Sunday Sewing

Over the weekend Alex was out of town on a business trip and my son, the other Alex :) was busy doing what 21 year old boys do sooooooo I had the whole weekend to myself.  What's a girl to do with all that time on her hands????   You guessed it ----SEW.  I stayed indoors, snug and warm , all weekend just my sewing machine and I.  Oh and the dogs of course :)  They didn't mind  at all that  I watched chick flick after chick flick as long as I stopped long enough to fill their bowls  with breakfast and dinner :)  I thought I would share with you today all that I got accomplished.  I even made something totally new.  I will save that for last. 
First another darling pattern from ElfPop.  This pattern is called Saffron.  I just love her little bob haircut. 
I added the little white flower and cherry overalls.
Next I worked on a few Crinkle Taggie Blankets

And lastly I tried my hand at making this sweet "Lovey Dovey" using a new pattern that I purchased from Abby Glassenberg. 
The pattern includes directions to complete four lovies--a kitty, a bear, a puppy and the bunny.  I just loved this idea--a sweet little animal face attached to a soft blankie body.  I thought they would make a perfect first toy for babies to hug and hold.  This was the first time I attempted to sew a pattern that included a head gusset.  It was a little tricky for me but I think I got the hang of it.  I am sure after a few more of these cuties I will have it mastered. 

Now I just need it to stop snowing so that I can get to the fabric store to purchase the right colors to try the other lovies.  Now that Alex is home I see a trip to JoAnn Fabric in his future ;)   Happy Wednesday everyone!!!
