Sewing for others...

My string quilt blocks for Val at Pink Please! She's collecting blocks to be made into a quilt for Heroes Helping Heroes, which serves the cancer community in her home town.
I couldn't help but join in as I've lost both my parents and 2 sisters to cancer. These blocks were fun to make and going to a great cause!
Practicing for the cover of Vogue, is Elyse modeling the jumper I made using Amy Butler's corduroy and oliver + s pattern Music Box jumper. The fabric is yummy soft! And o + s patterns are awesome!
And I just had to show the final pic of Maddy's quilt in it's home. I'm hoping the stitching is tough because there seems to be a lot of monkeys jumping on this bed!
This skirt is super easy using the tutorial from Make It and Love It. I used knit yardage, but the tut shows how to make this cute skirt using a store-bought T shirt.
So easy, I made 2!
Also made a little something for myself this week. Easy robe using Simplicity pattern 9330 and Loulouthi flannel.
I wish you could feel how soft this flannel is! In the Winter, I've been known to stay in my robe much of the day, sewing. This will get some use!

  4. Thank you for the idea! I feel so dumb - my daughter could totally use a robe, and I was going to turn that cute flannel into another pair of pj pants for her? NO WAY. Now she'll really get a great Christmas gift she'll remember!

    The Amy Butler corduroy jumper is adorable! As are the girls!
