KDVS Fundraiser--Bloomers!

Yay, the bloomers are all done! Five pairs, sizes XS-XL in blue with lil' yellow flowers and dark blue embroidery (only shown in the last picture). In spite of the best intentions, the bloomers are the only things I'm sewing/completing in time for fundraiser. I ran out of time and I don't want to offer a sloppy product in KDVS's name. So, bloomers are the end of the line, and don't make me tell you how I managed to screw up what should have been a very cute and simple cafe apron. Another time. I'm really sorry, dudes--nothing sewn for you this round.
Bloomers are for playing!
and for monkeying around.
If you pledge during One-on-One tonight and want a pair of bloomers but find that your size is taken, there is still a chance that you can get them in your size! There will be a premium listing under the craft section available only between 8 and 10pm on Monday the 18th where you can tell me what size you want and I will make you a pair (limited to five). It's that simple!
Didn't DJ Sister do a bang-up job of stitching these? I think so. Thanks!
You can pledge to the fundraiser at or by calling 530-754-KDVS. Whee!

Late March Progress, Fundraiser Preview!

Slipping in just under the wire, I was able to be "somewhat productive" for the month of March. I finally made the curtains for our bedroom!
I also made the pillowcases Cate had requested, though I didn't take any pictures. They even had a decorative ruffle, but you'll just have to imagine it.
Now I'm onto fundraiser items. First on the list are five pairs of bloomers in a pretty cornflower blue with small yellow flowers. (sizes XS-XL, one of each)
Michelle talked me into this fabric at a yardsale--I think it is bloomeriffic!
Though all of the fabric is cut, I'm yet to stitch them all together, thread elastic and ribbon, and embroider. (I'm hoping Michelle remembers that she said she would embroider them. Hrm...)
Five pairs of bloomers cut-out-yet-not-sewn; not particularly impressive looking.
So, also on the cutting mat are plans for potholders and a cafe apron. Any ideas for anything more guy-ish that I can sew before next Monday? April 18th, One-on-One will be awesome! (8-10pm)
