Snuggie – the third version

This is my third attempt at making a snuggie.  This time it was for my bro-M, sil-S’s hubby.  Remember her Kerokerokeroppi one?  This one included a hoodie and a zipper in front.

I posted this teaser shot on instagram while I was making it

I don’t have a pattern for this thing and went based off things I had already learned.  I took a few pictures of me wearing it so that I could see how it was turning out. The hood and zipper looked pretty good.  I was happy with how it was turning out.

A side shot so I could see how it was laying from the side.

A shot of the back so I could make sure the hood was laying right.  Doesn’t this look good as a vest snuggie too?  Also, side note, I miss my long hair.

For preservation purposes, I wanted to make sure I noted how I sewed the zipper.

I’m not a fan of matching things when it comes to my garments but so many garment makers are so I thought that I’d document my awesome accidental matching skills!  Well, sort of accidental matching skills.  Haha!

A closep up of the hood because I’m just so happy about it.

The front and back of this snuggie.

Earlier this year (2017) my bro-M and SIL-S came to visit us.  SIL-S had requested I put a zipper in her snuggie and I offered to shorten her sleeves too.  Then I made the three of them stand together so I could get a photo of all the snuggies I’ve made.  DH’s was first, SIL-S’s was second, and bro-M’s was third.  Hopefully they’ll just keep getting better!

Aren’t they good sports?  =)

Poolside Tote

I used to sell Thirty-One when we lived in Alabama. I even sold it for a few months after we moved to Ohio. Shortly after though, I stopped since I wasn’t getting any sales and I wasn’t a fan of their products.

When we moved to Nevada, we found out that we had some Alabama friends stationed here. Thank goodness!!! We were hanging out once and my friend had asked if I still sold Thirty-One or if I knew anyone that sold. I asked her what she was looking to purchase and she said she needed a tote for towels and whatnots. I told her that I could make one for her.

I showed her a few options and Noodlehead’s Poolside Tote was the winner.

After I cut out the pieces I took a photo and posted it on Instagram. Doesn’t it look great?

The inside. Didn’t she pick out great prints?

I hung it on my ironing board to show how big it is.

Isn’t it just so cute?

A small fishy that I had to show a close up. He’s so stinking cute!

All completed!

This tote ended up being pretty easy and quick to sew together.  I was a little worried that I would have a hard time because the pieces are so weirdly shaped.  It was fun and I can’t wait to make another one.
