Some sewing adventures...

I haven't been posting as much lately but I have still been sewing like crazy - I've been teaching my visiting friend the fine art of how to work my (oh-so-dodgy) sewing machine and so we spent a bit of time wandering the fabric markets both here in Nijmegen, Den Bosch and Utrecht and whipping up various projects - including...

A frilly apron for moi (courtesy of a gorgeous Spotlight fabric gift pack from a friend back home) and a babushka apron & pj pants for Aurysia

I think someone likes her pj pants!

Some Stroopy shoes - oranje for our little Dutchie-to-be

More baby shoes

My first ever attempt at making baby pants!

I made 2 more pairs of baby pants (and knitted beanie/bootie and fabric painted tshirt) as gifts - this one for a friends new baby boy

And the second one - this time for our newest little nephew

A piggy bib & owl fabric painted tshirt for a friends baby girl

A Very Hungry Caterpiller themed gift for a little man turning 1

A Miffy wall hanging for our nursery

My first attempt at making fitted cot sheets - soooo easy to whip up and so much cuter then all the boring plain fabrics in the shops! So far I've made 2 sets but I have plans for many more!

A newborn nappy cover - intended to be worn with some Bonds singlets of course

My first attempt at baby pj pants - it didn't end so well as I cut the fabric wrong and had to substitute in another colour for half the legs... Oranje it was.

A frilly apron for a friends birthday - there are actually 2 of these, Aurysia loved it so much she made another one of out of the fabric scraps!

Some Stroopy overalls

And some kimono style pjs (yes, Stroopy will match the wall hanging!)
That's it for the last month but I have lots more in the works as per usual - somehow I don't think I will ever tire of sewing... :-)
