WIP: some finished, some not...

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that the kids and I are trading one island for another and going to Hawaii next week to see my husband.  He's been there most of the month for work and this is the perfect opportunity to squeeze in a little vacation since the kids and I haven't been off Kodiak Island since Nov. 2011!

I've spent the last week sewing clothes for my daughter.  We don't own a lot of summer clothes because it just doesn't get hot enough to need them.  My kids spend most of the summer in jeans and t-shirts.  So I wiped up 2 pairs of shorts and a pair of capris using a pattern from  the book Little Girls, Big Style.


I also made two dresses. The first a pattern by Indygo Junction calle the Angelic Tunic.


The second is a Paper Fan dress by Anna Maria Horner.

After seeing several different hearts pop up on Instagram and reading about Amanda's, I couldn't get it out of my head!  So I used what I had and made one.  I cut 4 different Moda Candy Bars in to 2.5" squares and sewed them into rows.  They are not the usual fabrics that I'm drawn to but they have a sweet, romantic quality that seemed perfect for this project.  I don't have backing or batting on hand since this wasn't a planned project so for now it's just going to hang in my stairway as is.

  1. What pretty projects! I especially like the heart quilt. Sweet and romantic is a perfect description!

  2. Your kids clothes are cute. I too have been thinking about that same heart quilt too!
