Sew Liberated

Got a new sewing book in the mail a few weeks ago.
Big surprise, right!

So many great projects in there for kids!
Some are clothing and others are toys or activites.
A lot of the projects encourage creativity for your child.
Some are designed to get them to help with household tasks.
And just lots of open-ended play opportunites like a teepee, a homemade doll, a cape that reminds me of Little Red Riding hood....the list goes on of the things I can't wait to make!

I have been trying to use up some of my massive knit's out of control.
But cute.

I knew this first project would be quick and easy and who doesn't need another bib?
It's called "The All By Myself Bib" because it has no fasteners/velcro/snaps of any kind.
So once Preston is a bit bigger he can put it on by himself.
Right now he is in the "rip-off-my-bib-as-soon-as-mommy-puts-it-on" stage.
But this one DOESN'T COME OFF!!!!!!!
It's a pretty great bib and covers most of his front.
I did make a note to add a pocket next time which is the only way I think it can be improved!

And for my next choice I was needing to use up this RANDOM purple camo knit.
Whose idea was it to buy this?!?!?!
Her daddy will like it though.

This is the "Crossover Tee" and the "Pants-I-can't-remember-the-name-of."
Both super cute.
I did shorts instead of pants so she can wear them right now.

I should have put the pink trim on the bottom of the shirt and the bottom of the shorts though.
Oh well-next time!

I like the clothing patterns in this book because most of them are pretty unisex!

Can't wait to try some more out of this book...or maybe the 3 others I bought with it....
