Sew What?: April

I have actually done quite a bit of sewing this month but really don't have much to show for it it seems.

I made both of the kids' birthday party outfits. This is a bad picture of Claire, but it is the best I got of the outfits. Claire's top is a Children's Corner Charlotte top (with added ruffle b/c it was too short) and Portabello Pixie ruffle pants. David is wearing a Children's Corner Johnny romper. I could make this thing in my sleep! I finished them both up at the midnight hour ... literally. I hate it when I do that.

Both of the kids got matching Easter bunny outfits too. David's outfit is another Johnny romper and Claire's dress is another Portabello Pixie pattern-Gracie.

Here is a better picture of Claire's dress. It's really cute, but a pain to iron. I am glad the Easter is over!

I did manage to applique a ton of stuff this month. 3 Rosie Posie rompers that my sweet friend Melissa handed down from her Big D.

A cute alligator for summer ... even though we are not Gator fans. Uncle Jon will be proud. (BTW, this is the reverse side of David's birthday outfit.)
A cute whale for summer. This is the reverse side of David's bunny outfit ... I love it. 2 outfits in one!

You made these yourself?! Bravo! I wish I could sew like that. My mom could, but the gene for that definitely didn't pass along to me.
