A-line Skirt-Sew

Another basic a-line skirt to add to my collection of skirts. Since I have to wear them everyday for work and haven't made one for awhile, I decided to do another one this weekend. I have a denim one cut out, ready to sew.
Simple a-line, elastic waist, pockets.
Cotton material.
Maxi skirt (well just barely above my ankles).

PJ Bottoms Sewn

Finally finished the March challenge of PJ's. I messed up and had to unpick, then the fabric bled on my fingers, so I had to wash again after sewing them up.

Pattern: New Look 6765

Green Dishcloth

I have a cone of this green in my bedroom for when I can't sleep. Finished this one last night.

Colorful Dishcloth

Decided to do just a SC dishcloth. Don't like how the colors came out. But it's a good utilitarian dishcloth and will hide stains.

This is another WIP I had.

Neapolitan Color Dishcloth

Finishing up dishcloth WIPs.
Basic solid granny square with a white picot boarder.

Teal and White Dishcloth

Stated with a gauge swatch from a pattern. Then sc around that. Finally a white boarder.

Peaches and Cream with a Whipped Cream boarder Dishcloth

Found the center of this dishcloth done. I had no idea what hook I used, so I made a white ruffle boarder to finish it off.

Kindle Fire Bag - Sewing Kit

Found this kit at Big Lots for only $2.50, so I bought it. Came with a few extras including a piece I used as a strap (needed one on my other cover but never made one).

Kit was suppose to be all hand sewn, but I did everything in my machine (including sewing a gathering stitch for the yo yo). I did the the button and yo yo by hand. The little Velcro pieces stick on, but I added a center straight stitch to keep them on. I did both yo yo because I want sure which one to use. Used the one that matched the step.

Flower Power Dishcloth

I left off the last round because mine was 9 1/2 inches. I crochet lose. I'd I make it again, I'll figure out how to make the pedals more prominent. The last round does that. 

Round 6 was a bit confusing, but I made  it early in the morning,  and just crocheted.
