What I Made this Week...



I've started planning something I've been wanting to do for awhile now, and I'm finally going to create it this season: a Spring/Summer collection.  Inspired by seeing Jessica's every season, I've decided I'm going to go for it.  It's been so fun to choose my coordinating fabrics and draw up sketches...way too fun!  And I've decided to be sure to create as many looks for Tobias as I do for Anja.  Tough, since it's so easy to make little dresses for Spring/Summer, but I just can't leave out my boy!

In the meantime, I came up with a little hoodie design this week...nothing fancy, but I added a few details to make it original.  Here's an inside out shot:


And some close-ups...


Next up...I can hardly believe it, but I'm making my first real quilt!!  Thanks to Shannon's awesome tutorial, Tobias is getting an Out to Sea quilt.  If all goes well, Anja's going to get one, too.  He was so excited to help 'design' it, and was very adamant about where certain pieces were placed.  I got all my supplies today, so I have no excuses left for not starting it.  I'll keep you posted on how it turns out!

Have a great weekend!!

  8. Very cute hoodie! Can I get one in my size? Can't wait to see the entire look all together. Is it a different color scheme for each child or the same so you can use some of the same fabrics?

    1. In your size, Sally, of course! ;) Good question...so far the colour schemes are mostly different for each child, but I'll probably be able to use some of the solids for both. I'm just having so much fun picking fabrics, but am hesitant to commit since it's so expensive to ship here!!!

  14. Lovely as always, Heidi! I love Shannon's tutorial. She makes the quilting process look so accessible for us non-quilters. Maybe this year sometime. We'll see!

    I think heaps of us are starting to think about collections! Jess is so inspiring! I did a mini collection last year when I was waiting for Eddie to be born, but after PR&P I'm thinking of doing a little Autumn collection for the kiddies :) We should have a big collection roundup!
