Gift for my New Niece

My sister was expecting a baby, so I made her a bunch of items. She was born a little early but I got all the items to my sister in time. Check out what I made (I blurred the baby’s name for privacy). Patterns used: Butterick 5798 (Diaper bag, changing pad, sling), McCall’s 6485 (Cat), Lovey Dovey Kitty, …

I haven’t done any sewing since I finished my husband’s jacket. That is because it’s winter and it’s cold. My apartment is so drafty that my hands are always cold even though we have the temperature set to 72°F. I just can’t sew when my hands are cold. I hope to start sewing again soon, although we just keep getting more snow (and in March!). Anyway I have been making a list of items I want to make and Craftsy classes I want to take.

I was almost done with all these pirate costumes. I am sick. And now my machine stopped working!!!! I have tried cleaning it, there was after all enough wool fibers inside to make a scarf. But it still doesn’t work. I will have to take it to Sears to get it fixed but meanwhile I need a sewing machine!!!
