Finished Sewing Projects

16 Jan

I wanted to share a few of our student’s finishes that have not previously made it to the blog.  These finishes represent a LOT of hard work an a LOT of learning in order to complete them.

This dachshund stuffie is such a cute toy.  It is done completely by hand – no machine sewing at all.

This student took our Costume Workshop.  She wanted to be one of the My Little Pony characters.  She made pants and a crossover shirt in just a few sessions!  Boy did she work hard!

Isn’t her “poodle” just too cute?!  I love the collar she chose for it – those are little pearls.

2nd grader dinosaur costume.

2nd grader alligator costume.

This student was so thrilled with her costume!!  Look at her tail – it is totally detachable so that she can easily get into and out of this costume all by herself.

Just look at her mask – too cute!

My daughter was not quite as ambitious as some of my students, but she decided to alter an existing costume that we already had.  We hand sewed red patches underneath holes that she had cut into the fabric.

She has asked me not to share until after Halloween so you will have to wait for the big reveal then.

This is the top part of her alligator costume.  This costume is so perfect for the elementary aged child – it is easy on and easy off – and leaves the hands free.  And of course it looks wonderful on her!  At our next session she will make her face mask and be done.  What a great costume!
