An Alabama Chanin Linden type top

I can very much appreciate the work that goes into AC clothing. Very few diy ones I've seen look nearly as good as theirs and this is truly shoddy in comparison. And yet I love it!

First attempt at hand sewing

I have so far to go to get good at this. I'm a bit ashamed to post. Wrong fabrics, too small design, cut wrong which I will try to fix what I did with a stem stitch up center. Still working on the bottom leaves.I will get better paint to transfer design next time.

Charlie's Angels

Happy Thanksgiving

Brody wasn't having ANY pictures taken.  But Scarlett, she showed him how to do it!  My fast phone shots could be improved upon, but at least we know who was here.

Copy Cat

Yes, I'm a copy cat. I saw this darling tote on Ravelry and pretty much just copied it except for her darling handles.

Christmas Projects

My daughter sent me a picture of some similar snowman on sale for $60 and asked if I could copy it.
So the biggest dilemma was the body.  My neighbor suggested a 2 liter pop bottle.  So I filled it with rice and padded around it.  I put a cardboard cake circle in the bottom, styrofoam ball for head, and covered it all in fleece.  The scarf was knit in 2x2 rib on my knitting machine, and the hat was made on the machine as well.

Kimono style pjs

I think this lol wrap pj top would be boring without those little Pom poms.

I hope I'm going to get a lot of use out of this shirt and that I won't end up having to chop off a half foot of it.  I like that it covers the rear.  But obviously it will not look good with regular slacks like this.  So what to wear with it?  And this was the first successful try at making undies - undies that stay under the rear without riding up cause I bought too big a size so it doesn't cut in the waist!  These stay put with no visible lines.  I ordered the lace from Sew Sassy and the spandex material as well.

The next shirt collar will incorporate this great tip forwarded to me by a buddy:

The Masked Woman

This has received the funniest responses I have ever had on a project, some so funny I nearly choked to death on a cracker laughing!
The design is from urban threads. I just thought it was pretty, world!  Figured my daughter might want it for Halloween. Nothing else going on here. Really!

Scarbucks Anyone

I got the design from here:
and it cut beautifully on my Cricut.  I hope Scarlett likes it as much as I do.
