In between working on 3 quilts, I've been upto some Christmas sewing... little, fast projects. I call them my "fun projects". I quilts some, then take a break and sew a fun project, quilt some more, fun project... you get it.
This fun project... a pair of Big Butt Baby Pants-Cowboy/girl Style, I made for a certain classic country, husband and wife duo who are expecting a baby this Feb. They are my favorite singers and I just couldn't help but get excited and whip up a pair of these baby pants for them. And google their address. And send it to them. Geesh, I sound a little stalker-ish, don't I? But it's all in love... I should just stop now. Thankfully, I'm much too busy to stalk.
I had to fussy cut this butt panel for the guitar playing cowboy:
I made 3 of these racing pillowcases for my boys for Christmas. See the little pocket in the bottom right corner? Is it just my kids or does anyone else's children insist on taking little toys to bed? I thought the pillowcase pocket would help keep from losing said little toys.
This is Baby Girl's fleece pillowcase. I tried to make it's pocket big enough for a mini-doll.
A little friend's pillowcase:
Farmer's sister wants a soft scarf for Christmas and she will surely get one! Ultracuddle fabric was on sale Black Friday and I picked up some. I had enough to make 2, 2-sided scarves. Now I have a friend's present done too!
And last to share for today...
I sewed the top for Baby Girl's Christmas Eve Pajamas, completing her set. I love how thick and soft this flannel is ('Buttercup Babies' Collection by Henry Glass... I got it at a discounted price from Thousands of Bolt's website, but don't know if they still have it). I used Sew Sweet Pattern's Janey Dress Pattern again and just can't say enough nice things about it. This time I just elongated the sleeve length.
This Elf must get back to sewing now. I have 6 pairs of Parsley Pants to whip up for my boys' Christmas Eve Pajamas, as well as 2 more quilt tops to finish.
Christmas Time's a Comin, Christmas Time's a Comin...
