WIP Wednesday

December sewing was crazy and I didn’t/haven’t taken any good pictures of my makes. When January started I felt like I needed to take a break. From all the sewing! But then I got bored. Ha! I just like doing things. So I’ve slowly been getting back into my projects. I’ve got a billion things in my head I’m hoping to get going on soon but it turns out I can only do one thing at a time. It’s slow going but I’m excited.

And I guess the title isn’t totally accurate. I’m also posting some of the stuff I made in December that just hasn’t been photographed yet.

Warning: iPhone photos ahead!


Christmas photo! I love my girls and their cheesy smiles. I wasn’t planning on doing matching jammies this year but then all of Ben’s family was doing it so I joined the club. I also signed up for the #sewfamilyjammies challenge…but this was the only picture I got of all of us wearing our jammies-so I completed the challenge but never posted about it. Mom fail. I guess “Sewist Fail” might be more appropriate.


But here are my pajama pants: the Hudson Pants from True Bias in fabric from Raspberry Creek Fabric. I don’t have a ton to say about our pants (I did love the pattern)…but I’ll probably do a separate post on them just for proof that everyone really did get pajama pants.


Sorrynotsorry for posting this picture of Ben but it makes me laugh. AND it features the two things I made him for Christmas: his pajama pants (also Hudson Pants) and his button up (Simplicity 1544). I do want to have a post on the shirt for sure but it might not happen until I try making him another one. I will say that he is so sweet and he wears this shirt often.


I mentioned this in my last post but it’s always been a dream of mine to have my mom embroider fabric that I could turn into a dress. While in Utah during the holiday break, I found some Robert Kaufman linen at Hobby Lobby and I snagged it so that I could have my mom embroider it right away. I love the embroidery design we found and the colors and I’m just so darn excited! I still have to cut out the bodice and facing but that’s basically it and I can start sewing.


Hey! A start on my goal of making more stuff for out home! This particular hand embroidery will go in the girls’ room. I saw this quote and loved it. I drew up a design and worked on it for a few hours before I decided I hated it. So I scrapped it and redrew this and I love it so much more. I think it’s going to turn out really cute (and also maybe a little wobbly but whatever).


I saved the best for last! My La Passa is officially quilted!!! I can’t tell you guys how excited I am about this! My mom did such a fabulous job and I can’t wait to see it in person! Just binding and this thing is DONE (just, you know, 4 years later). You can definitely count on a post with some good pictures-especially of my mom’s quilting-as soon as it’s finished!

Aside from these I have a stack of 5 patterns with fabric ready to cut into and I’ve also (covering my eyes!) started another English Paper Piecing quilt.

Okay. Now I’m seeing it.

I am crazy.
