Baby Ava's romper is almost finished. This is the first time I've sewn snap tape. After ripping and re-sewing a couple of places, I am happy with the garment. I used the dotty fabric for the little caps on the shoulders and the bias strip around the arm.
Back with bow.
The bow makes it cuter but is attached with snaps.
Decision-bow or no bow?
Next up for Ava-I'm going to make a reversible top and two bottoms. The ruffled bottom on the left pattern will have eyelet ruffles.
I plan to use the lime green knit for the pants from the pattern on the right. The owl fabric and the blue flowers will be the reversible top. I will use the eyelet on the bottom of the dress/top, too.
Using up stash fabric (mostly).
One day next week my friend will come get the Janome sewing machine and bring her teen girls for some sewing instructions. Hope they enjoy sewing as much as I do.

I bought this cute pattern for baby Ava. I thought I would make a test outfit from my quilt fabric stash to make sure of the fit.
I have enough of the green with pink flowers for the body of the romper. Now I have to choose which fabric to use for the bow in the back.
I think the dots will work but the pink is a close second.
In other news, Sally cat pictured below, got a scolding from a Blue Jay this morning.
Here is the Blue Jay-still fussing.
Too bad he doesn't know that Sally is too fat to catch him or his family.
Ready to cut and sew an outfit for Ava.
How's your week end?

A quilt is not really finished until the label is sewn.
This week I finished David's quillow and Liam's, too.
Liam's was gifted in 2014 but I neglected to put a label on it.
Now his quillow is Really finished.
Both have a boyish transportation vibe.
Liam's was the first quillow I attempted and was started from a kit.
David's was the fifth in my quillow series. ;-)
These days I like to use width of fabric strips instead of fat quarters.
A couple of shots of them folded.
Here they are turned into pillows.
Hot Fingers are finished, too.
Ready to gift to my co-workers.
Off to celebrate the boys' birthdays!
Hope you have a fun week end.
