Christmas Projects

  No matter when I begin Christmas sewing, it's never soon enough. Maybe next year will be better. I mostly sew for my little granddaughter, but I do try to do a few things for the boys every now and then. It's getting harder to find things to make for them since they are getting past the embroidered shirt phase. :(

 My main project is always a dress for Shelby. Her mom liked this style, and so did I. The problem was finding a pattern - which I didn't. I finally found a very old basic dress pattern for girls dated 1960. I used it, added some sleeves, and made the bib part myself. Fabric is green corduroy from Chez Ami.  I love how it fits her so I may make a summer dress out of the same pattern. 
 I also wanted Shelby to have one casual outfit to wear at Christmas. She has to wear uniforms to school so that cuts down on my Christmas sewing a whole lot. The design is from Planet Applique. Fabric is red polka dot corduroy from Chez Ami.
  Our youngest grandson loves anything I do for him. They are all Duck Dynasty fans so this was only appropriate even though it took me hours to do. There was lots of cutting on the applique, but it turned out so cute. Design is from Applique Junkie. We have quite a combination of characters here! LOL
 Almost forgot, I had one small order from Shelby to embroider her AG doll's kitten stocking. 
 I actually have some more projects, but I will save them for another post. Join me at the linky party over at Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom. It's a good way to get ideas and meet more blogging friends.
 I'm also joining the linky part at Sew Many Ways.  Lots of neat ideas there also!
 Thanks for looking, but comments are always welcome too!

Merry Christmas!

 Merry Christmas to anyone that reads this! I do plan to start posting more. I just have to get in the mindset to do it. I love reading blogs, and I hope a few people will enjoy reading mine.
  This picture is borrowed from the Branson Tourish Center. We went to see the play "The Miracle of Christmas" there in November. It was absolutely awesome! The scenes were just this beautiful!
 If you ever get the chance to see it, please go. We also saw "Joseph" in September. The next one coming to Branson, MO is "Jonah". 
 I pray blessing for all of my blogging friends!
