Last sweatshirt post

I made two more sweatshirt jackets this weekend. They both are for great granddaughters. I just love putting the chenille on them. The chenille is the finishing touch the really make the jackets so cute! I used chenille for the flowers and and around the butterfly. On the back is a red flower for which I made my own chenille. It is really easy and works as well as the purchased chenille.
The gathering for the sleeve trim, neck trim, and bottom trim was all completed with the serger. I had to serge it three times to get it tight enough, but it was very stable when sewing onto the sweatshirt.

The white jacket still needs some little white buttons for the placket. The purple jacket is much brighter and the skirt has much more purple and pinks in it. Sorry the picture is not better. One sweatshirt is a size two and one is size three.

My other major project is to get the blocks ready for the guild members for tomorrow's meeting. The next donation quilt pattern and fabric has been chosen. It will be Midnight Garden from Possibilities. We will be giving out the pieced blocks and the directions for them tomorrow.

Those are just darling! If I ever get any grand babies they will be so spoiled.

I saw some of that chenille by the inch in Key West. I almost bought some -- it was very tempting.
