October Show and Share

A Bounty
Show and Share

This darling pink dress sewn by Ann with 'clip-dot' fabric in a size 1 using a pattern by "Appliqué for Kids" which can be found on website.

Here is a dress for the older girl. An "Oliver + S" pattern, 'Book Report Dress' was used to sew this dress in a soft lavender corduroy and a floral lawn both from Fabric Finders. Roberta would like to share that the pattern is quite narrow across the shoulders, so it is best for a more willowy frame.

This white dress accented with pink ribbon was constructed by Nikki Stasny at the 'Sassy Southern School'. Trisha Smith's 'Perfectly Puffed' pattern was used on batiste for a size 8.

Another completed 'Kinsey' from the sewing along. This one done by Joanne.

PILLOWS, Pillows and more pillows by Susan. The yoga saying was stitched on a canvas from the "Needle House",  'Hot Mess' was sewn with tie died fabric,  and 'frugal' were also canvas' from Needle House. The Delta Gamma pillow canvas was from Chapparall.

Along with her stitching ability, Susan had time for a little machine sewing. These two garments made with 'Fleur de lis' (logo of Univ. of Louisiana) fabric were made from the Frannie, size 2 and Johnny, size 12 months patterns.

Susan also found time to sew up this 'Malina' pattern by "Bonnie Blue". She plans to enter it in the FALL CHALLENGE for our chapter.

Barbara made this very lovely night gown for her daughter, using a pattern from AS&E issue 58. The red polyester charmeuse satin was the perfect choice of fabric to give that soft flowing feminine feel.

Leda shared her talent with a crochet needle by making this 'Popcorn Crochet Baby Afghan'. She use three colors of yarn - pink, baby blue and brown. We have multi-talents members.

Trena has stayed busy with creating a silk ribbon embroidered purse from a kit and smocking the 'Lucy' pattern from "Children's Corner" using fabric from her stash. She did her own design on the smocking. Good for YOU!

New member, Nancy brought the ring bearer pillow she made for her daughter's wedding. The lace was from Nancy's wedding dress, what a wonderful idea. She smocked the pillow insert with a design from "Little Memories - 3 of Hearts".

Brenda has been busy lately, not only did she do a long awaited Christmas stocking for her nephew (sorry no picture at this time)which is a family tradition, but she finished a bishop from a sew along taught by Roberta and completed the 'Lucy' FB challenge plus a doll dress. The bishop is smocked with 'Sailboats' by Ellen McCarn.

And speaking of doll dresses, Susanna has started the ball rolling for next year's fund raiser by making a cute dress for the American Girl Doll raffle. This dress was made from the "My Favorite Designer Doll Dress Clothes" book by Wendy Schoen. Just for fun, she also did the precious "Children's Corner" 'Lucy' dress smocking from a design found in AS&E.

Joy has inspired us by putting the finishing touches to the dress, slip and bonnet from Jeannie B's class and bringing a complete ensemble for us to see. This project was made from Swiss Lawn fabric and hand stitched embroidered.

She has let her creative juices flow and has designed a diaper shirt set from a vintage pattern. This precious pattern should be available soon on her website.

This particular one was sewn with Swiss flannel. She did a machine shadow work of a little boat.

The following pictures are close up views of her bias scalloped edging demonstration and how she used it on different areas of the one dress. You may view a picture of the full dress by visiting the October program post.

Can you see the scalloped edging down the center of the bodice?

Here it is used on the sleeve

 And to finish off the effect, she has added it to the hem.
