After Christmas Sew Along 2014 - week 1 :)

The lovely and talented Karen from Sew Much 2 Luv is hosting the After Christmas Sew Along 2014 (ACSA 2014) throughout the month of January :)  The first line of the "rules" states:  "Sew anything you like." - now how's THAT for a sew along that will suit a wide variety of tastes, eh? LOL!  I knew I wanted to join, so I made a list of projects I wanted to complete, and got several items finished and uploaded to the flickr group :)

Kids aprons - small and large - tutorial here :) Finished measurements:  small = 13.5"w at bottom, 7"w at top, 17" long at center.  Large = 17"w at bottom, 9.5"w at top, 18.5" long at centre.  The small was made for a 2 year old, the large for a 6 year old.  Hope they fit!

Aaaaaaaah Michelle @ Michelle Patterns designs such great goodies!  These bags are from the Zip Pocket Pouch pattern - the blue ones are the size Medium (4.5"t x 6") and Tall (5.5"t x 4.5").  I have shark and flower charms coming to make zipper pulls for the shark and flower bags :D

Princess cape - fit for a princess!  Tutorial here - I made the small size, as this is for a 2 year old :)  Finished measurements - 22"w x 19.5"t (measured at widest points) :)


  1. You've reminded me that I have a few patterns from Michelle Patterns...haven't sewn any yet. Looking at yours, I really must. Love the Princess cape.

  2. Love them all, but that cape will be a favorite for some little princess. You have been busy!

  3. You got a lot accomplished! I especially love the pouches! The fabrics are just so pretty and fun for pouches! Michelle patterns are awesome, aren't they?!

  4. I love the cape! That is so fun! BUT I just can't even think about next Christmas yet! LOL! I'm still recovering from 2013!!! It is warm today but torrential downpours and flooding here. Hope all is okay with you! Brad said it was raining where he is too (London, Ontario?)

  5. Nice aprons! Good for holiday fun

  6. lovely as always.
    btw, did my letter arrive in time?

  7. I love it all! I'm pretty sure I might have that little pouch pattern… guess that means I should try to actually make some of them. They are definitely so cute!

  8. Gorgeous makes! That sew along sounds like fun :)

  9. Bloglovin is giving me grief again. Seems I've missed alot of your beautiful creations. Way to go, everything looks fantastic.
