I haven’t blogged in way too long. I’ve actually been busy sewing for lots of different charitable causes. For the last few weeks I’ve been working on making one-of-a-kind pouches. I made 15 zippered pouches for a homeless shelter. These are in the mail and will be given as holiday gifts to new moms in the shelter. I wrote about several of these while in progress. My designs were about using up scraps and creating something unique for each pouch. Here are several upclose photos showing the variety.
I also adore making doll clothing for A Doll Like Me. I mailed Amy a small bundle yesterday and here are some of the little doll clothes in that package. These dresses are made with gorgeous Kaffe Fassett clothing. His prints are luscious and with stripes and dots, they make for fun little dresses.
All the little doll clothing will go to recipients of A Doll Like Me. The little dresses are elastic for ease in putting on and off. These cargo and capris pants also have elastic waists with real little pockets that actually could hold items. Amy knows that I love to sew these clothes and I adore having fun novelty prints to play with. I pile up the little clothes until I have enough to send in a package. This batch included a (wacky) bird doll blanket that I posted about a long time ago. The blanket was made from a jellyroll that I found on discount. The fabric prints aren’t my favorites but they do make for a bright blanket. I’m glad to finally send it on it’s way; and hope it can help keep some doll company.
So that’s it for a quick blog post keeping record of things I’ve been sewing lately. Next up is the fun winter blog hop with cookie recipes. I’ll be showing my Boro project on December 9th along with a cookie recipe. Til next time, stay healthy and well.

Oh those are all so fabulous!!! And the color and fabrics you used are all such happy fabrics!
Lots of beautiful donation gifts! What a lovely way to share with others!
Thank you for linking to TGIFF!
Thank you so much. It keeps me out of trouble and helps me use my skills for others.
What beautiful zip pouches. Those will bring a smile to the recipients face for sure. Also love the doll clothes. Do you have a certain pattern you use for the dresses? If so, would you share it with me sometime?
Thanks so much.
I get my patterns mostly from Pixiefairie.com. I use their 18″ dress patterns or have adapted the pants patterns to fit boys and to have an added ruffle.
