It's Cold!

New England has been hit by a cold front and it's bad! I was able to finish most of my Christmas shopping today and while at the mall, I kept looking at the scarves. I know I've said that I want to learn to crochet and that is on my list of things to do this winter. However, for some quicker satisfaction I want to make the scarf above out of some comfy fleece. Why pay for it when you can just sew one up in an afternoon for a fraction of the price! And after seeing this blog post at Miss Celie's Pants, I need to find some soft knits and drag out my serger!

Custom Made

I just finished a special order! I made this smock and cape set for my friend's mother to give to her granddaughter as a Christmas gift. Nana is a hairdresser and bought a salon chair for her 3 year old granddaughter. She asked if I could make her an apron and a cape for her doll to wear. The apron is from Bend the Rules Sewing and it was so easy to sew :) The cape I just made free-hand. Here is a close up of the fabric, which I got at Joann's:

I just love how this little set came out and I hope that my friend's mother and her granddaughter love it too!

Keep in Touch

I know I mentioned in my last post that I wanted to make a keep in touch clutch, something that I could keep an address book, stamps, a pen and a calendar in to help remember birthdays and anniversaries. Here is what I came up with, I love it :)
