Happy Easter & Sewing!!

We have had a wonderful Easter weekend complete with Easter baskets, egg coloring and bison steaks on the grill!  My rockin' husband worked on our chicken coop so that we can get some chickens within the next few weeks.  Even the weather was nice!  Amidst all the fun, I still managed to get a little sewing in :)

Here are some pads for a customer in Norway. They are natural bamboo velour with colored fleece backing.

A set of pads for a coop order that I am woking on right now. 

Tonight, I will be sewing trainers like mad!!  I have 35 to get done in the next 10-14 days!!!

Custom Diapers

I happily finished an order of custom diapers tonight.  Diapers are time consuming for me, but they are the product that brings me the most satisfaction.  So, without further ado, this is what I have been working on all week... up, stocking some trainers, knitting, Yoga Meltdown, and a bubble bath!

Good Night!!

Dyeing Fabric

It occurred to me recently that I should really make some time to keep up with this blog!  I guess I will start with today.  This afternoon my two older girls helped me dye some fabric.  We started mixing colors and I realized I didn't have my camera, so oh well, we didn't take pics of the process.  There was no way that I was going to step away from the dye to get it. That could have very quickly turned into a disaster!!! So, I will just post pics of the end product.  We dyed some t-shirts for their baby sister, because she is quickly outgrowing all of her clothes and we also did some cuts of bamboo velour.  One of which I am over-dying for a custom diaper right now because the colors just didn't come out dark enough.  I am excited to sew up the bamboo velour into a diaper or two and some pretty mama cloth.  I am extremely happy with the colors :)
