There is all sorts of sewing going on in here! I made these jammies!

They are McCalls 5989. So cute, so cozy. I love them!

We also have been working out the details about our honeymoon! We want to go to Kona Hawaii! I can't wait!

hey there!

Oh hi! The wedding is coming along, we got our rings, they are lovely, I will show you soon! I am actually back because I have felt a huge drain in my creativity/sewing. I got a lot of cool sewing stuff for Christmas but the motivation unfortunately did not come with it. And last year, I made a new year's resolution sewing drawing that I stuck to pretty well, so I thought I would make another one this year and see if it helps me stick to my guns. For some reason, posting what I make seems to motivate me to make more! It has been really helpful that Jo Anns has been selling the patterns for $1 or $1.99. How can you say no when they are so cheap! Now I just need to pick out some fabrics!

So, here is the list. Let's see what I can knock off! The first two are from the Colette book.

The ruffle front shirt is McCall's 6518 . I am thinking this would be cute in a fun cotton, like a cow boy or cow girl dress.

Next, is simplicity 2209. It is a Lisette pattern. I really like the dress, it looks relatively simple but adaptable to be more like a shirt/tunic.

Then I have a super cute pattern for a peter pan collared dress. It is Burda style 7494 I LOVE peterpan collars!

Then I saw this strapless dress on a mannequin at Jo Anns and it looked really cute even super simple in a cheap satin. I thought it might be fun to try this in a cotton or even a cute gold satin for my wedding trip! It is Simplicity 0489

Then its back to Simplicity 2209, the Lisette pattern, cause I want to make the jacket too. I found this super cute spider web fabric that I think would make a super cute light jacket!

And then there is this super cute pattern for shorts. All this working out I have been doing lately, it might be nice to actually be able to wear shorts on my honeymoon! So I thought I would try making a couple of pairs of these. It is McCalls 6403

I could also use some new pj's! I found this cute pattern for a robe and pj pants the one I have is McCalls 5989, I think I am going to make the robe just out of a soft knit and lose the ruffle cause I don't really like it. I am going to make the pants out of some cute different flannel. I think I might try making the shorts too, because for some reason lately I have been HOT when I sleep!

And then, something I have been wanting to do for awhile is make a new quilt. I found a super cute pattern for a spiderweb quilt and I am going to make that for our house.

Wow, there you have it! This is what I am going to attempt to make this season! Wish me luck!! :)
