OK, here's how this all started:
I follow the blog Little Birdie Secrets and I saw a post with this cute little purse clutch, which was originally posted on the blog From An Igloo.. I was trying to think of what fabric to use, and then it hit me: I have been dieing to use the American Crafts Dear Lizzy fabric paper for a sewing project!!!
I cut the fabric while it was still on the adhesive backing and then gently ripped it off the adhesive. I followed the simple instructions to make this little clutch!
I added a few of the Dear Lizzy crocheted flowers and an AC brad to one of the flower centers. The inside is even lined with some more Dear Lizzy fabric:
OK, so as was browsing the From An Igloo blog, I saw this tutorial for this adorable "In the Garden" shirred dress. I have never shirred before and it took me hours to figure it out. I finally resorted to going to my machines ancient manual, and guess what???? I have been threading my bobbin wrong since I started using my machine over 20 years ago!! Well once I figured that out, the shirring with the elastic thread worked just fine!!! I love this dress and these fabrics which i bought at Hobby Lobby.
I need to make a diaper cover for Charlotte when she wears this dress cause when she bends over you can see her hiney. So I searched for a diaper cover tutorial and that is when I stumbled upon Prudent Baby. AWESOME AWESOME blog! So many free instructions and ideas!
So now I'm totally in the sewing mood, and I bought a whole bunch of fabrics. Back to From an Igloo where I followed directions for the One Hour Sundress, which actually took only an hour!! I LOVE this dress and these fabrics. This was so simple to do.
I made a matching barette with a flower to match! The straps are a bit loose, but she'll grow into it!
So loving these fabrics, I wanted to make something for myself, so BACK AGAIN to Prudent Baby. There is a section there called "Hot Mess Mommy"...just like me. There is this cute cute little pleated purse which I made in a snap!!!!!!
SEW, this is what I have been doing lately!!! Now that I have had my sewing fix, I think I am going back to
