Mama Made: A-line Dress

Because of the massive (and generous) influx of gifts over the holidays and birthdays I sort of fell out of making Amaani dresses.

I always wanted to try to make her an A line dress-- they are supposed to be easy, comfortable, and I'm hoping it will give me a jumping off point for making little salwar-kameez's for her. This one is from my own pattern.

It isn't perfect, but Amaani seems to like it! (Thanks, Purvi for the pants!)

Mama Made: Owl Quilt

I thought I share a little quilt that I made up for a friend of Kartik's. They are expecting a sweet little baby any minute now!

The quilt is from the same pattern as the ones I made Amaani and Ishu; but due to experience, a new sewing machine, and not being pregnant; it is much better constructed.

 I took a few pictures of my favorite prints...

And of the little loop I added to hang keys/binkies/toys from. I can never keep track of any of those when I'm out with the kids.

Quilting is like the junk food of sewing-- and I mean that in the nicest way. Sewing this was so much fun that I felt guilty while I was making it, and was sad when it was over! Luckily I still have a bunch of scraps. :)
