I have lots of sewing makes to share with you but I also have a non-compliant 10 yr old that won’t take pictures at the moment. So I’ll share them when I can.
I do have some fun silhouette cameo makes to share though! Here is what I made in March:
Bob’s Burgers PJs for Mr. T. I bought the shirt plain and added a bob’s burgers decal. The tee matches his PJ pants perfectly – I made the pants
Not one to be left out, I made Miss K these PJ pants, bought a plain tee, and added the “Timmy time” sheep to the front. She picked this image.
I made Miss K some new undies to try out (Scrundlewear by Stitch Upon a Time) and added a BMO picture to them
She loved the above ones so much she refused to take them off so I made her another pair and added “LSP” (These are both Adventure Time Characters)
By far the most fun and exciting projects this month were the following four pictures. This is called the PVPP method. You paint a canvas your color (white), put down a vinyl picture (cut out with cameo), paint it, then peel off the vinyl when dry. It turns out to be a pretty cool image.
Here is Miss K’s picture she painted. She picked out Link for her room. These are pretty big canvases, which kept her busy one day she was sick. She had a ton of fun painting it.
and an in progress shot:
Here is the owl I painted with this method. It hangs in my living room now.
Mr. T watches a lot of YouTube videos. He asked me to make him a “Lazy Harp Seal” hoodie. I bought the hoodie, and then spent 2 hours designing and pulling out the layers to cut before finally finishing this for him. He was over the moon.
Miss K needed a new Library Tote so I surprised her with this one day.
Miss K also asked for a “We Bare Bears” tee so I spent way more time than necessary getting this shirt done. I lightened the image up so you can see the top bear is brown.
Mr. T also asked for a Rick and Morty tee. I found some cool posters online and traced them. I love the design that resulted from it.
Mr. SunnySewing was feeling quite left out. So I made him a tee (modeled by miss K). It is a quote from “the office”
Then I made him this fun mug. Here is side two:
and side one. He drinks a lot of coffee.
As you can see I really enjoy using my cameo. I haven’t even scratched the surface of what I can do with it. The artistic side in me loves designing and pulling layers and colors out of the designs.
Sewing-wise I’m getting my Spring/Summer Plans lined up. I see lots of maxi dresses, shorts, tanks, and other dresses in my future. I also want to sew up another pair of jeans. And there is the quilt I need to finish for Miss K.
Health-wise I have some more testing and an outpatient procedure this next week – it never seems to end. So I won’t be able to sew until the following week. I’ll try to do better about posting my makes; unfortunately this year has been hard for me so far health-wise. It ebbs and flows so I just wait for it to swing back to ok.
Spring is finally here in the Midwest!
