Sneak Peek!

Here's a sneak peek at a huge project I've been working on since, oh, probably April.

Completely hand sewn from leftover volunteer t-shirts. They are for a favourite charity to include in their silent auction.

There are two of them, one boy, one girl. The boy one is a t-shirt with a bear (their logo) reverse appliqued on it, about 12 month size and the girl one is a dress with flowers relief appliqued on it size 12 months to 2T - it grows into a shirt as the child grows.

Guess how many hours of stitching this was! Happily I've found a better solution for inside labels!

PINC GLAS AND YELOFEED (glove pictures)

Here are a couple of glove pictures I haven't shown you yet. I packed up a big order of gloves this spring - the one on the top is a freebie I threw in as a thank you for the massive order. I was getting a little tired of monograms at this point so the geometric folk kind of flower design was really fun. I will definitely be doing more of those.

After the big order was this pair.

They were a special order.

#8 on my order list - it says: Ailsa (the name of the orderer, my daughter) A H (The desired monogram) pink gloves. Yellow thread. You know, all the details. Don't you just love kindergarten spelling? I love that thread starts with the letter F. Precious.
