Nursing covers

3 momma's to be asked for nursing covers.  One of the momma's had a baby boy on Sunday (whew- got the nursing cover to her on Thursday!), but the other 2 are still waiting for their babies.
Don't you like their fabric choices?

Diaper bag- Carnival Bloom

I made a diaper bag for this gals sister ,and she like it, so she ordered one for her self.  I added a stripe on the flap that matches the lining inside.  The button also matches the lining!

A few more sleep sacks

More Sleep Sacks. They are for a few different customers, and I actually remembered to take pics!

got a few things done

Yesterday was sanity morning- I get together with 4 other Mom's and every other week, 2 Mom's babysit all the kids, while the other 3 get to go and do whatever they want from 9-2.  Well, yesterday one of the other Mom's picked up my kids, and took them to the hosts house where she was babysitting.  She offered to bring the kids back too.  She picked them up around 10:00, and didn't drop them off until 4:00!  I got sssooo much sewing done!  I had toyed with cleaning the house, doing yard work, washing the car, but sewing won!

I absolutely love how this dress turned out.
I wanted to make her a few dresses for school, but when I don't have a pattern, I find it hard to make sleeves... at the school she will be attending the shoulders need to be covered.
I think it's the fabric that I love so much, I'm not sure it would look as great in a lighter, less vibrant color, but I may have to try it out. : )

I made another set of matching-but-not-quite dresses for the girls too.  We are going camping this weekend, and I find dresses the easiest for going to/sitting at the beach.  My youngest loves wearing dresses, the older one, not as much, but if I set one out, she will wear it.

This dress is for H.  She liked Mikenzie's dress, and wanted the same one for her girl.  She is a older than Kyleigh, so it fits big on her. 

Take care, Karen

Wondering why I've been so absent?  This summer has been quite busy for sewing sleep sacks!  I'm still selling 4-5 a week, which is what I thought I would be selling in a month!  I havn't remembered to take too many pics... it gets a little boring when I use the same fabric right?
We finally got our summer weather beginning of July so I have been spending my time sewing in the evenings, and outside enjoying the weather, baking on the cloudy days, cleaning the house, and taking a few day trips here and there.  It's been a nice relaxing summer so far!  I have volunteered to teach sewing from Sept- Jan at one of our local schools for 11 and 12th graders, so I'm not sure how much I will be posting here soon.  It's just 2 days a week for 1 hr, and almost 2 hrs... details are not finalized yet, and I'm sure we will take some time adjusting to the new schedule.  Our oldest is going to Kindergarten, I will be adding teaching to the list, and still sewing/ selling, and somewhere in between the cooking and cleaning will still need to be done.
I am excited for the fall, but will enjoy the summer to it's fullest while it's still here.  We are going camping with some friends, have a family reunion to attend, a fair to check out, and a few more day trips to plan.
Anyway, there is your update!  See you in a few weeks!
