August finishes - aprons and pirates :D

Sewing in August - I did some!  My fabric stash increased this month when I visited my dear friend Mickie and her hubby Brad and her (OMG GORGEOUS) pupper Scout in Pennsylvania :)  I met her awesome friend Carol, and Mickie and Carol presented me with a box of fabrics to use as I saw fit :D  Talk about stash enhancement!  We also did some shopping, went caving (loved it, and will be doing it again in October!), went out to eat, hung out, hugged and stuff - it was great :D  This  needs to be an annual thing - we had so much fun, and hubby was quite happy to hang out with Brad - what do you think, Mickie?  :D

Here are a few of my August finishes - in no particular order, because I'm not organized enough to keep them in order, hehe.

A pirate pillowcase for a soon-to-be 7 year old :)

Aprons on a windy day - some for gifts, some for donation :)

Batman!  The tutorial for this one is here - I made Batman in size 6-8 for a soon-to-be-6 year old :)  The lining (back) fabric is the same Batman print that the pocket is made from :)  The denim is upcyced from a pair of kids jeans ($1 from the thrift store :D) - it's a LEG!  I left the seam  in (off-set) so it would be obvious that this was made from jeans :D 

This Batman apron is for the younger brother of the recipient of the black/yellow Batman apron :D  The tutorial is here ... this one is sized for about a 2-3 year old :)  Same deal as the previous apron - lining is the same as the pocket print, and the apron itself is made from a leg from a pair of kids jeans :) 

This sweet little girl apron is made from a lovely heart print given to me by Mickie & Carol (see first paragraph :D) :)  It's the same size and pattern as the denim apron directly above, from Peekaboo Pages :)

This is a booboo apron :D  I wanted to make an apron featuring an owl.  I didn't have an owl print in stash, but this fall animals fabric does have owls; unfortunately I had a brain fart and fussy cut the FOX instead of the owl, when I was making the pocket!  At that point I decided I would do Batman instead, so this apron will get donated, since it has the wrong animal guide, haha :D  Same size (6-8) and pattern (Sew Liberatedas the first apron in this compilation :D

More fabric from Mickie and Carol - perfect for an apron, I'd say!  Same Sew Liberated apron as above, in size 6-8, and into the donation box she goes :)

Right now I'm working on some superhero pencil cases for birthday gifts - there WILL be Batman.  And Wonder Woman.  And Ninja Turtles (or more Batman - I haven't decided) :D

Aprons for the grands :D

My sister's grands!  Sadly, I don't have any yet  :D

Here's the apron I just finished - I made it for a great nephew who will be 2 later this year.   The apron is sized 2T-4T, so it should be good for him for a while :)  The pattern is a freebie from Amy @ Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop - it's a quick and simple sew, so I'll be making more of them for Blue Hills :)  The blue in the fabric isn't quite this turquoise in reality - it's a gentler blue.  The print is from the "a walk in the woods" line by Aneela Hoey for Moda :)

Next up will be another apron, but a bit larger, for that g-nephew's bigger brother :D  I hope to get it finished tomorrow - but for now, I need to go upstairs and get supper started.  It's my husband's 57th birthday today, and the kids are coming over tonight for a bbq :)
