Arty pants

Well, actually it's a pillow. My little artist drew these little
figures and I couldn't stand to let them stay there on the paper. I
copied and enlarged her drawing, then traced it onto cotton fabric. I
then embroidered the little masterpiece and sewed a zipper and backing
on to make a pillow cover. Pssst: Don't tell grandpa Steve- it's for
his birthday!

Wife beaters

I had fun sewing tonite.... Like the kind of fun where you lose track
of time and can't wait to see how it's all gonna turn out. I bought a
pack of little boy wife-beaters and with a little cute fabric I
converted them into perfectly sweet little tops for my girl. I also
attempted to sew a skirt onto this one....looks pretty cute but what
you're not seeing is that I got distracted and sewed the skirt on
backwards...so there's a big seam right down the front!! Ah well, such
is the sewing life.
