2010 Sewing

2010 was a great year for sewing.  Let's take a look at what resulted from hours at the sewing machine:


I figured out the proportions of my current flag garlands in both the triangle flag & the scalloped varieties.  I also made a picnic blanket.


I guess that there wasn't any sewing in February, but in March I made sundresses for the girls, bunny softies for Easter & an oilcloth lunch bag for the Mister.


Continued making embroidered animal softies in April & I created a tiger & a moustached bear.  I also made a sewing machine cover & re-purposed some adult t-shirts into nightgowns for the kids.


In May I was able to make a cute picnic dress for Claire & I finished the custom king sized happy quilt for a client.


Three tiered skirts for both Sadie & I in June.  Plus a gorgeous vintage sheeting blanket & lots of flag garlands.


July saw another sundress for Sadie & a monochromatic scalloped garland.


August was pretty awesome.  Seems I was all about using my vintage sheeting linens for burp cloths & a cool pillow.


Was this my favorite vintage sheeting quilt ever?  Perhaps.  I also loooove this texture quilted pillow.


Our first family themed Halloween costumes.  Definitely glad that I made our costumes again this year.


I put Mr. Bearington on a little tote bag.


I finally made my kids an advent calendar, which they really loved all month & I made baby rattles for Christmas gifts.

Whew!  I really love to look back over the previous year to see all that I was able to make with the help of my scissors & sewing machine.  I love filling my home & life with things I've created & making a living selling my handmade goods is really a dream.  Thanks for indulging me with a look back.  Makes me excited to see what will be sewn next year.  :)

All of that amazes me! It's not just that you can sew, either, because a lot of people can sew. It's also that you have such a great eye for color and arranging patterns. I'm so jealous. My husband bought me a sewing machine for Christmas and I'm so excited to get started. Hopefully one day I can make outfits as beautiful as yours for my own kids. : O )
