I'm a little behind...

I've been catching up on old posts, so make sure you scroll down.

Sewing again. Feels good.

It's been a while since I've done any serious sewing.  I've sewn a few Nursing 360 covers, and I made Lincoln his blessing pants, but that's pretty much it for the last couple years.

Jaime's new baby girl was a perfect excuse to try something new.  The baby skirts were just rectangles with a ruffle sewn on the bottom and a gathered waistline.  And I stitched some matching buttons on plain white onesies (I really wanted to try my hand at a freezer paper stencil, but our town failed to provide the necessary supplies).  Hair accessories came from my Sweet Whimsy stash.
 I did a little "tuxedo" ruffle effect on this one.
 But my favorite were the shoes.
I found the inspiration (and a link to a pattern) for these cuties on Jessica's Running With Scissors blog.  Hers are made of satin, and have more pleats.  But I thought mine turned out pretty incredible for a first try (okay, actually one of the shoes was a second try).

I might try to sew something for myself next...

Opening that box and finding these adorable baby goodies inside was the highlight of last week... besides having the baby. :)

I love you, friend. Let's plan a getaway/girls' vacation soon.
