Closeup of pocket
Pocket is a three-in-one, and the middle one has a pleat on either side making it extra roomy.
Western font by Sofie! Thanks Sofie!
Colin is not an extremely tall/skinny guy... but I only have the kid sized dress form! Cotton twill with bandana quilting cotton trim. Ties are probably too long, long enough to cross in the back, in the front and then tie in the back... 'cause guys may not be partial to bows! If too long he can just cut 'em off and tie a knot in the end.
Towels for Sassie
Two bath, two hand, five washcloths and a tub mat. EL design (I think)... Sassie picked the design and the colour... it's a dark purple in case that isn't obvious!
Towels for niece and her dh
Monogram Wizard fonts (says JAJ in case you can't tell... the A is really pretty but not real obvious!)

Spencer carseat cover
Closeup of lamb; also Anita Goodesign. Lamb is a ribbed Minkee type fabric.
Closeup of bunny; Anita Goodesign design. Bunny is Minkee applique.
Kwik Sew pattern. Malden Mills 200 weight polar fleece. The folded up bit above the ribbing is to cover the face. Whether in use or stored it is held in place with velcro (see small rectangles either side of circular opening). The opening just surrounds the face rather than fitting like a hat. As you can see I could not find either ribbing or a zipper in the matching blue :(
Oh so late... hanging head in shame. Anita Goodesign's "Victorian Monogram"
In the hoop mittens
Sew Baby's "Mitten Wraps" done in the hoop. The loops are grosgrain ribbon and they will go through small loops in the coat sleeve to keep them from getting lost!
Sew Baby pattern. Fabric colour does not show up correctly (despite numerous attempts!) -- it actually has a very pretty soft green in the plaid as well. BTW those little wrist ribbings are very tricky to sew (at least with a walking foot and/or serger!). I lengthened the back of the blanket... it was only about 8" to 10" long and I made it the same as the front (24" approximately) but I think it should be even longer in the front, say 3' but I haven't tried it on Spencer yet.

"Buck Rogers" jacket back
Same fabric as the chocolate on the Ottobre pants; sort of made to coordinate with them. (Only the little stars, etc. that are on the back yoke are Anita Goodesign; others from all over!)
"Buck Rogers" jacket front
My photography skills aren't up to par... the top stitching is lime green.

First Prize Nightie Category
Just some quick redwork designs done on two of the surgical towels Chere sent me (thanks again Chere!). Then I added a nice soft apron type poly twill tape strap that velcros on one side. A bib would give a bit more coverage, but I think Grace likes these... just a tad more "elegant!" :)
