Making Scrub tops and other works in progress...




When our daughter was young I made her a lot of dresses.  Lots of dresses.  Then she grew up.  Now she is a nurse and every now and again I get a phone call and she tells me that I haven't made her any scrub tops for awhile.  So I got right on that.  I really like making scrub tops.  I shouldn't say that out loud but it is a little bit like making little girl sundresses.  You can get a little creative and it is okay.  For this one I made my own bias trim out of the blue pin dot.  I also heavily top stitched all the pin dot trim.  It looks snazzy.  I think she will like it.  Scrub tops need lots of reinforcing in the seams because they get washed a lot and the pockets will get used a lot.

And other works in progress include all of this on the design wall.  From the left, Depression blocks from That Stash Bee, Road to Fortune scrap buster blocks and my Lucky Stars Block of the Month blocks.

Linking up with the Needle and Thread Network .  And I am back to school this evening for a meeting!  Phew.

  4. I love the design wall! Very interesting.
    I will remember the tips for the scrubs. Right now, my daughter's scrubs are supplied, because she is a temp. Once she finishes with school and becomes a full fledged nurse, I can make her some lovely scrubs like the one you did there for your daughter.

  11. WOW WOW WOW! How lucky is your daughter to have you to make some gorgeous scrub tops - I wish the nurses here would wear something that was a lot more cheerier than green.
    Love how your 3 quilts are coming along, esp. the Road to fortune!
