sew cute...

Recent stitchery projects for the kidlets here:
A fabric booster seat for my daughter... which she affectionately refers to as her "big girl chair".

I simply cut a square of thick foam cushion (from an old bus seat!), grabbed some bright turquoise vinyl for the top and green bird/leaf upholstery fabric for the sides... sewed a basic box pattern, and slipped foam in. Done!
I also stitched in laces at the back to tie to any chair.
Another recent project:
Reversible toddler hats (matching gingham pattern inside for brother & sister).
Now let's all gasp in unison - I actually followed a pattern!
Azriel's hat has the grey and hot pink kitty design.
Hudson gets the camouflage motorcycles on his.

Seeeeeeeeeeeeewww cute!!

  1. The hats are so cute. Could you make one for my nephew? He is turning 4 on July 4. Let me know how much it would cost.

  2. I have the same motorcycle fabric, LOVE it! I have been wanting to make these hats for the kids but can't find a pattern big enough for Aselyn's head :-(

  3. I'm so proud of you for following a pattern, and having seen the hat myself, I know that you did a great job!  Keep up the patterny good work, lol.

  4. Pretty please with sugar on top teach me to sew! I can get everything set up & stitch a fairly straight line but that is where it sadly ends.  Love your projects!

  5.  thanks Laura!

  6.  You're my 'rule'-model of course!  Thanks for the encouragement.. love you sew much. ;o)  (Especially since you're so patient at enduring my cheesy humour). xo

  7.  awwww, hehe that would be a hoot!  Totally the 'blind leading the blind' though, since if you can stitch a straight line - you're already ahead of me! lol.   Thanks for the compliment!  My golden rule: just keep sewing away till it starts to become what you want it to.  xo


Thanks for dropping by our nest, I love to hear from you!
