Exciting!!

I am excited to announce that a large group of sewers within Washington State are joining together to sew for children in need.  As we start, we are sewing dresses, shorts and skirts with t-shirts for these precious little ones!

We will be making pillowcase style dresses: emphasizing sizes Baby, Extra Small, Small and Medium. If you would like our sizing charts and armhole templates please send an email to suzannesewdilghtful@gmail.com  Here is an example of the pillowcase style dress…


We will also be doing t-shirt style dresses


Here is a link to the t-shirt tutorial

Another option will be skirts (both cotton knit and cotton woven fabric) and tops and we will have sizing and tutorials up soon but here is the idea…


Our Motto

Dolls

Yesterday I made some dolls using this tutorial http://sewdelightful.blogspot.com/2012/02/doll-tutorial.html   I did choose to make the dolls out of brighter fabrics… pinks and blues rather than the dark fabrics in the tutorial.  I love making each little doll different and allowing her personality to shine through.  These dolls can go into the Swag bags for Operation Christmas Child or along with dresses.

Here are my creations…

Bounty Bags for Boys

This weekend I decided it was time to make some  bags for the boys.  I love the fabric that I was able to buy at a Thursday Sale online at Fabric Outlet in California!!  What fun to use the same idea as the Swag Bags for girls but make Bounty Bags for Boys…  I also got some hot wheels at an setae sale so will have some extra special things to include in these bags!

Scarves

I am also making scarves to go along with the swag bags for older girls.  I will use pretty fabric and roll the hems on all sides.  Today I was playing with some vintage linens and used them as the ends of one scarf.  I also added a little touch of lace to the ends of a second scarf.  I am making the scarves from about 54" long to to 63" long and 8" or  9" wide.  Here are the first two I have made.

Some items I am making for Swag Bags

These are some of the items I am making to go along with the bags…


I am making the dolls in bright colors… orange, blue, purple and pinks instead of blacks and browns
although the tutorial shows the blacks and browns… I think the brights are more fun!!
Here is a link to the tutorial

The necklaces are so simple made with charms and beads

I will be putting up the instructions for the felt animals and the teddy bear soon
Stay tuned!!

Thank you for visiting!!
