How is it that I have had two months worth of projects and haven't blogged any of them? Oh yeah...I have four young kids. That explains a multitude of things. Anywho, here is a photo dump of projects that I won't take the time to fully blog. Because I have four young kids. Let's begin.
Pattern testing is always fun and I did a couple for Dandelions n' Dungarees. The dress is one I did before my last blog post, but which I seem to have neglected to blog about. That was pretty silly of me, as I love the pattern. It's the Girls' Fashion Basics. I made the dress for Blue Eyes and it came together so quickly and nicely that I made a top for Pink Blur.

|I added belt loops but she refuses to wear it with a belt.|
|Here's the extra top , also made with fabric from Girl Charlee, here. The skirt was a quick self draft.|
Once the dress pattern was done there was a call for another Dandelions n' Dungarees test pattern. This one was the Simply Sweats and Shorts pattern. Since the test I have made Blue Eyes four pairs of short from this pattern. The kid has plenty of school uniforms but was out of luck with play clothes.
|The pants fabric came from a knitfix bag.|
|This adorable little monkey doesn't like to sleep and keeps me on my toes|
|I love watching him play with Scooby Doo|
|Omni Tempore shirt from Sofilantjes and fabric from KNITorious fabric. I saw the panel on their B/S/T group on Facebook and had to have it.|
|And the back.|
|Video Game also got in on the LOTR fabric love with the Brindille & Twig bodysuit pattern. He's my precious.|
|Ever the model.|
|Blue Eyes chose the modifications on this dress. Fabric is here.|
Aside from sewing things I started going to an oil painting class. I have scheduling difficulties so I haven't finished the class, but this was from the first day.
This shirt was made from the Cecilia Puff Tee. Now that I have dabbled in custom knits I must now sew up ALL the panels!
|She-Ra is way cooler than He-Man. Blue Eyes wore this to Field Day at school. Short must be knee length, so I whipped out these babies from the Simply sweats shorts.|
|Since taking this picture I have made a couple of adjustments.|
|Blue Eyes whips out her model stuff.|
|Her version of Blue Steel. he loves that pocket.|
