Sewing, Sewing, and More Sewing

What a wonderful, busy (but relaxing) 4-day weekend we had! And I even found enough time to complete a few projects and start a few more.

First up - more sewing for the Disney trip. These three were in some form of compeltion before this weekend, and I am so happy that I was able to get them all done (I really don't like having that many partially complete projects at one time!)

CarlaC's Easy Fit Pants (from You Can Make This) - These really are easy!! I can't wait to make more of these for Megan.

Bloomers (Simplicity 2872) - These will go under the Patchwork Twirl Skirt

Patchwork Twirl Skirt - Wow, was this a lot of cutting and sewing! As I was making it I kept thinking I'd never make another one. But now that I'm done, I'm already planning the next one (kind of like running marathons - ha ha ha!)

This weekend we bought Megan her first pillow - a little travel pillow that fits just perfect on her bed. So of course I had to make her a pillow case. I'm so happy with how this turned out!! I was really afraid I had cut the fabrics too small, but it fit perfectly. And this time I used a different method to put it together than I usually use - so much easier and quicker! I'll be using this method from now on.

I also found a little time to begin a quilt - the same style as my Seashell quilt, but a little smaller (more like a baby quilt size.) Hopefully I'll have a completed top to show off soon.
