Recently Made : :

Today I decided to stop the house tour and spare us all of an overload of dining room pictures and share some of the things that have been made recently in my new sewing room!

First up, a new Fox Pillow -- this one with a fabric fox and linen combo!!

Linen Fox Pillow

It's an 18" sq and I do love the linen for this project. It is my contribution for a Woodland themed nursery in the works!!

He or she, hmn? looks very formal in our vintage chair, don't you think?!

I also have a couple of new things for my etsy shop!

Three Little Birds Pillow

A Three Little Birds Pillow. This one was made for Simply Handmade Magazine's Sewing issue for Fall 2012.

Bird Pillow in Simply Handmade Sewing

Made with one of my favorites -- Summerlove by Pat Bravo! You can find this little pillow available in my etsy shop  here!

I decided to turn a dress I had started for Haila into an apron for my etsy, as well. Originally this was going to be a Summer dress for my girl. She picked out the sweet pink and Yuwa fabrics herself and we were both excited! As time went on we both changed our minds and agreed this week that it would make a sweet half apron for tea parties, pretend play, and dress up for a little girl who loves pink and horses!

Sweet Apron Details

It's completely reversible and I do love that ruffle and those swirly stitch details!

I'm off to work on more orders!! Happy sewing! Maureen

It's from the Critter Community Collection by Suzy Ultman for Robert Kaufman. I just did a search with me sponsors and they are all sold out. Mine came from Cotton Blossom Farms, but maybe you can try etsy?
