My 100 Day Sewing Challenge # 22

I was able to sew for 5 days this past week for at least 15 minutes each day.  One of the days was a much enjoyed snow day that I spent the majority of sewing. 

These 5 days plus the 54 I've already completed puts me at 59 out of the 100 days I've committed too!

Here's what I stitched up ...



These cute 'little girl' pillowcases were so much fun to stitch up!  I plan too offer these for sale, more details to come on that later.  (Regular pillow size)
 

I couldn't leave the 'litte boys' out.  These 3 were fun to stitch up too!  (Regular pillow size)


I stitched up these 3 christmas pillowcases as well! (Regular pillow size)


I crocheted up this cute little baby doll blanket ... I used Bernat Baby Blanket Tiny in the color of 'hush pink.'  (I used a coupon at JoAnn's Fabric and paid a little over $2 a skein for it.)


... And these cloth gift bags.  I already had some smaller ones on hand but needed larger ones.  I've had this Christmas fabric for years. It has a bit of sparkle from just the smallest bit of glitter which made it perfect for making gift bags.  The best part though, is that they can be used year after year cutting way down on the amount of wrapping paper I need to purchase.

What have you stitched up this week?

  1. Love your pillow cases so cute. You inspire me to sew more for myself and quit just doing it for the business.

  2. I just love the material that you chose for the pillow cases! Especially using the polka dot for the main part. The material for your Christmas one is so pretty too! I have material for a Christmas one put aside but it is the brighter colors and I really like the colors you used in yours. Will have to shop more next year. I have 66 fifteen minutes done. Motivated to make gifts by you and the Bluebirds. Wish I had more time for that but I don't have a maid! LOL Nancy

  3. Just came across your blog...very cute sewing projects! I am always looking for quick and easy sewing ideas. I spent about an hour yesterday making a last minute gift for a 2 year old''s birthday party. I made 10 beanbags and a drawstring bag to hold them in, and included a card with a list of toddler beanbag games and activities. It turned out really cute and saved me a trip to the toy store!

  5. Dear Patsy,
    How wonderful to have a day of sewing! I have been knitting a washcloth. It will be my first completed knitting project, only another inch to go!
    I'm also working on making a quiet book for John. I just need a few more supplies.
    I am thinking the baby doll blanket goes to the little girl who gets the baby doll diapers :)
    Love, Kelsey

    1. Kelsey, you are right, the baby doll blanket goes with the diapers and doll for the little girl twin. All I'm lacking now is a diaper bag and a new outfit for the doll. Sounds like you are doing good in learning how to knit! I hope you will share a picture of your completed quiet book.

  6. Patsy those pillow cases are adorable. I love the idea of the gift bags. So useful. I have made a pair of cheesecloth 3/4 pants today. It's so hot I wanted something cool and a little bit dressy. I made them in white. All I can say is thank goodness I like wearing longer tops as this fabric is a tad see through. Oops. I dont think I will be making the cami top I planned on making with the left overs. I'd have to wear a singlet underneath and this would take away from the cooling I was after. Might pop this away for something for the Grandies. I completed a little embroidery on finding joy in the ordinary. I'm still not sure what I will do with the stitchery. I'm also trying to do a bit more on the Christening rug each night. Even though I'm crocheting it in cotton, same as the ball I sent you only white, it is still so hot with it on my lap. I am determined to have this finished by the end of this month. I have more fabric waiting to be cut out and made up. Must go and get some of this done.

    1. Jane, I had to laugh at your cheesecloth capri's, I bet they are cool!!! Stay cool Jane, it sounds like you are being very productive inspite of the heat.

  7. Patsy, the pillowcases are gorgeous. We must have been on the same wavelength because pillowcases were on my to-do list yesterday, though I only managed one - a long way short of your numbers, but at least it's one gift done for this year.

    Best wishes,
    Janine
