Let the Sewing Begin

One good thing about not going out of town for Thanksgiving, I did get started on my Christmas projects. This is simplicity 2318, one down three to go. The brown stretch knit trim is courtesy of Trudi.

This too is from the Trudi stash, I felt it only fitting to make her DD something from this super cute fleece. The pattern is McCalls 6225, super fast and easy.

I didn't have enough fabric for the belt so I used some of my left over purple fleece.

Another plus is that I went to both JoAnns and Hancock's black Friday sales. I got my free scissors from JoAnns and cleaned up on the fleece at Hancock's, it was on sale for 1.99/yd.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

You've done a lot of sewing. Cute kid's garments. I love your brown top. I would wear that with winter white pants for a very elegant outfit.
