Baby pants made from T-shirts

Old t-shirts make comfortable pants...

because I am using the hem on the shirt as the leg hem I need to move the pattern down to the next size...

here they are complete...if you already know how to sew pants these sew together in minutes!

this is the pattern I used

I am off to make more, they can be addicting to make!

Yo-Yo Pillow

I made this pillow using this tutorial I really like this tutorial and she explains it very well! I cut my circles about 8 inches in diameter.

I hand stitched the yo-yos together and then hand stitched them to the pink pillow fabric. These cute fabrics are from Walmart.

Enjoy the rest of the week!

Zakka Art QAL and an Alphabet Quilt
this is the link for a QAL done by hand....there is a video on the first tutorial if you are not sure how to sew by hand. This QAL just started and this is block #1.

This is an alphabet quilt I just started. The center blocks were part of  a fabric panel so I cut all the letters out and decided to make star blocks out of them. far this is my favorite one because I love the polka dot fabric...

Have a great Week!

It took me longer than expected to finish, but thats because I decided to hand quilt this sweet project and I have not hand quilted in a long time!

It's not perfect hand quilting, but it looks so pretty......
