Aren't Sabrina's kids lucky?
In response to our request for images of things all y'all have made (see? I'm trying to get Southern here!), Sabrina sent some very impressive images. She's been a NearSea customer since 2007, and I envy her children. Here's what Sabrina, who lives in Florida, wrote:
I clothe my four children almost exclusively in Near Sea fabrics. If it's not something handed down within the family it is sewn by me. I take a lot of joy knowing they are wearing the best and that it was sewn with love by their mom instead of shipped from overseas.
Here are a few pics of my Near Sea Creations for my 10 year old son. The short & pants have flat fell seams which gave them a very professional finish. The patterns used were by Simplicity and Kwik Sew.
I'll send some more pics of other creations. You'll probably recognize each fabric, but if you have any questions just let me know.
I've always wanted to suggest the idea of having pics for customers to view for each fabric to help them visualize how the fabric could be used. I know a lot of people, especially those new to sewing, have trouble seeing how a finished product could look. I'd be happy to share what I have so far.
So in addition to having these wonderful pictures, we're looking forward to seeing more of Sabrina's creations in the future!
(By the way, if you don't know how to make flat-felled seams, you can learn how to do so here. Sabrina is, of course, right; they can add a nice feeling of professional quality to your work!)
Sabrina also included pictures of an excellent bathrobe she made for her son, and of a set of pajamas and a nightgown she made for her kids. See why I'm jealous of her kids? Nobody's making things like this for me! :)
