I've been a sewing fool lately with all the birthdays and showers that come with this time of year. I finally remembered to take some pictures of the projects I finished which makes giving them away a little easier. I should just take some time and sew something for myself.
Here is a tool belt I made for a good friend's son. He is in love with Handy Manny, so I thought a tool belt would be perfect. I had Nolan model the belt for me and I was a little nervous he wouldn't want to give it up but it irritated him so much he was relieved to get it off.
Don't be surprised if your son gets the same gift, this was a super simple sew. I think next time I might applique it with some tools or the initial of the boys name.
My other dear friend is having a little girl, very soon. So for her shower I made a burp cloth, blanket and onesie. Also very simple. Here are some tutorials all from the same crafty lady, that make it very easy if you'd like to learn how to sew these. The onesie, the blanket & the burp cloth.
I didn't even think to check the spelling of the name first, silly me. I soon found out that they are spelling it with a "k" and not a "c"...awkward. I felt like a huge idiot. I took it home and quickly turned it into this.
Nice save. Now I know to ALWAYS check the spelling first.
I also made a skirt for one of my nieces from this pattern that I didn't get a picture of. Also, very simple. I've got a couple of other projects I'm in the middle of that I'll show when they're finished, hopefully this week.
