The sewing room has been a happening place this last month as well~
I call it a sewing room but it’s so much more than that. I could call it a studio but that sounds so official and I’m not sure I could say it with a straight face. It’s more like my “doing things room”, but that doesn’t seem like a practical name either. My Grandma Joy used to call room a playroom; that seems like a good name..
I finally finished the crocheted edge on Eliza’s pillow! It only took… what, three months?
I should have had Justin take pictures of me crocheting. It’s supposed to be relaxing but the way I crochet feels more like a workout. I’m usually twisted and contorted; my lips pressed so tight they could crack a walnut. Right now breathing and crocheting at the same time is all I can manage. Despite all that, I really enjoyed making this pillow and I’m already planning my next project.
I also made Elia a jumper using this Fig Tree & Co pattern
This is the Polka Dots + Summer pattern~
This photo really doesn’t do the color of the fabric justice. It’s a lovely tomato red, mixed with a bright mossy green, brown, and vintage pink. She’s already gotten lots of use out of it and I’m anxious to make another. I put a brown shirt under it with polka dot leggings, and a little sweater… I love it!
I have several Fig Tree & Co patterns for Eliza and I think they are delightful!
I also have this Little Picasso Play smock. It’s supposed to be a smock or art apron but I think it would make a fantastic pinafore style dress. It’s next on my ever-growing “To Sew list”.
I’m getting excited about Holidays! Christmas with little one’s in the house… what a gift Have a lovely weekend friends…
