Sewing Fun


Well I am having fun..I haven't sewn in awhile, but now that I have my new machine..look out..I like to sew fun and quick things..In the book "Sew what! Fleece" by Carol Jessop and Chaila Sekora (2007)..I found a fun pixie hat and booties.
...now when my children were born, grandmas knitted booties, hats and sweater...my daughter still have a beautiful pink cape made by her french-canadian grandma..but this grandma doesn't knit....
first picture is from the book...isn't it fun???
second one is mine..I made the size 6-9 months, so baby can wear them in the fall/winter on the prairies..

I am going to add ribbon and of course the bell on the toe..."so she will have music wherever she goes".

Should i tackle the hat???????...might be fun for a photo opp lol

Your little grandchild will be adorable running around in those pixie shoes. The hat would be the icing on the cake. And for sure - bells - until they drive you crazy!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and for praying for the people of Haiti.

I love the green, but the pink is so cute for a little girl.

Oh my, that is so cute! I am right away thinking of a card in bright pink (or a gift tag) with your quote: ..."so she will have music wherever she goes"
