I am back!

I cannot believe it has been so long between, I wonder if anyone bothers to look any more?

Well good news is that I have my sewing mojo back and I am ready to go! I have been sewing some gifts for all of the kids from mothers' group. We are all about to celebrate the kiddie's 2nd birthdays. I have made some library bags, which I forgot to get pictures of, and today I made 4 aprons. Two boys and two girls. I am putting a tool set with the boy's and some cooking utensils with the girl's. Very sterotypical I know, but I would hate to offend anyone - maybe I will doing it this way - oh well. I have made sure I mention in the card that they can be used for many different things.

I am really very happy with the way they have worked out, the bias binding was a little fidddly but the end result is great. Each of these cost only $3.75 to make. I thought it was great!

I also bought some gorgeous courdry (sp) fabric from SL yesterday and I can't wait to make Ellyse a pinifore (sp = again!) from it. I also have an idea for a friend's little girl who is turning one, I can't disclose on here though as she sometimes visits.
Hope to be back with more posts soon.

See, someone does read your blog! Love those aprons you made. I have been looking at some aprons online and think to myself if I should make some. I think I will at some stage and they would make lovely gifts.

Andrea, Love the aprons. I've been thinking of aprons as well. Love the holiday pics as well

Honestly girls the aprons are so easy, I could have done 4 in Ellyse's sleep today (they were already cut out), if it wasn't for all of the unpicking I had to do. I would be more than happy to send copies of the pattern, although it isn't difficult to figure out O guess.
The pocket on the bottom is sewn to make 6 little pockets.
