I made matching aprons for my niece and her doll for her birthday. I had patterns for two different doll aprons, but neither of them was what I wanted. The first one had a gazillion pieces and the second one wasn't similar enough. So after making the girl apron, I used some simple algebra to scale down the pieces for the doll.

Kimono Top

I started this Kimono Top 9 months ago, and then I found out I was pregnant and suddenly I didn't have any energy.

This week I finally finished it up in time for my mother-in-law to take it home with her to wrap up for my niece's Christmas present. And here's the matching doll top that goes with it.

Steve Scarf

I finished a Blue's Clues' Steve Scarf for Alex a few days ago. This is the best picture I could get right now. He's too aware of the camera and was a wiggle worm today.

Gray, Green, and Teal Quilt

A friend of mine is getting married soon, and I wanted to make her a quilt to match her living room. She has a gray couch and likes lime and teal with it. I was pleased to find Ty Pennington's gray and lime prints, but was having a harder time matching in some teal. I had found a couple of Denyse Schmidt's Chicopee prints that worked. And right before I started on the quilt, I found some of Ty's newer prints that incorporated some aqua perfectly. For the solids, I used Michael Miller's stone and limeade and Bella Solids horizon blue. I used this Market Street Quilt Pattern again (I learned it's called a disappearing nine-patch). It's an easy and fun pattern, but I think I'm ready to try something new next time!

Raincoat and matching kimono top. I made the raincoat from leftover laminated fabric after making a tablecloth.

Fairy Godmother Is Finished!

I finished the Cinderella dress this afternoon. There's a sparkly tulle petticoat under the skirt, and I finished up the ribbon choker and headband. Once her glass slippers arrive from Etsy, she'll be ready for the ball!

a.k.a. Sewing Satin Is Hard!!

I still need to make the petticoat, headband and choker. But the main dress is done. Next time I'm using polyester.

Plaid Party Dress

I love how the skirt is on the diagonal. The wrapped top was supposed to be too, but the pattern wasn't correct. I still think it turned out cute though!

Twirly Tunic Top

These tunic tops are two separate pieces, so they can also be worn separately.

Pear Sweater

Katie, my craft boss, gave me the pattern for this sweater after I found out I was expecting. I knitted most of it while I was pregnant, but I had a few things to finish. (Mostly just putting it all together, which is the tedious part.)

I finished it this afternoon. Alex wasn't very cooperative after his nap today, so I hope to do a better photoshoot soon. Plus there's a matching hat!
