No More Snorlax

I am retiring from making Snorlax themed items. Yes, it was fun making the baby onesies for my sister-in-law as they announced the gender of their child-to-be back in August. Then I made a matching T-shirt for the Dad-to-be's birthday. And then a baby blanket shaped like Snorlax was requested. Originally, my brother wanted a large version of the baby blanket for himself.

Until I showed him the famous Snorlax beanbag chair posted on Deviant by SmellenJR (She has a bit of a how-to on this page if you want to re-make your own). Then he decided that he wanted a Snorlax beanbag chair instead.

I finished it Christmas Eve. It has a few flaws, but despite those flaws, I am pretty stoked on how it turned out.

That being said...no more Snorlax.


Finished cat sweaters!

These sweaters were finished in time to head to CVS and make digital photocards this year.

I hope that everyone had a lovely Christmas, and to those celebrating Chanukah, I hope you enjoy this last night!



Christmas Sweaters for the cats

I've been working on matching Christmas sweaters for Molly and Sarah Jane. Once they're made, we are hoping to get a picture of them in their sweaters for our holiday cards this year.

Here are the shots in progress.

What are you doing for holiday cards this year?


Yet another Birthday Present for a friend

I made this tunic shirt as a birthday present for my friend at the beginning of November. I wanted to make sure she received it in the mail before I posted it on my blog.

I traced around a large T-shirt for sizing, as she and I are not the same size.

This is the second time (Day 16 of Me Made June) I used The Sewing Convert's tutorial on making the One Hour Caftan. While I originally like the other one I made, I made the sleeves too long, and it ended up going to Goodwill after a few months. This one I drastically shortened the sleeves.

I completely fell in love with the fabric and design combination for this piece. So... I went back to JoAnn Fabrics, bought more fabric, and basically made a dress version of this for myself. Once I get a decent picture of me modeling the dress, I'll post more about it.

Have you ever made a gift for someone else that you pretty much ended up duplicating?


A finished crochet piece

A few months back, I had started this cute "Chevron Lace Cardigan" way back at the end of August. I am proud to say that it is finally finished! I absolutely love this cardigan, and if I didn't have so many other projects on needles / sergers / machines, I would probably start a second cardigan.

Here are some pictures. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Have you finished a long-term project recently? If so, what was it?
