WIP Wednesday - Mah na Mah na edition

Wow. It feels like a LOT longer since last week's post. Thanksgiving will do that I suppose. I didn't get a whole lot of sewing done this week. Some, but not a lot. But a lot of decorating got done!! :)

Over the weekend, we took the kids to see the new Muppet Movie.



Hilarious. If you haven't seen it, go see it. We laughed our heads off!

Anyway - sewing!

{Almost} Finished:

Lego Bag!!


It is sewn and the grommets are in!! Just need to get cord. I don't know how I missed that when I was getting supplies...

Progress:

E's King Size Zig Zag: the cutting has commenced.


That's 360 squares. And that's only half...

My dress: started


Cut out and the bodice has started getting stitched! I really love the color. So, as I was pinning that wicked curve in the bodice, I was reflecting on how different dress making is from quilting. And then I had a fun idea crop in. Would anyone be interested in a "Dress making for Quilters" sew along? I think it sounds fun! :) Let me know...

Princess's Bottled Rainbow:


She decided to make a smaller quilt, so after she finished her 6th block, we sewed it up and quilted it! Now she is pinning down the binding!! She is doing the roll over method and will be finished soon! I can't wait to show you!!

Last - I finally started a Twitter account. I really don't know how it all works, but if you are on there to, look me  up!! I'm @linzsews!

Well, that's all! Be sure to check out all of the WIPs over at Freshly Pieced! :)

Nice work! I really like your Lego bag; I plan to make four of those for Christmas gifts. So far I have four piles of fabric sitting on a table, waiting to be cut into all those strips!
Your dress is exciting, I love the look so far, I would love to be involved in some sort of sew along!
Thanks for sharing!

What lovely projects you have going on! I think that dress is going to be gorgeous, love the color. very vibrant and festive!

Your Lego bag is so cute and what a great idea to get the younger generation involved in projects.

I am a novice at sewing but would love to learn to sew beyong the simplest things so I would be ver interested in a sew along blog.

Last thing, I wanted to see that Muppets movie so bad! Glad to know it is a good one.

Great job on the Lego bag, Lindsay. It looks fabulous! Like the new holiday background on your blog too. Glad to hear that the Muppets was good -- I really want to take my munchkins.

So fun! I'll have to take my son to see the Muppets. Your dress is looking gorgeous too! I'm so afraid of sewing a complicated garment like that. I just know I'd spend all of this money and supplies and it would be unwearable. I'm a wimp!

Can't wait to see Princess's quilt!

Jen said...

I want to hear how things went on the grommet application? Did you get them at a hardware store? I am making a quiet book, and I plan to use some for it. Details!
