This is the tute I used:

 

http://angrychicken.typepad.com/angry_chicken/2010/07/snack-bags-a-sewing-tutorial.html

 

The 3 large bags are just PUL (they're just used for DH to put his lunch container in.  He was using gallon sized ziplocs b/c some of our containers leak the thin, saucy stuff (like tomato sauce), but he wasn't reusing the ziplocs.  The PUL won't be coming in contact w/ any food, just the containers.

 

The sandwich/ snack bags I made are a cotton woven outer and unbleached muslin inner.  I was a little worried about food coming in contact w/ the dyes, but some people don't worry about that.

I should join too! I don't know if I'll be able to get to 52, but I'll make a goal of 1 every 2wks(until I go to stay with my MIL in a couple of months, when I will hopefully be able to change my goal to 1-2 per week for the few months that I'm there)

 

a little bit of background about me, I'm a full time student, SAHM to an incredibly active toddler, my DH works full time and is in school almost full time. I'm also a doula and childbirth educator, but that work has been put aside for a few months, until I come back from my MIL's house(overseas), in June or July. We don't really have anyone to watch DS here, so I can't wait until we go to MIL's! 

 

My to do list includes: (The things I have to wait to do are in grey, the things I can do before I go to my MIL's are black)

 

for me:

 

  • 3-4 hijabs that need hemming
  • a kurta I started last year
  • a jilbab that I started last year(almost done, just needs a bit of time!)
  • tie back hijab 
  • 11 shalwar kameezes
  • swimsuit
  • 3 baju kurung
  • 1 set scrubs
  • 14 jilbabs
  • babywearing jilbab

 
for DS/DH
  • 7 shalwar kameez for DH
  • 15 shalwar kameez for DS (can make a few before I leave, because I have the fabric)
  • diapers for DS(more like for future babies -- does potty training count as a project? :P)
 
  • doll for DS
  • doll clothes
  • rice heat packs (to sell)
  • flashcard sets(acupressure, aromatherapy, and labor/birth positioning)(to sell)
  • mei tai or podegi or I might just reupholster the mei tai I have(plain black, I might decide to add a new panel instead
  • fix thermals for DH

 

will add knitting projects later(MIL is going to teach me to knit) and newborn clothes if I can manage to get pregnant this year!

 

I realize that that is WAY more than 52, but thats just my to do list, and I know that my MIL is planning on helping me with some(most?) of the outfits, I'm just going to count the things I do :P

Joining late, but this is definitely a good idea!

 

Here is a start of my to finish list

 

3 gnomes in sleeping bags

1 doll sling

2 car carriers

1 pencil roll

2 teething dolls

2 star wands

2 aprons

 

I know there are more things I have started, but this is what I can think of off the top of my head.

10/52  I finished my skirt!  It is so cute!  I am totally on a skirt wearing kick lately and this one is a perfect transition to spring- I am going to post a pic later.  That said- this weekend my mom is lending me her dress form and DH is working on my sewing desk- so I am probably going to splurge on some fabric.  I am wanting to make a couple more skirts and try out the dress form by making some lingerie. 

 

Today  my goal is to make a little new baby hat for my friends new grandbaby- I knit one and ran out of yarn- so I either need to get some more yarn or try it out of fomething else.

FillMyQuiver: I just realized we're in the same DDC! I'm working on a sleep sack right now for my little one coming too. Just started it today but it seems to be going pretty quick. I will probably finish it by tomorrow.

 

Zebra: That is so sweet that your son wants you to sew I know the feeling with not needing anymore crafts though! My dh discovered knitting looms in the store the other day. Why does this man think I need these? He started asking me if I knew how to do that and showing me beginner books they had. Like I really need another craft! And he's encouraging it?!  Oy! dizzy.gif

 

 

I haven't finished anything else since I last posted but I've got a good start on this sleep sack for the baby and I think I found a pattern for dd's piggy. I'm going to look around a little too for a sleep sack pattern. I like the one I'm working on now and I wanted to make an adorable cocoon I found but it'll be too thick for a spring/summer baby so I need something different. Gonna see if I can find another pattern I like if not I'll just be making 2 of the pattern I'm working on now.

I just finished my first project for this challenge!  I acquired some pretty cotton voile over Christmas break and came home with the idea to make some lingerie for valentine's day out of it.  Here are the bottoms.

I love them so much!  They are super low rise!  Very sexy.  I plan on starting a matching top on Sunday. 

 

 

I used the free pattern here

Thanks everyone, I really enjoyed making those dolls.

