Random sewings

A smattering of sewing this week with two custom orders and a bridal shower. Nothing like jumping back in after a vacation! My mom requested a tote bag for a friend they are visiting in Napa Valley. She gave no color or design request so I choose a vintage vines fabric I have had for a while with an Ikea stripe fabric inside.

Next up-a custom big 3 birthday shirt with pink!

The little girl's birthday was today-hope she likes the dress! Happy Birthday Nina.

And finally, the bridal shower. I've been wanting to make the napkins from Weekend Sewing by Heather Ross so that's what I did. And I have strict rules (set by me) to only use fabrics in my stash! The bride to be loves sushi so I made these:

But I only had a yard which makes 4 napkins so I needed other fabric to make 4 more napkins. I choose 8 different fabrics in black and tan. Some were only a quarter yard cuts so I split the napkins into two fabrics on one side and one fabric on the other. I like how those turned out!

Hum, what will next week bring to the sewing machine or serger. I think it's time to upcycle some clothes to freshen my wardrobe!
