Snow Day Sewing


Last week we had some wicked weather which was perfect for finishing sewing projects that have been languishing in my sewing room.

First up pj's for my son. The pattern is very old, it's Simplicity 2318, I've made it several times. The dark knight fleece fabric is leftover from a quillow I made for him. I hope he likes them.

The yoke on this poncho has been languishing for years. I initially made it and paired it with a solid gold colored fleece and it was a terrible combination so I took it apart and purchased a coordinating geometric to go with the gold fleece. I love that poncho and it's very warm. Almost like wearing a blanket. I then purchased this leopard print to go with the off white fleece. I don't love this one as much as the gold one but I will definitely wear it in these frigid temps. 

This is a very old pattern too, Butterick 5715.

And last but definitely not least I made slipper booties to go with my robe, I love them. The pattern is Simplicity 9456. I changed the tie from the back to the front because that just made more sense to me. I used thermal insoles, the soles are four layers, two fleece, thermal insoles and non-skid soles. They are so warm. I wore then for two days straight. I added 1/4 inch elastic and changed the ties from the gray pictured here to black, now they stay up.

The professional wedding pictures should be back soon. Until then happy sewing.
