O Bloomers

These are the little bloomers I made for my friend Anne’s daughter, Opal. She is 10 months old and I’m hoping these will last her through the summer and perhaps even into next. All the ones I made last year seem to still be fitting the same bottoms for another year. Sweet!

The fabric is Riley Blake and the tag is a temporary until I get my labels made. Something that should have been done by now, but is taking longer than I’d like. Oh well. I’m also making a little ruffly sleeved tank to go with it out of Michael Miller’s Who’s Hoot fabric. I did this one with coral thread and am now thinking I should redo it in the same aqua thread I used for the bloomers. What do you think?

What I’ve Been Up To

My friend Julia asked me to make some overalls and dresses for her twins and some twin friends. I used a pattern from Ottobre‘s Spring 2009 magazine.

I made a pair of blue striped overalls too, but forgot to get a picture! Julia promises me I’ll get a picture of all the twins together later in the summer so I’ll make sure to post that.

I helped PZ make herself a felt flower headband from a little kit. She was so proud!

The girls and I created this handsome guy one rainy afternoon. Believe me, we could have an army of these guys with the amount of rainy afternoons we’ve had this spring.

And this is my upcoming project – bloomers and a tank for my friend Anne’s 10 month old daughter, Opal. I’m hoping to finish it today or tomorrow. So let’s see, with my going rate that should mean you’ll see pictures of it in about a month! Ha!
