busy, busy, busy

Just no time to write a post...because I've been so busy doing what I love to do! So I will leave you with some photos of what I've been up to :)
Red wool coat for Lily,don't you just love red coats on little girls?... from the Kitschykoo asymmetrical jacket pattern, reversible, of course

with the hem from a repurposed cashmere sweater inserted on either side of the collar and closed with a snap so it will keep Lily's neck nice and warm

inner lined with some extra chennille baby blankets for warmth
this is the other side...lovely Paula Prass fabric...appliques on the collar...elasticized cuffs :)

This is the first coat I made for the babe...corduroy, flannel and owls! I love the coat but the colors are just not good on Lily...she actually looks like she's coming down with something when she wears it, pale and sickly :( So naturally I had to make her the red wool and birds coat...much better!

These two sets are an order I made for a friend....monkey pants and appliqued loving the hedgehog applique :)

I finished up curtains for my Mom's kitchen and now I am on to Christmas's going to be a handmade Christmas this poor Mia, I can tell she cringes at the thought...hehe...don't worry, maybe there'll be some MAC makeup in that handmade makeup bag ;)


  1. Wow, beautiful, I love that red little coat. Fabrics are lovely and the hedgehog so cute!
