Summer Projects

The girls and I have been trying to keep ourselves busy with fun projects this summer. We love the kid's scrapbooking classes at my work http://scrapbooks-etc.com/2009/ and the girls wanted some cute/crafty aprons to wear to class, so:

We came up with these. I love how they turned out. The patterns are from the book "retro aprons for kids", and the girls chose all their own fabrics and trims (all from Scrapbooks, Etc of coarse!). They really reflect their tastes and personalities.
Then it was on to more projects. Not only do we have amazing quilting fabrics, but we also have cotton flannels that I have been craving! I finally got some and made little "cuddle" quilts for the girls (inspired by the talented Heidi Lynn http://blog.totallyheidilynn.com/2010/06/05/tpc-june/). I die cut all the pieces with our quilter's dies, and they went together so fast. Celeste did a lot of the sewing on hers.


Celeste chose her own fabrics (above) from Riley Blake, Amy Butler, Michael Miller, Moda...


And I chose Sophie's fabric from Amy Butler with the beautiful Michael Miller floral on the back

And....

She really loves it!

Wow...those are some STUNNING projects! Your girls certainly take after you! Creative and a great eye for color and pattern combos. Think I can persuade you or one of them to come show me how to use my machine?! Ha :)
