~This is for a co-worker’s god-daughter. Love the  soft pretty pink! We are in the midst of yet another polar vortex or some such mess. It is cold, gray, dark and oh so windy. I can’t wait for the light to brighten.

What are you working? I am working up my nerve to sew this sweet little day gown  and I can’t lie, I’m a little nervous.

~Trying to decide~

I have been away for a while. I am trying to decide if I should take a blog break, end my blog.. or just keep on blogging here and there. I just can’t decide.

In the meantime.. I have started sewing.  Just a few quick and easy dresses. I made two yesterday and I have fabric for about three more.  Give or take.  My daughter loves them and that always makes me happy.

New Look 6195  is so, so fast and easy. I used my serger (finally!!) and it is extremely quick and easy. I made view a, minus the ric rac.

Edith’s Twirly Skirt Pattern~

This is a CUTE pattern.. from Stop staring and start sewing! and I fell in love. Really cute. Easy as well. I will say my ruffle/lining got a little wonky, but it is cute. I made the 2t size, and I have my 5yr old modeling it. So, it might run a little on the large side although I have a small petite 5 year old. It is hard to say. I love the embroidery. I used sheets from my stash for the first try. Maybe I will put it in my shop… 
There are a few more photo’s in my flickr!

I think I did better on my 2nd go around with Billie Anne~

 

I originally used flannel for the body, but I did not like the way it held up.  This time I used cotton. Much better.  I used some Joel Dewberry and a Heather Bailey cabbage rose print.  I did a hand crochet trim around the neck and sleeves.  I used a vintage trim around her skirt, pantaloons, and apron.  I also went with wool felt eyes since this will more than likely be for a 2 year old.   Hope she loves it!

School is back in and that has had us hopping.  I battled a stomach bug for 2 or 3 days, and hubby had medical tests… whew, glad that week is behind us.    Mr. Bear came home with our kindergartner and they have been very adventuresome.   Now we must go and journal the adventures!  Happy Sunday!
