Do you have a little boy?

Boys outfits are always so cute.  When my son was little, there was a small number of outfits from which to choose.  Also, you have a limited amount of time that a little guy can wear smocked clothing.  Do you find this to be true? 

Therefore, let Sewing Sweet know what your needs are for little boy outfits.  Do you like rompers?  Do you like 2 piece outfits?  Are monogrammed t-shirts your thing?  What would help you dress your little guy? 

Sewing Sweet currently has a few different listing for boys outfits.  They are listed below.  Check them out or make a suggestion here as to what you would like to see.

Just a normal day at the office...

Well, actually a normal day  in the sewing room.  Today was not the best sewing day.  There is a piece of material that has tried my patience to the bitter end.  Have you ever had a day like that?  5 times I tried to pleat this material.  Is there something wrong with the pleater, you ask? NO. Is there something wrong with the material? NO.  Yes, it was me.  You know the saying, "Practice makes perfect", well that only applies if you actually practice.  That is something that I have not been doing with my pleater.  When you do not practice, two things happen, #1 you can't remember what you are doing, and #2 your pleater will start a revolt.  Finally, after many tries with this particular material, I threw it out and started over.  Yes, I had the same problem.  AHHH!!!  I even broke one of the new needles my husband gave me for Christmas.  Finally, after getting way more frustrated than anyone should with a pleater (I mean it wasn't his fault.  He was just feeling rejected and lonely.), the material is pleated to my satisfaction. So, tomorrow, I will begin smocking some flip flops on this white thing.  With any luck, I will have a cute smocked insert for someone.

That reminds me.  My shop has smocked inserts for anyone who is interested.  If you have a jumper or dress that just needs a smocked insert follow the link to my inserts.
You can choose one of the ones pictured.  If you don't see one you like, we can discuss the possibility of ordering a plate.  So, stop by Sewing Sweet Tracy.

Opening today!

Ok, so today's blog will eventually get to sewing, but the big news is that we had a Krispy Kreme open up right up the street.  Until now, the closest Krispy Kreme has been about 15 to 20 minutes away.  This is big news.  So, we had a family trip after dinner to the new store.  We decided to only get 2 donuts each.  Of course, we all chose the ones with the most sugar.  So, the whole family is currently on a sugar high.  LOL!!!  I know that I will regret the food choice later, but the time spent with my family was great.  It was so cool to see my kids fascinated by the donut making machinery.  Believe it or not, they have not seen that before.  Now, we will probably not go back for a while, because eating healthy and Krispy Kreme don't exactly go together. 

Now, to discuss sewing.  What do you think about a Krispy Kreme themed outfit.  I can see a red and white polka dot bishop with donuts smocked around the neckline.  It would also need some rick rack a long the hemline.  That will have to wait.

The next project in the list is a dress for a Middle School girl.  She happens to belong to me.  The dress will be black at the top and gray at the bottom.  It will most likely be knee length or a little longer.  Well, be looking at pictures coming soon. 

Here are a few more items that you may like to check out on my shop.
