Fall Sewing Is Here....


I am about to start some fall sewing!! I really like the colors and textures of the fall fabrics. Corduroy is one of my favorite fabrics to sew....unusual, I know!!! Hopefully both Emily and Elisabeth will have an outfit made with some or all of the above fabrics.
I did not get a whole lot accomplished this week. Wayne was away all week on travel and I have been taking antibiotics for an upcoming root canal scheduled for this Tuesday. However I did squeeze in a little time on a sweet little baby dress. I put some hand embroidery on it earlier today while everyone was napping. I really enjoy doing hand embroidery.....there is something so therapeutic about it.
I also need to work on my crochet-edged baby bonnet directions for the class I am teaching. I have a rough outline on paper...now I need to go back and flesh it out and then type it in the computer. I like having nice handouts for my classes. I guess I seem to prepare for and teach classes the way I wish others did. I have only been to a couple of classes and they generally seem to be lacking in directions and "meat." I think if people are taking the time to attend they should learn something and have some good handouts so they can replicate the item at home. Am I the only one that feels this way????
Well, I think that about wraps up my week. I'll be back soon to share pictures of the baby dress and the items for the girls.

The only crafty-type classes I've been to are cake decorating classes, and there were not handouts because we had lesson books. I would think that it would be nice to have at least the instructions on how to make the item again at home, though. I'm looking forward to seeing your baby things!

Cindy, I agree with you about the classes. Good luck with yours. I absolutely love those fall fabrics. The colors (and cord) are so yummy. I cannot wait to see what you make up with them.

I have not been to any real craft classes. I did want to post and ask what kind of things you make for your girls for the fall. I have an 18 month old and I have found a love for sewing and would love to sew fall things, but need ideas. :)

Thanks everyone for the comments. I am anxious to get started on them...maybe tonight.

Casey...for the fall I like to make jumpers, skirts, light jackets, and dresses. Anything really works...for me it is more about the fall colors in fabrics and corduroy. Does that help any???

Casey said...

Yes that was helpful...but post some pictures also. :)
