Miss Bossy Pants!

What a labor of love!

This is the first time that I have ever gotten seriously discouraged with anything that I've made.
(not that I've made a whole closet full of garments lol)

For The Monthly Stitch Sew-a-long, March's theme was "Miss Bossy Patterns"

We had to give the opportunity to the public to choose what we were going to make from a selection of different patterns and fabrics.

Bibs & Bowties

Went to the baby shower and it was beautiful :-)
The theme of the shower was "Bibs & Bowties"
They had little bib cookies with bowties on them and bowtie shaped napkins and what not!
It was so cute!!

I had decided I was going to make a snuggle blanket, a nursing cover, and some mittens.
I only ended up making the blanket and nursing cover because I cut the mittens out wrong and they would have sewn up really awkward/wrong.

I haven't done one of these in a while but this was way too good not to share!
In my search of finding labels to put on the things that I make (cuz you know, I'm hype) I obviously was looking for ways to do it myself cuz I don't got money like that lol
All of the tutorials I was finding were like:
1. Go buy Iron transfer sheets
2. Print your labels in hieroglyphics
3. Put it face down on the fabric
4. Press but don't move cuz then the hieroglyphics will stretch and you'll have to start all over.
As tech savvy as I am, I didn't have the will to find out how to print stuff backwards and what not.
I figured there had to be an easier way.
So I found THESE at JoAnn's:

You're not the boss of me!.. well, maybe you are...

Okay, that was a scream of sleepiness lol

For March, the challenges is called:

For this challenge we are supposed to be making a pattern that we have never made before.
But instead of us choosing what we'll make, YOU, the people of the world get to be bossy *just this once* and decide what pattern I gotta make.
And because I missed the February Sew-a-long "Smarty Pants", I've decided to make all 3 of my options bottoms.

March Madness!

So I've definitely got the sewing fever.

I've been exploring the sewing interwebs trying to find all types of sew-a-longs that I can be a part of and now I know why they say "be careful what you wish for" lol

So before I get all lost in the sauce, I'm posting all of challenges and sew-a-longs that I'm rolling with for March... ya know, for countability and what not.

And yea, I know it's almost the middle of March but I was out of the country for the first 9 days so i'm allowed to be late right?..right lol
