Patchwork Pillow

I'm crazy about patchwork. Lately it's all on my mind...always thinking about possible patchwork projects to sew & some to sell.

I made this pillow cover for my bff, a birthday gift.

 It's a simple design, fit for a 16 inch cushion.

I used Moda candy or mini charm pack for the middle square patch. The fabrics are Happy Go Lucky by Bonnie & Camille. I framed the middle patch with 3.5 inch blue strips.

I love it and I hope my girlfriend love it too.

I am right now buried in so many wips I could barely stop to look at the computer. It's a miracle I could actually write this post haha...

I will be back with more projects, promise!

Nautical Shirt - A Little Boy Sewing

Honestly, I have sewn very few boy's clothing ....I sort of want to wait for Erfan to be bigger for me to sew some clothing for him. How silly is that? I know I have to sew more for him and I find it hard to be inspired with boy's clothing sigh....

When a customer asked me to sew a shirt for her big boy, I said yes, secretly hoping perhaps I'd be inspired to sew for Erfan after sewing this shirt.

Well, it's true!! I am feeling very inspired! I love this nautical shirt I made for my customer and I really wanna make one for baby Erfan now! 

I used a pattern called Boy's Shirt Pattern No.7 by E+M Patterns. This is a size 7, the pattern was a breeze to sew. Excellent instructions and I love how the designer included a clean, durable finishing method as an option to the normal serger.

Here are some detail pics of the shirt. I omitted the pocket this time though.

I simply love the functional buttons on the shoulders, perfect for a nautical themed shirt :)

The smallest size however is size that Erfan is almost 18 months old, I think I can make one now in size 2 and if it's still a bit too big for him, we'll wait a few more months for him to grow into it. Am already selecting some fabrics for him. Will definitely blog about it once it's done.

For now, here's my cheeky lil angel! :D
