Fireman Lounge Set

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.

Just one more pic...

I absolutely love this hat.  I will be making more for sure.  Thankfully, I have a little girl to sew for (and many others in my family) :)

The Whole Kit & Kaboodle

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!

Happy Holidays!

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.
