Pajamas for my volcano-obsessed son:
I used the raglan-sleeve tee and pajama pants patterns from the cool book, Sewing for Boys. If you want to sew for a little boy in your life, I highly recommend this book. There are some great basics, like these patterns, and some nifty pieces like jackets and dressy pants.
That's a helicopter applique flying over the volcano, with volcanologists inside. My son wants to be a volcanologist, but in a few years I will probably try very hard to steer him to a safer vocation.
A messenger bag I made for my daughter's friend's birthday, using some fun printed corduroy from JoAnn's. I based it off the messenger bag pattern in One-Yard Wonders.
This was really fun to make and pretty fast too because of the simple shape, and the owl print lining was bonus cuteness.
And lastly a sweet dress for a friend's baby who just turned one. I used McCall's 6017 and Anna Maria Horner voile (Anna Maria rocks!!!). When I sew for babies, I'm always surprised by how tiny they are! The bodice on this is only couple inches high.
I also got my daughter interested in hand-sewn clothes again--go me! The trick is to let her choose the fabric and pattern, no matter how *interesting* (read: I would not have picked that) I think they are. More on that in another post.
