I made a bag from a dog food bag for a friend. The first one I made was a sample.
This week my students are working on recycle and redesign projects. I saw these at the fair. The blue and yellow dress was made from fair ribbons turned backwards. The dress with the orange skirt used men’s ties for the top. I can’t wait to see what my students come up with.
This is the latest quilt I made. I inherited it partially cut out and a few blocks sewn together. I made it to wide so I couldn’t get it on my quilt frame. My friend Jamey quilted it for me.
Jemma made what was supposed to be a cover for her ipad mini. It came out a little small for her ipad, but she decided she could use it for a pencil case. She’s going to try and make another ipad cover soon.
I had quilt camp this week for these girls since their older siblings were at bible camp.
They finished their quilts in 6 hours over two days. I couldn’t believe how fast they were. I think it helped that we have sewn before.
I’ve been doing a quilt camp for these girls. It’s been a little harder coordinating schedules with these girls.
They made pillow cases. Next we will make pajama pants.
My parents got to come and see Jemma in the ballet. My niece, Samantha, saw her first ballet. She liked the fabric on Jemma’s skirt, because she kept rubbing it.
Friends that have come to every ballet.
With Princess Aurora.
The white doublet is the last one I made. This is the only picture I got of it.
I was home sewing for the ballet.
I made these doublets for two of the young male dancers.
I sewed the appliques on this tutu.
I remade this jacket from a previous ballet.
I put sleeves on the three doublets on the left. I made them for some other performance.
I didn’t sew all this the week everyone was gone, but I got a lot done.
This is where the dogs hung out while everyone was gone, under my sewing table about four feet in front of my sewing machine.
