Fall Jackets

Fall Jackets

Well, finally all the fall jackets have been completed and I am going to get the pictures posted. I hope noone gets bored with all the chocolate brown corduroy. I seem to be in a chocolate kind of mood this fall. All the jackets are chocolate brown corduroy but are lined with different jackets-- something i felt suited that particular child.

First up is Wyatt's jacket. It is lined with a cute cowboy print. I think it is a Michael Miller print but don't hold me to it.

Next up is Dylan's jacket. it is also the chocolate corduroy and line with a sweet puppy dog print.

Next, is Madison's jacket. Of course, I bet by now you know this is chocolate corduroy. it is lined with a chocolate and pink corduroy.
And lastly is Emma Kate's jacket. Again it is chocolate brown corduroy and this time it is lined with brown and white gingham.
Well, I will have to figure ou how to load the phots from photobucket. Thanks for being patient til I figure it out.

Till later,

It is feeling like fall here today for sure. Temperature is in the 50's. I much prefer spring time.

We went to the pumpkin patch for Tripp's birthday today. The kids all had fun and we all got a pumpkin. The kids did the train ride and played putt putt golf. so hard to believe he will be 7 years old next week. He is a sweet little boy.

As soon as I get a picture of the last fall jacket I will get pictures posted.

I have gone to work full time so my sewing will slow down but I am sure I will be able to squeeze in some sewing.

till later

Fall Sewing

I have had a busy little sewing spurt recently. I made a few outfits for Madison and a couple of things for Wyatt. I finally finished the 4th and final fall jacket.

First is a pants outfit for Madison that I made this week. The pants are a soft stretchy velour and and the t shirt is a knit I got on the bargain table at Walmart a while back.

Next, is a knit dress also for Madison. The fabric is from Chez Ami. the fabric did not have enough stretch to do the neck band from self fabric so I used a rib knit. The pattern is a Kwik Sew tshirt pattern. I shortened the pattern to about 3 inches below the armhole and added gathered panels for the skirt.

Next up is a shirt and jeans for Wyatt. The shirt pattern is the Comfyall pattern from Sewbaby. I also found this denim on the $2 table at Walmart back in the spring. These are size 18 months.
