Pumpkin Halloween Costume

Ry in his Pumpkin Halloween Costume, isn't he so cute!!

Started out to make him a Dinosaur Costume, but once he saw
the pattern envelope he wanted to be a Pumpkin.

I used Butterick Pattern BP230, and fleece for the costume, the
directions said to use velcro for the back closure, but velcro and fleece
do not mix in the wash, so I put a zipper in. After doing the hat
per the instructions, it was a little skimpy looking, cut out and added
more leaves, and made my own stem. Just cut a rectangle, stitched it
up, stuffed it and hand sewed it to the top. Made the size 6, he should be able
to even wear this next year.

Ry and Katie, chillin at home.

Granddaughter is Here!

Katelyn Renee Olis, born a little before 6 pm yesterday evening, weighing in at 7 pounds, 14 ounces and 20 1/2 inches long.

Baby and Mother are doing Great!
As she was delivering the Dr. said "This baby has a big head", I told her she (my daughter) didn't really want to hear that! We all laughed!
Good Healthy Size Baby, and she looks just like her Daddy!

Baby Shoulder Burp Cloths

These were made using a good quality cloth diaper on the back, soft flannel or cotton on the front. Edge stitched with my serger or using some of the decorative stitch cams that I have for my Singer 503A.

Used this FREE pattern from the You Can Make This website

These stitch up really fast and easy! Great Website to browse and purchase from, love all their stuff!!

Fleece Throws/Blankets

Colts Fleece Blanket
Made this one by cutting fabric into 9 inch squares and sewing together using a 1 inch seam allowance. Then cut the seam allowances to the stitching to fringe it.

Made this one for my Son-in-law

Used a fleece panel and added another plain color fleece to the back, pinked the edges and folded over to the front and instant binding.

We are now into the month of October, already had our first frost advisary, the temperature went down to about 34° These fleece throws/blankets are perfect to cozy up to on a chilly day or evening.

Very simple and fast to make!!
