Sewing Date and Sneak Peek

So I recently had one of my good friends over and we had a little sewing day.   She brought her sewing maching and we did our projects together.  When the baby was awake, we took turns sewing and being on babysitting duty. It was fun... and we both got a lot done.

I've been finished with the project for a while now... and I've been dying to show you guys.  The only problem is, it's a present for one of my best friends. And when said best friend is one of the few followers of this blog and actually reads it on a regular basis, it kind of ruins the suprise when I post it before I actually send it to her.  I'll be putting it in the mail this week, and once she gets it, I'll finally be able to show you pictures of it! 

Below is a little sneak peek.  

The other awesome thing from the sewing weekend was that as I was doing this pattern, I was reading the different options for finishing and thought I'd try the overcast option.  Absolutley LOVE the way it looks... way better then a zig zag.  It looks nice and clean and still keeps it from fraying.  Woo Hoo!

Also if you look closely at this next picture, you can kind of see the design of the fabric I'm using.  I'm totally in love with the fabric.   I liked this pattern a lot and I think the fabric is so cute, it makes me want a boy just so I can make another one!

Stay tuned...  I've got a bunch of new projects that I've been doing, and I'm excited to be able to show you them soon.
