brown.  It is very cute.  She can wear it with her dark aqua t-shirt, white, and we want to find her a brown shirt.  This looks good with light shoes or her boots.  The colors make it work for early Autumn on into Winter.

 This is a wee infant hat for my niece's baby boy due in December.  I am getting ready to start a rag quilt for him in the cutest fabric!

 I made this blouse out of a McCall's Laura Ashley dress pattern.  I don't know if it is out of print but the number is M5039.

All I did was cut the 'skirt' to the length I wanted and did not add the side zipper!  So cute!

 I made her green skirt yesterday too - she likes bright colors and the weight of this is actually heavier than the baby cord skirt!  

This fabric is very light weight.  I found it at the PA Fabric Outlet. It is so pretty and again can wear it now in early fall.  She will still fit in it next spring.

I am hoping to finish Camden's ( my great nephew due in October) quilt in the next couple of days, get baby Butler's ( great nephew due in December) quilt started and make a skirt or two for myself!

What are your hands busy with?

  4. Wreath making...

    I should be so talented to be able to whip up a skirt or a blouse. Very nice!

    And those new babies sound as if they'll be receiving some cozy gifts. Cute little hat...
