My Project Pile

 So this is what I've been up to lately. Here is my pile of things to sew as of yesterday morning. The pink and white material will be summer dresses for my girls. The blue flower material is pj shorts. I'm getting a head start on my summer projects since we will be moving in May. I'm not sure how busy I will be with a new house. I will probably be posting more home decorating projects then. The right side of the photo is my pile of burp clothes and passy straps. They are always good to have on hand for baby showers. I found the material on sale at Hobby Lobby, you can't beat $3 a yard!  
 Last night I finally started working on my pile. Here are some finished products. Cute shorts, burp clothes and passy straps. 
Here is a baby shower gift I made. I love it! If I had a little man he would be wearing this for sure! Sometimes the hardest part of a project is just getting started! I have found that the assembly line method works the best for me. A few days ago I cut all my patterns out, and the burp clothes and passy straps. Then I used my serger on my shorts and dresses a few days later. A few days after that I finished the shorts and made the burp clothes and passy straps. I did all my ironing at once too. It makes it a lot easier. Now all I have left is to finish the dresses and hem two pairs of pants for my husband. After that I will be sharing some more tutorials. Happy Sewing! 


  1. Couldn't agree more... The hardest part of a project is getting started for me too and an assembly line speeds things up considerably. Love the little boy's outfit...
