Another Hobby of Mine

Sewing.blog-post-imageToday I wanted to share a little about another hobby of mine...sewing!

I have been sewing for many years.  I took a bit of a break when my girls were were born.  I just didn't have the time with working outside the home and other mom "duties".  It's such a good feeling to have this skill and now that I have a little more time, I can sew occasionally for Lyla and Mia.

Growing up, my mom made most of my clothes including some of my prom dresses.  She had been sewing since she was a young girl.  I learned some of the basics from mom but  I enrolled in homemaking in 9th grade and there was a lengthy unit on sewing.  I remember that we had an assignment to make a dress or "pantsuit" (remember those?) and then model it in a spring style show at school.  That was pretty cool.

My machine brand of choice all these years has been Singer.  My little workhorse now is the Singer Quantum Stylist 9960.  I love it!

Here are some of my projects from the last few years...

I have made quite a few of this style of dress for Lyla. 

Lyla-dressHere are two "matching" dresses that I made for Lyla and Mia.

Dress-1

 

Dress2

And, here are their Christmas dresses for 2017.

Dresses-mia-lyla-christmas

I'm thinking about trying this style for Mia next.  Lyla loved the bees in her storybooks so I found this fabric especially for her.

Lyla-dress-2Below you can see Mia's nursery quilt while it was still in progress.

Quilt-1And, this one is a jelly roll quilt for my Mom.

Jelly-roll-momLooking forward to my next project!  I hope to prepare some fabric and stitch it up soon.  I miss having my mom to ask for advice but I'm so grateful that we were able to share this common love.  

Thanks for reading about my "other" hobby that has been part of my life for so long and I'll see you in the next post!
