And of course, Halloween. It's right around the corner! I have a few uses for these. The scrapes are going to be used for appliqueing onto t-shirts for the nieces and nephew! They will look soo cute!
More to come. I will post the results as soon as I am able to!

We don't have a printer so these letters were hand drawn. I just found some cute fonts online that I wouldn't be able to do free-hand. So I am sure there are going to be some more appliqueing going on with cuter fonts! More to come....

And immediately thought of the super cute Kirstin skirts. Like this one found here. And by the way, I can't wait to make one of these too.
So with that inspiration I created this:Too bad my adorable neice isn't here to model. It is not very different from the original and is not as bunchy as the Kirstin skirt, but I think it will be adorable on her. I removed the zipper from the back and sewed it back up. I added button holes (my first time doing those and I was pretty impressed!) and made a hem for the ribbon to go through. I can't wait to see it on her. Kris, its coming your way soon! I want to see pics!

And my final one I made for my mother-in-law. They just renovated their lake house so of course she needed an apron to match!
These are very easy and great for beginners. I haven't been sewing for very long and found it easy to follow and easy to add my own touch to it.
