Summer s(e)wing


Summer holidays are officially over. The boys went back to school (in fact one of them just started school – more on that soon) and I am back at work.

Not much sewing happened here for the last approx. 7 weeks, but here are some things that I actually finished.

4 Baby Summer hats, for boys and girls, some with visor:

A baby girl dress for my niece:

Karla's dress

And three picnic blankets:

This one is for my cousin who just received her second degree in law and made her PhD. We threw a surprise party for her at my parents’.
Here are some details of her blanket.

The backings of all these blankets are coated cotton fabrics to prevent the picnic blankets from soaking up possible moisture from the grounds.

The following blanket was made for my mother’s birthday:

And then there was a third one for my sister’s birthday (in her favourite girly-pink colours):

Three completely different styles to match three different tastes of three different women. Let’s see if I need to make a fourth for my other sister?!

I hope you are all having a great summer?!
Happy sewing!
