I sewed up these tinkle time trainers in about 1 hour. I made them more like underware. They fit great. They are the tinkle time trainer from ladder hill design. I like how it uses up scrap knit fabric to make them. I love the pattern. It's easy to use and they turned out great.

Tea wallet for Grandma!

I found this great tutorial online for making a tea wallet and immediately thought of my mother-in-law as she is an avid tea drinker like myself. I only did a minor change as I embroidered a merged design on the front, I didn't want the button in the way so I added ribbon instead by sewing all the way around leaving a small hole for turning and then once turned I decided where I wanted the ribbon and seam ripped out a small opening on both sides where I inserted my ribbon. Then I topstitched all the way around, re-enforcing the ribbon spots.

ottobre knee pants

Here are two pairs of knee shorts from 2/2005 ottobre. I love the way that they turned out!
