Happy Halloween!






I made my girls matroyshka (or Russian nesting doll) costumes this year for Halloween. I had to seize the opportunity to make them because I have three little girls in a row! I used the Simplicity Pumpkin costume pattern (this whole idea was copied from another blog I will admit). It was really easy, straight forward sewing.

Halloween Prep



My little ones' costumes are coming along and I am so excited! I think they will look great. Can you guess what they will be?

P.S.-Homemade pattern weights rule.

P.S.S.- My sewing machine became jammed and I almost hyperventilated. It reminded me of when Matt first bought be this two ton sewing machine from the seventies at a garage sale and no matter what I did, it jammed. Luckily I was blessed to be able to fix it (my current machine)! Huzzah! ;)

Dolly




I made a dolly for a friend's daughter. She (the doll) has crazy hands. It was fun though.

Work it!


I seriously need a sewing room.

Before I go on, I must address my name change. I did it because I'm not the only one that considered herself "the lazy seamstress." That's okay. "Sarajolie" seems less popular and is a name I've used since I was a kid. I combined my name with the name of a favorite actress, at the time (once someone asked if I was a member of the Jolie family and it totally made my day).

So I have a lot of projects in the works. It is so freaking hard to find the time to work on them, but I am trying! Hopefully I'll have more completed projects to share soon.
