Little Monsters

I have been lots of sewing this Christmas, most of it I didn't get a chance to take a picture of. We (my girls and I) did make these cute little monster dolls for all the cousins. I had the girls draw a picture of what they wanted it to look like, then I drew a pattern. They cut them out. I sewed them up, they stuffed them. The cousins really like them, and they were very fun and easy to do.

Best gift ever

If you are ever wondering what to get quilter, you can't go wrong with fabric. Really it doesn't matter what kind of fabric. Pretty much any will make me happy. But my sister, on a recent trip to NYC, proved that she is the best sister ever and made a stop at a little fabric shop called Mood.

Mood, is where they take the designers on Project Runway to. I was so excited just to see the bag, and I would have just been happy with the bag, but she picked out some beautiful fabrics.

It's funny how much we think alike, because as so as I saw them I thought of my grandma Dramy, and how much she would have loved these fabrics. Then she told me that she got them because they reminder her of our Dramy. Really it is one of the best gifts I've ever gotten.

This time I mean it

So, this time I mean it, I am finally finished with all 7 quilts. I want the quilt to be a surprise so this is the best picture your going to get for now.
I haven't just been making quilts for the past few months, even though it may seem that way.
I made this cape for my nephew for his birthday. This is a really easy project that even a beginning sewer could do. I made mine reversible so, I just cut out 2 cape shapes then sew them them together. Before I sew them together I sewed on the hero emblems which I made from felt. For the Batman symbol I just googled it and then enlarged the symbol and printed it out. Then I traced it to the felt and cut it out and put it on another piece of felt.
For the other symbol I cut our a block letter A (the first letter of his name) free hand and sewed it to another piece of felt. So, once you have sewn the pieces together with the emblems facing each other, you turn it right side out. You attach a collar piece with Velcro on each end and you have a cape perfect for your superhero.

I've also made lots of pajamas and I have lots of sewing planned for Christmas. We will be doing some bags some pillows some dress up clothes and lots more.
