May Sew & Share
This month's Sew & Share was wonderful, as always. Enjoy!
Roberta's granddaughter has to be one of the luckiest little girls ever. Roberta brought in three exquisite outfits for her.
This pretty little dress is Cheri Williams' "Baby Bishop" in a floral lawn bought from Fabric Finders.
The bloomers peaking out from under the dress are made from the bloomers pattern in "Grandmother's Hope Chest."
The smocking design is "Baby Hearts For Kerry" by Ellen McCarn.
This precious dress is "Delicate Daydreams" by Lyn Weeks made out of silky cotton from Bear Thread. The pattern can be found in Sew Beautiful, Issue #72.
The beautiful machine embroidery shadow work bow is a design from Applique For Kids, and the rest of the embroidery was done by hand. The bullions flowers are so sweet!
The perfect summer outfit! This cutie, sewn by Leslye, is from a Butterick vintage pattern in a size 4. It is made out of quatrefoil and baby pique. She made several of them for her granddaughters, each with the unique initials of that girl. Can't you just see the picture of all the girls in their sunsuits?!
This delicate beauty was made by Barbara, and is a smocked variation of a plate Barbara got from an online class with Maggie Bunch. The fabric is fairy batiste.
Lesley made this fun outfit from plisse. The top is a sundress top made from Michie's pattern #121. The shorts are Bonnie Blue's Lydia, which runs large.
Marisol brought in these cute in-progress outfits for her nieces and nephew. They'll be mailed off by the time the June meeting rolls around, so they had to come this month.
The bodice in front is from a "Sew Beautiful" pattern called Pascale. The applique is "For the Seashore" by Applique for Kids. Marisol says she has made this pattern a few time and has never had any issues with it.
The little girl's dress in the back is Children's Corner "Carol" and is made from Imperial batiste and pique (as are the other two). The applique is the same Applique for Kids pattern. She says this is a pattern she has made several times and loves it.
The boy's outfit if Miche #148. It went together easily.
This is another time when it's so easy to imagine the wonderful photography that could result from three cuties dressed in these adorable matching outfits.
|Stewart made this gorgeous dress out of linen with pima batiste lining. The pattern is "Toddler Summer Dresses" from The Old Fashioned Baby. The fabric and laces were purchased at Buttons & Bows. It seems like a perfect dress for a summer tea party!|
Trena has been busy, and has had a lot of fun creating! The above zipper bags were created from class samples after learning how to make Gelprint fabric. Doesn't that sound interesting?
For this bag, Trena used another class sample. She took an Alice Kolb class and learned how to use decorative stitches and make fabric windows.
Don't you love how she took class samples and turned them into something adorable AND useful?!
Susan is great at sewing clothes for herself, and she never fails to wear a new creation to the meeting. We're all pretty jealous! This is a tunic made from "The Tunic Bible" out of fabric from Buttons & Bows (www.buttonsnbows.net) and her stash. This is the third tunic she's made from this pattern and she says she loves it. So do we!
Teresa completed this batik quilt from a kit she bought at a quilt show in 2015. Don't you love the colors?
