Emily’s Christmas Shirt and a gift

I finally feel like I might be turning a corner with my sewing projects.  I’ve gotten quite a few crossed off the old list, but then again, I seem to add another one each day. 

I decided it was a good idea at eleven one night to start Emily’s Christmas shirt.  It wasn’t a bad idea, the whole shirt from cutting the fabric and figuring the measurements to the finished shirt only took less than an hour.  And it fits!  At least she doesn’t care about what she wears like her older sister.  For now anyway…

I used the blueprints tutorial again, but left the elastic out of the sleeves.  I also added a contrast bottom to the hem.  I figured with this fabric combination she can wear it past Christmas.  How cute is it with jeans?! 

My next project had been on my list for a long time, I’m now wondering why I waited sooo long to make it?  It took all of 15 minutes and I think it’s quite handsome.  What is it you ask?  It’s a foot warmer for my brother for Christmas!  He spends a lot of time on the computer and always gets cold feet (it runs in the family, spending time on the computer and getting freezing cold feet that is).  I’ll be making more of these for sure, hope he likes it!

    =O I never thought about making one for my feet! I’ve been having the same problem lately working at my sewing machine! Great idea!

    That shirt is too cute! I bet it would look too cute for words, with pink tights and a jean skirt too!

    What did you fill your foot warmer with? I think that would be a great gift for my mom who also suffers with spending too much time on the computer and getting cold feet!

    That shirt is lovely. What fabric is it? The red and the pink are a great combination.

  6. So super cute! Thanks for the link to Blueprints. I go there all of the time but somehow missed this tutorial!

    P.S. The jeans tute should be up by Monday or Tuesday (everything seems to be taking triple the time these days…I’m sure you understand)!
