Today, I took some projects down to Strawberry Patches. They are models for store patterns and fabrics.
I have the most fun job. You know by now how much I love to sew.
Add to that, someone to pick out the cutest coordinating fabrics,
give me adorable patterns to work with and the best quality fabric money can buy.
I get to have all the fun.
Don't you wish you had a cute little boy to make this for...I do.
My boys are all to big for the cuteness of these PJ's too. They are so stylish with a coordinating orange collar and pocket.
Then there is this adorable dress.
Completely reversible to the cutest bitty check you have ever seen
Besides the projects for SP, I have been able to sneak in a couple projects of my own.
Emmy loved her ladybug bib so much and so did her Mommy...so much she would wash it out by hand so it would be ready for Emmy's next
Soooo, I made a Strawberry bib.
These are my own design and I have got it down pat now.
I made 2 of these. The first one had red lettering and it didn't show up...well guess what? Green doesn't show up either.
In person you can see it a little better than it shows in the picture.
Here's a closeup. My embroidery machine is still humming along.
Lastly, I wanted to show a pillow I started while I was in San Diego last month.
Remember you can click on it to enlarge. I did a hand blanket stitch on the design and hand quilted a cross-hatch on the background. It was tedious, but I love the way it turned out. It will go in my blue trailer along with the Dresden Quilt that I need to get back to one of these days.
I used vintage buttons for the center of the flowers,
and covered big buttons for the back.
I have a disclaimer here. I saw this on Pam Kitty Morning's blog and just fell in love. So I
replicated it. You can click on her link above to see the one I
copied loved so much. There is a link for Late Bloomer where you will find the pattern too.
It's called "Key to My Heart" . I need to add my key yet.
Well, all I can say is Pam Kitty Morning fabric has the key to my heart right now. I love it sooo much and am using it almost exclusively for decorating my blue trailer, which we will be working on again in a couple of weeks. I cannot wait to show you some pictures of the transformation.
I have even talked Mr. SS into adding some red to the outside.
So it will be our Red, white and blue trailer (and yellow too).
God is Good!!
Life is Good!!
