Fabrics I love

Close up the butterflies look like watercolors.

I really like this fabric.

Charger scarf

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.

new fabric

Brown Bear Brown Bear what do you see? I see a pillow case looking at me. Well not yet. I haven't found a pattern for a standard pillow case yet but I am searching the Internet for one.

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 some new fabric that I planned on making into a "Taxi Tote" using Anna Maria Horner's pattren from her book Seams to Me but on Monday when I went to my sewing class we were making aprons. I am happy with the apron. I think it looks really put together!
