{January 11, 2010}   Christmas sewing update

Wanted to put up a few pictures of my Christmas sewing projects.  I made two items on my machine and one knit item.  Unfortunately so far, I only have pictures of the one thing.  Will try to get pictures up of the other 2 at some point!

This little outfit is something I’ve been working on for a very long time for my new niece, Bella.  It was supposed to be a baby shower gift, but I didn’t get it done with moving and everything else going on, so it was a Christmas gift!  Here it is Christmas day as they opened it:

It’s Butterick 5220, view A.  It was a pretty easy pattern, and I got to put on a zipper and hammer on snap for the first time!  It looks huge, but I made it a bigger size so Bella could wear it for a while.  The fabric is an organic fleece from Hancock Fabrics.  It is SO incredibly soft!  I want my own sleep sack to wear made out of it!

Here’s little Bella modeling her new outfit:

Looks like it fits pretty well with some room to grow!  She looks so cozy in her little outfit! 😀

The other projects I made were some pajama pants for my husband made out of this cute green cotton with monkeys all over it.  I also knit some arm warmers out of green and black self striping yarn.  I made her a scarf 2 years ago with the same yarn, so she’s starting to have a complete set!  Next year I’ll have to do a hat, and once I learn how, mittens!

I’ll try to get pictures of the other stuff up when I can.  Hope you are all well!
