A few of my recent completed sewing projects:
Burp cloths for my little sister (We're only 18 months apart, but she'll always be my little sister.) that just had a new baby boy.
I love burp cloths. Double layer flannel are my favorite. They are soft & really absorbent. I just cut two layers in the shape of rectangle with rounded corners & serge all the way around. If using a regular sewing machine, just stitch right sides together leaving an opening for turning. Then turn them out, iron flat & top stitch around. I think they are a sweet, useful gift & they look great rolled up.
In going through our camping gear, we realized that one of our mummy sleeping bags was missing it's storage bag. So I sure did just whip one up for it. I thought that the brown fabric looked a little camp like.
And I've also been working on some lightweight summer sleeping shorts for the girls. I love to make these a little baggy because they'll fit the girls for a few years.
One of the reasons that I love sewing, is because it saves me money. I don't buy pajamas for the girls anymore, I just whip them up shorts or pants from fabric in my stash & have them wear their old t-shirts to bed. And it felt good to make a bag for the sleeping bag out of what I had on hand. Dylan mentioned trying to find a replacement bag to buy & then asked if I could just make one. Yep! No need to spend money when you have the materials & the skills! :)
