Embroidery machine applique

This is my first attempt at machine applique.
Now that was Easy!!
Tomorrow is pajama and messy hair day at school
and Jessica needed some new pajamas.
This is the result.
I purchased the design from
I thought the sleeping owl was cute.

Costume sewing

I do not like halloween!!
So there.  I said it.

Ethany in her pirate costume.

Jessica in her red fairy dress.

Also made a Dorothy from Wizard of Oz costume
and a hippie costume.
I hope to have pictures of them soon.
Now I have 2 winter jackets that need zippers
and some pants to hem.
Then I need to do some basic type sewing -
pants and tops for the girls.
Also start working on my Christmas list.

Not getting much done.

I have not been doing much sewing lately.
But really need to get started.
Christmas is coming you know!!
I started a list.
And I promised to make halloween costumes.
I made these batman pj's for my grandson the other day. 

Then I had a pair of ladies pj's that needed mending.
The tie at the waist had ripped all the fabric
and I didn't know how to fix them.
They had been laying in the sewing room since last January.
So I just cut them into a small pair for my grandson.
Now I don't have to worry about fixing them anymore!!

A new purse.
Well, actually I made it a few years ago and
I decided I needed a new purse so I dug this one out.
It is made of suede upholstery fabric and
I did some embroidery on it.
I had actually made for a craft show and it never sold.
So I might as well use it.

A "BOO" halloween t-shirt.
Just for fun.
