My nephew just turned four on December 10, and I made him this lounge set. I have been practicing getting my zigzag really neat, and I am finding it very enjoyable. I love making these little sets, especially for boys. There so many cute boutique-y girl outfits out there, and it is really nice to have unique and special boy clothes that aren't overdone or fussy. These fit the bill, and I am scrambling to make another set for Maddox who has requested "choo choo trains" for his next pair.

Well, here it is! All the pieces except for the Polly Pocket dolls that I bought to be toted stylishly in the little purse. I need a decorative dress form to display these items, Santa!

Perhaps because I have been staying up all hours of the night sewing, or perhaps because any moment in which I am not nursing or holding my youngest baby I am at my sewing machine. Whatever the reason, and there are many possibilities here, my husband has taken to calling me "Stitches." I have not been posting as much here because I am not really sure that anyone reads this and I have been sewing up a storm. Thankfully, my little business is doing fairly well. This has helped tremendously in terms of our Christmas. I do appreciate all my customers SO much!
For my own family, I have been sewing as many gifts as I can. I can't show them here because, well, I guess they might check my blog on occasion. However, I have to show off this little set I made for my niece. It is not quite done - I have to make an applique tee to match. The pieces I have completed so far are so sweet, though. I will be making another one of these for my own daughter and will likely add the items to my etsy shop in case anyone else out there is interested.
