30 minute Friday
Well, another week has gone by, and I have finished a few more Christmas gifts!
Monday: I continued working on my niece's vest. I got the armhole bindings, side seams and hem done.
Tuesday: My niece's little vest is done. I only had to attach the collar and snaps. It turned out real cute! In the first photo below, you can see the undercollar that I cut out of a cotton print. This helped to reduce the bulk in the collar area. I also used the same fabric to make the binding for the armholes.
Wednesday: The robe was started. I chose to work on all the small parts: the belt, the belt loops, and the pockets. Once these are assembled, the rest of the project will go quickly.
Thursday: The shoulder seams were sewn, the sleeves installed and the side seams done. Almost done!
Friday: I had to sew early today before working out - the children are home from school because of the weather. I did get the robe done! With only the facing and hems to finish, it was pretty easy. Here it is:
Next week, pajamas for my son!
Parting Shot: Ice. We're having quite an ice storm here today. What looks like fur in the photo below is actually the grass of my front lawn encased in ice. We're very fortunate that we still have power right now - over 300,000 people in my state do not. Let's pray the power companies will be able to get out and fix those lines.
