Sewapalooza 2011

Here are the fruits of my day off last Monday.




 Some appliqued onesies for some wonderful ladies in my ward. 

I really liked this dress I got at Downeast Outfitters in Utah, but I didn't like that I felt like I always had to wear it with a white camisole because of the low neckline.  I had a navy blue ribbed tank top that I never wear, so I sewed it into the dress using seamlines that were already there.  I also took the bottom half of the tank and made ribbed sleeve extensions because I always felt like the sleeves were too short, too.  Enter:  something I will wear! (with any color I feel like)

Some mending.  Not fun but necessary if you want your husband to support your habit.




A scarf my sister sent me a link to.  As I was doing it, I thought it was way too much work, but now I love it so much, I think it may have been worth the work.  My face is not in the picture because I wore no makeup on Monday.






The best thing that came of Monday was James making me this awesome new sewing table that is lower than a normal table, so the sewing machine is at the perfect height.  It is big enough to cut, keep tools, and keep my sewing machine on.  Before I was sewing on the end of my scrapbook table and it really wasn't big enough for cutting and sewing.  I love it so much.  James implored his friend, Aaron Hales, to help him.  Thanks for the help!

I LOVE the way the scarf turned out. Now I will have to make one...

And I am extremely jealous of your sewing table. That is awesome! All of your projects turned out super cute. Did you just cut the fabric for the onsies by hand?

The onesies I just added the logos to, I didn't sew them myself. I WISH I was that talented and patient.

You are so creative, Christy! I do really like that scarf, too. You crack me up, about telling us why you had no face in the picture. :)

Love the scarf!! What I wouldn't give to be sew-crafty. The possibilities are endless for you people. BTW, you look super skinny in the scarf picture.
