More Clothes for Anna

I had not touched my sewing machine for about four months, until last week. I don't know why, but I was not in the mood to sew all winter. Lately though, I have been in the mood to sew for Anna. It is just too fun to sew for a little girl who loves all the same fabric and patterns that I do.
Besides, I found a fabulous new blog with some great projects.


I made this top for her using the Oh Suzanna pattern, you can find it here. I love it! A quick easy way to recycle an old shirt.





The pants are from the Britches and Bloomers pattern. I have made about fifty pairs of these. It is the only pants pattern that I own.






I have plans for making a lot more clothes for the kids, including some golf shorts with pockets, requested by Addison. I want to try this tutorial for the pockets because they look so cool! I think my boys will love them.
Also, I am in the mood to quilt again. I am thinking something with vintage sheets for us to take to the beach. There will be more clothes for Anna, including a spring jacket.
My goal is to get all of the sewing projects I have in my head done, before it is time to garden and play in the flower beds. I just hope I don't lose my momentum!

I can see where the eager to sew comes from! Your little model is adorable! Love the blouse and the pants! What a nice way to spend the time that's left before spring!

Yet another blog to look at (thanks :)). I do like a lot of her stuff though. Looks quick and fun.

So cute! My sewing machine has been too quiet too. Spring always brings with it the desire to make girlie clothes. What will we do when those girlies grow up and don't want handmade by mommy clothes anymore? Great work!

I want those pants! They look like something I would just live in.

LOVE them, Katie! I wish I didn't want to throw my sewing machine every time I dig it out and attempt to use it! Maybe I'll get brave and get it out to make Astralita some Summertime things!!!

Winter is definitely knitting weather for me but since the sun came out this past week I've really been itching to sew. That outfit is too sweet!

I love your blog and check it out weekly! We had been planning a visit home when I discovered Genevieve's shop in your blog. I took my mom for lunch and then we visited her shop. Let's just say every time we go home I will be stopping by for a purchase. Loved it!!! I do have a question as to where you find your creme colored pots/urns? I love them and I have several plants in need of re-potting.
