May Projects

K, here's a report of what sewing projects I accomplished for May.

#1- Aloha! Using some free fabric from a fabric distribution, I tried my hand at smocking. I think the fabric was too heavy weight for it to work right and I had a bit of a rough time working out the tension with the elastic thread (any tips on this is welcome) so the results are not as "smocked" as I would have liked, but hey, it works. She looked very cute for her luau.

#2-This is the first (and somewhat likely the last) thing I've ever sewn Boz. We got him a bunch of bbq stuff for his bday so this apron seemed appropriate. The kids had a lot of fun painting it with me (the pants I was wearing at the time were the only causality).
#3-Finally finished this set of PJ's for Elyette and her cousin McKenzie. Can you tell which one is for which girl? I got this flannel backed satin (awesome stuff for pj's, but a bit tricky for me to sew--slippery!) with the intention of making them for Christmas...hmm, better late then never, right!

#4- This dress was from some $1 per yard fabric from Walmart. So its nice to sew on cheap fabric, I feel less nervous about messing it up. Doesn't she look cute. That girl can make anything thing look good!

Oh and for #5, "lil' bee" got in the action even. She thinks I'm a wonderful :)... Although I think she's just glad to not be naked anymore.

How do you do it? I love all of your sewing projects. I am dying to start sewing, but I know it's a long road for me to making good looking clothes. Fun!
