I really like this fabric.

I am making this scarf as a gift. I am not really happy with the end result. I think it was too short. I am going to take off the yellow part and then it will be the right size for a child. I am going to make another one, I'll keep my fingers crossed that it will be suitable to give as a gift. Otherwise I am going to have a lot of Charger scarves to wear.

Had a wonderful day shopping! I found some new fabric and can't wait to create! I found flannel Brown Brear Brown Bear fabric that I am going to make into a standard pillow case. I also signed up for a sewing class with my Mom which I am really looking forward to. The class isn't till December but I already have the fabric for the project! Haha can't wait

That's a lot of booty! So nice to see the kids using their Trick or Treat bags I made for them. I was happy not one fell apart. Something you don't see every day...A Banana beating up Andy Kaufman!
So sorry to see Halloween go! It was a wonderful night and the kids got lots of candy for Mom and Dad insert evil laugh. Dr. G was a monkey and F.W. was Andy Kaufman which not to many people got but F.W thought it was awesome!
Now that Thanksgiving is fast approaching its time to put my sewing into high gear for X-Mas gifts. I am planning on making Dr.G a super cape for when he is saving animals. I've made him a couple capes out of his big brother's old t shirts but I want to make him a special one with a D on the back! I also want to make taxi tote for a friend.
I am looking for a pattern to make a table runner. I haven't had any luck all the patterns I find are quilts which I don't want.

I got Alicia Paulson's book Stitched in Time. It has so many great ideas. I got new fabric that I think will look great in our house. I am not sure if I want to make pillows or a table runner. I just saw it and fell in love. I love all the possibilities a yard of fabric has!
I've made a grand total of 6 Trick or Treat bags! I am pretty happy with the results each bag gets better and better! I have one finally bag to make by Saturday for my nephew. I also started a bag for my sister from a cut and sew pattern. I am really loving sewing especially at night when everyone is asleep.

I have started the Trick or Treat bags and they are a great project for me! The bags help me practice basic sewing skills so that's awesome and I see instant results. oliverands.com has a great free pattern and I am going to try sewing the lazy days skirt. It's for "absolute beginners"!
