C*Z*M Mareena

sewing for me!

Sewn from lycra french terry, the cuffs from Hilco ringel knit.  Embroidery from Urban Threads.  Darts added by me to try and fit the added feature that God gave me.

Pic of me, thats what I look like when I am clucky... watching a baby being born on TV. Will this feeling ever go away?

a one imke, two imke, three imke four... five?

Yes that is right, I made 5 imkes over the past few weeks.

Imke is by Farbenmix, and you can either buy the pattern serperatly, or you can buy it as part of Sewing Clothes Kids Love.  Its a wonderful versatile top for both girls and boys.

so my 5 are out of focus, but ill show you a close up of my favs.

and of course my girls versions.

The fabrics on these was Stella from Crafty Mamas, as well as some Campan and some other knits from Crafty Mamas.  Ribbon is Farbenmix and embroideries by Huups.

They did take me ages to put together and embroider, but the results are worth it!

whats in your stash?

So last week the girls got into my fabric.  Pulled the entire fabric stash out.  It should be noted that the husband was so kind to put it all back into the cupboard in perfect shoved style.

Opening the cupboard I noticed that there was an odd presence- something that is not usually in my stash.

Something beautiful and precious

and very cheeky!

The 3rd Annual Crafty Mamas Retreat!

And I have no photos!

I am a blogger and i didn't take any photos that I can share with you!

The reason for this is that the sewing that I did was mainly boring stuff!

Cant really take interesting pictures of what I made.

14 pairs of flannel PJ pants that I made from flannel that I picked up at Sl at the end of season sales.  Never again will I make PJ pants (famous last words hey!) but yet again- I think the kids wil never again need any more!

I also made some PJs out of a spandex rib knit from Crafty Mamas- and oh they are so lovely!  The boys wanted to wear them all week!  Really want to make a pair for me.

A nightie for the girls
2 nightie/ PJ sets for the girls

Go To dress

Ottobre top that Lily wont wear!  It has frills at the back, and in her 3yo wisdom she thinks that the frills go at the front, so it wont fit her properly.

So I have done some major stash busting.  My next project is some yarn work (knitting/ crochet) and also to make a top that fits me properly!

onto next Craft retreat- I am already planning for it!
