Sewin' It Up!

I was slackin' because my mom was here over the weekend and we were sewin' it up!!  I sewed up NINE skirts, yes nine!  (In additiona to the few that we already made.) The fabric jumps into my basket when I am at Joann's.  And Mom whipped up two jackets.  I am not going to bore you with all of the skirts that I made.  There isn't any easy way to photograph them.  Sorry, I am not going to put on all of them and have Mom take a picture.  LOL  Here is one skirt and one jacket.  Oh how I love this pinks houndstooth!! {Need to get some fabulous buttons.}

Why am I so excited about the skirts?  Because my Mom bought me these super fabulous boots to wear with the skirts.  I just couldn't see spending a pretty penny on the boots AND then spending even more money on skirts .  . . so I found the perfect skirt pattern New Look pattern, # 6147.  The only modification is the super wide elastic.  Elastic is 3" thick. This pattern is VERY EASY!  Check out the other ones I made in this post.

I jazzed up these two dish towels.  For some reason, I like dish towels to hang on my stove.  Guess it is because my Mom always did.  They're a little cheesy with the black lace but since they're for Halloween, I went with it.

Can't have sewing without making any baby burp rags and bibs.  Can't seem to stop making them for other people.