Crazy- I was really intimidated at first (I actually was worried they weren't going to turn out) but it was really easy once I got started. I think pushing myself to get started was probably the hardest thing!

DD1's birthday was today.. I finished her birthday outfit really early this morning.. She wore it for all of an hour before accidently dumping hot cocoa down the front, luckily it had cooled so she wasn't burned but the outfit needed a wash.. Heres a picture of her opening her main present (a camera so I wanted her to have it before we started the day) wearing the outfit before it got dirty.I didn't make the pink shirt underneath, just the skirt and shirt on top..

 

003.JPG

 

So

1) Doll for DD1(Jan)

2) Doll for DD2 (Jan)

3) Doll outfit for DD1 (Jan)

4) Doll outfit for DD2(Jan)

5) DD1's birthday top and skirt (Jan)

But with the two demerits Im at

3/52

Hi all!  And welcome to our newcomers (Chenya and AmatullaO)!

 

Not a surprise, I didn't get a lot done on our two weeks of travel. 

 

Week 48:  7/52.

 

What  I did -- two dish towels embroidered while in the vehicle.  I'm about 1/2way done with a third dishtowel (which would mean that the "of the week" towels are finished, and on to the Seasonal towels).  And spent a LOT of time in the vehicle thinking about the sewing projects I wanted to get done when I got home.  We picked up a cold at the end of the trip, though, so despite getting home late Thursday evening - I spent much of Friday, Saturday, and today either caring for sick kids or on the couch, dazed and confused myself.  Still have some unpacking/unloading to do.  *sigh* 

 

So--- this coming week, I hope to finish the pending weekly towel, and sew a "cowgirl shirt" for dd1.  It's been cut out for almost 10 months now, I suspect it will actually need to go into the box o' six year old clothing to wait for dd2 to be ready to wear it.  But once I get it done, then I am going to move on and do a couple pairs of fleece pjs for dd1 (which will dramatically lower the size of the stash just due to their bulk) -- and then start trying to bust through a bunch of my tshirts which need recycling into kid clothes. 

 

Good to see everyone's progress! 


Not all who wander are lost.

DD1 has been asking for some PJs out of this dog flannel I have.. I just don't think they are going to get done before the move. I'm hoping to have to take a sewing break sometime this week. I haven't been able to work on any of the projects I was going to work on today, the girls want undivided mommy attention.

Well- I finished the hat out of different yarn- so cute and I went shopping- so whatever.  I love those collete briefs- so I thought I would make a couple jammie outfits for myself- so there is 2 of the demerits.  And 2 new skirts for spring- so I am falling back to what?  7/52?  Bummer- but you know a little new fabric is so much fun!  This week my goal is to make a cute curtain for my new sewing studio and get the desk made and possibly installed.  Oh- yes and I need to get the top finished on my cousins crazy patch quilt.  My mom gave me her stack of blocks yesterday- so am just waiting for my sisters stack....  It would be so much fun to sew them in my studio instead of making a mess in the dining room..... hopefully! 

 

Good progress ladies!

Second project finished for me.  These longies were started on Christmas vacation, but I ran out of blue yarn and couldn't get more until after the break.   They are embellished, lanolized and functional, as ds is demonstrating!

I find you can find videos for just about anything online to teach you to do something.. I always go online when I need to figure something out..

Alternately, do you know anyone who knows how to do it? Its fun at times to get together with others and do some crafting. It can really motivate you to get things done.

Getting started is really hard. I don't think I've ever been so afraid to start a project. I really need to just do it though. Right now I'm postponing until after I get done with baby stuff but I have to get to it after that because I really want that doll to be a Christmas gift this year.

I finished the first sock for DD1's boot socks.  It's my first sock w/ a heel and all, and it moved along fairly easily.  I'm hoping to cast on for the second one later today and make enough progress that I'll hopefully finish it tomorrow night.

I've been exhausted the past few days, but I managed to finish sewing the felt toy for our kitty. Now I just need to get catnip to stuff it with and sew up the little opening for that and it is done!

I don't jump in very often, I work more than full time.  However, some projects have gotten done!

 

Baby sweater and hat for friend at work's babyshower-shower was yesterday, she loved it

hat for friends daughter done, will have to see her to give it to her

So 3/52 for a working mama isn't terrible.  :)

3/52 with more getting really close!

 

I made a hooded cape for dress up play.  It's pretty girly, and I only have a son so far, so I'll either swap it in a craft swap or use it as a gift for one of my nieces.  Here is ds modeling it.  It has a velcro closure, but I had to pin it on him so he'd leave it on long enough for me to get a picture.
