PINK dress...

After my daughter asked specifically for a PINK dress, this is what we came up with! I got the fabric for $4 a yard, and only used a yard....yeah for me!!!
However, now she's starting to request "more pretty dresses, please"....guess I better get sewing.....
Right after I finish my witch's hat!

Halloween Bags

I saw the other day some lady had made Halloween bags for her kids rather than letting them get those big orange pumpkins that are SO hard to store. I thought it was just a brilliant I "jaici-fied" it :)
I started by getting some fun black bags at Jo-Anns for $4.50 (after coupon) for a pack of 3....that's only $1.50 each :) I then pulled out my super fun bucket of Riley Blake Halloween Fabric. I like to make their stuff same-but-different, so I cut their initials out of the spider-web fabric (all same) then I cut their circles out (boys same, girls' different) and then added some ribbon (all different).
They have been carrying them around all day since I finished....and I am LOVING them!!!

My daughter is getting so big, that she needed a new dress...her other ones were getting WAY too short for her...some even showed her diaper!
So, I found this super fun pattern and decided to try it out. I used some super cute blue/purple-ish fabric that my Auntie gave me and made it. I was so excited, and I thought it was super cute.
So, I had her try it on.
When I asked her what she thought, she said, "I don't love it! There no pink!" It made me laugh, but then I realized what a true girl she is :) I had to go get some pink fabric to make her a new one...

New Bag

Last Week, Sew, Mama, Sew! had a cool little Bag week! They gave away some copies of Amy Butler's new book and did a Sewing Bag Swap...I mean, it was super cool! Anyway, one of the things that they did was put up one of the patterns on their blog. So, I immediately downloaded it and sewed it up. You can get your copy of it here. This gray and blue one is the picture of the bag that they had on their site! I debated back and forth about what fabric to use for my bag, then I remembered that my Auntie Anne had sent me this SUPER fun canvas...and I thought that it was just perfect!!!
Here is my finished product.... I think that I'm going to start using it as my diaper bag...I mean, it's big enough, right?!?! I can't wait to make another one, although my next one will be out of cotton.... :)
