Denim is a favorite of ours. Living on our farm and even now on our one acre homesite in town. I can’t begin to tell you how many denim jumpers, overalls, and bags I have enjoyed making. Writing about this new project is very exciting to me as I made both of my items from some green chambray yardage I picked up at my very favorite small town, Mission Possible Thrift Store. They are so good to me always practically giving me the fabric and this time was no different . Two 3 yard pieces, I was beyond excited at my find. I had my heart set on a big pocketed jumper.
This was the only money I spent on top of the 2.00 fabric purchase which included the pattern I used for the toddler romper.
I was reminded of the importance of proper needles very soon into the large pocketed jumper as the many layers were demanding.
My Bernadette 38 was a gift from my Mother. Her name is Bunny and we get along swell. She did a great job with all the thicknesses but again I feel its always wise to use proper needles when using denim.
Now for the sweet little jumpsuit for my grand daughter Iyanah. I happened upon this pattern and remembered using it with my 9 girls and was thrilled to see it again. We have 11 children only 2 are boys. Working on 26 grandchildren and recently 2 great grand boys. Maybe things are changing.
Her are a few pictures of the toddler jumpsuit.
Thank you all at Sewcialists for the opportunity to share in this months February theme Denim.
I had someone order a custom diaper bag. It is for 3 very Sweet Special Needs children. All of them in diapers. This bag is made of dark gray canvas fabric with a darker gray water shedding sport fabric.
I am happy with the design I choose. One thing I am not real happy about is the weight , it is heavy and its empty. I need to find ways to make it lighter yet still durable.
Thank you for stopping by, if you are looking for a special needs bag let me know. We can work together and come up with the right design for you.
I wanted to make my grandson Isaac a tshirt quilt from his old tee’s. But truth is they were not in the best shape. My thoughts were why would you use beautiful new fabric and those funky old tee shirts. So, I purchased new fabric bought the screen designs and had them put on the pre cut fabrics with the fusible interfacing already ironed on them. NICE says it ALL!
Can’t seem to make enough of these. Garden, Biking, Walking, and extra protection on brighter days driving. My favorite is the linen. I made one to match a linen dress I made recently. I will post a picture need to get my main man to take a picture of it on me.
