We're enjoying our lunch and I was thinking about heading up to sew...and then I realized that blogging about sewing from my comfy chair sounds WAY more fun! ;)
I really got into sewing this past year. Hobby Lobby kept putting their Simplicity patterns on sale for $.99, so obviously I had to buy ALL THE PATTERNS!!! Ha! At least that's how I felt at the time! Plus, I've been collecting gorgeous fabrics from my trip to Chicago, and Crimson Tate downtown, and of course, Hobby Lobby, so I put them all to good use!!!
My niece, Story, had a Princess birthday party last June, and I used one of my new patterns to make Liv a princess dress!!! It is fashioned after the Tinker Bell fairy dresses, and I must say, I can't actually still believe that I made this!!! She looked absolutely beautiful fluttering around outside...plus it's all pink, which makes it even more awesome ;)
this tutorial from Pinterest!!! As she is getting bigger, she can still fit into it, although this summer it will probably be a shirt!
this tutorial on Pinterest, and this adorable polka dot fabric around the same time, and I LOVE this little tunic!!!
