Been busy lately- sewing

kathi_mdgdOctober 2, 2013

Here are some of what 've made for my ggk's.

Made these from a t-shirt

Skort set

this shows the leg hem in the ones I made from the t-shirt,i cut it so I used the original hem,so I didn't have to make a new hem.

Made these next few for my ggs.

Adding a few cross stitch finishes here as well since the cs board on this site has no traffic over there.Hope that's ok.

Think that's enough for awhile.

Wow, you have been busy! Everything looks wonderful. I'm sure the kiddos will love their new clothes. Are they Christmas gifts?

No not for xmas,they are the "just because",.None of the ggk's live close by so i'm always making or buying stuff I think they'll like,and I don't do any of that expensive junk either like x-boxes etc.For toys I send stuff they have to use their imaginations,hands and eyes.

They love to get my "care pkgs",and I love to sew and am trying to use up some of my stash.

Thanks Donna for the compliment.

I also keep trying to get this board active again,as I know we have a lot of sewers out there.

Your pictures remind me of sewing I once did to use up fabric I had accumulated. Every winter I made stacks of shorts and t-shirts in varying children's sizes. In the Spring I gave them to a nun who worked in a very poor section of Cincinnati. She would distribute them to families who needed them.

In later years I made all sorts of pajamas for the St. Vincent hotel which took in homeless people, especially families . I double stitched everything as I knew they would be washed every day.
Once in a while I used a pattern for a really pretty little girl's nightie and always hoped it gave a tot a happy night.
