Jess sewed!

Jess has a sewing machine. Once in a great while she'll pull it out and make something with it, although she always manages to "sweet-talk" me into into making the big projects when the time comes. She did get her machine out a couple days ago, and I thought what she made was just so darn cute that I had to blog about it, since she no longer posts on her own blog. 

Look!



Both are made from her Typography fabrics, and she used a tutorial that she found here. Aren't they just fabulous?!

Her hubby, Alex, was the stunning model, and because he believes that a real man knows how to tie his own bow tie, he studied a video to learn how. Whatta guy, huh?

Those pics just make me smile every time I look at them. Hope you like 'em. I have it on good authority that Jess sewed something else, too, and maybe I can convince her to let me show you (after she shows me). But first I have to show you what else we worked on over Christmas. I finished them yesterday, but have to take photos yet. Check back tomorrow and see.....

Love the bow ties! Two thumbs up for everyone involved (I especially like the part about learning to tie them from You Tube!)

None of my friends and relations (read any Winnie the Pooh lately?) wear bow ties, so my to-make list will be spared this addition. I did whip up a Triple-Zip pouch over the holiday break though, and it turned out pretty cute. I'll have to post some pictures of it on my blog one of these days.

Can't wait to see what else you've been making. From your last post, I'm guessing luggage tags?

Thanks, Jenny!

I look forward to seeing your pouch! I do think bow ties would be very cute on little boys, though. ;)

You are a very good guesser. :)

That's a great use of the Typography fabric. Now, if only my boyfriend would wear bowties too, they look fun to make!

Grandma G said...

Thanks, Gen! Hey, there's a first time for everything! How about one in a red plaid for starters? ;D

Geneviève Thiffault said...

That's an idea! Or maybe I should make one for Charlie instead? :P

Grandma G said...

I think Charlie might be even less inclined to wear one. LOL

Thanks, Annie Dee! I'll let Jess know. :)
