Some New Projects

After four months of letting my machine sit idle, I finally had the energy and motivation to whip it out yesterday and get something done.
I took large new washcloths and cut them into fourths and hemmed around them to make baby washcloths.  Washcloths are a must for every mom and make a cute, but inexpensive gift!  I did 8 in about an hour!
I got super inspired by my bright fabric scraps and made this little skirt with matching headband and socks on a whim, without a pattern, to give to my cousin Amy, for her first baby, Sofia, who is coming in July.
I had promised a couple of cousins some leather shoes for their babies. 
I had a really hard time going around the lines on the dolphins so they turned out looking kind of rough....ooops!

Adorable gifts, Lindsey! How did you make so much in one day?! :)

I had cut the pieces out ahead of time the night before so that part was done. The 8 washcloths only took an hour and I probably only spent an hour or two on both pairs of shoes and 2 hours on the skirt set. So, total I sewed about 2 hours before lunch and about 2 hours during nap time later in the day.
