In order to maintain a little bit of sanity, this winter I have expanded my craft repertoire. In the past I have done cross stitching, crocheting, glass etching, pine cone wreaths and many other things. The most I had ever done with a sewing machine was quilting.
In the past few months I have fallen in love with my sewing machine! I have made all sorts of clothes for baby girl and a few things for my little man too. (It's hard to find cute stuff to make for boys!)
I am totally addicted to searching Pinterest for my next tutorial to tackle. I love trying new projects and sharing how they turn out!
I guess since this is a new blog I'll start with where this winters sewing experiments began.
The first 2 are car seat poncho's that I made for the kids. No pattern or tutorial on this one. I essentially just made a double layer blanket and cut a hole in the middle. Then using one of their hooded shirts for a template made a hood and sewed it in to the neck hole I just cut. Little man's turned out a lot longer than I had planned so I added some snaps to the bottom later to make it easier for him to walk.
I think that's a good start for now. I'll have lots more to share while I wait patiently for spring to come!
