An Assassin's Creed sweatshirt - copying a very expensive RTW one my son saw on the internet for a fraction of the cost and more sentimental value

School dresses for a 1st grade granddaughter.

School dress

Baby-toddler neckties, so adorably cute.

Thinking about Halloween costumes!

Pajamas. You wouldn't believe how hard it is to find teen boys' pajamas. Everywhere I looked, I found little boys pajamas and men's pajamas, nothing in between.

Teen pajamas
Pillow cases to be used by foster kids as their "tote" as they often have nothing to put their belongings in. This idea was originally suggested as a "no sew" way to help the kids as the group involved were not sewers. We are still looking for ideas to use to tie them up--something strong yet that won't knot up and is not hard for kids to tie, etc.

pillow cases
A vintage McCall's 4953 for my 4-year-old.

Making a quilt.

Loose tees for my tween.

Community theater costumes for kids ages 5-15!

New quilt for daughter's "grown up" bedroom (new colors), well, trying to...between the days I'm working on finishing my husband's office space.


A monkey pillow for my little cousin.

Starting a Halloween costume!

A jillion baby doll clothes, totes and diaper bags for granddaughters' christmas. Bought semi-sheer batiste for the girls' nightgowns today.


A Daisy Magic dress with castles and princesses on the fabric.

A lilac tutu for a young teenage dance student.


Some super-hero capes for a friend's little ones!

I am making the outfit from Burda Style August issue for girls - tulip pleated skirt, striped top with star graphic painted on and oversized sweaterknit cardi for my daughter (6yo).

Baby clothes(all organic, too!!) for my new grandson!

Volleyball shorts for my daughter, because we're too broke to buy any. Thank God I can do it!

exercise shorts

Well, I am working on a quilt for my daughter. She is going to raffle it off for her breast cancer walk to raise money.

School play clothing, circle skirt dress with ruffles for my girl; shirt and pants for boy.

A fancy western cowboy shirt.

Western shirt

A GotoPatterns Signature dress for my daughter; she is 5 and specifically asked for the maxi, with the flutter and long sleeves with a knit with butterflies on them...

Trying to get a couple coats done before it gets cold.

An oversized makeup bag for my teenage daughter.

Nice black pants for my 35 yo daughter.

khaki shorts and pants for my 8 yr old for school/church khaki shorts and pants for my 8 yr old. I used an old pair of lands end sport shorts as the pattern; they do not sell them anymore and they fit my son so perfectly!

Suits for my two boys, t-shirts for my daughter, and after that the "bat" hoodie from the January Ottobre magazine for my youngest son because it's going to be too rainy for him to wear a full cape soon and sometimes when you're 4, you just have to be a superhero for the day.

I am making pullover polo shirts for my 10 yr old for school. Recycling knit collars from shirts my husband won't wear.
