Keeping it real sewing

Just to prove that not all sewing around here is perfect...

One totally squint and wonky hot water bottle cover!

It doesn't matter though, the new owner (Rascal) loves it and woke with a huge smile this morning! Rascal helped to choose the fabric although she didn't know what it would be for. I'm really enjoying letting her have more and more input in my sewing projects and she's loving it too!

Its made with minky and is super super soft, so nice to cuddle!

I've also been sewing for Scallywag. He has practically lived in the corduroy dungarees that I made him during the Kids Clothing Week Challenge, so I've been meaning to make him another pair for ages. I love them, especially the cute feature train fabric that I used for the pocket detail. Also loving the cute turn ups. I meant to do that the last time, but I accidentally cut the legs too short (ooops!)

Again, these dungarees were very loosely based on ikat bag's awesome shortalls tutorial

  6. Those overalls are AWESOME! I like the pocket detail and the turn-ups look great, but I am really impressed with the contrasting facing/lining on the straps.
