Skirts & body suits

In Uncategorized on January 31, 2013 at 4:52 pm

I have been sewing lots of new things for Spring, starting with these.  I hope you like them.  VELCRO!!! I have changed the type of velcro that I have been using.  I was using adhesive but have had trouble in the past.  Kathleen, my beautiful daughter in law, took a day off work and took me downtown to shop for fabric and new velcro.  I had the best day with her and can’t wait to do it again! I now use the sew on type and it is amazing and very sturdy.  If anyone has had trouble with velcro on outfit purchased from me. please email or call and I will be happy to replace velcro.   Back to sewing as I have a lot to do for the coming Season.

O’DONNELL FEIS

In Uncategorized on January 28, 2013 at 8:09 pm

I WAS A VENDOR IN MARKHAM LAST WEEKEND AND IT WAS GREAT.  I MET A LOT OF SWEET LITTLE GIRLS AND SOLD MOST OF MY OUTFITS.  I PUT A PICTURE OF TRACK PANTS WITH EMBROIDERY ON THEM “IRISH” WHICH KATHLEEN MADE.  THEY WENT SO FAST BECAUSE THEY WERE ADORABLE.  JACQUELINE AND CAITLIN HELPED ME A LOT AND I THANK THEM VERY MUCH.  GRANT AND KATHLEEN WORKED REALLY HARD SETTING UP ETC., FOR 2 DAYS AND I BENEFITED FROM THEIR HARD WORK AS WELL. THANK YOU TO MY BEAUTIFUL FAMILY FOR ALL THE HELP, LOVE AND SUPPORT THAT YOU GIVE ME.  I COULD NOT DO WHAT I DO WITHOUT THEIR GENEROUS HELP.

I don’t know which is the proper name, but these are my Pop pants for Spring.  I am trying to find yellow stretch fabric, but not easy.  As always, any comment or suggestion appreciated.

NEW WAIST BAND

In Uncategorized on January 10, 2013 at 10:11 am

I went downtown yesterday with Kathleen to shop for fabric.  I found lots of fabulous fabrics for Spring.  I found this which is now going to be my standard waistband on yoga pants.  It really looks better in person and we fell in love with it.  Now I have a lot of sewing to do.  Any favorites?

MOCCASINS

MY BEAUTIFUL KATHLEEN GAVE ME A PATTERN FOR XMAS.  THEY ARE MOSTLY DONE BY HAND BECAUSE I WANTED THEM TO BE “AUTHENTIC”.  I THINK I WILL MAKE LOTS MORE IN DIFFERENT COLORS.  ANYONE LIKE THEM?  I WISH YOU ALL A VERY HEALTHY AND HAPPY 2013!!
