more sewing

I made this cute little kitty
from a pattern from this site I think it turned out pretty cute.

I also made Simplicity pattern 2701 as a Christmas present for my mom.
It fits me perfectly (it fits mom too). I may make another one for myself someday. I like the details on it like the pleated pockets, collar and pleat in the back.

sewing projects

I've been sewing quite a bit since last fall. I'm finally getting around to catching the blog up on all of my recent projects. Last winter I made this red fleece jacket. Pattern: Simplicity 4032 view C size 8. I was pleased with how well it turned out but it is snug. I should have made a larger size.

I also made two pairs of pajamas. First the blue plaid ones from McCall's 4833 view D. 

Then the bright reindeer ones. The top is also McCall's 4833 view D and the bottoms are Simplicity 5877 view D.

Somewhere around that time I also made this robe. Pattern Simplicity 3696 view F.

Then came a vest. McCall's 2270 view C.

A bear. Simplicity 5461 view A.
A lined jacket. Kwik Sew 3085.
Another vest.
 This one more fitted. Simplicity 2633 in denim.

 A summer top made in June. Simplicity 4176, view B, size
10 in linen. I embroidered the design with my embroidery machine
And then at the end of June I made this bag for the fourth of July. It's Simplicity 3822 view A. I used a peanuts character print fabric. Instead of using a fleece interfacing I used a stiff fusable interfacing so it holds it's shape pretty well. The bottom layers got to thick to sew though and I had to improvise.

Finished Titania

Pattern: Titania by Elizabeth Klett from A Mingled Yarn
Yarn: 4 skeins Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in Candy Apple
Needles: US 4
Started: September 2, 2008
Finished: March 2009
Very pretty sweater and a very well written pattern. Didn't really take 6 months to knit, as I set it aside for several months. I made this one for my mom. I had given her several patterns to pick from and she chose this one. We are both pleased with the way it turned out.
