I was able to squeeze in a little sewing time over the weekend. First, another springy outfit for Sawyer.
I'm not really sure what that little guy is on the front of the shirt. An inchworm? A caterpillar? An alien? I really don't know. But I drew him freehand. And he makes me smile because I don't know what it is or what it was supposed to be.
I made the outfit late Saturday night. In fact, I was doing the eyes and antennae when SNL came on. I didn't want to stay up any later and stitch around it. I was too tired. Let that serve as a warning to you. Do not try this at home. By Sunday afternoon, Sawyer had drooled so much that the little inchworm/caterpillar/alien was coming loose from the shirt. On Monday I stuck a little stitch witchery behind one edge to adhere it again and sewed around it. It worked.
I had tried to take a picture of the baby in the outfit, but that's nearly impossible these days. He's so mobile. And obviously flexible, too.
And speaking of friends, I made this tote and tissue pouch for my dear friend, Jenneen, in Ohio. Her birthday was yesterday and it arrived just in time. (Happy birthday, again, my dear friend.) I used the highly-coveted Apples + Pears fabric by Alexander Henry. Autum tipped me off that she found it right at Jo-Ann of all places. Score!
