Sew and Tell Friday!


Yes, I can sew non-quilty things! I actually have quite a large stash of garment sewing fabric, especially knits that I need to bust through. I'm participating in the stash challenge over at Sewingmamas and working hard at sewing up some of my favorites. I'm getting to the point where I'd rather be quilting but I just hate to see this cute fabric go to waste and selling it too much of a bother, so stash busting it is for the month of February!
First, up some undies for my dd. A Kwik Sew pattern, the number is escaping me, but she just loves the fit on these and unfortunately she's now in the largest size :(


Next, a few pairs of simple fleece lounge pants for the littlest guy. He is so into soft clothes and he was thrilled to wear these!

And finally, an easy peasy way to bust through the knit scraps....washcloths! These are way more fun to use than the boring, plain washcloths you buy at the store, just ask my kids:) Knit tops with terry backs.


This is the first time I've participated in the Sew and Tell Friday. How fun! Now go check out the other entries at amylouwho!

Great little knickers and pants, very cute! So enjoyable sewing for little ones and it is such a good feeling to do some stash busting.

Oh my gosh! I thought my mother was the only person in the world that made us homemade underwear! How awesome!! She'd always sew a pretty piece of ribbon in the back so we'd know which way to put them on.

Thanks for the memories. I'm glad I found your blog today . . . .
