Today's Sewing

Recycled Sweater Longies, Cashmere-Lined Ski Hat, Cashmere Wrist Warmers

Yesterday I did a lot of cutting and pinning, so today is a sewing day. I love having things all ready to feels like I'm accomplishing a lot when I can finish things. Yesterday I felt all unfinished around the edges because I'd cut things but not sewn anything.

Recycled Sweater Twirly Skirt in Crazy Patterns

I love the way this skirt turned out. I narrowed the top of the scalloped pattern I've been using, and it turned out very girly and feminine. It's fun to use all the patterns in the design.

Longies or Shorties?

I've been needing to make some more longies, so here's a pair...only I don't know if they will be longies or shorties. The legs are kinda short, so I guess it will depend on the baby. I like the waist/top of them. It's made from a cashmere turtle neck that was cut off a sweater. I often use them to make neckwarmers, but there's only so many neckwarmers that are useful! And I think it will be nice and snug on the baby's belly without binding. And of course, it's super soft!


  1. I love the sweater you chose for the longies. IMHO, the turtleneck waists are the best. They're more stretchy than elastic, so for an infant who wiggles on the changing table, they are easier to get on/off!

  2. Thanks! That means a lot to me, coming from someone who uses kids are way past that now!
