Since the two people getting these do not read my blog, I am safe to post them here. At least, I don't think they read it!
The first thing I made was this robe for my nephew:
Jacob reluctantly posed for me. The thumbs up was all his idea. Grainy, computer lightened photo is all me... I used Dana from Made's pattern and it was super simple! I did not need 1 3/4 of fabric, either. I had about 1 1/4 of the terry cloth and a 1/2 yard of seer sucker for the bias tape. I wish I had a serger to keep all the seams neat, but the siz-zag stitch will have to do!
The next present is a pillowcase for a floor pillow/European pillow. My SIL loves them and I was going to get her the whole thing, but we went to Ikea together and she picked up a few pillows so I thought I'd make her the case instead. She has a thing for red and black, obviously. :)
The backing fabric came from my mom, she picked the red peacock fabric up on a vacation in Florida and I finally cut into it for this. Luckily, there is enough left for me to make something for myself.
I kept the selvedge edge because Patty Young did here. I've made this pillow before, with Michael Miller's Metro Circles and I love how quick and easy it comes together!
I still have two things to make before Sunday. A purse for another SIL and a Box Pouch for another SIL. But first I get to go have dinner with my co-worker at Main Street Grille and let her know that I'm going to have a baby! I'm a little nervous about it! Ce la vie. :)
