Seeking to rediscover my creativity, I endeavor to invent something new every week for one year. Sewing, glueing, baking, painting, building, photographing, cooking...whatever it takes, I will make something each week that did not exist the week before.
I am so excited!! The little I Love Grandma outfit I made the other day has been sold! I have an etsy shop (http://www.etsy.com/shop/TheCraftersLoft) where I sell things that I have made and I even have a part of the shop where my 13 year old daughter, Hannah, sells her own creations. This is my first sale and I feel proud that I've made something that someone else enjoys enough to purchase. I must admit though, I feel like I want to remake it. I am a bit of a perfectionist with some things and want to make sure that what I send out of my shop needs to be perfect! I am going to remake the headband, I think it needs to be softer and stretchier (stretchy-er?) for a babies head.
Anyhow, I need to make some cute little things for boys. The fabric that inspired me was this super cute cowboy fabric.
I tried cutting out a few different western themed shapes and they didn't turn out so well. Hat, horseshoe, steer horns, seems the boot was as far as my applique making skills can go.
I satin stitched around the perimeter.
I made matching diaper covers. For a girl we would call these bloomers, but for a boy, hmmmmm... maybe fitted boxers would be a better descriptor.
Now time to make the casing for the elastic waistband
For the girls outfit I made a headband so for the boy I decided a coordinating bib would be a bit more appropriate.
