Kwik Sew 3421 (Mens Swimming Trunks)

 These are basic pair of swimming trunks with an elastic waist and drawstring.  The camo green is a brushed polyester (I think) purchased from Mill End Textiles.  I used a mesh nylon from JoAnn's for the lining.  I made these in a size small with the longer length which seems to fit him just perfectly.  Pattern review here.  I think this pattern will work for a few years for him.

Finished Piano Runner (for me)

Posted by Picasa   This is a piano runner for my family.  We have a very tall, old, but beautiful piano and I've always had intentions on making a piano runner for it.  The rayon linen squares were upcycled from an outdated dress.  The four frames of my children will go on the four squares and there shouldn't be any uneven seam lines for the frames to sit on.   The fabric strips are from Ty Pennington's Impressions line.  This runner also matches my dining room curtains and table runner.  I have declared June "Just Sew" month for me.  My goal is sew and sew and sew and clean up.  Thus far, I have finished the piano runner, repaired a washcloth, kitchen towel, and adjusted the straps on my daughter's shirt.  We have used up one spool of thread.  Here is a link to my dining room curtains here and table runner here.

Jalie 3023

 I finished this Swimsuit for my oldest.  I used a size Q and it fits just perfectly with a little growing room.  The sizes are cinched up tight.  She says the halter style back stays up.

Beginnings of Table Runner for Table Top Swap

 My partner seems to like pinks, oranges, and reds so I went with a scrappy log cabin style.  I like it with 2 exceptions.  I accidently put two blocks with the pink floral on the outside right next to each other.  Secondly, I put the directional blocks going each direction.  I'm not sure if I like it or not.  We'll see if my partner comments.
