Sewing Again!

I have been sewing up a storm again... it isn't that often I actually get my sewing machine dusted off lately. It is hard to find the time with Logan, and especially since my machine is in the garage, and it is COLD out there... but this week, I have found the time. And I made this beauty for Cyan for her Pilgrim/Native American Thanksgiving Homeschool Party. I will get a better picture of it soon... I haven't hemmed the apron, the top of the apron still needs to be finished and she took off her cap, but man... she looks so cute!
We also made sillouettes of our kids. I think I am going to minuturize these and put them in nice frames for the grandparents for Christmas. It will be hard to get Logan, but what a sweet gift it would make! (I am surely going to do this for my own home...)

And here is my sweet girl, in her pilgrim outfit, with her Native American trading beads that she just made in a repeating pattern, and a big grin. :)

It's looks like it was a delightful celebration! And she looks so much like her mama.

Aw it's so pretty and she's just a doll!
Have you decided to homeschool long term?

I love the silouette idea. That turned out great.

How did you make the silhouettes?

I'm totally in awe of your talent.

Thank you so much everyone! It was a great party. I think the best we have had yet. We had very happy little pilgrims and indians at the end... and they learned a little something too. :)

Jenni, I made them by setting a flash light on a table across from a white peice of paper... and setting a chair between the two. Then copying down the sillouette... as fast as possible. Becuase it is really hard to stay still. Then you cut it out, and flip it over (so you don't see any of the pencil marks on the side you are displaying).

That is about it. Hope that helps!
