the way the sewing bible says to. I used Liberty fabric for the outside and some waxy, thick Lisa Stickley fabric for the lining. I love this Liberty fabric! It's HOT pink and I love the print. I used the same fabric for Ellie's birth announcement. I made this make-up bag for a friend and another one for myself (but out of a different outer fabric). I have pieces cut to make a few more. They are lots of fun to make and pretty quick. I don't really like the stitching up part because it takes some time right at the end when you're sort of teased by what's otherwise finished. You just want it to be done! The stitching up may take time, but it's worth going slow because it can often make or break the look and quality. I didn't stitch this one up as well as I should and the zip sticks a little in a few places.
I made Ellie some more booties. I didn't take an after pic, but here they are in progress.
I appliquéd a few onesies (or vests, as I think they're called here) for Ellie. One tulip puckered a bit, but I went with it anyway.
And I made her a tag blankie. Babies love tags, don't they?
Here she is enjoying her onesie and her blankie. Happy girl!
So that's a bit of what I've made lately. I hope to finish a skirt soon and a tote bag for my mom.
