Sewing Crafts

I can't believe I have been gone for so long.

Colder weather is heading our way, which reminded me that I really have very little cold weather outfits for my 1 year old. The problem is that she is 16 months and still wearing 12 month old clothes. Pants are a mess...even her 12 month old fit her long.

Anyways, I have decided that she can wear shorts and skirts for as long as possible with baby leggings. I just love making them and have found some really cute over the knee socks during the summer, on clearance, at Target. That is what I have been doing with my free time.

Also, I came across this great idea in this great blog. She turned a set of Halloween kitchen towels into a little dress for her daughter. I LOVED the idea and did the same. She used the kitchen towel is the size it was. Because my little one is so short, I had to cut a couple of inches of the top before I sewed the casing for the ribbon. Still the project was really quick. Especially since I am a novice sewer.

I only have pictures of the orange one...I will have to take some of the purple.

  1. Thank you for the great ideas. I have always made my childs clothes myself. It always saved me on money since se grows so fast. I have some extra discount upholstery fabric from that I am going to use for my next project.
