Saturday's sewing

close-up of Daisy

Today has been quite productive I used  Jalie 2805 to make my DGD Alana a little turtle/polo neck top.  I found a great website for free and reasonably priced embroidery designs here.  This lovely Daisy duck is one of Alana's favorite characters from the TV shows so of course I had to make it for her.  It actually took longer to embroider Daisy than it did to make the top.

I have also started some squares to convert into a quilt for my friend Anne's daughter who is expecting her baby in a couple of weeks.  Anne said she wanted Winnie the Pooh theme for the baby's room.  I found some nice Tigger fabric which I will use for the background and then use the squares like I did with Alana's quilt.

This is what I did today while I was working on another project - they look really sweet and they too were free fromt he same web site.

Last but not least, please don't yawn, but I used up some more of the blue, and blue and white stripe to make another version of McCalls 6435 - this time I used the stripe for the top and inserted a metal zip between the seam to make it a little different.  I will take one of these tops to London with me to keep there.  This is the problem living between two houses, so this way I have one at each.


  1. You are certainly a busy lady. Love the t-shirt with Daisy Duck and the Winnie the Pooh is fabulous.

    Another great top. You certainly are getting your money's worth out of that pattern.

  2. Wow! you are sewing up a storm. Darling tiny t-shirt for DGD. And all those cute embroidery designs. And then your own clever T's. Nice work!
